Ten Hackley artists had pieces featured in the Katonah Art Museum’s “Young Artists Exhibit”. The exhibit was on display from January 21st to February 11th, and featured over 400 pieces of artwork from artists from local high schools across the tri-state area. Seniors Hanna Mark, Carly Griffin-Fiorello, Samhitha Josyula, Demetria Yancopoulos, Olivia Weinberg, Carolyn Santangelo, Megan Chen, Delia Tager, Ariana Swei, and William Zhou all had artwork featured.

The exhibit culminated on February 11th with the “Young Artists Market” which is an opportunity for high schoolers who create crafts, clothing, and goods to sell pieces against the backdrop of the “Young Artists” exhibit. Senior Jocelyn Blockinger is a member of the Katonah Museum of Art’s Teen Council which helps organize both events, and find artists and vendors to preview or sell their work. Regarding the event Jocelyn said, “people tend not to take high school artists very seriously and they end up being very undervalued members of the art community. Our goal was to change that by having an event that exclusively promoted high school artists and allowed them to showcase their work.” The event takes place annually and those interested in displaying art, selling goods, or joining the Teen Council should contact Jocelyn Blockinger at [email protected] .
