VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Congratulations to seniors Joe Brown, Amanda Schwartz and Gabriella Mussuto, who currently have their artwork featured in the Katonah Museum of Art’s “Young Artists” exhibit.
The exhibit will be on display in the museum’s Beitzel and Righter galleries through Sunday.
This year marks the 32nd annual “Young Artists” showcase at KMA, which aims to celebrate student talent and combine art with education. More than 400 students from 43 schools throughout Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess and Fairfield counties are participating.
“The whole experience is great,” said Ivana Masic, a Valhalla High School art teacher. “Art is another form of communication. The students get excited when someone notices the details in their art that they worked so hard on perfecting.”
For the exhibit, Brown created a grayscale drawing on paper of a rendering of an architectural bridge. Both Schwartz and Mussuto created colorful and abstract acrylic paintings that were inspired by a trip to artist Frank Stella’s art warehouse last December.
“Art is a personal experience, so they get to communicate with others,” said Holly Flannery, a fellow Valhalla High School art teacher. “The great thing about creating art is that it isn’t immediate, it takes time.”
The Katonah Museum of Art, 134 Jay St., Katonah, is open hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
