|The Award Ceremony|
It took place at various places around Oyster Bay: Children displayed their work at Not Just Art, Adults took over Audrey Avenue near the bandstand, the Award Ceremony took place the at the Artist Club Gallery.
We at Think Long Island First had the pleasure to host the Young Adult (Ages 12 - 17) competition. We have enjoyed it tremendously. It was gratifying to see the audience's immediate response to the artwork on display.
There was a good number of entries for the first year of the show. Susie Gach Peelle, painter and art teacher who judged the Young Adult competition, commented, "nice cross-section of work and media for such a small show."
The winners are:
1st Prize - Rausan Borujerdi for Tehran #1
2nd Prize - Christina Lettich for Dragon Fly
3rd Prize - Julia Ryan for Portrait
1st Prize - Gabrielle Yeager for Knitting Time
2nd Prize - Halley Robbins for Floating Flower
3rd Prize - Briana Glynn for Family
The People's Choice award goes to Eva Mullarkey for Still Life.
Congratulations to the winners and warm words of encouragements to all competitors. We are looking forward to seeing your work at the next year's art show!
