Farmingdale High School Artists Meet A Master

Two Farmingdale High School art students were selected to participate in a special workshop and exhibit with the famous graphic designer, Louise Fili.

 

Fili is a world renowned graphic designer who has created over 2,000 book covers, numerous logos, packaging and signage for restaurants and companies around the globe. Her exhibit, “Elegantissima” was recently showcased at Farmingdale State College and featured some of her design and typography work. 

 

Fili started out as a freelance designer before being hired as a designer by the legendary maestro of type, Herb Lubalin. A few years later, she was named the art director of Pantheon Books, which gave her the extraordinary opportunity to experiment daily with many different periods of design history. She later went on to start her own business, Louise Fili, Ltd., which enabled her to focus on the direction of everything typographic, Italian and food.

 

High School seniors Niamh Murphy and Alecia Russo, in Ms. Nicholas’ Advanced Placement art course, were selected to meet with Fili, because of their outstanding logo designs. 

 

Since Fili is a typographer and designer, this was an excellent opportunity for the two young artists.

 

Murphy and Russo began their day meeting Fili in the gallery and had the opportunity to get a close and personal experience viewing and discussing her work. Fili lectured with examples of her lifelong pursuit of beautiful graphic design. The students then had their own work personally critiqued by the artist. This not only introduced students to the work of a famous graphic designer but also allowed students the rare experience of being a part of the professional art world for a day.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in nearby Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

 

Event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event. 

It’s been more than 50 years since the Farmingdale High School class of 1964 roamed the halls of their beloved high school, but that doesn’t mean that the memories have faded. The class—the first to graduate from Farmingdale High—came together on Saturday, October 18 at the Marriott in Islandia to celebrate all of the good times past and make new memories as a class.  


Sports

3rd Grade Division

The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets.  Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half.  The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board.  The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards.  In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
