Now Garden City may rightfully be known as being ground zero for having an outstanding school system, stellar athletic teams and an incomparable music program, but a gander at this week’s issue of Garden City Life reveals that the hills, or in this case village, is alive with the spirit of art. Eileen Moynahan and Suzie Alvey were both recently honored by the Town of Hempstead for each landing a photo in the 2014 Town of Hempstead Calendar contest. This after third-grade students Vanessa Law and Gabriel Psilakis did the same in a calendar contest recently held by our publisher, Anton Community Newspapers. Not to be outdone, Garden City High School junior Katie Roscoe won the under-18 division of the 2014 Thames21 Photography Competition, in which more than 1,000 entrants participated. Lastly, Arleen Rueth Urban heeded my call for art submissions with three pastel portraits in this issue which are truly excellent. It’s enough to make you wonder if Garden City is pulling double duty as an artists’ colony.
