Beginning May 28, several hundred paintings and pieces of artwork were put on display to showcase MacArthur High School’s most dedicated artists at the 22nd annual Spring Art Show. The event provided students a chance to take a closer look at some of the techniques used by the best and brightest artists at the school and to encourage their peers to further explore their creativity.
“This show is a labor of love and the culmination of a year’s worth of work and collaboration between talented students and teachers,” art curriculum associate Frank Creeter said. “Beyond applying a medium to a surface, or simply satisfying an art assignment, students inevitably learned that art communicates, evokes emotions and can serve as an outlet for otherwise ineffable ideas.”
Many of the photographs, sculptures, drawings and paintings were selected for exhibitions and scholarships across the region, including the Art Supervisors Association All-County exhibit, Long Island’s Best, PTSA Reflections, Advanced Visions 10: High School Artists of Excellence and New York State Sen. Kemp Hannon’s Best in Town exhibits.
