William Floyd High School Student Artwork Recognized at Parrish Art Museum Gallery

Press Releases

Two William Floyd seniors, Bridget Reiffert and Sharon Montanez, were named senior honorees at this year’s Parrish Art Museum Student Art Exhibition.

Watermill, NY - March 7, 2014 - Two William Floyd seniors, Bridget Reiffert and Sharon Montanez, were named senior honorees at this year’s Parrish Art Museum Student Art Exhibition held from February 1 through March 2. Overall 15 William Floyd High School students had their artwork on display during this monthlong exhibition.
 
Reiffert was chosen in the Drawing category for her piece titled, “Unknown,” which depicts what guest juror Neil Slaughter described as “somewhat mysterious and perhaps foreboding.” He added, “Books suggest education…a civilized society. However, a skull and mask symbolize war.”
 
Montanez was selected in the Illustration category for her piece, “Ignorance,” which is a painting of people from different cultures with a poignant quote, “No particular race is the enemy, ignorance is the enemy.” Jurors noted that her piece conveyed “a very powerful message.”
 
Additionally, William Floyd High School art teachers Theresa Bianco and Susan Plunket took 30 students on a culturally enriching trip to the museum to view and discuss the displayed artwork.
