Artwork by Ross School students in grades 9–12 is currently on display at Part II of the annual Student Art Festival at Guild Hall in East Hampton. “The exhibition is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their talents as members of the local and international art communities,” said Jennifer Cross, dean of Visual Arts at Ross School.
Featured works include Amber Kuo’s Day-Glo rendition of Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night”; Brenna Leaver’s couture dress, inspired by Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis; and woodcuts by Teague Costello and Evelyn Liang in the style of German Expressionism. Cubist artworks and Surrealist collages by grade 11 Integrated Art classes are also on display, as are portraits and handmade books of drawings by Advanced Art students.
