South High artists honored at Juried Art Show

Works of art created by six South High School students were included in the 2021 Nassau County High School Student Juried Art Competition & Exhibition at the Art Guild in Port Washington. Two artists from South High received honorable mentions for their submissions.

Participating artists from South High were Melad Asli, Jindi Chai, Serena Li, Sophia Liu, Nina Wang, and Derek Yu. Their art teachers are Megan Cashman, Safia Fatimi, Lisa Stancati, and Karen Cuchel, art department head.

Serena Li received an honorable mention for “Covid Self-Portrait” (pencil and watercolor) created last year for Ms. Stancati’s class. Derek Yu received an honorable mention for “Freedom” (pencil) from his Advanced Placement Portfolio, under the guidance of Ms. Cuchel.

A total of 148 submissions were received for the 2021 Nassau County High School Student Juried Art Competition & Exhibition, and 68 pieces were selected for exhibition. The show, which was on display from Nov. 7–27, showcased artwork in a variety of mediums including watercolor, oil, charcoal, colored pencil, and digital media, as well as some three-dimensional pieces. The submissions ranged in subject matter from self-portraits and still-life drawings to abstracts and social statements.
