Four Locust Valley High School students will have their art pieces displayed by the 2022 Nassau County High School Student Juried Art Competition and Exhibition from Nov. 6-26 at The Art Guild of Port Washington. William Koch, Sammar Khwaja, Clare Simon and Julianna Nabet combined to have five pieces chosen by their peers that range from paintings to drawings to a sculpture. Koch’s “The Walls of Our Youth” is a black and white, painted self-portrait that blurs towards the bottom of the image possibly alluding to his future artistic endeavors. “I’m definitely looking to expand,” he said. “I’ve never done a portrait of this size. I’m looking to make some more conceptual art in the future.” Khwaja combined her appreciation for her aunt, a painter and florist, and one of her favorite artists in her “Nancy Franke Study.” Khwaja, who is known by her peers as a talented sketch artist, stepped out of her comfort zone to bring this dark floral piece to life. “Trilogy” saw Clare Simon, who had a fall landscape painting selected by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County in early October, venture into a more conceptual direction with the three faces in the piece. Nabet has two pieces chosen with her drawing “Color Me Carelessly” and her first sculpture, “Dormant.” “It was a refreshing experience trying something I’ve never done before,” Nabet said of her sculpture. “My art process is very calculated, and I usually do a lot of research and planning, but with this it was free form, and I did what felt right and natural.”
