Student Artist's Work on Exhibit at the Katonah Museum of Art

TrainStationOlivia GaoScarsdale High School artists continue to shine! Just on the heels of being celebrated as “Artists of the Month” by Friends of Music & the Arts, senior artists Ben Dallal and Olivia Gao were chosen to showcase their work in the Young Artists Program and Exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art. In addition to Dallal and Gao, seven other outstanding, senior artists were invited to showcase their pieces, including Naia Beckwith, Angela Chiang, Rachel Coplan, Ella Hayes, Riley Meltz, Maya Regenstreif and Randee Smith.

According to the museum website, “The Young Artists program and exhibition has been an annual tradition at the Katonah Museum of Art for 41 years. With the goal of providing hands-on, learning experiences to aspiring artists, this unique initiative offers meaningful student participation in the exhibition planning process from beginning to end. Under the guidance of museum professionals, students take on the roles of artist, graphic designer, curator, exhibition designer, and installer as they work collaboratively with the KMA’s staff to mount this impressive exhibition.

Young Artists 2024 reflects the depth and diversity of expression among these emerging artists. On view are 365 artworks by high school seniors from forty-three schools across Fairfield, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester counties. The exhibition is a tribute to the talents of the young artists, the dedication of their teachers, and the support of their families. Young Artists illustrates the KMA’s steadfast commitment to providing dynamic museum education opportunities to our communities and fostering the next generation of creative thinkers and artists.”fanAngela Chiang

The show, (featuring drawings, paintings, photography, and so much more), is nothing short of amazing. As you walk through the art-filled rooms, it's hard to believe that the works were created by teenagers and not seasoned professionals.

In addition to supporting our very own talented, young artists, a trip to the picturesque Village of Katonah, with its quaint stores, highly-rated restaurants and cafes, is a perfect way to spend a wintery afternoon. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 to 5 and on Sundays from 12 to 5, so make it an adventure and be sure to check the Young Artists Exhibition before it ends on March 3rd!
