Westbury High School student Maria Romero recently showed her painting “Sunkissed Water,” at the Art League of Long Island’s ninth annual “Go Ape” Advanced Placement Student Exhibition. Romero was also awarded an award of excellence for her acrylic on canvas. The exhibit, which was on view in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery Feb. 27-March 13, featured 2-D and 3-D works by 122 students from 37 Long Island high schools.
Charlee Miller, executive director of the Art League of Long Island, selected the students who received awards for their outstanding work.
“The Go Ape show is always very exciting,” said Miller. “All of the artwork comes from within each artist’s soul, expressing themselves through color, lines, brush strokes and sculpture that makes the piece as unique as its artist.”
