Six students from Riverhead High School were recognized for their artwork in the student exhibition center at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.

Awards were given to students in their respective fields including: Brianna Daman for sculpture, Gio Maffetone for sculpture, Angie Flores Ortiz for drawing, Shakya Jeudy for digital media, Christopher McDonald for drawing, Hannah Witt for drawing and Carolina Marin for digital media.

Additionally, Daman was one of 100 students to be selected in the AMOCA High School Ceramics Exhibition. The virtual opening reception was held on April 9 and the exhibition runs through August.

“I’ve always had a passion for country and was never able to express it, so when given the chance to create something I was passionate about, I went with your friendly neighborhood sheriff to capture my love for all things country,” said Daman. “My intention wasn’t to create it just for exhibits, but I felt that this was a piece to be proud of and wanted others to enjoy this goofy cowboy as much as I do.”
