The  25th Annual Nita Elder Student Scholarship Show
November 16, 17 & 18, 2012  

At the Bellport Community Center, 4 Bell Street, Bellport.
Our Chairperson for the event is Rosamaria Eisler, former adjunct professor at Adelphi College and longtime SBAA member- with assistance from the very capable artist/educator, Mike Maas. We are sure to have a great show this year- we know this team gives 110%.

Reception for the Artists: Friday, November 16th 7- 9:30 (Awards at 8 pm)
Exhibition Hours:
Saturday November 17,  from 10 – 6

This show is the culmination of all our fundraising events, and we thank all of our members, volunteers, supporters, neighbors and friends for helping to make this happen! High School Seniors from all over Suffolk County will be eligible for the awards.  Judges’ determinations are based on a body of 3 works entered, where the students must show proficiency in various media. 

Brookhaven National Laboratory will give an award for the works they deem best represent the theme of "Discovery". The winner of that award is then invited to exhibit  that work at the BNL Art Show at Berkner Hall, at the Lab,  November 19, 20 & 21

Women Sharing Art, a non profit corporation providing avenues for women artists to nurture and encourage one another to further their artistic accomplishments, will provide two Special Awards in the amount of $250. each, to two deserving young women. Work selected must show student's breadth and strongest pieces as an artist.
