Student Arts Festival
Now in its 23rd year, the Student Arts Festival celebrates the young artists of our region and salutes their devoted art instructors, school administrators, and families who nurture their creative pursuits. Each year, schools from Bridgehampton to Montauk participate in our two inspiring student exhibitions. The museum features more than 3,500 works of student art that covers the gallery walls floor to ceiling salon-style. Part I of the exhibition features the works of students in pre-school, elementary and middle schools, and Part II features the work of our talented high school students.

Now in its 77th year, the Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition has often been referred to as the opening of the art season on the East End. It is the oldest non-juried museum exhibition on Long Island and one of the few non-juried exhibitions still offered. This lively and vibrant exhibition features works in a variety of media from more than 400 of Guild Hall’s artist members. Winner of the Top Honors award receives a solo exhibition in Guild Hall’s Spiga Gallery. Other awards are presented for Best Representational Painting, Best Abstract Painting, Best Sculpture, Best Work on Paper, Best Mixed Media, Best Photograph, Best New Member Artist, and numerous Honorable Mention citations, along with the $250 Catherine and Theo Hios Landscape Award. Every year, Guild Hall is privileged to attract nationally recognized persons in the art world to serve as Awards Jurors for this exhibition.
All Museum programming is made possible in part though the generosity of Crozier Fine Arts, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, the Helen Hoie Fund, The Lorenzo and Mary Woodhouse Trust, Melville Straus Family Endowment Fund, and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and Suffolk County.
