Student Art Festival 2021: PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE High School Awards Ceremony
The High School Awards Ceremony is a moment to celebrate and recognize high achievement and creativity in select high school artists whose work is exhibited in the Student Art Festival 2021: PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE.
The 2021 Awards are decided and given by celebrated artist and Guild Hall Academy of the Arts member, Clifford Ross. Ross has awarded 30 students from East Hampton High School and the Ross School within traditional categories from Best Drawing to Best Collaboration to Best Mixed Media, and honors unique to this year’s Festival, including Best Architectural Project, and the Social Responsibility Award.
This year the Awards Ceremony takes the form of a prerecorded video. In late January, Ross met with Guild Hall’s Curatorial Assistant/Lewis B. Cullman Associate for Museum Education, Casey Dalene, to share his thoughts on the Festival as a whole, and to offer individual congratulations to each awarded artist. This prerecorded awards ceremony is available for free streaming on our website and YouTube page through end of the Student Art Festival.

Clifford Ross is a multi-media artist who graduated from Yale in 1974 with a degree in art and art history. His work focuses on the beauty and sublime qualities of nature, using both realistic and abstract means - through painting, sculpture, photography, computer animation and stained glass. He lives in Sagaponack, NY.
Among his best-known works are his Hurricane Wave photographs, captured during hurricanes off the beaches of East Hampton while tethered by rope to an assistant on land.
His work has been exhibited and collected widely in museums around the world including the Museum of Modern Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. It has been the subject of essays by David Anfam, Quentin Bajac, Arthur C. Danto, and Alexander Nemerov among others. In 2015, MASS MoCA presented Landscape: Seen & Imagined, a major mid-career retrospective.
