The Guild Hall Student Art Festival (SAF) is a beloved tradition that encourages and showcases the artistic achievement and imagination of students, Kindergarten to Grade 12, on the South Fork of Long Island. 

 As a celebration of both Guild Halls 90th Anniversary, and the centennial of the Village of East Hampton, this years festival, Student Art Festival 2021: PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE, looks to both our shared past and an imagined future. Through the practice of art and design, ranging from imagery of natural growth and metamorphosis to Futurism and Science-Fiction, students across the East-End will collectively produce an exhibit that reflects our past, acknowledges and celebrates our present, and imagines a changed and hopeful future.  

This festival begins with a free public opening of the exhibition, a series of weekend family workshops, and concludes with an awards ceremony for high school students.  

The SAF is open to all students and schools on the South Fork of Long Island: Bridgehampton – Montauk. For information on how to participate, register, and submit work, please visit the SAF TEACHER/STUDENT REGISTRATION PAGE.
