Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School (HVS) senior Tianyi Zhao’s artwork is on display at the Hawthorne Valley Farm Store Café Gallery throughout the month of October. Last year, Zhao was awarded second prize at the 20th Annual Juried Art Show for high school students at Columbia Greene Community College’s Foundation Gallery located on the college’s campus in Greenport, NY, distinguishing herself among 28 works submitted by her peers from 14 area high schools.

On Zhao’s arts teacher Martina Müller described her as, “…a very accomplished and passionate artist,” who has, “made the greatest efforts over the last few years to learn as much as she can from artists in the area and at our high school to expand her already tremendous artistic vocabulary.”
