If you are a patron of the arts, you may want to discover the next generation of artists. Perhaps one of these up-and-comers is your grandchild.

The "Colors of Long Island" exhibition at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook features artwork by more than 300 students as selected by art teachers from about 120 schools in Nassau and Suffolk. The works by students in kindergarten through grade 12 include drawings, sculptures, paintings, photos and computer graphics.
