The Edison Arts Society has presented Preston Romanienko, a student artist at Middlesex County College, with one of three scholarships.
The Edison artist received the organization’s Angelo Orlando Scholarship. “This scholarship will be used to purchase art supplies and will be used for me to further studies in the arts,” Mr. Romanienko said.
Conveying the thoughts of the visual arts faculty, Professor Susan Altman said he is a talented artist with an impressive work ethic.”His artworks are layered, complex, and frequently revised to get rich and effective results,” she said. “He accomplishes this by the obsessive focus that many artists develop to make art that is pushed to its best extremes. Preston has already mastered the essentials of formalism and composition. He is willing to experiment, take risks, and we trust that his new discoveries will be the result of thorough investigations and exploration of ideas. Even as we switched to remote learning, Preston is continuing to produce high-quality work from his 帝豪棋牌 and contributing to virtual class discussions.”
The other scholarship recipients were Mahi Vakil from J.P. Stevens High School, who received the Edison Arts Society Certified Kitchens Scholarship, and Louis Forgione from Edison High School, who received the D.J. Dittman Scholarship.
