HARRISON N.Y. -- Three Harrison High School art students were among those featured at this year's StArt Exhibition at Concordia College's Osilas Gallery.

Gia LaVista, 17, a senior at Harrison High School, contributed her work, "The Sandworm," according to a press release on the district's website .

LaVista said that her artistic drive began in kindergarten and continues to this day. She plans to attend an art university in the fall to pursue a career in either visual or media arts.

Cyle Rockoff, 16, a Harrison High School junior, contributed his work, "Comfort."

Born in New Jersey, Rockoff began making art at the age of 12. He is actively pursuing a career in visual arts and has taken classes at SUNY Purchase and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Sakura Tateiwa, also a Harrison High School student, displayed her work, "Tea Set."

Tateiwa, who moved to the United States from Japan four years ago, said her work attempts to incorporate her own heritage with the influence of western culture.

Held each January, the annual exhibition showcases works of art by talented area high school students. A record 30 schools from the Bronx, Westchester, Fairfield, and Rockland counties participated this year.
