Oakton Students Create Online Art Gallery

Rising seniors Ryan Hintzman and Gary Yeh promote classmates' artwork on new website

Oakton High students Ryan Hintzman and Gary Yeh have created an online art gallery to promote local artists' work, the Fairfax County Times reports.

The rising seniors came up with the idea for Stet Gallery while taking an art history class last year.

"The idea evolved out of a few conversations about art and the art market. We realized that there was a hole in the market; there are a lot of talented young artists with nowhere to sell their art, and there are a lot of young people who don't have $1,000 to spend on a professional oil-on-canvas work," Hintzman told Fairfax Times. "We thought that both of these problems could be solved by commissioning up-and-coming artists for prints that would be affordable but still of quality."
