The Long Island Biennial gives witness to what local artists see about where we are, where we come from, and what may be ahead.

2016 Long Island Biennial

The Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, NY is pleased to present the Long Island Biennial, a juried exhibition featuring work by artists of Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Inaugurated in 2010, the Long Island Biennial offers Long Island's contemporary artists an opportunity to show their work to a broad public, deepening the connections among artists and between artists and the communities where they live.  

The 2018 Biennial will be juried by Christine Berry, Berry Campbell Gallery, New York; Robert Carter, Professor of Art, Nassau Community College, State University of New York; and Bobbi Coller, Independent Art Historian and Curator. The Long Island Biennial is not a themed competition, but rather represents a diverse range of style, subject, and media, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, and mixed media. All submitted entries are posted on the website gallery page, providing a broad overview of current artistic practice on the Island.
