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 2016 Biennial was juried by Lori Bookstein, Lori Bookstein Fine Art, New York; Seung Lee, Professor of Art, Director of Fine Arts and Graduate Studies, LIU Post; and Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director/Chief Curator, Guild Hall, East Hampton. 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 will be posted on the website gallery page, providing a broad overview of current artistic practice on the Island.
Long Island Biennial 2016 is sponsored in part by The Shoreland Foundation with public funding provided by Suffolk County.
