Opportunity for Fine Craft Artists
“Seeing the Other”
A juried exhibit of fine craft
September 30 to October 27, 2023
At the Art League of Long Island,
107 East Deer Park Rd., Dix Hills
Juror: Jerelyn Hanrahan, artist, professor and curator
Deadline for entries: August 12
The Long Island Craft Guild is pleased to present an opportunity for fine craft artists in the tri-state area to exhibit their work in the prestigious Jeannie Tengelsen Gallery of the Art League of Long Island. Artists working in clay, fiber, glass, metal-jewelry, paper, wood or mixed media are invited to apply.
For this exhibit, make your entry more than just an object. Decide on your subject by forging a connection to something outside you–be it another human, an inanimate object, an animal or a foreign culture–to use your creativity to dive beneath the surface in order to feel its essence. Consider a medium or subject you have never explored. Stretch yourself by leaving off a step, adding a process, blending in a new element or turning your subject upside down, so you can see something new in it, its “other-ness”.
