The Heckscher Museum has announced the line up of 2021 Emerging Artists! The Emerging Artists Series celebrates contemporary artists through virtual “takeovers” of the Museum’s Instagram account @heckschermuseum. The 22 talented artists — selected from among applicants across Long Island — represent a variety of styles and genres. Congratulations to all the artists!
Beginning in February, two artists will be featured each month. The takeover gives artists a platform to show their work, share stories, explain their process, answer questions, and much more!
First up: Roz Dimon (February 10) and Gabriel Cruz (February 24). Dimon has long been painting with a digital brush. Digitally coded and created, a DIMONscape invites all to interact and experience its multiple layers and story. Cruz is fueled and inspired by the life of the city around him, and his paintings take on a dreamlike quality, with colors, shapes and perspective filtered through memory and experience.
