The Heckscher Museum of Art 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 share their work with a broad public, deepening the connections among artists and between artists and the communities where they live. The exhibition comprises 51 works, selected from 351 entries by jurors 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. Paintings, sculpture, photography, works on paper, and mixed media work encompassing diverse styles, subject matter, and themes are included, representing a lively cross-section of current artistic practice on the Island.
