Embracing the goal to enhance and support the rich artistic talent on Long Island, LIM has created a special membership opportunity for visual artists, LIMarts: a collaborative arts group.  Designed for artists dedicated to creating a new forum within our cultural community, LIMarts offers space for the exhibition and sale of artwork, varied programming events, lectures and opportunities for social gathering with other artists and the public.  For information about becoming an LIMarts members, e-mail Alexandria D’Auria.

2020 has been a year like no other. Being closed to the public doesn’t mean we are closed to our creativity. Living during a time of uncertainty doesn’t mean we are paralyzed with fear. It means we adapt, we navigate and we transform. We find new ways to explore and share. Today our virtual doors are opening for the inspiring 7th annual LIMarts Members’ Exhibition, Every Day: Transforming Crisis into Art, presented online until February 14, 2021. 

This year we asked  the Museum’s collaborative arts group members; “What has your every day looked like?  How has it changed?  How have you been spending your time?  Has every day been the same or are you finding ways to make your days feel different?  What have you been doing to cope or perhaps you’re not just coping but thriving. Over 70 artists used their creativity and talent to answer these questions through their artwork, which includes outstanding examples of photography, oil and acrylic painting, sculpture, and graphic arts. 

The LIMarts exhibition has always been a year-end highlight at the LIM. While we will miss the excitement of gathering in the gallery this year with regional artists, the LIM is committed to continuing to bring the community together through the arts by offering this virtual experience.

Presented artwork that is listed for sale will be handled by the individual artist and not by the Museum.  The LIM  is sensitive to the current circumstances faced by artists during these challenging times and is committed to supporting them and the arts community, therefore all proceeds will support the individual artists and the Museum will not retain a commission.  

Please join us in keeping this important tradition alive from the comfort and safety of your home, as our hopes rise forward to a healthy 2021. 

Neil Watson, Executive Director of the Long Island Museum
