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.

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! Join our juried art competition, I Sing the Body Electric: Inspired by the Written Word.  Deadline to enter is March 15, 2019.

Artist of the Month:  Marlene Weinstein

I like to describe my photographic creations as “reality meets imagination.” I’m captivated by serene, minimalist subjects and am more interested in evoking a feeling with form and color than conveying absolute reality.

I’m so inspired by the local landscape of beaches, marshland, and woods. Our lovely island is undergoing transformation as nature and humanity takes its toll, and I feel compelled to share the everyday beauty that surrounds us.

I love to experiment, and I’ve recently become obsessed with the translucent beauty of Japanese washi paper. My current passion is creating one-of-a-kind mixed media artworks that combine Panpastels, acrylic mediums, washi, and, of course, photographs!

My work has been exhibited in many shows across Long Island and in New York City, and is held in both private and corporate collections.  I’m honored that my photography has been published in Black & White magazine, and two hardcover anthologies:  Paumanok: Poetry and Pictures of Long Island, and Paumanok II, Interwoven.

I hope you enjoy the images I’ve selected for the exhibit!
