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.

Exhibition Dates:

August 20, 2021 – December 19, 2021

Theme:

The Long Island Museum is thrilled to announce the 8th Annual LIMarts Members’ Exhibition, Fragile, which will be an in-person exhibition on view in the Cowles Gallery in the History Museum.

Fragile is being sponsored by Maryellen and Michael Lubinsky. Due to their generosity, the LIM is able to waive the usual commission and the artists will receive 100% of the proceeds on any artwork sold. The Museum is committed to promoting and supporting the arts and its artist members.  Additional Museum support provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

We are also excited to share that artists will be provided a 12” x 12” gallery panel on which they can create their work for the exhibition. After the challenges of 2020, we are eager to invite our artist members back and to give them the opportunity to share their artwork with the community. Over this past year, many of us have felt incredibly vulnerable but we have still managed to see the fragile beauty that is life. Fragile will coincide with the LIM’s two exceptional glass exhibitions; Fire & Form: New Directions in Glass and Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light that will feature beautiful, unique and fragile creations.

As we continue to navigate the changing protocols caused by Covid, we will not host an opening reception. Instead, participating artists will be sent four admission passes to bring family and friends to view the exhibition during regular operating hours.
