Heckscher Museum of Art: Long Island Biennial / thru November 11


The 2018 Long Island Biennial, a juried exhibition featuring exceptional art from contemporary artists across Suffolk and Nassau Counties, is now open at The Heckscher Museum of Art. Inaugurated in 2010, the Long Island Biennial offers Long Island’s professional artists an opportunity to share their work with a broad public. On view through November 11, 2018.

For 2018, the Museum received a record 351 artist entries, with 51 works selected for exhibition, representing communities from New Hyde Park to Montauk. Notable for this fifth edition of the Biennial, 38 of the 52 artists are first time exhibitors. With so many new names in the gallery, Long Island Biennial provides a unique and exciting space for visitors to see a snapshot of what is happening artistically on Long Island.

The jurors for the 2018 Biennial are 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.

Six artists received Awards of Merit for the 2018 Long Island Biennial: Beth Atkinson (Northport), Peter Beston (East Quogue), John Cino (Patchogue), Elizabeth Heaton (Amityville), Bill Shillalies (Massapequa), and Frank Wemberley (Sag Harbor).

“The art world needs as many venues as possible for new artists; this is so important and very much appreciated,” said juror Robert Carter. “The artist entries were surprising in how they varied in media use and subject matter – touching on nature, social issues and more. And, each juror brought their own unique perspective to the judging.”

In addition to the exhibition, all of the submitted works are available for view in the online gallery at LongIslandBiennial.org.
