Tomorrow, we welcome one of our most popular recurring exhibitions, our annual Visual Arts Members’ Show. This year’s show explores the theme of identity, asking the questions “Who am I?” and “What do you see?”
Each piece of arts tells something about its creator, and most pieces are for sale (with proceeds supporting our Visual Arts program). This year’s exhibition will feature 35 pieces from our members and three pieces submitted by ANIBIC (Association for Neurologically Impaired Brain Injured Children).
We are unveiling the exhibition in our first-floor Gallery tomorrow at an opening reception starting at 5:00 PM, and then our Gallery is open on weekends from Noon to 5:00 PM (Suggested admission is only $5). The exhibition runs until Sunday, September 13.
Over the next few weeks, we will introduce you to a number of our participating artists on this blog. While the majority of participating artists – 33 of them – are from Queens, this year’s display includes one from a Manhattan artist and two from Long Island, and the artists range in age from their 30s to 80 years old!
A number of artists plan to take part on our Salon Sunday event on Sunday, September 6 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. At that event, you can meet the artists as they present their works in 10-minute discussions.
