Remembering Things Past
January 18 - March 29, 2015

Reception: Feb. 8, from 1-4 PM
Curated by John Cino & Jay Schuck

Remembering Things Past features foreign-born artists working in America. The artists in this exhibition all came to America at different stages in their lives and incorporate past interests, memories, and experiences of their home country into their artwork. The variety of their forms and subject matter reflect the uniqueness of their experiences. Remembering Things Past is an expansion of an exhibition perviously on display at the Patchogue Arts Gallery.

Reception: Feb. 8, from 1-4 PM

On view in the Museum Shop of the Islip Art Museum is a selection of paintings by Alexander Percy.

The Islip Art Museum announces its Annual Open Call for artists to contribute work in all media that is miniature in size. How small is miniature, you ask? Works should be small enough to hold in the palm of your hand or smaller! (8"x8" max without frame).

As has been previously done, we are calling upon the global community of artists to submit their work for an exhibition of contemporary miniature works of art.
