ISLIP ART MUSEUM 2017
Elemental Exposure: The Photography of Scott Farrell
Curated by Eric Murphy
January 15 - March 12, 2017
IAM Up Late after-hours event and reception January 28 from 7 – 10 PM
In support of local artists, the Islip Art Museum store exhibition space features Elemental Exposure: The Photography of Scott Farrell, curated by Eric Murphy.
Scott Farrell’s works are often derived from observing organic materials such as sand, stone, and wood, and how the effects of nature’s elements – water, wind, and extreme temperatures – transform these materials. Using photography, Farrell captures the reality of a given object, or moment in time, while simultaneously allowing for abstract representation or interpretation of that subject. The exhibition is on view from January 15 through March 12, 2017 with a special reception and after-hours event on January 28 from 7 - 10PM.
This exhibition is a special opportunity planned in coordination of the 2016 IAM Project Unifying which focuses on creating opportunities and merging Long Island’s creative clusters in efforts to address the lack of national awareness for Long Island’s thriving artistic community.
Participants are invited to join in as active players or audience members in the process of building structures. The process can be interpreted as movement, dance or a game. Through this physical interaction of seeing, interpreting and play a better understanding of contemporary art emerge.
The completed structures will then become a temporary addition to the museum show. Video too!
