Curated By Eileen Palmer
June 19 – September 11, 2016

This year the Islip Art Museum's Annual Open Call challenged artists to 'think inside the box' by creating works in an enclosure of some form that engages only one viewer at a time. Artistically, creatively, and curatorially – quite a challenge!

Such a breadth of wonderful and curious objects was submitted. For the artists, this challenging limitation seemed to expand creativity. Like compressing a spring, once released artistic energy is sprung forth. This is evidenced by the diverse and extraordinary pieces on view. Each work is a universe unto itself, expressing ideas on relationships, ecology, aging, feminism, science, politics, and just plain wonder.

Featuring works by;
Olga Alexander, Berges Alvarez, Renee Andolina, Holly Black, Jackie Branson, James Battistelli, Kate Collyer, Monica Chulewicz, Ana Paula Cordeiro, Margaret DeLima, Krystle L. DiNicola, JoAnne Dumas, Anna Fredericks, Lauren Goldstein, Adel Gorgy, Crista Grauer, Carol J. Hansen, Bernard Hallstein, Ellen Hanauer, Lori Horowitz, Lorena Kalaja, Julianna Kirk, Janet Lust Ganes, David Lee Moneypenny, Eric Murphy, Lesley Obrock, Linda Rettich, Meredith Rose, Neva Setlow, Sally Shore, Rosemary Sloggatt, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Marsha Solomon, Mark Strodl, Hisayasu Takashio, Shira Toren, Gerald Walsh, Ching Wen Tsai, Leigh Yardley, and Tmima Z

In support of emerging artists, the Islip Art Museum Store Exhibition space will feature, Shapeshifter, New Works By Anu Annam, curated by Beth Giacummo. Through subjective intellectual interpretation and unconventional techniques, Anu Annam captures individual mental states, auras, and nuances of personalities in her portraiture, focusing on self-portraiture during times of introspection. She has become nationally and internationally renowned for her ability to capture the emotional essence of her subjects using her impressionistic to semi-abstract style.
