Ansel Adams once said, “When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” The Huntington Arts Council invited artists to submit work that meets at the intersection of visual art and music. Artists were asked to consider these questions as inspiration. Does your work exude rhythm, melody, lyrics, harmony, or dissonance from a social, political, or musical perspective? Does it elicit a reaction in sounds, words, or movement? Does it dance or sway? Does it move or move the viewer? Does it sing?

“…we sang to keep the dark away” was written by poet Emily Dickinson, and a century and a half later those words are still true. Whether it is lilting line of a kinetic wire sculpture, an atmospheric photo of a violin that almost reads as a mountainscape, or the joyful pluck of an instrument in beautiful pastel colors, indeed, across Long Island, painters, sculptors and musicians are still singing; and in the light filled galleries of the Huntington Arts Council, the dark recedes away.” Said Juror Keving McEvoy explaining his reaction to the entries.
