Juror, Kristin Cuomo
Work Featured on home page “Quantum Entanglement 35” by Irene Clark
Our gallery is currently closed due to damage to our water line from the hotel construction next door. The exhibit will be on display in our Main Street Gallery, 213 Main St., Huntington NY 11743 and can be viewed through the windows beginning on or around February 13th.
Artists were invited to submit work inspired by the following statement. A paradox is defined as something that contradicts itself but is nevertheless true, something that should not exist but defies expectations. Huntington Arts Council is calling for artists to challenge themselves and push the boundaries with what is possible with their art. Pieces that seem impossible yet exist anyway, exploring themes of the impossible and the contradictory.
“Reading the call for entries, I thought: Pushing boundaries, sitting with contradiction, defying expectation ? these are all niches in the human experience that artists regularly inhabit. Spaces where external and internal motivators set their intentions alight and sharpen their craft. I came to the entries expecting to be dazzled by paradigm, left wondering and thinking. This group of artists did not disappoint. The range of subject matter, media and form offers the viewer abundant fodder for the senses – and the mind.” Said Kristin Cuomo, Juror about the submissions from the artists.
