The Art League of Long Island invites artists from Suffolk, Nassau, Brooklyn, and Queens to submit entries to the upcoming juried exhibition “A Quotidian Life: Finding Beauty in the Ordinary”. The exhibit will show in their Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery July 15 through August 5, 2017. Deadline to submit applications is Tuesday, June 13.

In this juried exhibition, the Art League asks the artist to submit two-or three-dimensional works addressing beauty in the ordinary or commonplace. This may be found in the quality of light or color, the surprise of a repeated form, or a glance between two people. Where do you find beauty? These works may be realistic or abstract. All mediums will be considered, with the exception of photography or video.

Exhibition Juror Franklin Hill Perrell is a well-known art historian, curator, and writer. His career at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor, New York spanned over twenty years, culminating in the title of Chief Curator. There, he curated over fifty major exhibitions and numerous contemporary shows, including Miro & Calder, Chagall, Picasso, School of Paris, American Realism, Between the Wars, Pop & Op, and Surrealism.

In 2013 he co-founded Artful Circle (www.artfulcircle.com) with business partner Debbie Wells, providing clients in the art community with museum services including curatorial, catalogue writing and design production, public programming, lectures and gallery visits.
