The Huntington Arts Council currently has a call to artists for an upcoming exhibit, “The Winter Solstice: Darkness Into Light,” that will run from Dec. 8 to Jan. 6, 2018.
“The winter solstice is a turning point, not just astrologically, but also in our psyches,” says juror Laura Powers-Swiggett, who exhibits widely on Long Island. “Artists since ancient times have mined its rich symbolic, metaphoric and spiritual imagery. The visual possibilities are endless. ‘The Winter Solstice: Darkness Into Light’ is a theme that resonates greatly with my own work and lends itself equally well to abstract and figurative interpretations.”
The exhibit is open to all artists including full-time students.
The eligible mediums include oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, graphite, charcoal, acrylic, sculpture and photography.
Eligible entrants can also manually fill out the prospectus and mail the completed form along with images on a c.d. and payment by the Oct. 30 deadline to:
Huntington Arts Council, Re: The Winter Solstice: Darkness Into Light, 213 Main St., Huntington, N.Y. 11743.
