The Art League of Long Island is thinking big with its latest juried exhibition. Artists from Suffolk, Nassau, Brooklyn, and Queens were invited to submit applications to show large works in the League’s spacious Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.

Out of 259 works submitted by 115 artists, 39 works were selected to exhibit in the gallery by Exhibition Juror Bruce Lieberman. “The BIG Picture” will be on display from Saturday, May 26 through July 11.

There will be a reception on Sunday, June 10 from 1 to 3 p.m., and the public is invited to attend the juror talk in the gallery on Thursday, June 14 at 7:30pm.

An exhibiting artist for more than 40 years, Lieberman has been a force in the New York artist community. Originally from Brooklyn, he emerged in the New York City art scene in the early 1980s, eventually heading east to his current hometown of Water Mill. Much of his recent work is inspired by his bucolic Hamptons surroundings. He has exhibited in New York City galleries, and various galleries and museums on Long Island, including the Heckscher Museum and the Long Island Museum of American Art. His work can be found in public and private collections.  Lieberman also teaches Studio Art at Stony Brook University. To learn more about Lieberman, go to www.brucelieberman.com
