We find ourselves awakening, as though from a long slumber. The slow recovery from the pandemic forcing us to relate to Rip Van Winkle’s surprise to find a changing world. Spring is bursting forth with life again, but that is not all. The world around us is, indeed, awakening to changing social, political and environmental landscapes as well. The Art League of Long Island asks you to share with us your work that features your expression of our world as it acclimates to a new normal.

This is a national exhibit, open to all artists residing in the United States of America.  Entry is limited to 5 works not previously exhibited in another juried ALLI show, one of which may be selected by the juror for admission.  Two- and three-dimensional work in any medium may be submitted, including photography and fine craft. Sorry, no videos.

The Art League is honored to have Kathleen Gurchie serve as juror for the Awakening exhibition. She is a member of the Art League of Long Island’s Board of Directors.
