Juror: Rena Silverman
Cultural Reporter, The New York Times with focus on photography
January 13 through February 10, 2018
Reception: January 14, 2018 - 1pm to 3pm
The Art League of Long Island´s 7th Annual Juried Photography Exhibition opens in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery January 13, 2018. Out of 481 photographic images submitted by 101 artists, exhibition Juror Rena Silverman selected only 60 to show in the gallery. Ms. Silverman will be giving a Gallery Talk to discuss her selections on Thursday, January 25, at 7:30pm.
In this exhibit photographers from Long Island, Brooklyn, and Queens were asked for their representations of narrative art. Narrative art is art that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time. It uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations.Exhibition Juror Rena Silverman writes about photography for The New York Times, where she has covered a range of artists from Chuck Close to Sylvia Plachy. Her work has also appeared in National Geographic, The Washington Post, and online for NPR. She is the author of Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment, a finalist for Best Photography Book in the “Seventy-Second Pictures of the Year International (POYi) contest.” In 2015, she served as the Studio Art Senior Seminar´s “outside evaluator” at Dartmouth College.

Art Scholarship for Combat Veterans at Art League of Long Island
November 11 through December 11, 2017
The Art League of Long Island is pleased to announce an art scholarship sponsored by Woodbury-based law firm Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, LLP. The Joseph J. Fenty, Jr. Memorial Scholarship will award two returning combat veterans, currently residing or originally from Long Island, with a formal art education at the Art League´s visual arts center in Dix Hills.
As supporters of the men and women serving in the armed forces, Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro partners were touched by Art League of Long Island Executive Director - and Gold Star Mom - Charlee Miller´s loving remembrance of her son Joe Fenty. As an Airborne Ranger & Commander of 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division, Lt. Colonel Fenty was a brother and mentor to the soldiers he commanded. On May 5, 2006, he and nine soldiers were killed while serving in the Kunar province in Afghanistan when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter crashed during combat operations. “I am grateful for Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro´s gift to our heroes returning from combat, and for honoring the memory of my dear son Joe”, said Miller.
In life he was a loving husband of Kristin, his wife of 20 years. Joe became a dad for the first time in April 2006, never having had the opportunity to hold little Lauren Olivia in his arms. After earning a degree in business management he was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant from UNCC Charlotte, and in the ensuing years he earned his masters in education from Troy State University. An elite athlete, he was a marathon-runner, an ultra-marathon runner, a cross-country skier, mountain biker, and kayaker. He also was a proud supporter of the arts and recognized how it nurtured the mind and the soul.
Returning combat veterans are invited to apply for the scholarship, two of whom will be selected to receive a scholarship. Nominations can be made by downloading an entry form from http://sskblaw.com/about-us/charities/fentyscholarship/ (or send an email to: Fentyscholarship@salsack.com). Veterans can nominate themselves or have someone nominate them. Entries will be accepted from November 11 through December 11.
