A Ceramics Art Exhibition Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of 9/11
Opening Reception at the Art League of Long Island:
Sunday August 28, 2pm - 4pm
Presented in partnership with the Suffolk County Art Leaders Association
A group of art educators from Suffolk County, under the direction of raku artist and Art League Faculty member, Gina Mars, have created a series of ceramic pieces symbolizing the regeneration, restoration, and recovery since that tragic day. The raku process uses a combination of fire and smoke to transform the ordinary surface of a clay piece into a work of art with dramatic bursts of color and texture.
Come experience the terroir (loosely translated from French as "a sense of place") of the North Fork of Long Island. Enjoy a guided tour of Raphael Vineyards in Peconic, where a Sommelier will lead you through the winemaking process.
Naturally, lunch will be served with a glass of wine to sample!
A gorgeous setting and a lovely way to spend the day.
Bus departs Art League in Dix Hills @ 9:30 AM. Bagels & coffee on the way.
This tour is presented in collaboration with Mark of Elegance Transportation

The second annual Huntington Awareness Day Parade and Fair to be held on Saturday, September 17th in Huntington Station will have two new elements added this year as part of the Town of Huntington's Public Art Initiative, providing new opportunities for artists, as well as for public participation. AChalk Flood of street drawings will offer community-wide opportunities for creative expression celebrating the Awareness Day theme of "Unity in the Community," while aHuntington Kinetic Sculpture Competition will add a new element to the Parade up New York Avenue.
TheChalk Flood, which will take place in designated portions of Huntington's northwest LIRR commuter parking lot on New York Avenue (from Railroad Avenue to Church Street), will have two components:
Communal Drawing Area - a space where any member of the community can make a positive creative contribution to the celebration of "Unity in the Community." Just bring your creativity! We'll supply all the necessary materials.
Featured Street Artists Gallery - a juried space where only those artists accepted in advance through submission of an application will be assigned a portion of the limited space available. An application form can be downloaded from the Huntington Awareness Day website: www.huntingtonawareness.org. Applications must be received by noon on August 24, 2011. Tips on street painting techniques can also be found at this web location.
TheHuntington Kinetic Sculpture Competition was inspired by Kinetic Sculpture Races held annually in Baltimore, California, and other locations nationwide. While the Huntington event, will not include either the "race" or the "all-terrain" elements of these other Kinetic Sculpture events, we're sure that it will offer ample opportunity for display of both creative imagination and engineering skills, as well as lots of fun for spectators and participants alike! Competitors will join other Huntington Awareness Day Parade participants in traversing the 1.3 mile Parade route in their unique human-powered kinetic sculptures. Judges will award prizes in a variety of competition categories in recognition of artistic creativity, engineering prowess, and expression of the Huntington Awareness Day theme - "Unity in the Community." Those interested in entering this competition can download an application form and competition rules from the Huntington Awareness Day website: www.huntingtonawareness.org. Applications must be received by noon on September 7, 2011. Tips on constructing a kinetic sculpture are also available on this website.
