Long Island Biennial Jurors
Three accomplished women with impressive art credentials will be jurying The Heckscher Museum’s prestigious Long Island Biennial for 2022. They will use their extensive skills to choose artwork for the always anticipated, Museum-wide exhibition. The jurors are Heather Carter, founder of Carter Fine Art Services; Gabriela Gonzalez Dellosso, contemporary fine artist; and Dr. Susan Van Scoy, Professor of Art History at St. Joseph’s College, Long Island.
“I am really looking forward to seeing the art submitted to this great exhibition,” said artist Gabriela Gonzalez Dellosso. “As a juror, I will be looking for art that is visually captivating and that engages the audience. Styles ranging from abstract to representational that have the “WOW’ factor — where the work successfully invites the viewer to look and discover — will definitely be at the top of my list of choices.”
In 2020, the Museum received more than 800 artwork entries, with 100 works selected for exhibition, representing artists living in Long Island communities stretching from Freeport to Port Washington to Shelter Island Heights.
