ART DISPLAY @ HML
Call for Artists
Huntington Memorial Library is sending out a Call to Local Artists. We strive to celebrate local creativity and provide a venue for greater exposure to the arts for everyone in the community. If you’re interested in displaying your 2-dimensional artwork, just stop by the library and ask for the Art Display Packet which contains all of the information you need to get started. These materials include the application and guidelines and are also available on our website. There are no application fees and the selected artist will display their work for a full 2 months. This is a great opportunity for maximum exposure to people from all walks of life since 250 to 350 people visit the library every day.
Current Artist on Display – TERI STRATFORD
Born and raised in Walton, NY, Teri made her way to New York City and made a career in the textbook publishing industry as a freelance Photo Editor and Photographer for major publishers such as Pearson Education, McGraw-Hill and Macmillan. Today she has transitioned smoothly from editor to artist taking full advantage of the lush growing environment of the Northeastern USA, for Teri’s passion for spirituality, nature and creativity has finally found the perfect outlet….Leaf Art.
The idea for Leaf Art began with collecting colorful fall leaves while walking along a country road in the 1990s and making a simple collage. In 2010, the task was revisited and fully embraced!
All Leaf Art images are made with REAL leaves arranged on illustration board, usually with watercolor backgrounds. As the leaves fade and shrink quickly, each completed image is scanned immediately and retouched for final printing. The PRINT is the ART.
Leaf Art images are an expression of my love, appreciation and reverence for nature; a celebration of nature’s beauty, infinite variety and detail. Playfulness HAS to pop out too and appears in subjects chosen and image titles.
These are FEEL GOOD images! Enjoy!
