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 – December/January
Kevin Q. Gray is a fine art photographer living in upstate New York. His work spans digital, film, and alternative photographic processes such as dry-plate tintypes, wet-plate photography, and emulsion lifts. He received a BFA in Photography and Painting from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY, and an MFA in Visual Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University.
Much of Kevin’s work is based on nature and the landscape, but he also creates work that explores notions of nostalgia, memory, and history. Growing up near the battlefields of Gettysburg, PA, Kevin feels a strong connection to the land and how it can be used to record and evoke human history.
Kevin lives in Cherry Valley with his wife and a myriad of domesticated animals. He is a technician and adjunct professor in the Art Department at Hartwick College.
