Oyster Bay Town Councilman Louis Imbroto invites residents to enjoy the Town’s 6th Annual Art Gallery and Reception celebrating the Rotational Art Exhibit Program, which will take place on Wednesday, January 9 at 7:30 pm at the William P. Bennett Hicksville Community Center, located at 28 West Carl Street in Hicksville. The Rotational Art program is a unique program that integrates art and community, as local artists are allowed to display their work in local libraries, banks, government offices and local businesses on a monthly “rotational” basis.
“For 45 years, the mission of the Rotational Art Exhibit Program has been to present artwork to the public in the everyday spaces in which they live and work. This program not only features the diverse works of new artists, but also some of the most accomplished artists from the area,” said Councilman Imbroto. “The upcoming slate for 2019 is an exciting one, and will be shown off at the 6th Annual Art Gallery and Reception, where this year’s participating artists and winners of this year’s Rotational Art awards will be honored.”
While the 2019 is schedule is set, the Town of Oyster Bay is already looking for new artists and businesses to participate in next year’s program. In the Fall season, novice and experienced artists will have a chance to see their artwork approved and entered into ‘rotation’ where it will be displayed throughout the Town of Oyster Bay in 2020. The program is free for both artists and businesses.
A complete listing of display months and locations is printed in the program’s 2019 Exhibition Schedule which is available online at www.oysterbaytown.com under the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community and Youth Services. The 2019 Exhibition Schedule is also available at Town Hall South in Massapequa, at local libraries or by calling the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community and Youth Services at (516) 797-7932, where residents can also get any additional information about this popular program.
