Croton’s Liz Surbeck Biddle in Show in Brooklyn

Works by Liz and three other artists, Tomoko Abe, Ellen Hackl Fagan, and Jackie Welsh, are in a show throughApril 16Space/Craft, at A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn NY (212-255-6651).

The four artists have joint interests in experimentation, playfulness, and testing the limits of clay. Ceramics was the original anchor that soon became a jumping off point into other media such as cyanotype and paper. Biddle and Fagan use the process of the cyanotype on both ceramic and paper.  (The image shown here is In Flight, a 2017 work by Liz Surbeck Biddle and Ellen Hackl Fagan.)

The gallery is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 12-6 pm.

The Harrison Public Library has asked us to pass along this invitation:

Artists who are interested in exhibiting at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY for approximately one month during 2018 are invited to submit samples of their artwork for review by a Juried Art Committee sponsored by the Harrison Council for the Arts.

Eleven artists will be awarded one person shows by our jury, with three alternate artists chosen as well, should unexpected circumstances prevent artists from exhibiting according to schedule. Group shows (2, 3 or 4 persons) will also be considered provided these artists register and submit work together. For group shows, all entrants must be chosen.

If you are interested in competing for one of these shows, please bring samples to the Harrison Public Library, Halperin Building, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on Friday, May 19, 2017 between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. All artists must pick up their samples on Saturday, May 20, 2017 between 12:00 and 4:30 p.m.

Two-dimensional art only is eligible and the samples must be in the form of two different pieces of the actual art (preferably framed), 12 copies of the artist’s work either in the form of 35mm slides or photos or prints (all different/representational of the artist’s work), and a resume.

If you choose to participate, you will be notified of the jury’s decision by mail no later than June 30, 2017.  If awarded exhibit time, you will be asked to call Dan Briem at the Library (914/835-0324) and provide three choices for a monthly exhibit in 2018 (first come-first served; March is not available).  If Dan is not available, please be sure to leave a voicemail message.
