Artist Reception June 24 from 7-10pm

The Islip Art Museum is pleased to announce the 2017 annual open call Duality: Glimpses of the Other Side. The 2017 annual open call asked artists to seek out what’s hidden behind the veil of perception to reveal chaos in the mundane, beauty in the ordinary, and depravity in the wholesome.

Understanding the duality of our world can be an enriching activity, reflecting it through art showcases the wit and playfulness of the mind. One’s perception of their surroundings is often skewed through their personal lens and individual worldview.
