Application deadline is Dec. 11

The Art League of Long Island invites artists from Suffolk, Nassau, Brooklyn, and Queens to submit entries to the upcoming juried photography competition “The Art of Narrative” showing.

The exhibit will be at the League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery, 107 East Deer Park Rd., Dix Hills from Jan. 13 through Feb. 10, 2018. Deadline to submit applications is Dec. 11, 2017.

Whether you are professional artist or a budding photographer, the Art League challenges you to let your camera tell a story. Narrative art is art that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time. It uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations.

The Art League asks photographers to use their cameras to portray a moment in time, and invite the viewer to, perhaps, imagine themselves in the situation.

Exhibition Juror Rena Silverman writes about photography for The New York Times, where she has covered a range of artists from Chuck Close to Sylvia Plachy. Her work has also appeared in National Geographic, The Washington Post, and online for NPR. She is the author of Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment, a finalist for Best Photography Book in the “Seventy-Second Pictures of the Year International (POYi) contest.”

In 2015, she served as the Studio Art Senior Seminar’s “outside evaluator” at Dartmouth College. Learn more  at www.renasilverman.com.
