(Long Island, NY) The Smithtown Township Arts Council is pleased to announce its Juried Fine Art Exhibition Childhood Memories to be held October 19—November 23, 2013 at the Mills Pond House Gallery, 660 Route 25A, St. James, NY. The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, October 19, 2-4 pm to meet the participating artists and view their work.
Exhibition juror Seung Lee’s exhibit call for entries noted that Memories are often the inspiration for art. Artists give life to the characters and environments of our childhood memories, recording fragments of dreams, snippets of passing time, and experiences that have shaped our lives. The call asked artists to explore the early rituals, the rites of passage, and the innocence of early life experiences that celebrate the passionate world of childhood. Seung Lee is a Korean-American contemporary artist. He is a Professor of Art at Long Island University, Post Campus, where he is a director of Fine Arts and Graduate Studies. His paintings, drawings, and large-scale installations have been exhibited extensively in the US as well as internationally in China, Italy, France, Japan, and Korea.
