‘Happy Little Trees’ Juried Exhibit Reception Re-Cap

Long Island Photo Gallery’s ‘Happy Little Trees’ Juried Exhibit Reception was outstanding! 

Our reception was held last night on June 17th, 2022 at the beautiful and spacious IAC Gallery in Bay Shore. It was great having Long Island Photo Gallery and the Islip Arts Council join forces for this happy exhibit. Thank you to Linda, Katrina, Jessica, and the others behind IAC for making all of this possible.

The Happy Little Trees juried exhibit currently displays 45 photographic works of art by LIPG, which are co-displaying with mixed medium art by talented IAC artists. 

It truly is lovely seeing all these versions of happy little trees. There aren’t any pieces exactly alike in this exbibit. Each artist sees something different and presents their work in a different way. 

Congratulations to all the artists selected to be a part of this exhibit!

Selected Juror – Sean Fitzthum

Sean Fitzthum is a member of the Islip Arts Council and a long-time friend of Long Island Photo Gallery. Bringing Sean on to judge this exhibition was a natural choice. First and foremost, Sean is an accomplished and award-winning photographer himself. Sean is fascinated by the study of light, which is essential for creating gorgeous art photography. Every time he is out shooting, he looks to build on his study of lighting and artful compositions. It is one of the key components that keep him behind the camera in creating fine art. Sean is a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and all of our experiences prepare us for what’s next.
