4 May — 26 May 2018

The Huntington Arts Council is proud to present  12 x 12 – A juried exhibition, Art work inspired by the LP Record Jacket, Beth Giacummo, Juror. Opening Reception Friday, May 4th, 2018, 6 – 8 pm. The exhibit runs from the opening through May 26, 2018 at the Main Street Gallery, 213 Main Street, Huntington, NY 11743. Free event, all are welcome to attend.

The Huntington Arts Council invited artists to participate in our 12 x 12 juried exhibition, art work inspired by the LP Record Jacket. Artist/curator Beth Giacummo  is the juror. The Idea of the 12 inch LP has been a concurrent image in popular culture since the first one was pressed in 1903. The images on the cover grew from signage and marketing to works of art that represented the music and the culture in which both were and currently are being created. The album cover quickly emerged as a way to feature the work of talented artists. Its iconic format still maintains the visual representation for the auditory message enclosed within.

Congratulations to the following artists for being accepted into the show: Detlef Aderhold, Patrick Aievoli, Beth Atkinson, Quinn Blackburn, Winifred Boyd, Mary Brodersen, Terry Canavan, Wendy Curtis, Dawn Daisley, Grainne de Buitlear, Doris Diamond, James Dima, Patty Eljaiek, Terry Finch, Nicole Franz, William Grabowski, Jan Guarino, Rodee Hansen, Dan Hittleman, Melissa Johnides, Amy Kasindorf, Kate Kelly, Virginia Khuri, Karen Lynne Kirshner, Myungja Koh, Shreya Krishnan, Anny Lamsifer, Jacques LeBlanc, Ellen Liebenthal, John Micheals, Kasmira Mohanty, Michael Ricigliano, Toxic/Nature Studios By Scott Schneider, Roya Shamsdiba, Meredith Smith, Stephen Wyler

“It was a pleasure to juror the Huntington Arts Council 12×12 open call! I’d like to thank all the artists who took the time to submit work for consideration, there was a fantastic response and it made the final decisions difficult.  I’d also like to thank the HAC and Kieran Johnson for the invitation to be a guest juror, I enjoyed seeing so much new work. I look forward to meeting the artists at the reception and hearing more about their concepts and inspirations.” Giacummo said.
