Now open! Our new spring exhibition, “Long Road to Freedom: Slavery on Long Island”.
This exhibit will take you through three tenacious centuries of Long Island history and the enslavement of African Americans. From the first Africans that were brought to the ports of New Amsterdam in 1626 to an exuberant freedom movement during 1827 in the State of New York. 
We would like you to come along and take this “Long Road to Freedom”. .

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Long Island Museum to you! 
Shepard’s first milestone piece as a professional portrait painter was of his wife, Elizabeth Elliott Mount, completed in 1838, a year after they were married. This painting was exhibited in 1838 at the National Academy of Design. The next image is a letter composed to Shepard from his darling wife Elizabeth, who expresses her complete adoration for him. Below transcribes her loving words to her husband.

Elizabeth Elliot Mount to her husband Shepard Alonzo Mount,
.
. “Dear Shepard If in the space of one short week can effect so much of perfect happiness to me, what life do I have to look forward to in my days when I shall be enjoying your perpetual society; when I shall be more indissolubly thine. In expectation of this do I worship with more than Persian adoration the missing of that bright Sun of hope which shall dispel every cloud that hitherto enrapt my soul in what seemed an enduring dark; but as this happiness may now be mine. `Tis said to be the lot of humanity is to be continually after something we can never attain, and what desire have I beyond the wish of dwelling forever with you; none; no other thought can find a lodgment in the most distant ___ of my heart. Them pleasures I may never know, if I do not nothing shall ever rob me of the inescapable (sic) joy of loving you. No there are feelings which the ____ing hand of time, nor swift variety of scenes can never change”. May 15, 1827

Introducing the #LIMarts Artist of the Month for January 2019 - Linda Louis! ‘INHERIT THE LAND’ Series ‘Inherit the Land’ aims to establish a connection to nature as it existed, unblemished, before time began. The paintings shown here represent 18 in this series. 
My motivation is a reverence for our precious Earth and beyond … belief in environmental protection and respect for nature’s richness, beauty and resources. 
My wish is to offer a soul-cleansing virtual journey, a breather that initiates calm and offers you a window into a beautiful world.

I paint trees in my ‘Virgin Forest’ Series ….. marshlands, water and seaweed in ‘Figment’ Series ….. the moon in ‘Mother of Tides’ Series ….. the stars in ‘SunGoddess’ Series.

Journey with me to Earth, moon and stars and visit www.lindalouisart.com. 
Contact me at linda@lindalouisart.com.

Visit The Long Island Museum all month long to see Linda's artwork on view in the Visitors Center. Admission is free!
