Visit the Main Street Gallery tonight, 6-8pm, for the free "Objects Found" opening reception with light refreshments. The gallery is also open tomorrow, 12-4pm, and Sunday, 1-4pm. It is closed Monday for Presidents' Day. "Objects Found" was juried by Tara Leale Porter of Red Lotus Fused Glass Art. She interweaves her fused glass with found objects that have a time-worn patina. For "Objects Found", HAC invited artists to submit work that incorporated salvaged materials. During the creative process, artists were asked to consider still lifes, ephemera-filled boxes, assemblages, photography, 3D-collage portraits, etc. Congratulations to all of the artists accepted into this show: Beth Atkinson, Lisa L. Cangemi, Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Janet Costello and Heather Gottfried, Naomi Diracles, Terry Finch, Jim Finlayson, Anindita Ghosh, Bill Grabowski, Jeffrey Grinspan, Lenore Hanson, Beth Heit, Julianne Jimenez, Julianna Kirk, Liz Kolligs, Stephen S. Martin, Martha McAleer, Glenn McNab, Kristen Memoli, John Micheals, Gabriella Grama, Gail Neuman, Ellen Paul, Jonathan Pearlman, Howie Pohl, Denis Ponsot, Meryl Shapiro, Sally Shore, Lauren Singer, Toxic/Nature Studios by Scott Schneider, and Nancy Yoshii.

Art Call No. 1: Submit your work by Feb. 25 to "Bright Colors, Bold Strokes: Creations of Lowbrow Art" with juror Benjamin Owens ("Crocodile Tears" image featured). Lowbrow started as an underground visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, Calif., area in the late 1970s. It is a populist art movement with its cultural roots in underground comix, punk music, tiki culture, and hot-rod cultures of the street. It is also often known by the name pop surrealism and has a sense of humor. HAC invites you to be influenced by many of the creators of lowbrow, acid house flyers, advertising, animated cartoons, circus and sideshow culture, street art, kitsch, psychedelic art, retro Illustration, pulp magazine art, among many other things. Owens has worked on a variety of interdisciplinary projects. He has been featured in JUXTAPOZ. He is also an established illustrator having done work for ZOO YORK Skateboards, Blue Point Brewery, and others. Owens is currently employed as an advertising marketing VP. His work can be seen at Muneca Art House in Patchogue, and his solo exhibition opens April 2019. Learn more about the call at the link in bio.
