About b.j. spoke gallery
b.j. spoke gallery was founded with the belief that a partnership between artist and public is an essential relationship. The gallery provides opportunities for artists to experience responses to their work and the public to increase its aesthetic awareness in deciphering the artist’s intent through contemplation and dialogue.
b.j. spoke gallery offers solo exhibits of members’ work, yearly invitational shows, two national juried art competitions, artist talks, the Artist’s Circle (open to all artists, gallery membership not required), workshops, live theater, and poetry readings.
In an effort to bring the under-served artist to the attention of the Long Island community, the gallery maintains an outreach program to individuals such as young emerging artists. Use of gallery space is extended for benefits, lectures, readings, and exhibits by not-for-profit groups whose mission reflects the objectives of the gallery.
