Childhood Memories Art Exhibition (St James, NY) – Call For Artists

Childhood Memories Art Exhibition (St James, NY) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Mills Pond Gallery invites artists to submit works for Childhood Memories, a juried exhibition to be held April 22 – May 20, 2023.

Memories are often the inspiration for art. Artists give life to the characters and environments of our childhood memories, recording fragments of dreams, snippets of passing time, and experiences that have shaped our lives. This call asks artists to explore childhood memories – early rituals, rites of passage, and innocence of early life experiences that celebrate the passionate world of childhood. Examples include childhood memories pertaining to a specific event or experience that has previously occurred. For example, recollection of an episode among friends or family members in a specific time (holidays), places (school), and/or and memories of the associated emotions of the event.

Entries will be judged on the originality and insight with which they embody this theme visually. Painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, photography, and printmaking will be considered. No digital art, manipulated photography, or video.

Selected artists will have the opportunity to exhibit in an historic gallery facility that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. They will have the opportunity to have their art judged by Seung Lee for awards $500 Best in Show, $300 Second Place, $100 Third Place.

Seung Lee’s paintings, drawings, and large-scale installations have been exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally – China, Italy, France, Japan, and Korea. He has received numerous reviews in the New York Times, Newsday, Kyoto Times, Korea Daily News and Art World , Art in Culture, Art Price, and Art and People Magazines.

About Mills Pond Gallery

Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. There are five gallery rooms and the facility can display an average of 60 works of art.

Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the circa 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.

Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island and the hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.
