Artist submissions now being accepted for The Art House Gallery in Manahawkin's
new curated exhibition coming this spring, "No Man is an Island." This exhibit is open to all artists in all disciplines including but not limited to: Visual arts such as painting and sculpture, Craft arts including ceramics and glassware, Performing arts including dance and theater, and Literary arts including poetry and prose. Each artist will create their own personal interpretation of the theme in their specific discipline. Samantha Palmeri, owner of The Art House Gallery and curator of the show explains her ideas behind the title,
"There is tremendous potential for a wide range of meaning and application regarding the term No Man is an Island. The original meaning intended by the author John Donne notwithstanding, in the hands of talented artists the possibilities are endless…
Consider the literal interpretation for those actually living on a physical island, such as, my beach replenishment affects your beach replenishment, or, another good one, every island needs its mainland. There is the physical connection of things made, as in, one piece of fused glass needs another to hold it together. There is the moral or even romantic view, the I-can't-make-it-without-you ideology. There is also the political environmentally friendly notion that each individual doing their part to recycle and preserve will have a positive effect on the entire planet." It may be helpful to look at John Donne's original intention, which is incomplete without another important phrase from this text, "…send not to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee." You can view more details at www.arthousegallery.net The exhibition will be on view through May 26.

Hi Fellow Artists.The 8th Annual LBI Artists Open Studio Tour will take place the weekend of June 22 & 23 this year. New names have been added who could not participate last year, but were interested for this year…so we are hoping to add new and some additional repeat artists to last year’s 14. We know that Sandy has had an impact on all of us…but hopefully by June, this tour of local artist’s on the island will give us an early opportunity to sell work to both visitors and islanders and show people that the Arts are Alive on LBI! Again, we ask you to please submit your application by the May 1st deadline..it’s just too crazy trying to get the website, brochures, postcards, etc completed and this year we are absolutely NOT taking last minute entries. The sooner we get the information, the easier it is for us. With that said, we would also like to get a early indication of who is on board…so can you please respond by contacting Linda Ramsay at email@example.com with either a yea or nay or call/text 609-970-3214.
