The Art Guild’s Members Showcase reception

VIDEO (with music):Two days after Long Island’s orange sky, I went to The Art Guild’s June 9th Members Showcase reception and awards ceremony at Elderfields Preserve, Manhasset.

The Juror of Awards was JOSHUA RUFF, the Co-Executive Director, Collections and Programming, of the Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages. The Stony Brook museum holds juried art shows, where I’ve enjoyed exhibiting landscape photography I captured at Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve on Long Island’s south shore.
