Elemental Exposure: The Photography of Scott Farrell 
Curated by Eric Murphy
January 15 - May 20, 2017

In support of local artists, the Islip Art Museum store exhibition space features Elemental Exposure: The Photography of Scott Farrell, curated by Eric Murphy.

Scott Farrell’s works are often derived from observing organic materials such as sand, stone, and wood, and how the effects of nature’s elements – water, wind, and extreme temperatures – transform these materials. Using photography, Farrell captures the reality of a given object, or moment in time, while simultaneously allowing for abstract representation or interpretation of that subject. The exhibition is on view from January 15 through March 12, 2017 with a special reception and after-hours event on January 28 from 7 - 10PM.

This exhibition is a special opportunity planned in coordination of the 2016 IAM Project Unifying which focuses on creating opportunities and merging Long Island’s creative clusters in efforts to address the lack of national awareness for Long Island’s thriving artistic community.


Duality: Glimpses of the Other Side
Curated by Scott Bluedorn
June 24 – September 17, 2017
IAM up Late with Double Vision & Artist Reception July 8 from 8-11PM

The Islip Art Museum is pleased to announce our 2017 annual open call - Duality: Glimpses of the Other Side. The 2017 annual open call asks artists to seek out what’s hidden behind the veil of perception to reveal chaos in the mundane, beauty in the ordinary, and depravity in the wholesome.

Understanding the duality of our world can be an enriching activity, reflecting it through art showcases the wit and playfulness of the mind. One’s perception of their surroundings is often skewed through their personal lens and individual worldview. Exposure to other viewpoints increases the ability to see beyond a singular observation and develop a more expansive perspective.

IAM Scared!

An Immersive Horror Experience April 1, 2017

No this is not an April Fools joke!
A linear, interactive, immersive Sci-Fi Horror experience based upon the works of late artist and musician, David Bowie set in the family mansion of the befallen astronaut, Major Tom. You and a friend are guests at his funeral where you will meet his eccentric family who are dealing with the loss differently.

David Bowie transcended time, art, and the constant shifting court of public opinion. He became influential to a myriad of people ranging from the UK Prime Minister to Kanye West. Since his death, Bowie fans have erected tributes that focus on Bowie as a fashion icon and multi-media persona. However, Fringe Immersive delves deeper into the subconscious.
