Long Island’s Best: Young Artists at The Heckscher Museum is the only juried exhibition on Long Island that offers high school students the opportunity to show their work in a museum.

Hundreds of works of art are submitted from schools across Nassau and Suffolk counties and approximately 80 are chosen for display in the exhibition.

The Rains are Changing Fast highlights artwork recently acquired by The Heckscher Museum of Art alongside a selection of key works long held in the Museum’s collection. For over a century, the Heckscher has been collecting and presenting art that explores the landscapes and social issues of its place and time. This exhibition, which takes its title from a 2021 video by Christine Sciulli, features new and beloved works of art that together reveal the diverse ways in which artists contend with environmental and cultural change. Created over a span of 175 years by some fifty artists, the works are united by shared engagements with landscape, allegory, and abstraction. Some, like Richard Mayhew’s Pescadero (2014) or George Inness’s The Pasture, Durham, Connecticut (c. 1879), present luminous, if precarious, visions of the American landscape. Others, including Deborah Buck’s They Had Stars in Their Eyes (2020) and Dorothy Dehner’s Landscape (1976), employ modes of abstraction that speak to issues of gender and materiality. The resulting visual conversations emphasize the Museum’s ongoing commitment to social concerns, environmental issues, and Long Island’s diverse communities.

Are you the parent of a neurodiverse teen or young adult looking to help them make social connections? It is with your child in mind that we’ve started our Gaming Social Club for teens and young adults at Valhallan Esports in Huntington. For too many of our kids, screen time has become an at-home solitary experience where we as concerned parents wonder if it’s an inhibitor towards them making social connections. At the same time, from their perspective, I get it- that screen doesn’t mock them or act cruel towards them as many of their peers do. It’s with that in mind that we’ve started our Gaming Social Club for neurodiverse teens and young adults at Valhallan Esports in Huntington. We seek to get the kids out of the house, have them around similarly situated peers, and use gaming as a foundation for fun and friendships. Our gaming arena has a cool ambiance that your kids will find attractive and makes it easier to get them out of the house (which I know can be difficult) Call 516-696-7766 for more information and please know this is a welcoming space for your child.
