Two of our talented members will be speaking and showing their work.
OMI GRAY: I am a multi-faceted teaching artist, living in Harlem, New York. I create because it is part of my DNA. I inherited my passion to create from my Mother, Grandmother, and my Ancestors. I design and teach fashion trends through my textile designs. Primarily, the materials and colors I use in my designs are gifts found in nature. My process involves botanical printing, natural dyeing and fusing wool and silk together to create art to wear and art to adorn the home.
CANDICE DORSEY: Candice completed a BFA with Honors from Long Island University at Southampton. She has concentrated her work in the medium of clay for the past 5 years, primarily in the practice of Raku. Her work has been accepted in various juried shows on Long Island.
Come early for conversation and refreshments; doors open at 6:00 PM with a short meeting at 6:30 at the Syosset Library. For directions, see the link on the left or call the library at 516-921-7161. Meeting cancellations due to inclement weather will be posted on this site and the LICG Facebook page; members will also be notified by email.

With the threatened defunding of the NEA and the extreme polarity that has caused so much angst in the United States and abroad, LICG is calling for work that addresses the many concerns of the population at large in the current political climate. Your own expressions about jobs, immigration, climate change, the wall, health care, de-regulation, fake news, conflicts of interest, etc. are all fair game.
We hope to get a cross-section of visual representations which illuminate a wide variety of opinions and to start a dialog among visitors and members alike. Unwrap your feelings and make them tangible.
EXHIBITION JUROR: Joan Harrison, Professor Emerita of the LIU Post campus of Long Island University.
