Exhibit Opportunity For Female Artists


xiRoslyn Heights resident Xiomáro, the nationally-renowned photographer, will be a judge for the annual Women’s History Month Art and Photography Exhibition, sponsored by Nassau County and to be held on Wednesday, March 2, at 6 p.m. at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building.

Nassau County female artists and photographers are encouraged to apply to be considered for exhibit.

The event, hosted by Comptroller George Maragos, will feature 50 to 70 of Nassau County’s most distinguished female artists and photographers in an effort to spread awareness for the arts.

During the event, entrants will be judged by industry experts and academic professionals in two categories, fine arts and photography. Judges will include prominent members of the art community with winners in each category receiving prizes. Xiomáro was invited by the comptroller to return as a judge. Xiomáro is a nationally exhibited and published artist, curator, writer and speaker whose work has been extensively covered by the media including The New York Times, Newsday, News 12, The Huffington Post and Fine Art Connoisseur. His photography is widely exhibited at venues such as Harvard University, Long Island Museum, Fraunces Tavern Museum and by members of Congress. His exhibit, “Theodore Roosevelt’s “Unseen” Summer White House” was presented by Maragos last fall at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building.

To apply for consideration and for more information, artists should contact either Barbara Powell at bpowell@nassaucountyny.gov or Anthony Genova at agenova@nassaucountyny.gov.
