We're delighted to announce that starting this Spring, Book Revue will be spotlighting one local artist each month in our new Artist of the Month gallery display area. We've been wanting to do something like this for awhile... the bookstore is already renowned for its unparalleled collection of new & used books, its stellar presentation of author booksignings, (ranging from celebrity superstars to former presidents to bestselling fiction writers to local authors just starting out), and now we'd like to give a spotlight to our talented Long Island artists.
We'd love to show you our new gallery display area, except for one minor detail; it doesn't quite exist yet. At this moment, it is the sides of several bookcases, (not the most ideal place for hanging art). But we can assure you, construction is underway, so that by June we will have a workable wall area for hanging art. It is not going to be a large area.... most likely, about 7' high x 6' wide. However, it has some wonderful natural light, and will provide a nice showcase area for one artist each month, to hang 4 to 6 pieces (or 8 or 9 pieces, if the artist's work is smaller sized).
If you are an artist and are interested in possibly being our Artist of the Month, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
