Huntington, NY - February 10th, 2016 - Nassau County female artists and photographers are encouraged to apply to be considered for exhibition in the 3rd Annual Nassau County 2016 “Women’s History Month Art & Photography Exhibition,” to be held on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 6:00 pm, at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building, 1550 Franklin Avenue in Mineola, New York.
This free 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.  Last year’s turnout was close to 300 visitors plus 60 artists.
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.
Long Island’s 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 or Anthony Genova.
