“Master Copies/Interpretations,” on view from July 17 to August 15 at The Long Beach Island Foundation invites artists to submit to our major summer Gallery exhibition. Creating copies of masterworks as a learning experience is a time-honored tradition in the art world, and a serious endeavor for artists at all professional levels. Reinterpreting a masterwork is another strong tradition, as artists transform the way we see or understand the work by using different mediums, altering compositions, or riffing on a work from a satiric or humorous point of view. This exhibit invites entries in both categories: Master Copies and Inspiring Interpretations. We envision a show of skilled copies and fun re-imaginings that will amaze and entertain a wide audience.

We are honored to have Jennifer A. Thompson, Philadelphia Museum of Art as our Juror. Dr. Thompson is the Gloria and Jack Drosdick Curator of European Painting & Sculpture and Curator of the John G. Johnson Collection.
