Art works on display in the area

Located right next door to East Northport, the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington’s current exhibit features artwork from the 19th and 20th centuries.

‘Mirrored Images: Realism in the 19th and 20th Centuries’ explores realist movements beginning with 19th century France and the Barbizon movement through the American Scene painting and magic realism of the 20th century.

On exhibition are works of art by Jean-Desire-Gustave Courbet, Thomas Moran, Don Eddy, Raphael Soyer, William Merritt Chase, Leon Kroll, and Eugene Boudin.

Admission for residents is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors age 62 and older, and for students age 10 and older. Children under age 10 are free as are museum members. Non-residents are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for students. There is free admission for Huntington Township residents on Wednesdays after 2:00 pm and Saturdays before 1:00 pm. Admission is also free for active military personnel and up to five family members. For more information, call (631) 351-3250.

Many art locations use print companies to make reprints of paintings by local artists, which are then available for purchase at a more affordable price. This is an economical way to bring artwork into the home.

The exhibit can be seen through March 24. The art work is drawn exclusively from the Museum’s permanent collection and has enduring appeal. The museum is located at 2 Prime Avenue, Huntington. Museum hours are 10:00 am–4:00 pm Wednesday – Friday and 11:00 am–5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
