Soliciting Artwork for a Paumanok Rising Again: Long Islanders Reflect on Climate Change

May 15, 2019

Dear photographers/artists:

We are asking for paintings and photography for an upcoming anthology of essays and artwork tentatively titled Paumanok Rising Again: Long Islanders Reflect on Climate Change. We will be working with SUNY Press to publish this collection with an estimated release date of May 2020.

Paumanok Rising Again: Long Islanders Reflect on Climate Change will be a collection of 20 photographs and/or paintings to pair with essays by Long Islanders (including the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties). Our collection has a goal of connecting place with people by focusing on questions of landscape, diversity and environmental justice in a time of climate change. The collection will reflect on diversity and complexity, as well as beauty and possibility, by drawing from writing and artwork from representative locations throughout Long Island and authors and artists living in those areas.

We are looking for paintings and photography reflecting the questions and concerns of environmental justice on an island with such dramatically different consequences for those of differing ethnicity and economic situations AND are science-informed.

The editors (Susan Cohen, Graham Everett, Mindy Kronenberg, and David Taylor) are committed to finding artwork which represents the broad diversity across the whole of Long Island and how we collectively have been/are being impacted by climate change. We are not accepting any other art genre than painting and photography.

Please submit a .tif file of your photography or an image (slide?) of your original painting with a 200-word description before 5 P.M., August 31, 2019 along with:
name, address (physical and email); location/setting of the artwork; and a brief biography
to the following email address: lislandcollection@gmail.com
Any entries submitted after the above time and date will not be considered.

We expect all solicitations and decisions to be made within the calendar year of 2019 and will inform potential authors about decisions by 5 P.M., December 31, 2019. Selected artists will be given one free copy of the published book.

Any questions about submissions should be sent to: lislandcollection@gmail.com
