ABOUT LARRY SALLEY & THE LARRY SALLEY PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD

ArtsWestchester is partnering with The African American Men of Westchester in order to celebrate the life and artistic achievements of Lawrence “Larry” C. Salley who was an active member of both organizations. Larry lived and worked in Westchester County (White Plains) where he assumed the leadership roles of Deputy Commissioner of the Westchester County Department of Planning and Commissioner of the Westchester County Department of Transportation. In his spare time, he was a gifted photographer. His photos were recently featured in an ArtsWestchester exhibition called “The Photographer’s Journey: A Tribute to Larry Salley”.

An Open Call to the Westchester Community

ArtsWestchester Exhibition Opportunity: An Open Call to the Westchester Community

Submit creative works made during the coronavirus pandemic to ArtsWestchester’s curated exhibition, Opening spring 2021

  • Submission deadline is Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 11:59PM.
  • You will be notified of submission status no later than Monday, March 15, 2021.

COVID-19 has profoundly changed the contours of our daily lives. At this time of great loss and physical distancing, many of us have turned to creative outlets to help us cope, to express our anguish, and to gain agency when we feel helpless. Painting, photography, sewing, crafting, singing, writing, and other everyday creative activities are helping us to reclaim a connection to our friends, families, and self. We have found new ways to celebrate and mourn, to recognize and memorialize major life events like birthdays, weddings, and passings. We have found hope through new activities and new modes of communicating. We have documented our experiences in quarantine diaries and creative cookbooks. We have endeavored to protect our loved ones and those on the frontlines with handcrafted masks, or hand knitted quilts. We have painted the scenes and changing seasons from our windows, or captured the faces of our quarantine teams in photo or gouache. These and other everyday creative projects have given meaning and purpose to our lives at this unprecedented time.

ArtsWestchester plans to reopen its gallery after an extended COVID-19 closure with an exhibition of the artistic and creative projects that you’ve been working on since March, 2020. We invite you to share your creativity with us—your homemade puppet theater, your “covid cookbook”, your family zoom concert—and tell your pandemic story. We are open to ALL of your creative ideas.

The exhibition will open to the public in late April, 2021. The exhibition is intended to be presented in person at ArtsWestchester’s gallery, with a parallel virtual presentation. However, depending on the health guidelines and policies in place at the time, the exhibition may be solely virtual. Final exhibition title and opening date will be announced in February.
