Brooklyn, N.Y. – Visual art in a variety of media is showcased in the galleries at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus this fall, and includes drawings, paintings and sculptural installations. The exhibitions are free and open to the public.

The Brooklyn Campus is located at 1 University Plaza, between Dekalb Avenue and Willoughby Street in downtown Brooklyn. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday/Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Humanities Building Gallery is closed on weekends.) For more information, call Nancy Grove at (718) 488-1198.

September 1 to 30 - Humanities Gallery, “Beyond the Kitchen, the Ceiling Soared,” an installation piece by Brooklyn artist Adam Brent. His sculptural installations combine architectural and organic elements to explore issues of nature and nurturing, order and structure. “I make work about domesticity, place and memory,” says the artist. The gallery is located in the Humanities Building.

September 1 to 30 - Salena Gallery, “Perception/Observation,” a group exhibition that highlights three great traditions: still life, landscape and the figure. Artists Xico Greenwald and Elaine Smollin, co-curators of the exhibition, present their own work, along with other New York artists Simon Carr, Bruce Gagnier, Eric Holzman, Hugh Millard, Thaddeus Radell, Saskia Sutherland and Kamilla Talbot. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, September 2, at 5:30 p.m. The Salena Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Library Learning Center.

September, 1 to 30 - Resnick Gallery, images from “The Amazing World of Music and Dance: Costume Designs by Anatolii Petritsky,” a rare 1929 book donated to the library by Dr. George Loewy. The exhibition is curated by Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus professor Julia Bock. The Resnick is located on the third floor of the Library Learning Center.

October 3 to November 4 - Humanities Gallery, sculpture by Brooklyn artist Richard Staub. His sculptural pieces often incorporate commonly found materials assembled through such techniques as wrapping, sewing, winding, tying, bundling and knotting.
