NOV 2023 / OPEN CALL: The Land of Sweets - Art of the Nutcracker

Exhibition at the Islip Arts Council Gallery, Bay Shore, NY / Dec 5 - 30, 2023
Deadline Nov 30 / FREE TO ENTER
Nutcracker Ballet Performance Dec 10 / 2pm

The Nutcracker, Opus 71, is an 1892 two-act classical ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, set on Christmas Eve at the foot of a Christmas tree in a child's imagination. The Nutcracker is loosely based on the 1816 E.T.A. Hoffmann fantasy story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” which is about a girl who befriends a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and wages a battle against the evil Mouse King.

For this Open Call, Islip Arts Council is seeking works related to the story - its characters, plot, scenery, and theme. This Open Call is free and open to all ages. All work must be ready to hang. Work must not exceed 70" x 70" inches.




Founded in 1976, the Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. Our goal is to present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for our diverse  Long Island community.
