NOV 2023 / The Veterans' Wellness Art Exhibition

Exhibition: Nov 7 - Dec 2, 2023
Nov 10 / 5-7pm

The Islip Arts Council invited artists who are Veterans to submit up to three pieces of work (all mediums) to be considered for our Veterans Art Show. This annual show endeavors to bring awareness to veterans' PTSD and mental health. 

We invite the public to attend the special double opening reception of the Veterans Wellness Project Exhibition and the Friends and Family of Veterans Exhibition, Friday, November 10, from 5-7 pm, at the Islip Arts Council Gallery. The installation is expansive and quite impressive.

You'll be treated to a USO type show with The Golden Girls, a quartet that is like the Andrews Sisters. There will also be several tables of veterans services available. 

In addition, John Melillo, disabled Vietnam Veteran (retired) and East End Artist, will make a special presentation at the reception.
