The Heckscher offers a three-part exhibit experience. The first is “Balancing Act” featuring three stainless steel sculptures by late artist William King of East Hampton. The second, “Long Island’s Best” spotlights 100 works from artists of 58 schools in Nassau and Suffolk chosen by a panel of jurors. The third is “Piecework” composed of pieces by contemporary artist Amanda Valdez, who creates colored, patterned and textured abstract paintings. Valdez will discuss her work and artistic process with curator Karli Wurzelbacher via a free virtual gallery talk on Zoom on Sept. 22 at 5:30 p.m. for members and sponsors (advance registration required).
