North Shore residents, along with artists, art collectors and gallery owners recently gathered at the Nassau County Museum of Art for its members and press preview of three exhibitions of photography.
This marked the first time in recent history that the museum has devoted all of its galleries to the art of photography, according to a press release from the Nassau County Museum of Art.
Guests at this invitation-only reception were the first to see these exhibitions, which explore photography from its nearly earliest days through to the work of some of the most prominent contemporary photographers.
Two of the exhibitions, “Ansel Adams: Sight and Feeling and Light Works: 100 Years of Photography” were organized by Michigan’s Kalamazoo Institute for the Arts.
The third exhibition, “New Photos: Long Island Collects,” features more recent works of photography from the second half of the 20th century down to the present day — all on loan from Long Island collectors.
The exhibits opened to the public on Nov. 19 and remain on view through March 5.

The museum is located at 1 Museum Drive, Roslyn Harbor off of Northern Boulevard/25A, and is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
