BHS 22nd Annual Winter Art Show
Celebrating the Arts in Queens!
Bayside Historical Society's 22nd Annual Winter Art Show, showcasing contemporary Queens-based artists working in a variety of styles and mediums, is now open!
This year, more than 50 local artists have submitted photos of their work to be exhibited in virtual galleries on the BHS website. We also invite you to visit the Student Art Galleries to see the emerging talent of 20 Bayside High School artists. We congratulate these young artists and thank them for participating in our show. New for 2023: We are proud to present a special display dedicated to the artwork of seniors living in long-term care in Queens. Bayside Historical Society thanks Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care & Rehabilitation (the corporate sponsor of our 2023 Winter Art Show), Forest View Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing, and Cliffside Rehabilitation & Residential Health Care Center for their participation. The show will run for the entire month of February 2023.
The 2023 exhibitions are now closed. Thanks to all who participated in the 22nd Annual Winter Art Show — see you next year!

Art Show Commentary
Once again, we are pleased to hold the BHS Annual Winter Art Show in virtual galleries on our website and in person at The Bay Terrace Shopping Center. The works have been judged this year by Neill Slaughter, Professor Emeritus, Fine Arts at Long Island University and Robert Mehling, artist and instructor at Southampton Cultural Center.
As in previous years the works are in various categories, each of which received one award and several honorable mentions. They are Drawing, Sculpture/3-D, Mixed Media, Watercolor, Photography, Oil Painting, and Acrylic Painting. Two new categories this year are Quilts and Folk Art.
We are grateful to our judges for the care and attention they have devoted to evaluating the work of the 53 artists in this year's show.
Bayside Historical Society extends its thanks to Parker Jewish Institute and Cord Meyer Development Company for their generous support of the 2023 Winter Art Show.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
