The Huntington Art Center is celebrating 60 years of designing and creating fine Custom Framing! In 2015, we re-opened the gallery hallway, and are now showing paintings, photography and prints, many of which are from talented local artists'. For this Art Walk, we will be showing the photography of Jeff Urquhart and paintings by Ward Hooper.
Jeff Urquhart says; “My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and the camera is my passport“ (Steve McCurry), and I use that as a foundation to interpret our coastal experience, whether it be here on Long Island or exploring the Atlantic coastline. I thoroughly enjoy capturing those images that encourage conversation and engage the mind. So, I invite you to share my vision and come see life as I see it, enjoy !!" He is a member of: the Huntington Arts Council, the Long Island Photographers Gallery, a participating artist at the Wine Cellar on Main, and the Huntington Art Center.
Ward Hooper's paintings have been exhibited in juried shows throughout Long Island. His numerous awards and honors include the "Peacock Award" from the Chelsea Center in Muttontown, NY for his painting in the watercolor category and received favored reviews from Helen Harrison, The New York Times. He was also featured in American Artist Watercolor Magazine. After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design, his career included over 30 years as an Art Director and award winning Design Director for the J.C. Penney Co. and as VP of one of the largest design firms in the country. Ward has been on the teaching staff at the Art League of LI for over 12 years, and his work is in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. He has also collaborated with Holly Gordon in the Brush/Lens project.
We will also have live music on the back patio from 3-5pm! "We are the KT Connection, an exciting Huntington-based musical collaboration.

Take this opportunity to get inside the 1892 Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Building, Huntington’s library until 1958 when it moved to its present location and a memorial to the men from Huntington who lost their lives in the Civil War.
Huntington Historical Society’s new exhibit “Huntington’s Gilded Age and Age of Guilds” highlights the civic growth of the village and Town of Huntington during the five decades from 1890 to 1940. Guild is defined as “an association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal”. This period also corresponds with the “Gilded Age” of Huntington’s Gold coast Mansions, which will also be highlighted in the exhibit. The exhibit demonstrates how the confluence of these two “ages” help formed the Huntington of the 21st century..

I can see the moon
- Mizuta Masahide
“A collection of abstract paintings on canvas and paper created over the last six months, with the blessing of the moon.” Lorraine Carol
PALIMPSEST - abstract paintings by Kevin Larkin “My new series of paintings Palimpsest combines abstract images with reworked elements, bearing visible traces of its earlier form.” - Larkin
For the first time the abstract works of b.j. spoke gallery president Kevin Larkin and gallery director, Lorraine Carol Nuzzo will be the featured solo exhibitions in May 2017. “We’ve both held solo shows at the gallery, never at the same time. I’m honored to be showing with Kevin Larkin. My decision to be an abstract artist, was largely influenced by my experience as Larkin’s student at the Art League of Long Island in 2013 and the ongoing inspiration he’s been at the gallery.” Lorraine
Two rooms of bold abstract works by two artists, each with a distinct technique and style. An exhibit to see!
In addition to solo exhibitions, artist members of B J Spoke Gallery will be exhibiting in the back room of the gallery.
