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..

b.j. spoke gallery presents “The Body of Earth” a solo exhibition by guest artist Jana Kris (gallery room 1)
“Earth is Woman. Woman is Earth. This primal connection is one that I believe most women sense within themselves. The Body of Earth series came to me while I was living and painting in Tucson, Arizona. After leaving New York to live in the American Southwest, the palette of my work became primarily influenced by the colors of bare stone and sky. I was utterly captivated by red-hued mesas and the ancient cavernous folds of the Canyon Lands. The Body of Earth is heavily inspired from my desire to reclaim the female image from the disconnected and often damaging representations that are so pervasive in advertising and mass media. In these paintings there is joy in the movement and flow of the land. There is dance in the richly muted tones of the woven bodies of women that curve and bend to create their world. They think and feel and are alive, while actually being the structure of everything......And always there is a reminder within their canvas universe that something greater exists.”

DESIGNERS OF FINE FRAMING SINCE 1957
Now celebrating its 55th Anniversary, the Huntington Arts Council is a legitimate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which enriches the quality of life of Long Islanders with programs and services that address the needs and interests of artists, cultural organizations and the community reaching over one million Long Island residents.
Marie is a classical artist who works in pastel, oil and watercolor. She has been strongly influenced by the beauty of our natural world and her inspirations spring from the grandeur of our National Parks to the old boots in the basement. It is her belief that through art she can help others to look at their environment with a more nuanced vision and experience the inner joy that stems from the discovery of an innate beauty not previously appreciated.
Holly Gordon traveled to Cuba to see for herself what has been a forbidden and unknown country, shrouded in mystery and heated rhetoric. A journey into the heart of darkness this was not! Her work cuts through the ideological fog with uncensored discovery and verve. There is so much more to Cuba that we have been prevented from seeing and knowing. This exhibition provides a glimmer.
Holly Gordon’s vision goes far beyond photography as we know it. She has established her reputation as both a fine art and documentary photographer creating break-through work in creative fine art photography and nature photography that captures the environmentally important essence of the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica and China.
Robin Horn of Clayvista Studio creates handmade tile and decorations for the home. Her pieces are inspired by nature’s many delicate patterns. Most works have imprinted organic material artfully arranged and then embellished with layers of glazes. Murals are Robin’s specialty and can be incorporated into kitchen or bath tile projects. Any style or theme is possible with her custom work. Robin also teaches locally, chairs the Collection Care Committee at the Huntington Historical Society, and lives in Centerport.
fotofoto gallery was founded in October 2003 by a group of Long Island based photographers desiring to promote experimental and traditional photographic processes and visions. The gallery is located in a beautiful light filled storefront at 14 West Carver Street in Huntington, NY.
fotofoto gallery artist, Pamela Waldroup, originally from the Midwest, is a fine art photographer and former art educator living on the north shore of Long Island. Mesmerized by the ambiguity of constantly changing perspectives shifted by even the slightest camera movement, Waldroup uses her camera to document that feeling that we all experience when transfixed by an instant in time. Her solo exhibit, “Obsessed by Details: Museum Spaces” offers a glimpse into moments captured at the Nassau County Museum of Art, Bayard Cutting Arboretum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
