We will have live painting and filming by the artist Erick O. Segura, as well as live music by Brian Ripps. This show is dedicated to the beauty that I was surrounded by from a young age. Growing up in a place like Long Island has always been a unique experience where I am able to create in isolation and explore abstract ideas freely in all mediums of the art world. For me, this is the only place where an original collection such as Suburbia is able to grow from.

The Huntington Historical Society’s Soldiers and Sailors Memorial building was built as the town library in 1892. After the library moved to its current location at the other end of Main Street in 1958, the building, still owned by the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Association, was used by the Huntington school district. From 1969 on it became home to the Town Historian. In 2000, the Association donated the building to the Huntington Historical Society. The Society undertook an ambitious eight year restoration project and re-opened it as a museum in 2008.
Today, the building houses the Society’s History and Decorative Arts Museum and features changing exhibits from the Historical Society’s collection. Part of the current exhibit, in honor of the bicentennial (200th anniversary) of Walt Whitman's birth, is "Chasing Whitman: Huntington's Prodigal Son", which explores Whitman's legacy in Huntington.

Kathleen Massi is a fine art photographer living on the North Shore of Long Island. She discovered her passion for photography after retiring from a career in the aerospace industry. The black and white images on exhibit are from her “Cattle Ranch Series” depicting close interactions from an intimate, pensive point of view between cattle, horses, working cowboys and cow dogs on the largest cattle ranch in California. The absence of color in this series allows for the viewer to become immersed in the intimate mutually reliant nature of humans and animals on a working ranch. The color images on exhibit are a collection of her imagined interpretations of farms, vineyards and coastal scenes from Long Island’s North Fork, New England and California.

Margaret Henning’s journey with creating art began about 9-1/2 years ago. Influences come from water scenes, natural formations, and natural colors. Henning loves the free feel of using inks for scraping and mark making on canvas or paper to create abstract shapes and patterns. Using different mediums in her art, i.e., molding paste, handmade papers, glazing mediums help to bring her paintings to life.
Maxine Jurow one of our Harry and Sandy Chapin Legacy Award recipients this year, is an intuitive painter; there have been many evolutions in her work but it is always about color. Jurow has been inspired by trips to Australia, the Caribbean, Morocco, the Southwest and Long Island where she lives. Through memories of these places Jurow constructs essential, abstracted landscapes. Maxine works primarily with acrylic paint on a variety of surfaces canvas, wood panel and mylar, each yielding a different tactile experience. Pieces include elements of pastel or oil crayon as well, redefining surfaces, creating layers.

The body of work shown began with a photograph bought from an antique shop on the north fork of Long Island. These artworks are a part of an untitled series that she has been making with a concept of storytelling, memory and visual histories, using a mix of found imagery with my own photographs to reimagine the story of these characters. Her works are printed using a combination of collage, digital scans of found photographs and an antique chemical process called Cyanotype to create many layers of texture and translucency.

Patricia Beary is a fine art photographer and art educator from Long Island, New York. Patricia's photography explores a variety of themes and is strongly influenced by her fine art background. She aligns herself with the pictorialist photographers who emphasize beauty of subject matter, tonality, and composition rather than the documentation of reality. She incorporates qualities synonymous with drawing to transform her photographs and enhance the narrative.

Richard Anello - i met a Man who Wasn’t There, Anello’s new, never-before-seen body of digital paintings invites viewers to explore their own interpretations. “I find my most recent work to be personal emotional allegories, rather than reflective of the weltanschauung I typically note. I see in reflecting over my work of the past ten years, two other pieces where this is atypically apparent, and therefore included them in this exhibition”.
Katherine Criss - Meditations in Paint and Pixels Criss introduces new art, including a challenging series of mural-size abstractions. In this body of work, she experiments with the impact size has on images. She expresses her artistic message through surrealism which allows her to examine subconscious significances of imagery, and explore the effect of unexpected juxtapositions of subjects.

Barbara Vivian Jones ~ "Talking in Colors" ~ June 6-July 11, 2020
Art Walk Reception: Sunday, June 14, 12-5 pm
As an abstract artist, Barbara Vivian Jones aims to create works that capture thought, emotion, texture, and movement. For this exhibit, she worked with acrylic and water-based oil paints on transparent plastic panels, allowing each painting to develop a translucent appearance. The abstract style allows her to explore the boundaries between the organic and inorganic worlds. As each shade moves and touches another, the paint creates forms evocative of Jones’ muse: the natural world, most notably the enigmatic beauty of coastal environments. Drawing upon waterside ecology for inspiration, the faint memory of sea grass and flora, marsh and bog, sand and stone is expressed with ethereal subtlety.
Though predominantly self-taught, the artist has taken workshops and critiques with several professional artists and artisans at renowned venues including Unicorn Studios and Educational Alliance in New York, and Wildacres Retreat in North Carolina. Jones has received recognition and awards for her work and has exhibited in New York art spaces such as View Arts in Old Forge, STAC Arts in Smithtown, and RHCAN Studios in Red Hook.
Jones holds memberships with BJ Spoke Gallery, Huntington Arts Council, East End Arts Council, and Northport Arts Coalition.
