DESIGNERS OF FINE FRAMING SINCE 1957
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.

Take part in the self-guided tour of Huntington Village Art Galleries and stop by the Huntington Public Library. In the gallery will be Artist Steve Walker with his exhibit, Charcoal Art: A Detailed Perspective
A lifelong Long Island resident, artist Steve Walker, grew up in Long Beach and currently resides in Plainview. He is inspired mostly by Long Island landmarks, architectural structures and scenes that include locations from New York City to Montauk but also scenes from North America and Europe. His photographs allow him to create 3D perspectives using charcoal.
Mr. Walker’s drawings started as a hobby after he retired from the corporate world. He never attended art school or took extensive classes to learn how to become an artist. He was inspired by his mother, who drew some incredible drawings while being legally blind.
He enjoys capturing the natural texture of wood in his drawings and wants the viewer to be awe inspired by the composition, perspective and sheer achievement of the structures. Charcoal is his preferred medium and allows him to produce images that are visually bold while adding an element of drama. Charcoal itself allows the freedom to create intricate details with a fine point or can be used to smudge and soften the image when necessary.
Reception: Sunday, June 9, 1 – 3 pm. Contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org

“Strongly affected by our increasingly dystopian culture, C Sloggatt Wolf has responded viscerally to the recent maelstrom of political, cultural and scientific events in our world. Influenced deeply by Zen spirituality, the Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting, Archetypal imagery and Jungian psychology, her images reflect these ideas in a myriad of ways. Wolf is a Long Island native who was awarded a BFA degree in Painting from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and her MFA in Painting from LIU. The artist is an educator at Northport High School and works in her studio near the Hilaire Woods in Huntington, NY.
An award-winning artist and art educator, Wolf had a solo show recently at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, is on the programming committee at the Huntington Arts Council and has been inducted into the National Association of Women in the Arts.
