The Artwork of
Lianne Alcon, Joyce Brian, Muriel Hanson Falborn, Sonia Grineva
Reception: Saturday, September 30, 5-6:30 PM
Lianne Alcon is an expressionistic painter who paints images viewed by an experienced, discerning eye for the essential. Yet her painting style is loose—in contrast to her disciplined approach—and it frequently incorporates swirling strokes and liberal use of her brushes. Alcon uses that contrasting perception and expression—whether painting flamenco dancers or sceneries from Spain and New York City, both favorite subjects—to uniquely capture their spirit.
Joyce Brian is an accomplished artist and teacher and has been an artist since the age of two. Joyce has had many solo and group exhibitions for the past 40 years and has been awarded prizes at the Nassau County Museum and in numerous art fairs. She was a member of the Northport Gallery which was a cooperative venture for ten years. She has been an art teacher for 30 years. Joyce spends summers in Italy where she has artwork on permanent display in the town of Brescia. Her inspirations come from the landscapes and light of Italy as well as from the eastern end of Long Island.
Muriel Hanson Falborn, artist and landscape designer, has seen hundreds of gardens, parks, and homes whose scenes have inspired her by their vitality that will resonate with viewers. The natural world meets architecture and design, counteracting each other, taming wildness, providing structure and organization, rest and joy.
We are pleased to present floral works by Sonia Grineva, an internationally distinguished plein air painter who has traveled extensively and drawn inspiration for her art from many of the world’s iconic sites; Venice, Monte Carlo, Prague. Her work is exquisite – painted in a light, airy manner – in oils with a watercolor sensibility.
