“From the very first moment I crossed the bridge over the Shinnecock Canal and entered the Eastern End of Long Island and on to Montauk, I knew I had made a very special connection. I experienced a new creative energy that I had to capture. I had to capture the people and the beauty of these special places, including Sag Harbor, Springs, Amagansett, East Hampton, and Montauk. But it all began when I crossed that bridge at Shinnecock Canal.”

Bob Rothstein

Bob Rothstein’s collages of Montauk’s commercial fishing boats are strong, rugged and vibrant. The powerful images have been achieved by ripping, cutting and glueing found papers, on site, in all kinds of weather. Their beauty lies in the unique combination of color, shape and texture. “When it is windy, getting dark, or the boat is pulling away, I have to work quickly to capture the essence of the scene itself.”

Isabel Pavão

“Impressions Series” represents a phase of her work that she has been working on since 2014 and integrates as usual, intimations of past work, enduring patterns of inner experience and conceptual processes as a continuous work in progress being a reflection on the “act of painting”. The main source of inspiration comes from Nature, referring to her autobiographical surroundings, the garden, the sea shore and swimming in the sea.

Christopher Engel’s faces, figures and abstracts invite the viewer to enter their subconscious and allow his images to reveal themselves to their conscious mind.

September 7 Group Show

We’re pleased to present a group art show featuring the artwork of Peter Lipman-Wulf, Franklin Engel, Bob Rothstein, and Isabel Pavão.

Peter Lipman-Wulf (1905-1993) was primarily known as a sculptor and graphic artist, therefore his paintings were rarely the focus of exhibits. However, as a German of Jewish descent, but also labeled a “decadent” by the Nazi régime, Mr. Lipman-Wulf was forced to flee—first to France in 1933, then to Switzerland in 1942, until his final immigration to the United States in 1947. Particularly in Switzerland, where as a refugee he was formally prohibited from working as a sculptor, he diverted his creative impulse to works on paper. Along with exquisite sketches and drawings, Mr. Lipman-Wulf completed numerous impressive landscapes and portraits in the South of France and Switzerland. His compositions of nature—although overshadowed by the artist’s fear that all could be instantly destroyed—nonetheless have a hopeful, luminescent quality, as the settings and subjects appear untouched by the devastation of war. We’re pleased to exclusively present his watercolors here.

Franklin Engel was born and raised in New York City, and began his professional training at the Art Students League. He is proud to be a life member of the League. We’re pleased to present his oil paintings of familiar East End scenes. “From the very first moment I crossed the bridge over the Shinnecock Canal and entered the Eastern End of Long Island and on to Montauk, I knew I had made a very special connection. I experienced a new creative energy that I had to capture. I had to capture the people and the beauty of these special places, including Sag Harbor, Springs, Amagansett, East Hampton, and Montauk.

The Artwork of
Lianne Alcon, Joyce Brian, Muriel Hanson Falborn, Sonia Grineva

Reception: Saturday, September 30, 5-6:30 PM

September 28 Group Show

We’re pleased to present a group art show featuring the artwork of Lianne Alcon, Joyce Brian, Muriel Hanson Falborn, and Sonia Grineva.

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 olis with a watercolor sensibility.
