Victoria Hartman is a Bronx-born artist living in Southampton, New York. During her student days in New York City, she majored in art at the High School of Music & Art (now Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School) and at The Cooper Union, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Victoria worked as a freelance book designer and has written several joke books for children. When not painting, Victoria loves to explore and get inspiration from the Eastern Long Island landscape and to recharge with the energy and visual offerings of New York City.
Lutha Leahy-Miller captures the luminous energy of ocean waves, rendered in Japanese ink and brush on paper. A second generation Hamptons surfer, Lutha has lived and surfed the world over, and is the confluence of many inspirations. His Skull Series artworks are a meditation on death, a rumination upon our inevitable demise, a reminder of the preciousness of life, and of the infallibility of ever–constant change. Tibetan Buddhist philosophy regarding impermanence, is the key to the skull series.
Lauren Matzen has lived on the east end of Long Island since 1986 and is a multimedia artist. She has studied with Paton Miller and has shown in local galleries on the east end: Southampton Arts Center, Ashwaugh Hall. Also at the Peter Mendenhall Gallery, Pasadena, CA, Nov 2019, and more recently at the Romany Kramoris Gallery. Lauren has maintained her full time Acupuncture Practice in Southampton since 1996.

Michael Albert has been creating art since his college days at New York University (BPA / 1984-1988), where he studied business. During that time, he became interested in art after visiting many of the great museums of New York City and seeing many great masterpieces, and soon after began making art in his own personal quest to create a masterpiece worthy of hanging at a major museum. His art has evolved from doodles and pen & ink, to serious wax oil drawings, to the cubist mosaic cereal box collages (Cerealism) he has become known for. In the past two decades he has been creating large-scale “Epic” collage works using the cardboard packaging of iconic consumer brands on various themes including: History, Literature, Famous Quotes, Biblical & Religious themes, Music, Lyrics, Clocks, Botany, Mathematics, Geography, Logo Montages & Color Studies. He is the founder/owner of Sir Real, a brand of fruit juice & natural foods found at specialty markets in the greater NY Metro area including at Schiavoni’s Market right across the street! Since the publishing of his first book, an artist’s autobiography titled, “An Artist’s America” (Henry Holt, 2008), he has developed a traveling Pop art enrichment program & hands-on collage workshop for all age groups called the “Modern Pop Art Experience”, which he has brought to over 1,000 schools, libraries, museums & other arts venues all over the USA & in Europe. This summer starting in July, he will be showing his work at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor for the first time. The selection of limited edition giclee prints on canvas, rare silkscreens, original collages and self-published offset prints spans 30 years of his art.
Photographer, Artist and Festival Producer, Roger Sichel’s prolific creative experience spans generations and genres. From creating one of New York’s first erotic film festivals with judges Andy Warhol, Gore Vidal and Milos Forman to producing rock concerts with the Doors, Four Seasons and Isaac Hayes nationwide, Roger identifies most as a cultural observer and photographic journalist.
Sichel has now entered the next phase of his artistic career and is choosing to explore neo-pop mixed media, inspired by his own life, as well as current events, while simultaneously preserving the legacy of his work in photojournalism.

Thomas Condon, who is a regular exhibitor at The Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York, is principally known for his lush landscapes and floral compositions which are inspired by the natural settings from his homes in the Hamptons, New York City and Florida.
A native New Englander, Tom’s architectural canvases, by contrast, are characterized by a sense of stark separateness, devoid of human presence and activity, yet filled with it. His work is clearly inspired by Edward Hopper.
Barbara Groot grew up in Southern California with the sun and light illuminating the landscape. Now living and working in East Hampton, she finds the light on the East End equally special and energizing.
“This energy has charged and influenced the work plus my ongoing desire to reinvent the immediacy of the ever changing moments in nature,” says Groot. “The paintings contain active and bold brushwork to pursue the energy felt in our natural world. A strong, personal and inventive layered use of color gives these paintings a fresh, lush and sometimes surprising view into the world around us. The use of linear elements further vitalize the brushwork.”
Richard Denning has studied at the Art Students League, NYC with twenty years of classes in drawing, watercolor, and workshops at Asilomar. Pacific Grove, California (near Big Sur), Hudson River School (near West Point). Denning’s main artistic interest is in figures and landscapes. His commission work includes views of San Francisco Bay Golden Gate Bridge, and Holiday Calendars done for commercial clients in each of the past 25 years.
