This gallery is for our local artists, some of whom
are up-and-coming and some who are already very established and whose works are
in well known museums such as the Museum of
Modern Art in New York. You will
find a unique and elegant blend of styles represented in various
forms from natural materials such as chalk or oil to 100% computer generated
art. This web gallery is a springboard for the new and an extraordinary
opportunity to share in the finest from the more famous artists who live in
our Hamptons community.
We are thrilled to currently be featuring another super talented local artist. Enid Hatton began her acclaimed career as a top US medical illustrator having received a Masters Degree in Medical Illustration at the illustrious Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She has taught art on both undergraduate and graduate levels as well as having served on the Society of Illustrator's Joint Ethics Committee and the editorial board of the Association of Medical Illustrators. Enid enlarged the scope of her artistic training by studying portraiture, marine and landscape painting with some of today's most noteworthy artists. She is a prize awarded member of the New York Society of Illustrators, the Salmagundi Club, and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club. She has also won fine art awards from the Hilton Head Art League, the Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists and the Brush and Palette Club of New Haven. Enid is also proud to be a commissioned artist in the U.S. Air Force Art Program by invitation of the office of the Secretary of the Air Force. Her assignments have included location work in Mississippi after hurricane Katrina, and more recently at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada to chronicle the US "Un-manned Aerial Vehicle" technology. Pretty darn cool!
W are happy to present a rare collaboration of artistry by Andrew Hart Adler and Carolyn A. Beegan. Through the juxtaposition of photography and oil painting, they have created a new visual language - a hybrid of digital imagery and painting that successfully balances elements of both contemporary and classical artwork. These innovative pieces bring together elements of the emotional and material worlds represented through the flora and fauna they encountered in Central America. Adler's paintings are represented in museums and corporate collections in Europe and the U.S and Beegan has exhibited principally in the U.S. and has her work held in corporate and private collections of note.
Another recent feature artists is a unique collage exhibition Everyday Visions by Christopher Snow. It is similar to the work he does with his boxed constructions which he refers to as "microcosms of imagination" using such diverse materials as gold leaf, marble papers, lottery tickets, netted produce bags - anything that strikes his fancy. It's the alchemy of taking ordinary objects and combining them to make something to marvel at and make people scratch their heads a little that sparks his genius. Chris participated in the group show ArtPosition in Switzerland two years in a row and he did a two man show at Gallerie Greulich in Frankfurt and showed at a bookstore gallery in Tours, France. Locally he did a group show to benefit the Hayground School in Bridgehampton where the one pastel landscape up for auction ended up being the object of contention in a bidding war between two infamous guests. Chris has also done some commissioned work - almost solely for private persons with the exception of a series of pastels that are now hanging in a new wing of the Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York.
Our LOCAL feature exhibition is a truly special study on Baymen by Jonathan Lipkin - a photographer, writer and professor of digital media at Ramapo College of New Jersey. He has exhibited and published his work extensively. He is author of the books Photography Reborn and In the Realm of the Circuit, and has lectured nationally and internationally on issues of digital media. He lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and two daughters. This follows a really colorful exhibition of new work by Bruce Lieberman who has managed to capture all our favorite summer backyard scenes and ocean waves with the stroke of his paintbrush!
A very talented photographer to debut on thehamptons.com is Barrie Fisher whose work represents a photographer who doesn't like to stand still, but someone who prefers to learn about new places and people. She has worked with such companies as Boat International, Ski Racing International, American Express, Lange and Volkl. As well as working with such publications as Newsweek, Ski, Skiing and Powder Magazine, Reader's Digest and also, organizations like the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and The U.S. Ski Team. Barrie has years of experience photographing world-cup ski racing while traveling around the world, able to combine her passion for the sport and her passion for photography. Barrie's most recent work is our feature exhibit!
Another recent addition to our gallery is Amelina from Amagansett. Les Racines Du Ciel (the roots of heaven) is the result of an epic journey which brought Amelina to photograph Sir Richard Branson's Global Elders Announcement Event held in Africa. The journey continued to ULUSABA, The Magical private reserve located in the Sabi Sands of South Africa. These are some of the magnificent images captured on this incredible journey.
A prominent local artist is Brian Farrell, who is exhibiting his newest work for the first time in three years. His basis of physics and interpretations of the metaphysical layers of our universe are expressed in the surreal elements of his warm, colorful paintings which range from very bold to ethereal in nature. A substantial list of commissions include the Clinton Administration for the White House, Nato's 50th Summit, Henry Buhl, Governor George Pataki and his list of collectors and exhibitions is no less impressive.
Recently we debuted American Waters, a selection by Alex Kirkbride from his latest work. A few years ago, Alex Kirkbride set out on a three-year journey across the United States living in an Airstream trailer and travelling over 100,000 miles to photograph water images from every state. Alex's unique travels inspired an imaginative collection of photographs. The result is his book, American Waters, Foreword by Jean-Michel Cousteau, available now (ISBN# 978-0-7153-2751-7) at bookstores or www.alexkirkbride.com. An exhibit of the work was recently held at Hammer Galleries in New York. Jean-Michel Cousteau says, "Alex has pushed us to appreciate all water on Earth, no matter how simple or small. He shows us grandeur in the easily overlooked".
Another feature artist is Dora Frost. For the past year she has been working directly from nature on over size pastels of peonies. She is working on these in her studio in Manhattan and opening a stuido here in Southampton on Windmill Lane. Simultaneously, in her studio on Long Island, she is working on a narrative installation revolving around Proust's character, the Duchesse DeGuarmantes. Ms. Frost believes that for her, living inside of two or three completely different bodies of work allows for a sense freedom, eliminating the controlled idea of the limiting style identification /personality implicit in being identified with predominately one thing...beckoning in once again the thingness of the made object. To see how her art has evovled please have a look at her past exhibit which debuted with TheHamptons.com in 1995.
The photography of Herman Emmet is priced according to its category. Magazine and newspapers and all press inquiries will be given the magazine and newspaper rates. The rate for collectors is $850.00 for an 16 x 20 image. Prints from the renown Fruit Tramps series will be available upon request. Stockhouse and CD buyers will be given market rates. His photographs span the globe but are blended with a good selection of local color as well.
We are showing samples from the work of another commercial photographer, Renate, an extraordinarily talented woman artist whose work is well known both in the Hamptons and in Germany. She can be reached at 631.725.9865 for studio appointments. Another exceptional exhibition in TheHamptons.com Fine Art Gallery is comprised of two series of paintings by Sheila Isham from both her Cosmic Earth Bull and Cosmic Myth series along with some of her earlier works from the exhibition of Wild Animals.
A recent feature were portraits byJim Ceravolo who was commissioned to create six large scale portraits for the lobby of The Palladium Theatre in New York City. In addition to these, his portraits are in many influential corporate and private collections, including: Elton John, Rod Stewart, Hugh M. Hefner, David Brenner, Monique Van Vooren, Warner Bros., RCA Records and Schenley Industries to name a few. Ceravolo's portraits combine abstract and realistic work on the same large scale canvas.
Another prominent, local artist is Jo-Ann Corretti who specializes in Land & Seascapes and House Portraits. She is soon to be President of the Southampton Artist Association, and her paintings are on display in many places across Long Island. She also works on product design. Giclee' prints are available for all original paintings on archival, museum quality, watercolor paper, or canvas, stretched on stretcher strips, with certificate of Authenticity.
