A Sense of Place

Organized by Bastienne Schmidt

February 24 through April 9, 2017
Public Opening Reception: Saturday, February 25, 5-7 pm
Artist Talk & Gallery Tour: Sunday, March 26 | 3pm

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

A Place can be interpreted in multi-fold ways. Geography and the natural environment most certainly play a big role in it. This exhibition is envisioned as a dialogue among artists reflecting in different ways their own concept of ‘A Sense of Place’, might it be in a physical manner or as a conceptual reflection what an environment can be.

Artists leave marks to define their spaces physically and emotionally.
On the East End of Long Island we are surrounded by a unique formation of geology and geography, and by both natural beauty and the complexity of man-made markings. All of these aspects invite reflection of a sense of place and identity, and inspires the work of those lucky enough to live or spend time in this special part of the world.

Artists include Philippe Cheng, Louise Eastman and Janis Stemmermann, Christopher French, Saskia Friedrich, Mary Heilmann, Toni Ross, Bastienne Schmidt, Michelle Stuart,
Edwina von Gal & Perfect Earth Project, and Almond Zigmund.

Gallery Hours: Thursday – Sunday | Noon – 6pm
