Winners - Showcase
Add to Calendar 18-01-2014 20-02-2014 15 Winners The Smithtown Township Arts Council is pleased to announce Winners Showcase 2014, an exhibition featuring the work of award-winning artists from STAC’s 2013-juried exhibitions. The public is invited to an opening reception Saturday, January 18, 2-4 pm to meet exhibiting artists and view their work. Regular Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 am-5pm; Saturday and Sunday, 12-4pm. Closed January 20 & February 17. Call 631-862-6575 for more information. Admission to the gallery is free. Stony Brook artist Judy Contrino is a self-taught artist who has been drawing and crafting all of her life. She paints with both acrylic and watercolor and enjoys using vibrant colors and contrast. She creates portraits in pencil and charcoal. Judith hopes her paintings move people and make them smile. Massachusetts Artist Alice Denison focuses on flowers in her art. “The flowers that interest me most are the ones on wallpaper, fabric, and paintings — the decorative ones, the ones that make no claim to meaning. The ones we walk on, sit on, eat on, sleep on, and wear…the backdrop flowers. Because these decorative flowers almost always remind me of something, some time, or someone, they have meaning. Because the meaning is associative, it is mysterious, and its mystery makes it more interesting still. It is this glimmering to life of an inert form that sparks my work.” Commack artist Lisa Fernandez has been a teacher and art educator on Long Island for 25 years. Working in oils, Lisa’s large-scale still life paintings use of bold colors and strong contrast. Lisa’s close attention to detail and composition skills allow her to create strikingly beautiful images. Amal is a fine artist and illustrator from Port Jefferson who delights in having brushes in her hands and bringing stories to life. Her illustrations sit somewhere between fantasy and realism and the theater has been an inspiration for many of her pieces. Amal has provided numerous illustrations to children's book publishers and editorial publications. She also teaches illustration and drawing. Port Jefferson artist Michael Kutzing is a self-taught painter who worked in the construction industry for 37 years. Over the years, he collected maritime paintings and was inspired to attempt painting himself. He was encouraged by those who saw his work to continue painting. Thirty paintings and several shows later he continues to grow as an artist. Setauket artist Elizabeth Louise sketched her drawings live during rehearsals at Theatre Three in Port Jefferson. “Capturing the character of actors on stage is a challenge. I do not have the luxury of having them pose for me during rehearsals. My degree from Maryland Institute College of Art gave me the training and confidence to combine, decades later, my sketching skills with my first love in the arts…theatre.” In the words of Brooklyn artist, printmaker, and bookmaker PD Packard, “There is an absolute law of harmony, accessible to all, which is an endless source of inspiration and knowledge that I rely upon when creating and executing my artwork.” A storyteller through her prints, watercolors and hand-bound books, PD Packard’s work is truly unique and thought provoking. Centereach artist Courtney Surmanek is a current bachelor of Fine Arts candidate at New York University, completing her final year. Courtney, who works in several different mediums including video, performance and material art, looks at art as a means toward community development and social change. She is excited to help young people develop the skills necessary to expand their scope of what art can do for the world Mount Sinai artist Burton Woods’ realistic paintings are inspired by places that are slowly changing or disappearing: quiet, flower-bordered lanes, brick walks, weathered wooden buildings and boats, sandy beaches and wind-swept marshes. Mr. Woods captures the essence of Long Island in his pastels and oils, sketching on site and completing his work in his home studio. STAC, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is supported by Town of Smithtown and funded in part by Suffolk County and Suffolk County Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=153640 Showcase true DD/MM/YYYY
