One of the pieces in artist Sherri Wolfgang’s exhibit Nick.e.lo.de.on.

The William Ris Gallery in Jamesport will showcase painter Sherri Wolfgang’s series Nick.e.lo.de.on, 11 life-size paintings that explore youth, dance, strength and the male form.

Wolfgang, who lives in Westport, Conn., is a contemporary renaissance artist known for her figurative works. She worked in illustration for 20 years and has been showing her work in galleries for the past 10 years.

“We’re known for variety and diversity,” said Mary Cantone, owner and director of the gallery. “It’s totally different from what I’ve done. I think this is going to work well.” (more…)

The latest exhibit at Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue connects the digital world to traditional artistic mediums in unexpected ways. The show, entitled “Hybrid,” will debut Saturday, Oct. 14, featuring works by artists Roz Dimon, Colin Goldberg and Qin Han.

Goldberg, whose work focuses on the intersection of digital and traditional mediums and has exhibited alongside Ferrone at other galleries, was the inspiration for the exhibit, said Ferrone, who opened the gallery in 2013. Dimon and Qin were also natural fits. (more…)

Room 41 by Holly Hunt is included in the “Abandoned Beauties” show at Clovis Point.

Photographer Holly Hunt first entered the world of the deserted four years ago, when she crawled into a hole in the ground four and “ended up in a basement somewhere.”

She was on a mission to capture images and, camera in hand, she’s been shooting abandoned prisons, hospitals, factories and residences ever since.

Now Hunt is presenting her first solo show, “Abandoned Beauties,” at Clovis Point in Jamesport. It includes close-ups of discarded dolls and toy trucks, images from a closed psychiatric facility, photos of defunct and debris-ridden factories and more. (more…)

Several years ago, Arnold and Karen Blair purchased a wooded lot adjacent to their Cutchogue home looking to ensure the peace and privacy on their waterfront property.

“Once we had it, we said, ‘well, what are we going to do with it,'” Mr. Blair recalled. “Now it’s like a little park.” (more…)
