“Wind Against Tide” – Barbara Bilotta

“Wind Against Tide = Chaos on the Horizon,” featuring work by abstract expressionists Barbara Bilotta and Wendy Small, will be shown Sept. 7 to Nov. 11 at Greenport Harbor Brewing Company. The exhibit opens with a reception from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. The show will extend to The Square in Greenport, with artwork on view at Main restaurant and Meet tasting room.

Ms. Bilotta is known for her highly stylized acrylic and resin paintings, which will be joined by Ms. Small’s geometric, primitive paintings of ships.

 

The late Bob Belston will be honored as September’s Artist of the Month at Old Town Arts and Crafts Guild in Cutchogue. Mr. Belston, a mostly self-taught photographer, died in June. Many of his photos are of the North Fork. A reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8.

According to a press release, Mr. Belston “grew from merely taking pictures to making photos to creating images. Loving his art, he felt his secret was to be able to ‘see’ a subject, at the right spot and at the right time.”

 

Three North Fork artists’ works are featured in an exhibit that started yesterday (Thursday, Sept. 5) at Hampton Library in Bridgehampton. Maureen Carey, Jamie Farnsworth and Edythe Tomkinson are members of the Thursday Group, which meets with artist Linda Capello at the Southampton Cultural Center. A reception is set for 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. The show runs through Sept. 26.

A ‘Photo-Technic’ gallery talk with photographers Dave Burns and Gerry Giliberti will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Alex Ferrone Photography Gallery in Cutchogue. The two will discuss their techniques of infrared photography, lumen printing and solar plate printing. Call (631) 734-8545 to reserve a space.

“Land & Sea,” paintings by Riverhead artist George Camalich, will be on view Sept. 3 to Dec. 3 at the Riverhead Town Hall gallery. The show is presented by East End Arts.

Mr. Camalich, a graphic artist, has worked as art director for several advertising and communications firms. He studied art and design at Pratt Institute, the School of Visual Arts and New York Technical College.

Works in oil by Bernardo Casanueva will be shown through Sept. 30 at The South Street Gallery in Greenport. Mr. Casanueva is a native of Mexico and has spent time in Greenport and Spain, having studied at San Fernando Fine Arts School in Madrid.
