Art fans get to “walk the line” Friday night as East End Arts hosts an opening reception for its most recent art show, an all-media showing titled ‘Line.’
The reception kicks off at 5 p.m., lasting until 7 p.m. at the East Main Street gallery.
According to gallery director Jane Kirkwood, there were 221 entries and 42 were chosen for the show. The guest jurors for the exhibit are Hideaki Ariizumi, co-owner of ArtSites Gallery in Riverhead, and artist Debbie Ma of Calverton.
Ms. Kirkwood said of the jurors: “They were very much true to their linearity. Her work is all about lines and he is an architect and artist. He was surprising to me because he is quiet but has a great sense of humor.”
The awards went to:
- Best of Show, Neva Setlow of East Quogue, acrylic sculpture “Verticals 2014”;
- First Place, painting by Jeffrey Corbett of Yaphank, “Interzone 1” ;
- Second Place, ink and acrylic painting by Anna Jurinich of Wading River, “The Complicated One”;
- Third Place, photograph by Christina Stow of Hampton Bays, “Language”.
Of the ‘Best in Show’ award, the judges felt that there couldn’t have been a better expression of line and color. Commenting on the first place award, the judges felt that this abstract painting if done on a larger scale could be shown in any gallery in Chelsea. The judges said, “It has determined beautiful brush strokes”.
The art work will be on display until June 13.
