On June 12th, the William Ris Gallery kicks off its summer season with a group exhibit WORKING IN SYNCHRONY. The show will highlight work by painters Anahi DeCanio and Kurt Giehl with sculptor Katherine Stanek.
Anahi DeCanio is a multidisciplinary artist using mixed media, photography, collage as a form of expression. Her complex abstract landscapes encompass layer upon layer, each awaiting exploration. As viewers dive deeper into the works, subtle details that might have been missed upon initial glance are unveiled. Graffiti like elements and text, in combination with Zen and gilding with occasional collage elements produce a vibrant energy creating unexpected arresting works.
Kurt Giehl was drawn to the Hamptons for the amazing light and natural beauty. His seascape paintings highlight the subtleness horizon – where air meets land meets water. Each painting is orchestrated to not only capture the physical beauty of Long Island’s East End but to also capture a state of mind, atmosphere and aura of the images captured on these fishing trips.
Katherine Stanek has worked in bronze, stone and marble. She became intrigued by the versatility of concrete and began to explore the medium further and developed her own mixtures and formulas enabling her to manipulate the material in a way that works with her personal aesthetic. This marriage of content and craft has gained the attention of collectors and artists alike as she has been invited to exhibit her unique concrete sculptures in museums, galleries and sculpture gardens throughout the United States
The opening reception will be held on opening day, Saturday, June 12th from 4-7pm. The exhibit is open to the public. Dates of artist talks to be announced.
The William Ris Gallery is owned and directed by Mary Cantone who is dedicated to the importance of collecting original art and supporting artists.
The Gallery exhibits an extensive selection of original contemporary works by East Coast artists with a Long Island concentration.
