East End Arts is pleased to announce a new art invitational exhibition at the Southampton Cultural Center featuring five regional photographers: “…As Humanly Possible”. This art show is for art and photography enthusiasts to experience the human condition around the world. Strong facial expressions, deplorable living conditions as well as the more fortunate society are the subjects to expect in this exhibit. The exhibition begins Tuesday, February 28, 2017 and will be on display at the Southampton Cultural Center through Sunday, May 21, 2017. This exhibition is curated by Steven Schreiber. An Artists’ Reception will be held on Friday, March 3, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM where the public is invited to meet the artists and learn about their processes and inspirations. Refreshments will be served at this free event. The Southampton Cultural Center is located at 25 Pond Lane in Southampton.
Gallery visiting hours are Southampton Cultural Center hours: Monday through Saturday, 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM or by appointment: 631-287-4377. All exhibited work is for sale; to purchase, contact East End Arts at 631-727-0900.
Photographers featured in this exhibit and sale are:
- Marilyn DiCarlo Ames of Quogue – For Marilyn DiCarlo Ames, photography has personally evolved into a meditation, for it is when she is behind the lens that she feels most alive, present, and content. She most enjoys capturing and recording life’s magical moments with her camera.
- Jim Lennon of Flanders — In spite of loving the pursuit of landscapes, photographing people quickly became the signature specialty of Jim Lennon’s work. The show images are made up of friends and assignments taken from 1978 to 2014 using film and digital cameras. Jim has been creating assignment photography for regional and national companies for over 40 years.
In addition to KODAK, he has also been recognized with awards from The Association of the Graphic Arts, The Long Island Advertising Club, Graphic Design Magazine and has been featured in Studio Photography, Industrial Photography and The Photo District News.
- Steven Schreiber of Flanders – Steven Schreiber is an award-winning photographer who began capturing images with his digital camera in 2002. He soon found a personal approach to visual textures and colors that are the signature of his photographic creations. Through his experiences and extensive design skills, his goal is to create new visual perspectives to the things we see every day.
- Meryl Spiegel of East Quogue – Meryl Spiegel is a Long Island photographer who portrays the people, places and things around her whether she’s at home on the East End, roaming Manhattan or traveling elsewhere. While her subjects range from street life to seascapes to still life, her most recent work crosses into abstraction. Working with digital and medium-format cameras, Meryl’s imagery looks more like paintings than photographs.
- Joan Wozniak of Shoreham – Joan Wozniak has been communicating through images all her life. She first studied photography in grade school and since then has always had a camera with her. Joan enjoys exploring the space between the public faces we choose to show, and the vulnerable humans that we are.
Exhibition curator, Steven Schreiber comments: “The five photographers in this exhibit are some of the finest in the region. These works are diverse in subject and profoundly illustrate the vision, emotions and feelings of each artist.”
