Jamesport Meeting House: Cyanotype Workshop + Maker Fair / Nov 3

Cyanotype Workshop and Maker Fair / November 3


The third event in the Jamesport Meeting House’s 2018 Harvest Arts Festival will be a Cyanotype Workshop with Alyssa Solomon on November 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.   The class is $35. For info and registration, see jamesportmeetinghouse.org or call 631-722-4880. Space is very limited and advance registration is required. The Harvest Arts Festival is made possible by a generous grant from the David Robert Lion Gardiner Foundation.

Ms. Solomon, a daguerreotype maker as well as silkscreen maven, will explain 19th century photography techniques and history. Participants will print images using the natural sunlight coming through the Meeting House’s beautiful old windows. Everyone will make at least one gorgeous sunprint on paper or fabric to take home.

Solomon teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and is currently the artist in residence at VCU’s School of Business. Her company Blue Skies Workroom produces beautiful handmade silkscreen fabrics and bags which will be one of the things featured at the Makers Fair afterwards. Blue Skies Workroom is on Instagram @blue_skies_workroom and alyssasalomon.com

A Maker Fair open to the public will follow from 1-3 p.m. and will include small works from all the artists presenting in our Harvest Arts Festival: Rob Shepperson, Alyssa Salomon, Marta Baumiller, Ella Baldwin, Cliff Baldwin and some surprise artists as well. You’ll find paintings, sculpture, prints, books, tableware, accessories, lighting and furniture. Think of it as an Affordable Art Fair for the North Fork.


Jamesport Meeting House, 1731

The Jamesport Meeting House, built in 1731, is the most significant historic structure in the town of Riverhead. It is not only the oldest building in Riverhead, but is also the oldest public building on the East End of Long Island. The Meeting House is a Riverhead Town landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since 2008 when a group of local residents came together and arranged financing to buy the building, it has become a vital not-for-profit venue for a broad range of events: classical concerts, Broadway performances, bluegrass, folk music, Shakespeare, civic association meetings, lectures, community spelling bees and weddings.    



Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation

Established in 1987, the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation primarily supports the study of New York State history, with an emphasis on Suffolk County. Its mission is inspired by Gardiner’s lifelong passion for New York history. Until his death in 2004, he was the 16th Lord of the Manor of Gardiner’s Island. Since 1639, the Gardiner family and their descendants have owned Gardiner’s Island by way of a royal grant from King Charles I of England.
