A Juried East End Arts Gallery Show

Opening Reception: Friday, April 28, 5 – 7 PM

Show Dates: April 28 – June 9, 2017

The East End Arts Gallery is pleased to announce the new juried, all media art show, Illustration & Fashion, at the East End Arts Gallery which will open with a reception on Friday, April 28, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The guest juror for this show is Bil Donovan, fashion illustrator and educator.

East End Arts Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood encourages artists and comments on the theme: “Whether the subject is a toaster, a teapot, a tuxedo, or a trench coat, for this show, line and flair are the most valued skills. (Lighting too if the entry is a photograph.) Admittedly a little commercial – remember, it’s how Andy got his start. The subject needn’t be your creation, but the execution needs to be solidly your style. Adding words to complement your image and design is fine too.”

At the reception, models from shops of Tanger Outlets in Riverhead including Chico’s, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH and NYDJ, among others, will be showcasing wears from their new spring collections. In addition, student model Emily Blumenthal will be modeling unique Salvation Army fashions – complete outfit for under $12! – and student model Maddy Seitles will be modeling a recycled fashion dress designed and created by East End Arts Education Director Diane Giardi. The public is invited to the reception to enjoy refreshments and meet the artists. With the theme of Illustration & Fashion, all attendees are invited to dress as outrageously as they dare! The reception is a free event, open to the public. Artwork on exhibit is for sale. The show will run from the opening reception through June 9, 2017. The Illustration & Fashion art show is sponsored by Hamptons Art Hub. The East End Arts Gallery is located at 133 E. Main Street in Riverhead and open hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
