Carolyn Conrad

Step Forward by Carolyn Conrad

Carolyn Conrad’s continuation on minimalist handmade constructions portrays more intimate and less temporal domestic spaces than her previously exhibited expansive rural scenes.  Using the disciplines of painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography, she has taken a new direction with color, tone, space, light source, and perspective to create an exterior landscape that offers balance, harmony, and a respite from an internal world.

Carolyn Conrad grew up in Acton, Massachusetts, a rural town steeped in New England history, and a large source of her inspiration.  Her early art training at Boston Museum of Fine Arts and undergraduate work at Massachusetts College, helped form her minimalist and conceptual aesthetic.  First exhibiting throughout the Boston area, she then moved to New York City and received her MA from New York University.  Carolyn currently maintains her studio in Sag Harbor.

Conrad’s work has been widely exhibited in galleries, institutions and museums.  Solo, group exhibitions and installations include Parrish Art Museum, Southampton; Guild Hall Museum, East Hampton; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; De Cordova Museum, Lincoln, MA; and Cloitre des Billettes, Paris, France, among others.


Scott Farrell

New Snow Under Full Moon by Scott Farrell

Scott Farrell has abstracted sizeable vivid and textural landscapes from weathered surfaces that, in reality, are temporary and may have measured only one or two feet wide.  His new series of images include visions of multi-dimensional mountain ranges, deserts, coastlines and beaches that have deceptively appeared on surfaces of boats in dry dock throughout the Northeast.

Long Island based photographer Scott Farrell has an eclectic vision and considers an array of subjects for his images that spans rural and urban scenes, landscapes, and abstract compositions of architecture.  Farrell’s influences and development as a photographer began earlier in school when he learned about photographers of the Depression era such as Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans.  Additional photographers and artists including Ansel Adams and Andrew Wyeth also influence Scott as he interprets particular scenes with regard to texture, tone, composition, and dramatic lighting to produce his works.

A full time fine art photographer, Scott’s accolades include having one of his images chosen as a finalist in National Geographic’s Landmark Moments 2016 competition.  Scott has been actively exhibiting throughout Long Island and in New Jersey, and is a member of many arts organizations here as well.
