Fifteen Women Artists of the East End have joined together for the eclectic art show "Our Art, Our Vision." The exhibition will present paintings, sculpture, photography and glassworks. Landscapes, figuration and abstracts in oil, acrylic and pastel will be included in the show.

We are pleased to include internationally known sculptor Phyllis Hammond, who presently has a display of her work at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. Phyllis’ sculptures start out as free doodles and after much cutting, folding, twisting and turning, they become dramatic, playful three-dimensional works.

Katherine Hammond's whimsical abstracts entertain and asks us:  “What can we discover about ourselves if we approach the canvas without any preconceived ideas?” Her paintings are a journey for the artist and the viewer.

Anahi De Canio’s paintings are characterized by a myriad of layers that reveal themselves in either a bold voice or subtle whispers, creating striking abstracts that are rich in texture and meaning. Christine Newman, a professional photographer in the fields of portraiture, product, interior and performance, has a fascination with mythical creatures which will be on display. Pamela Vossen is a pastel and oil artist inspired by the natural beauty which surrounds us on the East End.

Alyce Peifer’s subtle color palette, glazing and attention to composition are the hallmark of her paintings. The light reflected on the bays, ocean, and farm vistas is evident in Alyce’s landscapes and seascapes. Lieve Thiers, an abstract artist, liberates her emotions by transforming nature into a new outlook that is not a representation of an object.

Lynn Martell is a fine artist who works in oil and watercolor. Contrasting shadow and light, the East End landscape dominates her work. Tracy Harris, an abstract artist working in encaustics, sees her works as stories, the way they process information to her. Her images are expressed in swirling lines and dynamic forms. Phyllis Chillingworth is propelled to paint by an energy when she is moved by profound moments in nature.
