Exhibition hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday; and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday. A Reception will take place on Saturday evening (Feb. 15) from 4 to 8 p.m. with the artists in attendance.
Kirsten Benfield is originally from New Zealand and now lives and works in East Hampton. As a traveler, observation of her journeys have been captured in watercolor. This Ashawagh Hall exhibition will showcase her version of local landscapes and seasonal still life’s.
"In exploring my sense of place on the East End, I bring the two places together in landscapes, and mind-scapes," says Benfield.
Rich Mothes has recently made a move to pursue his art full time. Originally from East Hampton, N.Y., Mothes attended Clarkson University majoring in Mechanical Engineering. It was then onto Southampton College and, after its closing, to StonyBrook University. Rich explored various majors until deciding to further his artistic studies.
After 22 years in the tennis business, Mothes is now concentrating fully on his artwork. Mothes is currently experimenting with various styles and materials. Realism suits his natural style, but he also enjoys the release that abstraction gives the mind from the confines of the realistic approach. His choice of style and subject matter compliment whatever he is feeling at the time.
Jerry Schwabe is a painter, photographer and sculptor. He has studied at various schools, including the National Academy of Fine Arts, New School University, School of Visual Arts, the Art Students League, and the Golden Eagle. His award-winning work has been displayed at many solo and group shows.
This show will feature Jerry's photography as well as paintings: watercolors, oils and acrylics. Jerry paints for “the eyes and the soul” and his soft muted colors in many of his beach scenes reflect a sense of calmness and serenity. Contrastively, many of his new paintings are full of vibrant bursts of unexpected color pairings.
