ELEVEN LEADING LONG ISLAND ARTISTS TO EXHIBIT ART INTERPRETING NATURE AT ASHAWAGH HALL

Drawing inspiration from earth, water and sky, these divergent artists have produced unique pieces that reflect their individual interpretations of the essence of nature, resulting in an extraordinary collection of work expressed through paint, pastel, ink, fiber art and clay.

"NATURAL ELEMENTS" opens on Friday, July 25, and continues through Sunday, July 27, 2014. An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 5 to 8 p.m.
