The show opens on Friday, July 31 and will be up for viewing until October 28, 2015. An Artists’ Reception will be held on Sunday, August 23, from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery, where the public will have the opportunity to meet the artists. Local wines and artisanal cheeses will be served. The public is invited to this free event. The exhibition is open for viewing during the Jamesport Manor Inn’s open hours: Wednesdays through Sundays, 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM during lunch and dinner service.
Jerry Schwabe's award-winning art has appeared in many group and solo shows on Long Island and in New York City and can be found in many private collections. Mr. Schwabe comments: “The work presented here shows how deeply I am affected by the light and color of our surroundings: the water, the woods and the open fields and all that nature's beauty has to offer those of us lucky enough to live on Long Island’s East End. My technique spans from a classical approach to the more dramatic, with variations in mood, formed in abstractions of color and shape. Painting, sculpture and photography have now each become an independent form of expression, but my work remains grounded in fundamentals, and my vision will always be drawn to all that is possible.”
Steven Schreiber is an award-winning photographer who began photographing nature with his digital camera in 2002 when he moved to the East End after leaving a busy life in congested western Nassau County. He soon found a personal approach to visual textures and colors that are the signature of his photographic creations. Using a unique processing technique he developed himself he is able to bring an unusual and spectacular perspective to the flowers he focuses on for the images presented in this stunning series. The warm and mystical veneer that washes over his photos imbue them with the subtle colors and textures his photography is known for. Mr. Schreiber has exhibited his works at East End Arts, Alex Ferrone Gallery, Ashawagh Hall, Guild Hall, Remsenburg Academy, The Southampton Cultural Center, Karen Mannix Contemporary Gallery, South Street Gallery, and The Lyceum Gallery. He has won many awards including those from Guild Hall and Remsenburg Academy. His image will be featured in the upcoming 4th Annual National East End Arts show The Figure, where his work was chosen out of 730 entries. He is a member of East End Arts, East End Photographers Group, The American Society of Media Photographers, Southampton Artists Association, Good Ground Artists, and Guild Hall. He is also a supporter of East End Arts and Guild Hall. Steven has an extensive background in design and is an honors graduate of Photographic Imaging at Suffolk County Community College.
