Photo Essay: East End artists

There are certain places in the world that beckon artists, and the East End is one of them. Years after Abstract Expressionists Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning found inspiration in the area, artists April Gornik, Lucy Winton, Frank Wimberley, Fulvio Massi and others -- many of whom paint in more contemporary, landscape-inspired styles -- have found an outpost for their artistic expressions in Bridgehampton, Sagaponack, Wainscott and other communities on the East End.

Frank Wimberley sits in his house in Sag Harbor surrounded by his lush paintings. He paints in the style of the Abstract Expressionists, full of large swaths of color in deep tones. While he does not paint there — he paints in Queens — he does have much of his work there. (Aug. 12, 2011)
