Walls at The Galley Ho in New Suffolk are filled with beautiful landscapes and waterfronts, part of the second annual North Fork by North Fork Art Show. Fourteen North Fork artists are displaying work inspired by living and working in the area.
New Suffolk Waterfront curator Kate Altman couldn’t be more thrilled about the exhibit.
“It’s a good cause and this show is a nice mix of art,” said Altman of the works, which can be purchased, with a portion of the proceeds going to the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund. “The North Fork is a unique place. It’s casual and down home – very unpretentious. The works of art reflect being here, from the boats to the sand to the sky.”
The art show, which began on Aug. 5, features 48 pieces. New Suffolk’s Celia Withers is delighted about having her paintings included.
“I work with acrylics, and my husband Mike works with color reductions,” Withers said. “It takes me about two to three hours to do one piece, and then I will go back to it in a week and see if I want to make changes. Being creative is a process that I love.”
The art show will run from noon to 9 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19-21, and Aug. 26-28. For more information, visit www.newsuffolkwaterfront.org or call 631-566-0806.
