The Huntington Arts Council is proud to announce the third of our Invitational Gallery Shows. This show, featuring Shain Bard, Puneeta Mittal, Pamela Waldroup and Constance Sloggatt Wolf, will begin with the Opening Reception on Friday, September 4, from 6-8pm at the Main Street Gallery, 213 Main Street, Huntington. The show runs through September 19th. All are welcome to attend.
Shain Bard – Shain is an oil painter who received her BA and MFA from Lehman College. Her work has been exhibited across Long Island including in the Art League of LI, The Heckscher Museum of Art and Elaine Benson Gallery in Bridgehampton. “People often say to me that they know that place [in a painting] that it has struck a chord in them and yet, while they are somehow familiar with the territory, they are also really ‘seeing’ it for the first time, too, in ways they had not seen before. It is of course, really as much of an internal place they are speaking about, as well as external. It is those moments when we most fully connect to our wondrous surroundings, those held-breath moments, that interaction with nature’s truths, where art is created.” Shain Bard
Puneeta Mittal – Puneeta graduated with an MA in studio art from Adelphi University and MFA from Long Island University. She is an adjunct professor at Adelphi University and exhibits her work in galleries across the US and abroad. Oil paintings and ceramic works are her media of expression. “With a strong belief that everything that is born, grows and withers away to be yet born again – incessant change from one to another proceeds in an evolutionary cycle – clay has proved to be an ideal medium for her expressions. Her love for color and textures in nature – internal and external, has proved to be an unlimited resource for the blank canvas”
Pamela Waldroup – “A digital photographer/printmaker on a life-long search to find order in chaos through observation of the accidental series of commonalities that occur around us everyday, in every moment. Her Interactions series of photographs engages the viewer, the subject, and the surroundings caught in those moments.” Pamela received her BFA from Ohio University and her MA in drawing and printmaking from LIU, CW Post Center. Her work has been exhibited in national and local galleries and museums on Long Island.
Constance Sloggatt Wolf – Constance is both an artist and educator. She trained in the Fine Arts at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn (BFA) and Long Island University (MFA).”I study Nature first, searching for primary, universal forms and ideas, symbols that all human beings may relate to. Inspired by the visceral beauty of my materials, I approach the work openly tapping into this understanding of the natural world and allowing the act of painting to transform knowledge into a visual dialogue.” Constance work has been exhibited publicly, privately and in corporate collections in the North East, California and Europe. “The opportunity to share my work with the community I love through the Huntington Arts Council Invitational Exhibit is exciting and gratifying to me.” Constance Sloggatt Wolf.
The Invitational Gallery Shows are a Huntington Arts Council opportunity for small groups of artists to participate in a shared exhibit in our Main Street Gallery.
