New Design, and Inspiration at Gallery North

This past weekend we attended the

Opening Celebration of Gallery North’s new Arts Center

What a great space to expand on this vibrant arts community on the

North shore of Long Island

Many were getting their artistic groove on with the instructors who were doing demonstrations, and attendees enthusiastically partipating

If you are in the neighborhood, check out the exhibitions and great gift shop at Gallery North

and sign up for a class in printmaking, batik, textiles or clay

And yea, it was COLD! I got to wear my new shearling vest, one of our new designs we worked on over the summer.

The Weekend:Gallery North

We have the wonderful Gallery North here on the north shore, in Setauket, offering some very fine art and craft for fifty years.  I became a volunteer this year, and this weekend was assigned to the information desk, at the annual

“Joseph Reboli Wet Paint Festival”

where artists set up their easels on the gallery grounds or the Historical Society across the street, and interpret the view.

Their works will be on view at The Gallery July 15th-17th

A Silent Auction of the works will be held on Friday July 17th, followed by the Auction Reception from 6-8

Good Luck bidding!







Gallery North

Friday evening I volunteered at Gallery North in Setauket, to help their 50th Anniversary Gala be a smashing success.

The Gallery was started in 1965 by two women with a vision to bring contemporary art to an area of Long Island between the Hamptons and New York City, as it turned out, the area was not quite ready for the “shocking” work to be shown!

Read more history in NY Times in 1999

I have visited the gallery many times over the years, and their outdoor art show was one of the first shows we exhibited in when we started out.  I will never forget the year Hurricane Gloria hit our area of Long Island………..

The sun came out the next day, the Annual Gallery North Outdoor Art Show went on amid downed power lines (not live!) and we had a great show! The perseverance to “go on with the show” shows the strength of The Gallery Volunteers and why it has survived and grown into such a reputable gallery.

The Gala was held at The Simons Center for Geomety and Physics, on the campus of Stony Brook University

A good time was had by all, and $ was raised thru silent & live auctions, ticket sales and donations.
