Saturday, August 12, 2017

This past weekend I had a chance to attend some pretty marvelous art shows in Southampton, New York. The first was at the Artist Study and the other was a unique art show at the Oreya Hampton in the Capri Hotel for an exhibit entitled Art of Desire.

The Artist Study was pleased to present Pitture della Vita ~ 'paintings of life'

by Megan Euell. Art collectors gathered for an Opening Reception from 6pm-8pm, Saturday August 12th.

The Artist Study is an Art Gallery & Studio. Their mission is to educate, inspire, and foster an art community through professional programs of study and art exhibitions that promote the creative process as an important role in growth and progress. The Artist Study holds to the preservation of the techniques and traditions of classical painting and drawing, connecting the impact that a creative life of study has on an individual and the well-being of future generations.

Art and the creative process is vital to one’s life force as well as an important tool for training specific, visual, and perceptual ways of thinking. The Artist Study believes that skills learned through the arts can be conveyed to academic subjects and problem solving, creating a unique study of life and it’s many forms. Their ethos holds to artists who exhibit a deep enduring respect for humanity.

The Artist Study serves the community, local and at large, by providing art education programs for all ages, open studio space to both emerging and professional artists; exhibiting the work of local, national, and international artists; and by providing paid teaching positions and ongoing professional development opportunities through events that engage the public. They create strategic alliances with organization leaders to effectively align with and support key business initiatives in the arts.

Megan is a classically trained painter from Southampton,, New York.

She Graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2010 from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Megan lived and studied in Florence, Italy from 2012-2015 and graduated from the Florence Academy of Art Advanced Painting Program in June 2015. Megan is a member of The Salmagundi Club and the Portrait Society of America.

Megan is proud to be represented by The Artist Study Gallery & Studio in Southampton, NY., where she exhibits her work, as well as teaches Drawing and Painting. for more information:




At the Art of Desire Show I enjoyed talking to both Artists Eddy Bogaert and Marcus Glitteris.

Having grown up around the world and been raised truely as a global citizen, Eddy Bogaert tends to embed within his artwork a variety of different influences and, oftentimes, contrasting aesthetics.

Described by some critics as a “Jackson Pollock on steroids” his art morphs into the one-medium methods of creation by encompassing alternative – and somewhat opposing – materials: acrylic, glue, pen, collage – and UV light. In a previous interview Eddy reveals, “While I was at Rikers Island hanging out with some hardcore criminals, I did three things: workout, play chess and draw. I had all this animosity and sadness inside so I decided to use it in a positive way by painting.”

Eddy has travelled the world showing his amazing art to enthusiastic art collectors.

For more information about Eddy take a look at his instagram page at

Born 1975 . Marcus Glitteris is a native New Yorker from the Lower East Side of ” Alphabet City “. He is a self taught Artist who started painting at the age of 28. Art class started for me on the floors of New York City Night Clubs. Creativity Started for me through my dancing and ” Club Kid ” outfits. I would see and experience the energy of The New York City ” Club Kids “, DragQueens, and Creatures of the Night. Every Character was a moving Painting. It inspired me to be a Moving Painting that danced and played in an Abstract Gallery. Fluorescent Painting was born in ” The Cosmic Cavern ” Kenny Scharf Installation @ The Tunnel N.Y.C.

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane poses for a photo-op with Artist Reisha Perlmutter at her Opening Reception at The Roman Fine Art Gallery

Roman Fine Art is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition from New York-based artist, Reisha Perlmutter. Titled Immerse , the show includes over 15 new paintings from her water series, exploring the body, its relationship to water and the science of color. The exhibit will be open Friday, August 28 through Sunday, August 27 , 2017 with the opening reception for the artist Saturday, July 29, 2-5pm that I attended.

For just over a year, Perlmutter has been working on a series of oil paintings depicting women in water, in many of these she is also the subject. She aims to place emphasis on the biological connection between body and water, while finding correlations between her painting philosophy and understanding of color. Color and light move across the skin through the water, in energetic brushwork, blurring the edges between the figure and it’s surrounding environment. Through this connection, we sense that the body and the water are one.

Perlmutter’s imagery allows the viewer to relive and experience this universal and very humanizing connection to water, where one becomes hyper-aware of the body, where it begins and ends, how it moves in nature. Her weightless figures seem to be at complete ease and calm, the dappled light melting into the larger image, inviting our senses to participate in the painting.

Perlmutter draws parallels between the physical relationship with nature and Albers color theory, where color exists purely in its relationship to its surroundings. She explains this relationship as almost linear, “the flesh ends and the water begins, the flesh feels and looks like flesh because of the water,” just as one color will project that which it is relative to. She also aims to depict bodies that are not overly posed or sexualized. Her work often evokes comparisons to Photo-realism, however the artist associates photography as data and documentation, which is not part of her objective in practice.

Emphasis is directed away from individualized anatomy, and onto the body as a whole. The artist finds poetry within the recurring shapes, naturally occurring throughout individual bodies. Capturing natural patterns, she considers DNA, physiology and biology; and particularly in relationship to women and their bodies. Her recent work aims to empower women to appreciate their differences, find a comfortability with their sizes, shapes, and colors.

Roman Fine Art is committed to bringing the most provocative, relevant and exciting artworks from the 20th and 21st century to their clientele.

Their mission is to create and foster new environments dedicated to recognizing and supporting Contemporary Art by showcasing the cutting edge talent increasingly pervading mainstream culture. Their goal is to further advance the dialogue of New Contemporary Art movements from around the world.

This past weekend I took a break from the charity galas in the Hamptons and enjoyed an art show at the White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton, New York.

OUT OF BOUNDS is an exhibition of 8 contemporary artists featuring photography, painting, mixed media and sculptures with each artist pushing the boundaries in their own unique way.

Tombstones are brought to life through archival inks and layers, metals twist and thrust into provocative images, marble and glass take on appealing shapes, images bleed together and the sky becomes a voyeur. Art is exhibited inside the gallery and outside in the garden.

Art lovers enjoyed Food and Wine while enjoying the paintings, photographs and sculptures.

"Awakenings" Featuring The Artwork Of Marjorie Van De Stouwe At The Hersh Fine Art Gallery

Hersh Fine Art is pleased to present "Awakenings," a solo exhibition of paintings by Long Island artist Marjorie van de Stouwe. "Awakenings" will be on view from May 13 until June 17, 2017. The artist presented an opening reception on Saturday, May 13, from 6 to 8pm.

Dr. Marjorie van de Stouwe is woman devoted to nurturing and preserving life. Both a successful physician and a highly skilled artist, her artistic work naturally comes from a deep love and respect of life in its depiction of living flower arrangements and their accoutrements. “I would like my work to soften the edges on our minds,” Dr. van de Stouwe explains, “to create a sense of peace, and at times, possibly humor.” Her subject matter is primarily still life with an emphasis on nature, frequently featuring flowers picked straight from her garden.

Each season offers a new opportunity to create a fresh body of work as the landscape changes with the weather. Awakenings celebrates transition, spring, and new birth. Tying together lyrical composition with an almost scientific investigation into the surface quality that communicates the difference between a dandelion and a daffodil, Dr. van de Stouwe’s work transcends mere academic pursuit. It celebrates the fleeting yet enduring qualities of beauty and impermanence. For a moment, the petals are intact and the leaves are suspended the in the air by their own strength, but the moment passes, and the flowers cannot endure long. Awakenings explores all stages of life and brings dignity to each one.

Antique Spray Roses subtlely pinpoints the moment of transition from the peak of life to its end. No petals have fallen, yet in an otherwise spry bouquet, several of the roses have begun to soften and sink, signaling the inevitable decline. Dandelions in a Crystal Vase pushes even further, immortalizing a common weed in all of its life cycles and giving it a place of honor in elegant crystal. It is a reminder that the apparent end of life is another beginning; the seeds will be taken up by the wind, dispersed, and new flowers will bloom.

Dr. van de Stouwe began formal classical training in earnest in 2002, studying at the Stevenson Academy and then the Long Island Academy of Fine Art in Glen Cove, but her journey began when she purchased her first oil painting set in the 8th grade. Her strengths in science and math took her on a different career path, however, and she graduated medical school with a specialty in Rheumatology. Dr. van de Stouwe has continued a serious pursuit of painting while maintaining a thriving rheumatology practice and raising three daughters, taking workshops and classes on a regular basis in addition to private lessons with Michael Klein and others. In 2014 she brought her years of private training to the public eye and began exhibiting and winning awards in numerous juried shows across the United States, including exhibitions for Oil Painters of America and American Women Artists. "Awakenings" is her first solo exhibition. Dr. Van de Stouwe currently lives and paints in her home studio in Upper Brookville, Long Island.

"Awakenings" will run from May 13-June 17, 2017, with a gallery reception on May 13 from 6-8pm. For details please refer to or contact Rebecca Forster at 516-590-4324 or [email protected]
