I’ll be returning to Ashawagh Hall on March 8th and 9th for the third in a trilogy of shows. For this event, I’ll be showing with Marcie Honerkamp a sculptor and multi-media artist from Springs, and Annie Sessler, a fish print artist from Montauk. Annie, you might recall, collaborated with me on the previous pair of shows and this is my first with Marcie. The event is entitled “Three.”
Marcie has been displaying on the East End for over 30 years. Originally she worked as a painter, having studied at Parson’s School of Design, but in 1999 she discovered mosaics, and that became her creative outlet. She creates sculptures, 2 dimensional work, furniture, architectural enhancements and is especially known for her mosaic surfboards. Her work has been shown at The Elaine Benson Gallery, Soho 20, and Gallery Mertz in Sag Harbor and featured in the East Hampton Star, East Hampton Patch and The Delphi Stained Glass Catalogue. Her mosaic tables can be seen at Cyril’s Fish House on the Napeague stretch. Here’s an announcement featuring Marcie’s work:
Annie, who has just returned from Costa Rica, creates works in the Japanese craft tradition of Gyotaku. Along with her husband she founded East End Fish Prints in 2006. Her art involves direct nature printing with ink using freshly caught fish, octopi, squid and other natural objects. The work is printed on a variety of surfaces including on vintage, recycled and synthetic fabric. Annie’s work has been featured in the NY Times, Edible East End, The East Hampton Star and on One King’s Lane. There is a continuous display at Noah’s in Greenport. Here’s an announcement featuring Annie’s work:
For my third of the show, I’ll be bringing twenty five large pieces including some of the black and whites I posted in February such as Nursery and Aperture. As some of you know, I’ve been absorbed with tiny images lately. I’ll have a group of these miniatures at the show: 2″ photographs in 10″ x 10″ frames including one of my favorites… Little Death.
The three of us are busy with preparations, and the long-range forecast is good (fingers crossed). Our reception will be held on Saturday March 8th from 4pm until 8pm. Last January’s show had several hundred guests so we’re hoping for a repeat performance.
Ashawagh Hall is situated in Springs on eastern Long Island, about 3 miles north of East Hampton. The hall is walking distance from the Springs General Store, Accabonac Harbor and the Pollock-Krasner House. Please email me if you have any questions.
