John Stango Brings Americana Pop Art to Bridgehampton

Art is in John Stango’s blood. The Philadelphia-based pop-art painter is the son of a talented artist, and the cousin of an American illustrating icon. Mr. Stango’s artistic talents were cultivated and encouraged early on by his mother, Frances Elaine Rockwell, who was also a painter and lover of the arts. Mr. Stango didn’t discover until later on that that there was to be another major artistic influence in his life, his mother’s relative, Norman Rockwell.

A Whale of a Show Brings Salt Air to the Sag Harbor Whaling &...

Dan Rizzie, an artist for more than 40 years, is best known for his colorful bird imagery. But whales have actually been on his mind for years. He was certainly thinking about them when he and gallery owner Peter Marcelle hatched up an idea to raise money for the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum approximately four years ago. That’s when they conceptualized the idea, and the name, of the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum’s first “Whale of a Show” art benefit exhibit and sale, which debuted in 2013.

Small Scale in a Big Show at Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton

With more than 50 artists and 150 pieces represented, the annual “Big Show” at Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton is a monumental undertaking. Having that many items to hang can be overwhelming, though fortunately the art is relatively easy to handle since it’s all created in an 8-inch-by-11-inch format, says exhibition organizer Jess Frost. But just because the canvases and panels are small, doesn’t mean that the statements made on them aren’t big, she adds.

Maybe it’s an inherent part of our human nature, but it seems very few people can resist images of very cute animals — or any animal for that reason. And this Saturday, art goers and animal lovers alike will have the opportunity to get an eyeful when the Richard J. Demato Art Gallery in Sag Harbor opens “A Magical Menagerie,” an exhibit of 30-plus paintings and mixed media works all depicting animals.

Members Exhibition Brings Art & Community Together at Guild Hall

Even for professional artists, the dream of showing in a museum is rarely realized. But for East End locals, the opportunity is within reach. All it takes is a piece of artwork, residency and a membership to Guild Hall in East Hampton. That’s because the annual “Artists Members Exhibition,” the oldest non-juried museum exhibition on Long Island, is also one of the few non-juried museum shows that is still offered. Better yet, the giant group exhibition at Guild Hall, which features the work of hundreds of East Enders every year, offers a grand prize of a solo show at the museum to the winner. This one-man or one-woman exhibition is offered regardless of whether the Top Honor recipient is a pro or amateur.
