Going Back in Time with Miriam Dougenis


Contemporary realist painter Miriam Dougenis will present a retrospective slide talk on Wednesday, July 18, at 6 p.m. at The Golden Eagle, located at 144 North Main Street in East Hampton.

Her paintings will include watercolors from the 1970s and 1980s, including “Poor Butterfly,” an intricate and colorful work using apples, mirror images and an intricately patterned fabric that won The Heckscher Museum Award in the 1986 Long Island Annual.

“Also included are the equally colorful and vibrant carousel horses from New York City’s Central Park Carousel, and the more placid nautical theme of boat decks and ships’ rigging indicating a more abstract side to the artist’s work,” according to a press release.

The retrospective will take the artist’s work through the 1990s and up to the present, “with the theme of buildings and farmlands of the East End, works that are a reminder that the area is fast losing many iconic local structures that once made up the stock of the imagery of what the East End was all about,” the release said.

Admission is free. For more information, call (631) 324-0603 or visit goldeneagleart.com.
