Exhibit: Beauty and the Beast – Works by Cindy Pease Roe
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – Oct 31 @ 5:00 pm
Exhibit: Beauty and the Beast – Works by Cindy Pease Roe @  Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum |  |  |

Beauty = the whales. Beast = plastic marine litter.
This installation is about whales, the oceans and coastlines, and the threat of this beauty from marine plastic litter. It will include paintings as well as Cindy’s UpSculpt whales and other creations, sculpted from marine litter.
Cindy’s emphasis is on the beauty of the largest mammals in the world, whales, and will be contrasted with the marine litter: plastics, and the smallest of beasts: micro-plastics.
This show is designed to enlighten, delight and engage people through Cindy’s folk-arty, playful style of sculpted whales made from this new art medium.
Education through art is a passion of Cindy’s. Therefore, this show will also celebrate the future of this fragile, precious environment by informing, engaging and educating the public to become more aware of the use and disposal of plastics.
Cindy Pease Roe is an environment artist currently working in marine litter/plastics.

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 23 | 5-7 PM
Curator’s Talk & Gallery Tour: Sunday, October 8 | 1 PM | FREE
Steampunk Outdoor Fashion Show: Saturday, October 14 | 3 PM | FREE

Starting from the re-imagined, visual language of the 19th Century Victorian Era, Steampunk now counts its inspirations as far back as the mechanical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci to the bold, streamlined locomotives of Raymond Lowey. But what gives this art form its singular identity is the artists’ visual and cultural fascination with mechanical, gear-driven technologies of the past. This exhibition will present works from the most notable Steampunk artists and designers in the field. Featuring Painting, Fashion, Sculpture, Devices, and Contraptions Extraordinaire, all of the works richly illustrate the artistic need for a messy vitality to allow the imagination to soar.

The Five Wives of Captain Hand: A Maritime Melodrama
Oct 7 @ 10:00 am – Oct 31 @ 5:00 pm
The Five Wives of Captain Hand: A Maritime Melodrama @ Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum |  |  |

The Five Wives of Captain Hand: A Maritime Melodrama – Works by Sabina Streeter
Exhibit runs until Oct 31st, 10am to 5pm.
Opening reception: Saturday, October 7th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

Captain David Hand VI; celebrated Revolutionary war hero, shore whaling captain, and real-life inspiration for James Fenimore Cooper’s great American saga, the Leather Stocking Tales, had a colorful and mysterious life.

A prisoner of war five times before the age of twenty, Captain Hand was nicknamed “Slippery Dave” for his numerous escapes from British prison-ships. After the war, Hand returned to his beloved cottage on Church Street in Sag Harbor and began a career as a shore whaler – but the controversy continued.

Captain David Hand was married five times – four of his young wives died mysteriously one after the other, only one wife outlived him.

Today, Captain Hand and his five wives remain buried in the Oakland cemetery, with epitaphs that haunt and stir the imagination.

The Five Wives of Captain Hand: A Maritime Mystery presents artist Sabina Streeter’s historical reinterpretation of the infamous Captain David Hand and his five unfortunate wives.

Saddle Up

Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys – you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nation’s history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West.

Schenck’s work is not only cinematic in scope; it is also grounded in technique and style. His iconic, reductive approach is reminiscent of the color planes used in early computer graphics, establishing a visual dialogue between the straightforward subject matter and the more nuanced space of the rendering. The textual element of the comic book-inspired word bubbles is of equal importance to the meaning of each piece, often serving to either undermine or establish the guiding ambitions of the characters’ psyche.

In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West – cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work.

BILLY SCHENCK (b. 1947, Rural America) works and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Schenck’s artwork is in over 48 museum collections, including Smithsonian Institution, Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Albuquerque Fine Arts Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Art.

Billy Schenck’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you’re sure to find the right artistic expression!
