‘Pandemonium — Nature and Time’ Features Noyac Artists

Kevin Teare “Clyfford Still As Gerrymandered Republican Congressional Districts,” 2020. Oil on canvas, 25” x 25”.

Noyac-based artists Mary Boochever and Keven Teare will be participating in “Pandemonium — Nature and Time,” a group exhibition opening this Friday, September 17, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Gallery at the Bellport Brookhaven Historical Society, 12 Bell Street, Bellport. The show also features work by peter campus, Jamie Dearing, Kathleen J. Graves Elyzabeth Meade, Andreas Rentsch, Helen Rousakis and Antonio Trimani. It is curated by Graves, a resident of East Patchogue, and remains on view through October 31.

The artists have chosen multiple formats for presenting their ideas — painting, performance, photography, video, sculpture, ink on washi and digital drawing. Their work encompasses their experience in nature and their concern for the human influence over it. Each artist has a different emphasis in method, thought and materials so that the variations between the works create a dynamic interpretation of the outdoors.

An artist’s talk will be held on Saturday, September 18, from 2 to 4 p.m. with each artist speaking about their work.
