Romany Kramoris Gallery Shines Spotlight on Local Artists

“Yearning” by Lianne Alcon.

Local artists Lianne Alcon, Suzzanne Fokine, Ghilia Lipman-Wulf and Muriel Hanson Falborn are now on view in Romany Kramoris Gallery’s newest group show, though it technically opens with a reception on Sunday, July 8, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Sag Harbor gallery, located at 41 Main Street.

Lianne Alcon is an expressionistic painter whose canvases reflect images viewed by an experienced, discerning eye for the essential.

“Yet her painting style is loose — in contrast to her disciplined approach — and it frequently incorporates swirling strokes and liberal use of her brushes,” according to a press release. “Alcon uses that contrasting perception and expression — whether painting flamenco dancers nudes, or sceneries from Spain, all favorite subjects — to uniquely capture their spirit.”

Suzzanne Fokine’s paintings “are an outward manifestation of life longing for itself,” she said in an artist’s statement. “They are poems, songs, dreams, and imaginings, made from the invisible ethereal fabric of a moment. I think of my paintings as a form of music, attempting to reveal its mysteries through the process of ‘visual sensing.’”

Sag Harbor-based Ghilia Lipman-Wulf is considered a neo-Expressionist, with work that is mostly semi-abstract, though she is widely known for her botanicals, as well.

“From the canvas to furniture, ceramics, clothing and murals, Ghilia’s work has been widely commissioned and exhibited since the early 1980s,” the press release said. “Recurrent themes in Ghilia’s work stem from a love of nature and the human form.

In Muriel Hanson Falborn’s work, “the natural world meets architecture and design, counteracting each other, taming the wildness, providing structure and organization, providing rest and joy,” she said in an artist’s statement. “Water, whether as a salty background for a garden or in a vase, offers reflection, renewal and refreshment, for my passion for a tropical palette. Attention to the design of flowers continues to amaze and enliven me and always welcomes me home.”

The show will remain on view through July 26. For more information, call (631) 725-2499 or visit
