My Studio, located in the Historic Harbor District of Port Washington
My Studio is located on Main St, in the Historic Harbor District of affluent Port Washington, NY. The Gallery has Location, Location, Location… it is surrounded by Art & Antique shops, Restaurants, Custom Jewelry and Clothing Designers… to name a few. We are a sales focused Gallery, always looking for new Artists to promote. The three top winners of this competition will have their work in our display windows on a rotating basis.
Port Washington sculpture relief 60″ x 40″ x 3″ on exhibit.
This sculpture relief was actually inspired by the streets of Port Washington NY. It simulates a sewer cover in a piece of the road. The parallel white road stripes (with glass reflector beads) are for a two lane road. The little blue reflector is a marker for the firemen indicating that a fire hydrant is at the side of the road. I actually embedded some saw dust in a cement wash for texture.
The Art Advisory Council scheduled my one-woman exhibition for February 1-27 1987. I had many finished pieces to include and I was hoping to finish the Port Washington Scene to be the highlight of the presentation. Now that was an ambitious undertaking with time marching on. It was not complete on time, that is why I am delighted that it is in the current exhibition: Pride in Port. But it was a marvelous opportunity to exhibit at the prestigious Port Washington Library Gallery and meet the supportive members of the Art Advisory Council. During the process, I also met the Superintendent and employees of The Port Washington Water District which later acquired some of my “Water Works!”
Now that I live in the tropics, I won’t get to see this exhibit, but I would appreciate comments from anyone who is able to view this exhibit.
