Opening for “Amusements in Nature” at SCCC Lyceum Gallery

January 28, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

“AMUSEMENTS IN NATURE” SCULPTURE BY JONATHAN PEARLMAN AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY STEVEN SCHREIBER
JANUARY 19 – FEBRUARY 20, 2016

Reception on Thursday, January 28
from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with refreshments

Jonathan Pearlman (of East Quogue, NY) constructs sculptures from found objects – lost and collected. Old shoes and wooden wheels, wire and glue are some of the materials Jonathan Pearlman works with. He says, “I could just as easily be a chef working with leftovers.” Pearlman makes what he calls “Amusements” and thinks of himself as much a humorist as a sculptor. Yet, his work is very sculptural in many ways following the classic forms of shape and balance and proportion. He’s making things he “sees” rather than knows.

Since first showing his work at the AES Gallery on Long Island City in 2011, Pearlman has shown extensively throughout the East End. He has had four solo exhibitions and has been part of many group shows. He has won several awards in juried and invitational exhibits, including Best in Show at The East End Arts Gallery in Riverhead three times since 2011. His work is represented in many private collections.

Steven Schreiber (of Flanders, NY) began photographing nature in 2002. His personal approach to visual textures and colors are the signature of his photographic creations. Using a unique processing technique he developed, he is able to bring an unusual and spectacular perspective to the trees and landscape he focuses on in this stunning series. Shrouded in a vail of mystery Steven has captured a sense of awe for the ancient Cypress and Tupalow trees from deep in the Dead Lakes Recreation Area in Florida as well as other area in the USA including: Alaska, New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Mr. Schreiber has exhibited his work at The East End Arts Council, The Alex Ferrone Gallery, Ashawagh Hall, Guild Hall (Honorable Mention, 2014 Members Exhibit, Juror: Robert Storr), The Remsenburg Academy (2015 Award Winners Invitational Exhibit), The Southampton Cultural Center, The Karen Mannix Contemporary Gallery, The South Street Gallery, and The Lyceum Gallery. Chosen out of 730 entrees Mr. Schreiber’s work was featured in The 4th Annual National East End Arts Exhibition, The Figure. Mr. Schreiber is a member of The East End Arts Council, The East End Photographers Group, The American Society of Media Photographers, The Southampton Artists Association, Good Ground Artists, and Guild Hall. Mr. Schreiber is an honors graduate in Photographic Imaging from Suffolk County Community College (2014).

Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The Gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays (Exceptions: closed evenings after 4 p.m. on 8/27, 8/28, 9/22. Closed on 8/ 29, 9/5, 9/7, 9/14, 9/23)
