“Quintessence of Long Island” Exhibit at Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center
June 22, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
FLPG Sunday Series: “Quintessence of Long Island” exhibit with Deneen Tromba-Rich and Jan C. Porinchak.
Long Island artists and art teachers, Deneen Tromba-Rich and Jan C. Porinchak have teamed up to create a unique perspective of the natural beauty that lies within the jewel of the East End of Long Island, the Long Pond Greenbelt.
They invite you to join them during the weekend of the summer solstice, June 22, 2014, at the site of the charming Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center (1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike) for their art exhibit, Quintessence of Long Island.
Inspired by nature each of these professional artists has a passion for using a variety of art media to share in their enthusiasm and love of nature. Deneen uses a unique combination of technology, photography, and solar plate printmaking techniques to craft her art.
The print images she has created, some ranging in style from impressionistic to simply down-to-earth, are symbolic of her time spent on the trail with Jan observing and photographing the changing seasons, terrain, and natural habitat of the Long Pond Greenbelt’s natural environment.
Jan’s work is highly detailed and represents his desire to call attention to the often-overlooked scenes and drama that play out in the beautiful natural world of Long Island. He is entranced by the close up view, and particularly enjoys portraying the interactions of the many plants and animals in nature.
As a professional illustrator, Jan strives to use his painting skills to bring to life narratives that he has observed himself while enjoying the trails of the Long Pond Greenbelt and other trails of Long Island’s parks.
