Flowers will always make a fabulous, romantic Valentine’s Day gift. Especially the kind that last forever, like the ones in this outstanding, gigantic book of gorgeous botanical photography by award winning photographer Jonathan M. Singer.
The Mamaroneck Artist’s Guild, known as MAG does a great job representing artist’s from the Lower Westchester area. Everything they show is of the highest quality. Here are some pieces from their collection I put together to “art up” a prospective sophisticated living room in a cool modern palette with splashes of hot color. I dipped into photography, painting, sculpture and woodcuts. What Fun!!
This just a tiny smattering of the gorgeous art represented by MAG. I’m so proud to have an art gallery with such a broad and eclectic collection, right here in my little town of Larchmont New York! Click here to get a peek at what they’re showing right now. If you’re thinking of coming from Manhattan, it’s just a ten minute walk from Larchmont Train Station.
Which comes first, the art or the fabrics? In this case the art came first, and I was inspired by it to create a collection of coordinating fabrics. Here’s what I came up with for our proposed living room: lsdkjfowiejflskdfloiesldnlsjf;ldflsihslnlskjdfswejfskdnflsflsdnflskdflsif;slf;sdlj;sishdlskd.x,cnvxkhdflsnc.x,vlskdhlskvl
The Mamaroneck Artists Guild, at 126 Larchmont Ave, Larchmont, NY are showing (through July 25th) a remarkable, graphic and moving display of full life size, high resolution portraits of Mamaroneck and Larchmont’s indispensable first responders: police, firefighters and EMTs. The artist photographer of this striking collection of portraits is Robert P. Fine.
Mr. Fine, shown here with his work, gives you an idea of the scale of the pieces. The effect is very dramatic.
Each of the First Responders is identified by name, retaining the importance of the individual, as well as the necessity of team work depicted by the collection as a whole.
On viewing the diverse group of men and women represented here, I’m struck by their cheer and openness, as well as the obvious pride these individuals take in their chosen professions.
The gallery is an open, airy light filled space, painted pure white, creating an excellent stark backdrop for the dark uniforms worn by the subjects.
In addition to Mr. Fine’s compelling approach to photographic portraiture, he is also an accomplished landscape photographer. On his two web sites you can see ample examples of his impressive work in both areas. www.extremeres.com and www.rfinephotography.com
