East End Arts Celebrating Artists Steve Alpert And James Slezak

Beach Drama by James Slezak.

On Sunday, February 26th, from 3 to 5 p.m., East End Arts will fête landscape painter Steve Alpert and photographer James Slezak during an Artists Reception that toasts to the duo's new art show at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery at the Jamesport Manor Inn. A meet-and-greet with the artists will take place throughout the evening.

"The dazzling two-man exhibit features huge East End (and extra planetary) landscape paintings by award winning artist Steve Alpert and unique, gently modified images from the scientific mind of photographer James Slezak," shared East End Arts Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood.

Alpert, a native New Yorker, is known for his exceptional paintings. His works have been shown in fine art galleries all over the U.S. Some of his pieces include American Military Contemporary themes that honor men and women who serve and have served in the U.S. Armed Services. One of his most famous pieces, a triptych, titled Potrait of a Woman was on display in the home of the Vice-President during the 2015 holiday season before it was placed at the Women in Military Service for America Museum at Arlington National Cemetery. He currently maintains working studios in Manhattan and Quogue.

Slezak's works at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery portray a range of interests - some exemplifying the beauty of wind, ocean, and light, while others capture the silhouette of a sailboat and other inanimate objects. Some of the images were captured in Hawaii, Arizona, and locally in Hampton Bays. Slezak, whose work has been on display at different Long Island galleries, brings a very unique side to the world of art. "I have never thought of myself as an artist. I was trained as a scientist in a PhD program in experimental psychology many years ago," Slezak shared. "I left the program but do think of myself as having a scientific approach to most matters. I am comfortable with most things that are technical and worked in information technology for two decades."

He uses his unique background to his advantage. "For me the practice of photography is frequently a flow experience and I am very tuned in to my visual surroundings. Images that have a meditative quality are often the outcome," he added. "Some of my images freeze fleeting movements and shadows while other photos find the beauty in ordinary objects. Sometimes the final version of an image is quite a departure from what was caught originally on the camera sensor."

Exceptional local wines and artisanal cheese will be served at the Artists Reception, which is free and open to the public.

Works by Slezak and Alpert will be on display at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery at the Jamesport Manor Inn through Wednesday, May 3rd.

The Rosalie Dimon Gallery is located at 370 Manor Lane in Jamesport. For more information, call 631-727-0900 or visit www.eastendarts.org.
