Two new photographic series by regional artists Carolyn Conrad and Scott Farrell will be presented at the Alex Ferrone Gallery in an exhibition entitled Perceptive Dimension. The exhibition will run from Saturday, September 9 through Sunday, October 8, with an opening reception and artist talk on Saturday, September 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"We are pleased to be presenting Carolyn Conrad and Scott Farrell again as they have exhibited different works with us in the past," said Gallery Director, Alex Ferrone. "On exhibit now are works revealing the artists' sensitivity and awareness of the integral spatial and dimensional aspects of varied scenes."

Conrad grew up in Acton, Massachusetts and used her rural town as inspiration for her work. After exhibiting in Boston, Conrad moved to New York City and received her MA from New York University. Today she works from her studio in Sag Harbor. Conrad's work has appeared in several galleries, institutions, and museums, including the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY; Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, NY; Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA; De Cordova Museum in Lincoln, MA; and Cloitre des Billettes, Paris in France, among others.

"Carolyn Conrad's continuation on minimalist handmade constructions portrays more intimate and less temporal domestic spaces than her previously exhibited expansive rural scenes," reflected Ferrone. "Using the disciplines of painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography, she has taken a new direction with color, tone, space, light source, and perspective to create an exterior landscape that offers balance, harmony, and a respite from an internal world."

Scott Farrell has created vivid and textural landscapes from weathered surfaces that are temporary and may have measured only one or two feet wide. "His new series of images includes visions of multi-dimensional mountain ranges, deserts, coastlines and beaches that have deceptively appeared on surfaces of boats in dry dock throughout the Northeast," said Ferrone.

A Long Island-based photographer and artist, Farrell is known for his eclectic vision and wide array of subjects for his images that span rural and urban scenes, landscapes, and architecture. Farrell had one of his images chosen as a finalist in National Geographic's Landmark Moments 2016 competition.

Alex Ferrone Gallery is located at 25425 Main Road in Cutchogue. For more information, call 631-734-8545 or visit www.alexferronegallery.com.
