The artistic minds of artist and photographer Bonnie Lautenberg and sculptor Carole A. Feuerman will come together for an exhibition at Nicole Ripka Gallery.
The Water Mill-based gallery will celebrate the two artists during an opening reception on Saturday, August 22nd from 5 to 8 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation and the Lung Cancer Research Foundation.
Lautenberg is well-known for her portraits of political figures, including Barack Obama
, Hilary Clinton
and Joe Biden
. This exhibition will feature some of the artist's career highlights, as well as newer projects. More recently, her series of Pop Rock photos take a look into the lives of the biggest artists in today's pop culture world, such as Miley Cyrus
and Justin Bieber
. Other works include a series of photos from Cuba, Antarctica and ancient art.
Feuerman's life-sized, realistic sculptures of swimmers and divers can be seen all over the world. While she has a knack for painting, and has created the artwork for many album covers, including The Rolling Stones
World Tour Book, Alice Cooper
and Aretha Franklin
