a new exhibit at Southampton Cultural Center
's Levitas Center for the Arts, takes a look at the ever-evolving East End backdrop.
"Scenes and Structures

The show will feature grand images of Long Island architecture and landscapes that the artists were drawn to, like a sunrise over Wainscott Pond or a dock on a foggy day. For this exhibit, Anthony Lombardo chose to focus on the diminishing number of local farm structures. One of his pieces highlights a barn that was recently torn down, and replaced with new buildings. As for Eileen Dawn Skretch, her wall-sized paintings depict beaches, farmscapes, and the East End's awe-inspiring big skies.
"Anthony Lombardo, a Water Mill photographer who has always loved the outdoors, and Eileen Dawn Skretch, a painter who is inspired by the vastness of natural surroundings, will team up to feature their big beautiful images," she added. "It's a family-friendly art show that we hope the public will appreciate."
