East End Artists Bring To Life Local Surroundings And The Dogs Of Abroad

"North Fork Spring" by Patricia Feiler.

East End Arts is paying homage to the works of Patricia Feiler and Jeanette Martone during their latest art show at Rosalie Dimon Gallery at Jamesport Manor Inn. An artists reception for the exhibit, which is currently on display, will take place on Sunday, March 13th from 3 to 5 p.m.

"My paintings are autobiographical, in that there is a memory of my having been in the places that I paint," explained Feiler, who resides in Mattituck. "Some are done Plein Air, right on site, and others from memory." For Feiler, producing a landscape feels similar to making music. "I have a strong background in music and I have discovered a familiar rhythm in the motion of the brush across the canvas," she said. "The process of painting has an energy and a crescendo. My paintings begin with thumbnail sketches and then as the painting takes shape, the colors and forms begin to blend." When creating a piece, she evaluates each stage. "I have to stand back and squint to see the images," she said. "I can only really see my paintings from a distance, yet I hear them with every brush stroke." As for the East End Arts show, Feiler channeled her passions. "The paintings on exhibit in the Rosalie Dimon Gallery reflect my own interest in the work of the Impressionists, both in art and music," Feiler noted. "Artists Monet and William Merritt Chase are strong influences for me. Their paintings have a sense of place and yet there is a mysterious quality to the simplest of images." She often finds inspiration in her surroundings. "Color within shadows shimmer in the same way as the melodies and harmonies of composers Debussy and Ravel. The interaction between light and color is fascinating to me," she added. "The shadow on the curve of a sail, dots of sunlight on a wave, or fading sun on a dune will change in an instant as a cloud passes over. Capturing that instant is what excited me about creating a painting."

Martone, who calls Bay Shore home, used her works as a tribute to her time abroad. While volunteering in the developing world, she frequently came across stray dogs that were aimlessly wandering throughout the streets. "I was moved by their vulnerability as well as their resiliency and grace, and I felt compelled to honor their spirit in my drawings," said Martone. "My pencil and ink renderings, with infinite detail, capture in a moment of time the texture of fur; the reflection of an eye, the poverty of their surroundings. My works invite the viewer to delve into the drawing and emerge into the animal's reality."

This exhibit will be on view until Wednesday, May 4th.

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