Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue will unveil its latest exhibition, Water - Small Works 2017, over Thanksgiving weekend. The national juried charitable exhibition, which will feature over 35 artists, debuts on Small Business Saturday.

"Water is a universal subject, and its varying forms or states (running water, ice, rain, snow, fog) can be artistically approached in numerous styles," Alex Ferrone explained. "Desiring to see how different artists relayed water to their viewer, the Small Works exhibit eclectically demonstrates these findings. We then chose the juror based on their connection with the theme."

Gallerist, and planner, Glynis Berry, A.I.A., LEED AP, served as guest juror. "When it comes to water, these works show its continual attraction - its beauty, its limitless source of inspiration, and its constantly changing state," she explained. "These images evoke human reaction just as the original act of photographing moved the artist."

Berry, along with her husband, is partner of the firm, Studio A/B Architects, which advocates sustainable and experiential designs. She also founded Art Sites, a contemporary art gallery that presents a variety of pieces from abstraction to environmental art. "We found Glynis Berry's artistic experience and environmental knowledge from working with water conservation issues to be the perfect choice, and are very pleased with her selections for this exhibit," Ferrone explained.

Over 50 photographically based pieces will be showcased - both representational and abstract - all of which are 12" or smaller, hence the Small Works title. Participating artists include Judi Altman, Patricia Beary, Peter Braune, Diane Charnov, Bryon Clemence, Laura Dodson, Susan Dooley, Brandie Ferguson, Corey Phillips Fowler, Gerry Giliberti, Andrea M. Gordon, Thomas Halaczinsky, Eva Iacono, Helen Janson, Chris Kaiser, Paula Kelly, Joanie Landau, Katherine Liepe-Levinson, Jack Long, George Lowell, Jenna Lynch, Kate Madara, Janet Maher, Mike McLaughlin, Alissa Rosenberg, Thomas Rozakis, Jim Sabiston, Steven Schreiber, James Slezak, Pin-Chih & Hsuan-Te Su, Mark Testa, Mac Titmus, Sarah Jaffe Turnbull, Pamela Waldroup, and Paul Wood.

Earth/Water 3 by Katherine Liepe-Levinson earned top honors, while Fluid Flower by Jack Long was awarded second place and Rest Stop by George Lowell earned third place. Long Island Sound I by Helen Janson, Swim by Mark Testa, and Niagara Falls #1 by Pamela Waldroup earned honorable mentions.

"Among the other charity work we have done through the Gallery, the Small Works Exhibit is our main annual charitable event. While we have worked with local organizations as beneficiaries in the past such as CAST and North Fork Parish Outreach, as we were prepping the Water Exhibit guidelines, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas," Ferrone noted. "With the unbelievable amount of flooding and damage that occurred, it was more immediate where our assistance should go this year. It is an eerie thought, that one looking to water as inspiration for possible beauty, can also unfortunately find images in its devastation as well."

A percent of sales from the Gallery's commission and the show's entry fee will benefit Hurricane Harvey relief. "We are looking to the Houston Food Bank, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, and Rebuild Texas Fund as beneficiaries," Ferrone concluded. "We hope local folks will consider giving the gift of art for the holidays as their gift will also contribute to help many in need. We look forward to a strong turnout for this exhibit."

"With a wide range of insight, these photographers found magic in classical approaches to landscape, in the abstraction of details and reflections, and in the human condition," Berry added.

An opening reception and awards presentation will be held on Saturday, November 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. Water - Small Works will remain on view through Sunday, January 7, 2018.

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