"Continuing to spring into our sixth season of fine art offerings at the Gallery, we are pleased to be presenting wonderful works of ten artists for this exhibition," Gallery owner Alex Ferrone shared. " We have an array of artistic styles and techniques on exhibit including hand-painted silver gelatin photographs, black & white and color pigment prints, digital art, and mixed media pieces produced with india ink, acrylics, and pigment. Subject matter varies as well and includes abstract compositions, representational scenes, and still-life images."

Jim Sabiston, who hails from Bay Shore, is an freelance artist who has received awards from National Geographic Explorer magazine, the Adirondack Mountain Club, the Islip Arts Council, Gallery North, and East End Arts, and has been published in other books and magazines. His latest series uses his background as a painter and photographer to create works that mix bold fundamentals of both mediums.

Based out of Coram, Mac Titmus is an award-winning photographic artist that combines the worlds of digital art and classic photography, resulting in "Interpretative Photography."

"Along with all new framed works on exhibit, each artist will have a selection of unframed prints available, providing a varied structure for our viewers and collectors with access to more works at additional affordable price points," Ferrone added. "To expand our reach with this larger selection of works, we are extending this eclectic exhibition as we Spring into Summer in a few short weeks."
