Artwork on view at Sara Nightingale Gallery.

Sara Nightingale Gallery
Sara Nightingale Gallery (21 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island, 631-793-2256, sara@saranightingale.com, www.saranightingale.com) is pleased to present Yuliya Lanina, "A Very Short Story," through August 13. There will be an opening reception held on August 7, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Lanina's animated paintings and videos reveal her personal mythology, one which is inhabited by a cast of characters who are are both perverse and innocent. Derived from found objects, popular culture and the media, these animal/people creatures have been assembled and disassembled, juxtaposed and altered until the narratives they enact become surreal. Cultural identity, sexuality and playfulness permeate this group of small narrative anecdotes, each a simple painting of modest scale on paper. The videos are made directly from the paintings and are stop motion animations. Lanina, a Russian born artist living in New York, is currently an MFA candidate at Hunter College. She completed most of the paintings in the exhibition at a residency at Yaddo earlier this summer. She has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad and will have solo exhibitions in Australia and London in 2010.

Ted Tyler pottery at Surface Library.

Surface Library
The Surface Library will present "Wood Fired Clay" Asian-Inspired Pottery by Ted Tyler from August 6 through August 15. There will be an Opening Reception on Saturday, August 7, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Using traditional wood firing techniques combined with various ash, slip and glaze applications, Tyler creates an Asian influenced expression combining color, texture and form. Tyler's designs and colors are one-of-a-kind, beautifully subtle and organic. "My work in clay is in the Asian tradition of happenstance, chance happenings throughout the process of creation that allows the plasticity of clay combined with the relentless nature of fire and ash, to find an expression outside of the artist's control", explains Tyler. Starting with loosely thrown forms, Tyler quickly applies slips with large brushes, and finally subjected to three to four days in a wood fired kiln at extreme temperatures, pummeled by wood ash and fire, the forms take on a life of their own. Tyler currently creates his pottery at ShadrowClay, a small ceramic studio located in Springs. His formative training was by well-known Japanese potter, Teruo Hara, in Virginia. Surface Libary is locaed at 845 Springs Fireplace Road, East Hampton (opposite the Pollock-Krasner House in the Springs District). Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday from 1pm to 6pm, and by appointment. For more information call 631-291-9061, e-mail at info@surfacelibrary.com or go to www.surfacelibrary.com.

Romany Kramoris Gallery
Romany Kramoris (41 Main Street, Sag Harbor, 631-72-2499,
www.KramorisGallery.com ) will present "Numinous" new work by Christopher Engel. This is next installment in the fourth annual season of recent mixed-media paintings by Engel. The show will run from Thursday, August 5 to Thursday, August 26, with a reception for the artist Saturday, August 7, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Engel's new work presents an artistic interpretation of the iconography and symbols of world cultures, continuing the inspiration derived from his studies of the work of Carl G. Jung. Engel always depicts visions of the metaphysical and spiritual. In seasons past he has focused on Alchemy, Ancestors, Angels & Prophets. "Numinous," a word coined by Rudolf Otto in his book "The Idea of the Holy" (c.1916), is explained as "a non-rational, non-sensory experience or feeling whose primary and immediate object is outside the self." In the "numinous" experience, a person feels to be in communion with a "holy" other. This experience connects to a communication with deities, the supernatural, the sacred, the holy and the transcendent. These are all themes that Engel includes in his work. Engel follows the traditional artistic "push and pull," pictorial elements of tension and resolution, to exhibit the questions, conflicts, transformations and resolutions of a psyche. The gallery is open seven days a week.
