Two-Day "A-B-C" Exhibition To Highlight Trio Of Artists

For two days only, A-B-C, an exhibition highlighting the works of Annie Sessler, Bobby Lurie and Chuck Manion, will be on display at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton.

Many of Sessler's A-B-C pieces revolve around an oceanic ode that explores the artist's eel and octopus gyotaku impressions. Others, assemblages, drawings and paintings, do not share that theme. Sessler, whose studio is located in Montauk, often collaborates with her husband, Jim Goldberg.

Lurie, who was born in Northern California, grew up near the beach in San Francisco. Before settling down in New York City, the artist journeyed to and resided throughout Europe, North America and the Middle East. "I am mainly a self taught artist. I paint from being in the ocean and what I perceive on my way there," Lurie reflected. "I am always on my way there. I paint so I don't have to write."

Manion is also based in Montauk, where he lives and creates. For his three dimensional paintings, Manion utilizes unconventional materials. "His pieces resemble something useful, a carpenter's poem of the sea and himself and the unlikely," it has been noted.

A-B-C can be seen on Saturday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, November 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception, which is open to the public, will be held on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. There is no fee to attend.

Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit ashawagh-hall.org.
