East End Arts
has partnered with Southampton Cultural Center
for a new invitational photography exhibition, State of Grace
. Curated by Cait McCarthy, the show will highlight works from Griffin Shapiro, Sarah Cebulski, Lena Nicholson, Thais Aquino and McCarthy.
"Photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression," McCarthy reflected.
McCarthy, who resides in Northport, owns a photography business and often exhibits her works in Brooklyn cafes and juried show. This marks her first show on Long Island - as both an artist and curator. Her pieces are influenced by "ethereality and scale of nature."

Shapiro is based in New York City
. His pieces center upon portraits and surf photograph, but he's also been exploring street photography, landscapes, and currently large format photography.
Cebulski calls Jacksonville, FL home. She was born in Nanchang China but grew up on Long Island with her adoptive family. After she was gifted with a Polaroid camera from grandfather at 12-years-old, Cebulski fell in love with photography. She focuses on both film and conceptual images.
Nicholson also resides in New York. The School of Visual Arts alumna presents intimate and seductive pieces. Nicholson started to dabble in abstract still life
photography in 2015. Curated by Jessica Craig
-Martin, Nicholson'sBody of Work,
was exhibited in New York during her inaugural solo show. She followed that up with O
in 2017. Nicholson's work has appeared in more than 20 exhibitions in Colorado, Georgia, and New York, as well as in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Observer,
A piece by Thais Aquino.
Aquino is based out of Brooklyn. "I am an aesthete. A person who drinks in beauty. I flourish in the world of color, textures and light. I find peace in the grammar of nature; the subtlety of the movements of human body; the nuances hidden within the geometry of life," she reflected. "My work is a reflection of this obsession. I find hope in the solitary. The quest
to know one's self and the world around us free from distractions and 21st century bustle. Photography is my gateway to that world. The lens is my portal to a more beautiful and honest reality. Here I find myself and I discover others."
State of Grace
can be seen at Southampton Cultural Center Friday, December 8 through February 19, 2018. An Artists' Reception with brews from Southampton Publick House
will be held Saturday, December 16 from 4 to 6 p.m.
