Scott Hewett, Lauren E. Loscialo, Ellyn Tucker And Johnny Easel Featured In "Many A Muse"

Kristen Catalano

The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton will debut its latest exhibition, Many A Muse, on Wednesday, August 23. An opening reception, with music from Hot Lava, will be held on Saturday, August 26, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Many A Muse explores the works of Scott Hewett, Lauren E. Loscialo, Ellyn Tucker and John Chaney aka Johnny Easel.

Hewett moved to Sag Harbor in 1998 to pursue his lifelong passion in art. He holds a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and has won several awards, including the Boston Globe Gold Key and the Tom O'Hara Award for Illustration. Hewett uses almost hyper-real hues and strong contrast to create paintings that pop with unusual sensibility.

"Painting is the one constant in my life," Hewett explained. "Textural objects including old rusted trucks, gas pumps, and animals are my subjects of interest. I wish to reveal the beauty and brilliance of color within."

Losicalo grew up with a strong understanding and respect for the arts through her artist mother and engineer father. Losicalo's early experiences impressed upon her the importance of carefully pairing aesthetics with function when creating public spaces. She has spent over 20 years working as a landscape architect/urban planner in New York City and in 2010 she launched her own design company, Lauren E. Living LLC, that specializes in urban garden and terrace design.

Tucker has lived in NYC her entire life and was brought into the art world through her job as a television producer. Her favorite genre is collage because of its ability to turn pieces into a whole. "As an artist I find disparate images and combine them together using many forms of media, such as paint, ink, threads, fabric, homemade papers, encaustic, etc. to tell a story and narrate a theme," she noted. "My intent is to create a portal, transporting the viewer to new sensory places."

Chaney served in the US Air Force and began painting later in his life, after the birth of his daughter. One summer, while vacationing in Southampton, he met local artist Paton Miller and painted in his studio. Fast forward a bit and Chaney found himself painting once again, but this time being taught by Juan Bastos at a friend's house in Los Angeles. That experience was a turning point. "I knew at that moment that I was here to be a painter, and I have been painting ever since," he noted. Since then, Chaney has developed his own painting tool called HocussFocuss Cognition Scope. Through this he hopes to help other emerging artists find themselves.

Many A Muse will be on view through Sunday, September 10.

The White Room Gallery is located at 2415 Main Street in Bridgehampton. For more information call 917-526-2767 or visit www.thewhiteroom.gallery.
