If you're looking for something to do over Thanksgiving weekend, or an excuse to sneak away from family for a bit, Sara Nightingale Gallery in Sag Harbor is hosting an opening reception on Saturday, November 25 for an exhibition highlighting new and recent works by Perry Burns, Cara Enteles and Anne Raymond.

A portion of proceeds from works sold over the holiday weekend will be donated to East Hampton Meals on Wheels. "It's Thanksgiving, so a food charity seemed like the obvious choice, even though the artwork in the exhibition is not food-related," Nightingale explained. "I really like the global organization, The Hunger Project, because they are highly rated, and they focus on sustainability and self-reliance (rather than just handing out food). But I decided to go with a local organization, instead, because it's something people can relate to here in the Hamptons." The 501c3 organization, who receives no federal, state, county or local government subsidies, delivers two nutritious meals per day to clients through the town of East Hampton, Monday to Friday. Meals on Wheels serves 600 meals each week.

Additionally, the Gallery will be raffling off a stunning floral bouquet donated by Lilee Fell Flowers. "I, myself, haven't really had much experience with Meals on Wheels out here, but I am looking forward to learning more about them," she noted. "They were recommended to me by Lilee Fell, who is donating the floral bouquet on their behalf."

Burns' works explore hue, form, line, texture and pattern, merging the "traditions of Islamic pattern and abstract expressionism." He received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and has had his work showcased both nationally and internationally, including at the Islip Art Museum, the Parrish Art Museum, and private collections.

"I do not want to reproduce the visible, I want to create an experience of perception," Burns noted.

Enteles, who received a BFA from Parsons School of Design and also studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, focuses on nature and landscape paintings that she creates on aluminum and plexiglas panels. The pieces encompass silkscreen printing and oil painting with other techniques.

"In my mind the trees and plants of the paintings represent nature as a being. They exude power that humans continually try to manipulate," said Enteles.

Anne Raymond studied at School of Visual Arts in New York and received a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Her works have been shown nationally and internationally, and can be seen in the permanent collections of prestigious museums, such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

"In both my large abstract oils on canvas and my works on paper, I'm interested in the evocative power of inferred space and energy beyond the edges of the canvas," Raymond reflected.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, November 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit will remain on view through Sunday, December 31.

Sara Nightingale Gallery is located at 26 Main Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, call 631-793-2256 or visit www.saranightingale.com.
