The show will run from Thursday, Aug. 6 to Aug. 20, with a reception to be held on Saturday, Aug. 8, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A familiar face on the art circuit, Shey (rhymes with day, is best known by only one name), has maintained a studio in Southampton for the last several years. Past exhibits at the Kramoris Gallery have been popularly greeted by the art crowd regulars, and found many new collectors as well. An artist since her 20s, painting and making collages and achieving a very individual "look", only recently has she melded a hybrid of both mediums in the same piece, refining that quite personal charming look. This look includes both child-like and voluptuous visions set in fantastic scenery, perhaps from a by-gone age.

"Discovery Pirlirr Muuupungu" by Russell James with collaborative art by Clifton Bieundury will be in the exhibition "Nomad Two Worlds" at the Keszler Gallery in Southampton.
