About The Sea
August 6 – August 22 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 6 6:00PM – 8:00PM
About the Sea unites a diverse collection of artists from New York and New England whose work addresses the elemental, poetic, practical and other-worldly aspects of the ocean. Illuminated blown-glass jellyfish, kinetic sculpture, water and erosion-scapes in oil and monotype, a stacked glass wall, flotsam portraits and an installation of friction-polished clay stones will be featured.
The South Street Gallery is pleased to announce that a series of workshops by some of the participating artists will be offered in conjunction with the show – please see our workshop page for more information. We will also be holding a pre-show poetry and book reading with Billy Hands and Lochlin Ready at Brecknock Hall (1 Brecknock Road, Greenport) on Thursday July 21st at 6:30pm. Hands will be reading his poetry and Ready will be reading from Overboard, Michael J. Tougias’s book describing Ready’s rescue at sea after a 28-hour struggle for survival in the Atlantic.
