The North Shore Art Guild’s first exhibition show of 2013 is exquisite. The Guild features local artists who work with oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, sculpture, and photography. The NSAG was established in 1991 and since that time, their membership has grown to over 100 artists, working across these diverse mediums. They invite all artists, in any level or medium to join, learn and grow with The North Shore Art Guild. As I made my way around the exhibit in the Port Jefferson Village Center, I was accompanied by local docent and artist, Joe Miller and could not help but notice the beauty and the delicacy in every piece on display. A few artists that particularly stood out to me were Barbara Bilotta and Jon Peter Falzone. Barbara’s pieces spoke so loudly. Known for her work with acrylics and water and nature-themed imagery, (one example pictured below,) looking at Bilotta's work, you are left with your imagination staring into her interpretive brilliance. A particular piece by Mr. Falzone that left me in complete wonder was a photograph of a woman in a white dress sitting on her writing desk with her head down. I was shocked when I came to learn this was actually a photograph and not a painting. The magnitude of emotions shown in this woman’s face was agonizing. I think to capture so much sorrow and reaction on film is a showing of great talent. The North Shore Art Guild provides instruction and encourages appreciation of art within a forum of mutual appreciation designed for exchanging ideas and encourages individual growth. I viewed some beginner pieces and also pieces by more recognized talented artists. The NSAG is comprised of creatives spouting unique points of view and raw talent that oozes out of their fingertips. All art is available for purchase and some of the pieces are even part of a raffle. The exhibition runs until this Friday, May 3rd.
