Hagins & Mortimer Design, the newly launched venture of acclaimed interior designer Elizabeth Hagins and noted Art Advisor & Collector Richard Mortimer show ed the works of two well known painters - artists Christopher Milne and William Pagano at their recently opened design gallery at 9  Windmill Lane, Southampton, 11968. The exhibition set in the midst of important 20th Century  furniture and lighting opened with a reception for the artists on Saturday, August 9 from 5 pm to 7 pm. The show will continue through Monday, August 18. Milne's and Pagano's works can be seen Thursday through Monday from 12 to 6 and Sunday, 12 to 5.
 
 
Christopher Milne is a New York-based artist whose formal approach to art making is primarily concerned with painting. The nuanced underpinnings of his work are conceptually driven and through a decidedly self-aware use of artifice, Milne's work touches on themes of identity, superficiality, idealization and fantasy.  He earned a Bachelor's degree at NSCAD (Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University) in Fine Arts and Art History, has mounted two solo exhibitions, and has been included in numerous group exhibitions. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Financial Times: How to Spend It, ARTLOG as well as other publications and has been placed in private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Recently, he was a visiting artist at NYU Steinhardt School’s Fine Art graduate program. Milne lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
 
William Pagano is a New York based artist whose work explores architecture and its primary structural components, including volume, scale and light. Pagano earned a BA in art education from C.W. Post College and a MA in Art, from Long Island University. After 32 years in art education, Pagano has reestablished his studio practice. In 2013, Pagano had a solo exhibition with Sara Nightingale Gallery and has been included in numerous group shows including artMRKT Hamptons 2013. His work was also featured in the 2013 Hamptons Designer Showhouse.  Pagano lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
 
 
Hagins & Mortimer Design celebrates the glorious diversity of 20th century design, spanning the decades from the 1920s to the present.  Hagins & Mortimer Design features furniture that runs the style gamut from Art Deco to 1970s Brutalism.  The design gallery features luminaries of 20th century design such as T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Karl Springer, Paul McCobb, and Grosfeld House, among others. Lighting is another important part of the mix, and Murano glass from Barovier and Toso, Arteluce, Gio Ponti, and Mazzega are also featured as well as the firm's own custom upholstered pieces. Hagins & Mortimer Design offers interior design and art consultations by appointment.
 
Milne's and Pagano's works can be seen Thursday through Monday from 12 to 6 and Sunday, 12 to 5. Hagins Mortimer Design is located at 9 Windmill Lane, Southampton, NY 11968, 631-488-4310. For more information please contact

This year Arthamptons exbibit were stunning, exciting and exhilarating to view.

I had the pleasure of interviewing three wonderful art experts.

President Vassil Lefterov from Red Royalty Gallery discussed his gallery's Art pieces.

Red Royalty Gallery (RRG) is the first gallery in New York City to specialize in contemporary Eastern European and Russian art.

In the midst of tens of art galleries in the Lower East Side, Red Royalty Gallery, situated at Delancey and Allen Street, is something very different. It is a salon-type contemporary art gallery, rooted back in Art nouveau's eclectic philosophy and the tradition of totality and theatricality: wooden floors, decorated storefront windows, and high chandeliered ceilings, We are pushing for the timely transcension of the widely accepted white cube model for galleries, as we believe that this format has played its role in the history of art, and is slowly becoming dysfunctional as, paradoxically, even temporary art fair booths often get a lot more people traffic in a day than some galleries do in a year. Our philosophy is targeted at the young collectors - those who will be shaping the future of contemporary art when O'Doherty's ideology becomes extinct.
 
I had a pleasant with Director Cheryl Sokolow from C-Fine Art in her booth filled with amazing sculptures.

C Fine Art excels in the acquisition and placement of larger scale, outdoor and indoor sculpture.

They represent the work of mid- to late-career international artists, focusing on abstract and semi-representational sculpture and wall pieces.

Hers art space projects specialize in both building private collections and curating compelling exhibitions of larger scale, outdoor sculpture; commissions and site-specific projects are welcomed.

C Fine Art champions the work of artists who embrace an inventive and unique way of exploring and defining space, revealing a discursive, yet unified, physicality - one that examines our own notions of physical and psychological 'being', relationships and perspective with regard to our environment.

C Fine Art provides estimate reports for existing collections and offers consulting and advisory services to both individual and corporate clients.

Owner Cheryl Sokolow has over 20 years experience in the art business. She has both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Art History.

Famous Artist Kevin Berlin shared his inspirations during our interview.

Internationally renowned artist Kevin Berlin's works are found in the collections of Kim Basinger, Luciano Pavarotti, David Letterman, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dudley and Lisa Anderson, Quincy Jones, Buzz Aldrin, Henry Buhl, and General Motors Corp.

ArtHamptons is the largest art fair on the East End.

The culture of the Hamptons has been formed, in part, by the broad strokes of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Rick Friedman, president of ArtHamptons and an East End resident, became an avid art collector about 10 years ago and was struck by the historical and cultural significance of the area. As his collection grew and his preferences took shape, Friedman noticed that many of America’s most treasured artists had a connection to the Hamptons.

“It started to hit home,” said Friedman, “that some of the most famous artists in American history, and certainly of the 20th century, lived in the neighborhood. It was startling to see, and I thought it was really special.”

Museum Director Tom Edmonds and TV Host Cognac Wellerlane pose for a photo-op at Sayre Barn Grand Reopening on Saturday, June 14, 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A mixture of Southamptonites mingled together to celebrate the grand opening of The Sayre Barn  on Saturday, June 14, 2014.  After many years of standing and weathering the elements
the dilapidated Sayre Barn needed a little assistance in getting back to its orignal state.
Concerned that the building, which is now owned by the Southampton Historical Museum, would continue to deteriorate until it was no longer standing, museum officials last year agreed to take action and restore it.
 
The Sayre Barn will be used for several historical museum events throughout the year, and it is opening was a grand success with a photography show by local photographer Ulf Skogsbergh, who has spent the past nine months documenting its restoration.
 
“What is great about Ulf’s project is that he documented all of the mess,” museum director Tom Edmonds reveal during our interview. “So we are going from a mess to a beautiful multipurpose space.”
 
The barn was built in 1825 by the Huntting family and sold to Isaac Sayre a year later. At that time, it was at the corner of Main Street and Hampton Road and used for livestock. According to the museum, it used to be known as the “billboard” barn because posters identifying wanted criminals and runaway slaves from the South, and also advertising help wanted and upcoming events, like the circus, were posted on the facade.
 
The barn was later owned by the Dimon family and became an antiques store in the 1930s, when most of the changes, like new windows, a loft and a staircase, were made.
After World War II, the family gave the barn to the Southampton Colonial Society, which later became the Historical Society, which is based at the museum. In 1952, the organization moved the barn onto its property on Meeting House Lane by rolling it, on logs, down Main Street. Soon thereafter, it became the museum’s dry goods store and a tourist attraction.
 
In the 1990s, a drunk driver crashed into it and in making repairs, new wood was used to replace the old. The structure was closed to the public in 2008 because it had deteriorated so badly.
 
For the renovation project, the historical museum used the services of Strada Baxter Design Build of Amagansett, a construction firm specializing in historic restoration, to deconstruct the building down to its skeleton, and then rebuild it using whatever original woodwork they could. Where necessary, the group utilized newer materials, melding the pieces together.
“They meticulously saved whatever they could,” Mr. Edmonds said. “It was a very expensive project and very laborious—they re-created it just he way it originally was, they did the right thing.”
 
Mr. Skogsbergh’s photographs, approximately 30 pictures ranging from standard size to 20 feet long, will be on display at the museum from June 14 through October 18. Admission to the museum costs $4.

“We needed to document this restoration,” Mr. Edmonds said. “To be a proper preservationist you have to document wear and tear, so this will show what these objects looked like in 2013 so that when we look at things again in 2020, we can see deterioration and changes and determine how to fix it. Ulf took the project and went to the moon with it—he took a museum procedure and turned it into fine art.”
 
The museum plans to utilize the space more often, for example for small gatherings, dances, educational classes, or meetings. More information about the barn and photography exhibit can be found at Southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.

Water Mill Museum's Annual Art Show - Season Opening And Art Exhibit Opening Reception Party  Saturday, May 31, 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Artist Greta Staph Waterman, TV Host Entertainment Journalist Cognac Wellerlane and Publicist/Artist Ann Lombardo pose for a photo-op at the Water Mill Art Exhibit Opening Reception  Party on May 31in in Watermill, NY
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Art entusiast and guests enjoyed an evening the Hamptons at the Water Mill Museum's Annual Art Show. The event featured local fine art, for display and for sale, Water Mill 'grinding' demonstration, refreshments and opening reception for the season!
 
The art exhibit was lots of fun and acelebration that was open to all interested in seeing this historical demonstration of the giant grinding stones. 
All proceeds benefit the restoration and preservation of the Water Mill Museum.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Publicist and Artist Ann Lombardo who spoke about the rich history of the Museum.
 
The history of the water mill begins with Edward Howell who came to Southampton, Long Island in 1640 with English colonists from Lynn, Massachusetts. Howell had owned a water mill on a pond in Lynn so it was not surprising that he settled on a 100-acre pond three miles from Southampton for his new venture.

Howell - the wealthiest citizen of the new colony and its magistrate - got the town to give him 40 acres on the pond and to provide labor and money to support his project. The mill was built and millstones hewn from two boulders found in the moraine north of the site. Oral history places this first mill, which was probably grinding by 1644, several hundred yards north of it current site on Mill Creek.
In 1726, and again in 1789, permission was granted by the town to move the mill south and build a combination dam/roadway at its present location. There's no record indicating whether the mill was moved intact or if parts were used to construct a new mill - but the latter is considered most likely. The original mill may have had an overshot wheel but at the new site an undershot wheel was used. Evidence uncovered in the basement of the mill suggests that at sometime in its operation a horizontal tub water wheel was in use.
 
I also had chance to chat with Artist Greta Stapf Waterman who displayed her piece of Art at the reception.
 
An accomplished artist from NYC, Greta has had numerous solo and group shows in SoHo, Chelsea, 57th St. & 38th St. galleries in NYC as well as in the Hamptons and around Long Island.
 
Featured achievements have been: Bonnie Pearl Feder Memorial Award for Excellence presented by the Long Island Arts Council, Freeport, NY; “Mellieur Colorist” presented by Mssr. Chirac at the 8th Grand Prix Fine Art de Paris, Salon de Vieux Colombier, Paris, France; Unicef Recognition for Presentation Booklet of 10 World Artists European Distribution.
 
Illustrated book covers include: Such Men are Dangerous: The Fanatics of 1692 and 2004; The New Wife: The Evolving Role of the American Wife; Inventing Savannah; and The Men Out There: A Women’s Little Black Book.

Art and Photography enthusiast gathered for a Art Reception in Patchogue, Long Island to view a collection of special photographs entitled Northwest Meets Southeast.  The collections are photographs by 30 Long Island fine art photographers

A chance meeting of two fine art photographers Aleta Cortes of Patchogue ArtSpace and Holly Gordon of fotofoto gallery in Huntington very much like Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train but no murder to be committed…just a killer photography exhibition…led to Aleta suggesting that the two groups of Long Island artists display their work together in the Patchogue ArtSpace Gallery.

Compared to North by Northwest, the coordinates of northwest and southeast draw us into this production with breathless anticipation and suspense. This collaboration of 30 Long Island artists is a visual feast to be followed by a reciprocal exhibit in Huntington later in this year. The show opens March 16, 2014 and runs through March 31, 2014. Public reception is Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 7-9:30pm.

Art Lovers attended An Exhibit of  Retrospective Art and Photography Of Iconic Photographer Robert Farber’s To View His Illustrious Work For A Fabulous Decade In Fashion and Art on January 30, 2014 at the Cavalier Gallery located at 3 West 57th Street on Fifth Avenue just steps away from Bergdorf Goodman.
 
Robert Farber's global recognition has been established through his books, fine art exhibitions, lectures, TV interviews and award winning advertising campaigns. All in the genres of fashion, beauty, and life style.
 
Robert Farber’s style has influenced generations of photographers. His painterly, impressionistic style captures the essence of composition in every genre, including nudes, still life, landscapes and architecture. His ten photo art books have sold over half a million copies.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis brought Farber into Doubleday for the publication of his book “By The Sea,” which won the Art Director’s Award for color photography. Aside from numerous creative awards, Robert Farber also received the Photographer of the Year from PMA (Photographic Manufacturers Association), ASP International Award from the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and The American Society of Photographers. This award was given to those who’ve made a significant contribution to the science and art of photography. Some previous recipients of this award include Dr. Edwin Land (inventor of the Polaroid), George Hurrell, and National Geographic.
 
Farber’s work with nudes in fine art as well as in the commercial realm is known and respected. He has lectured for Ogilvy & Mather on the “Nude in Advertising.” ASMP requested to use Farber’s nudes as an examples of the artistic application in support of the National Endowment of Arts, after its backing of the controversial Mapplethorpe/Serrano exhibit.
