This weekend marks the opening of the February exhibition at the Quogue Library Art Gallery, “Natural Elements: Landscape Oils by Mary Laspia.”
Ms. Laspia is inspired by the endless landscapes found on the East End of Long Island. She has captured these views by choosing palettes that reflect a particular mood, which she says expresses her personal interaction with the area and invites a shared, familiar experience with the viewer.
Light and mood are predominant features of Ms. Laspia’s work. Over the past 15 years she was mentored by Janet Jennings and other accomplished artists in the area and has developed a unique style of representing the famous light of the East End.
She has shown her work on eastern Long Island and in New York, including at Karyn Mannix Contemporary in Southampton, Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton, Guild Hall in East Hampton, Ashawagh Hall in Springs, and Pen and Brush in New York City.
Art Gallery committee member Doreen Ceglia is chair for this show, which will be on display from February 1 through 26. An artist’s reception is scheduled on Saturday, February 15, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
