Neil Leinwohl: In 1966 I left a Fine Arts Scholarship at the School Of Visual Arts and enlisted in the Army to be a photographer. Five months later I found myself in Vietnam armed with a Leica M3 and a couple of Nikons. I create art on the computer, narratives built with photographs and graphics I’ve manipulated. I also work with acrylics and oil paint sticks. Since 1970, I’ve worked in advertising, as a writer, art director and creative director. I now work on my art full-time..My art is about personal mythology, both real and conjured and the unreliable nature of memory. I create art on the computer, narratives built with photographs and graphics I’ve manipulated.
Aurelio Torres: Born in Montevideo, Uruguay to a family of artists, Aurelio was raised in New York City. His father, Horacio Torres, was an accomplished classically trained artist. His artistic training was in Barcelona, Spain, where he studied for several years with his uncle Augusto Torres. Aurelio’s grandfather, was the acclaimed Modernist Master Joaquin Torres-Garcia. Aurelio’s travels have inspired him to create much of his work in natural outdoor settings. His aesthetic sensibility is one of essential simplicity and natural, uncontrived beauty.

ART & DESIGN
Earth Day Weekend Celebration
East Hampton - NY
eARThHAMPTONS, the brainchild of artist Anahi DeCanio, creative director of ArtyZen Studios, will be an Earth Day ART & DESIGN WeekendCelebration at historic Ashawagh Hall. The exhibit will showcase works from Josh Hadar- Dan Welden - Jim Gemake, Christine D'Addario, Lori Horowitz, Geralyne Lewandowski, Michele Dragonetti, Mary Milne, Idoline Duke and Anahi DeCanio. ZCI Woodworks will be exhibiting beautiful benches and tables made from reclaimed lumber.
Edwina von Gal, will be presenting The PRFCT Landscape at 11 am on Sunday April 24th. Principal of her eponymous landscape design firm since 1984, Edwina has created landscapes with a focus on simplicity and sustainability for private and public clients around the world. A light lunch will be served courtesy of The Terry Thompson Team at Douglas Elliman.
Much sought after Naula will be showing custom made furniture. One of the pieces on exhibit, is a specially made ottoman called the Time Capsule. Naula created with a core of reclaimed magazines to replace the wood structure that would otherwise be needed to build this type of furniture. The foundation for this idea is that many years from now, when magazines, paper publications, etc. are a thing of the past, this capsule project has recorded a moment in time from our generation for a future generation to one day discover.
Activities are planned throughout both days with local purveyors of the best natural products from the East End. Meet award winning artists and artisans along with the best of local earth friendly vendors such as Hamptons Handpoured and upcycled vintage treasures from Garagiste Chic. Perfect Earth Project is planning additional activities on the Ashawagh lawn. Music will be provided by Job Potter.

Interior designers in attendance can earn a Continuing Education Unit for this lecture which will also be of interest to the general public. Master printmaker Dan Welden will be making a presentation of eco-friendly non hazardous print making techniques.
Spring is a wonderful time of year to visit the area. Gardens and fields will be flourishing but the shops and restaurants will be easier to navigate before the Summer crowds arrive. This is a great weekend to feed your creative soul and enjoy the East End. Ashawagh Hall is just a few miles from the center of town and the famous home of artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner.
eARThHAMPTONS Art Opening Reception will take place on Saturday April 23rd from 6 to 9.

LOVE is always on trend... El AMOR siempre esta de moda! Visual reminders around the home can put a bright smile in your heart! With love from ArtyZen Studios to you...
Benjamin Moore just announced choosing white as color of the year 2016. A bold choice? Perhaps, taking into consideration the announcement comes from a company with a pretty amazing array of color choices in their palette. That said, white on white decor has been a trend for years. Unlike other trends from the past, you can't go into any social media sites that feature decor without continuing to see white on white rooms.
We live faster paced lives with images on everything from our daily visits to social media sites to our very phones. White offers a sanctuary to the eye. It can be calming, relaxing and energizing all at once.
I have had white on white rooms going back to my single days apartment in NYC. And yes, that does go back to earlier then the beginning of the trend (!)... As an artist living with color in and out of my head 24/7 white has been a loyal friend and not just for contrast but loving how the hues play in the light. Artwork using white as a main component can show all the subtleties of the color and can be challenging but the results can be beautiful.
Home furnishings in white have been around for a while, as have home accessories but it will be interesting to see if this new color announcement brings new ideas on how to incorporate the color into our home decor choices. As an art studio, we can't wait to see how artists who follow color trends in the design industry will reinterpret their work adapting to a trend that doesn't seem to have an end in sight.
Benjamin Moore used these words as the narrative behind their 2016 color :
crisp white borders...
What will your narrative be?
(Just in case...I'm in no way associated with Benjamin Moore or getting paid in any way - this is just a comment on their 2016 color choice)
