It was a lovely day in Bellport, Wednesday, July 4th. The celebration of our country’s Independence is always a reminder of how lucky we are to have freedom and rights in the United States of America. The South Bay Art Association (SBAA) sponsored a wonderful show that day, along Bellport Lane. Artists displayed their artwork of all medias, including wooden sculptures, oil paintings, watercolors and photographs.
Every year, I look forward to strolling down the Lane with my family, talking to artists and “bumping into” friends and neighbors that I don’t often see. This year was no exception. Lots to talk about and lots of catching up to do.
Artists from all over Long Island display their works of art, each having unique strengths in their media and drawing inspiration from their life experiences and inspiring others to relish in the beauty of art. With the perfect weather that day and the enthusiasm in the air, it was a wonderful adventure.
SBAA meets once a month, on a Wednesday at the Bellport Community Center in Bellport. The group also holds Plein Aire excursions on Tuesday mornings in the Summer, and portrait sketch sessions in the winter months.
If you are interested in participating in next year’s show, or would like more information about SBAA, visit the following web-sites: www.southbayart.org and southbayart.blogspot.com. You may also e-mail your questions to email@example.com.
Enjoy the photographs my daughter Erin, took that day.
