This year’s event includes a sister show at the William Ris Gallery in Jamesport entitled eARThNOFO.  In addition, owner and gallery director Mary Cantone will bring select works from her gallery to the South Fork by participating in eARThHAMPTONS in East Hampton.  Her gallery has quickly become a strong contributor to the arts in the region, representing a stable of talented prominent artists and artisans.

WILLIAM RIS EARTHNOFO EARTHHAMPTONS ANAHI DECANIO

Mary’s career in designing interiors and space planning has included collaborating with artists and clients to incorporate the fine arts into their lives. A bonus to Cantone’s innate and nurtured abilities is her keen sensibility for mixing mediums, styles and colors.  The gallery has been received to great success and has become a major contributor to the arts in the East End.  Her exhibits and art openings always bring in a crowd of art collectors and enthusiasts who have become loyal followers of the gallery.

Adding much excitement is the participation of acclaimed master craftsman and fine custom furniture designer Angel Naula. Naula will be contributing the Hamptons Stiletto Daybed, the latest version of his award-winning design as a special addition to the show Naula Workshop has collaborated with such acclaimed interior designers and architects and has completed high-profile residential projects for Robert Kennedy Jr., Hugh Jackman, Norah Jones, and Rupert Murdoch, among others.

Additionally, Naula created custom made pieces for the penthouse exquisitely designed by Kelly Behun for architect Rafael Viῆoly’s 432 Park Avenue.  Naula will be participating in upcoming BKLYN DESIGNS designing the VIP lounge with high end furniture pieces and artwork from Ms. DeCanio. Naula’s work has been featured in such notable venues as Esquire SoHo, Pulse Contemporary Art, Maison de Luxe Beverly Hills, Elle Décor, New York Magazine, The New York Times, and the Hamptons Designer Showhouse.  Besides his prominent role in the world of luxury design, Naula is a constant contributor to several numerous charities, including Design on a Dime. Stark Carpet is contributing to the event by providing a rug as a floor design element to offset the Hamptons Stiletto Daybed.

Following last year’s format, there will be additional programs and events throughout the weekend. On Friday evening, the show will host a special broadcast of the 2017 Wealth Report created by a team of experts from Knight Frank Residential in collaboration with Douglas Elliman. The report is the industry’s leading publication on global prime property markets, wealth distribution and luxury trends.  The panel of experts discuss trends in art collecting, classic cars, and wine markets as well as real estate. The Wealth Report offers invaluable insight into global trends and what will impact personal assets in the years to come.

After the broadcast, a chat will be led by Dawn Watson, creator of Hamptons Party Girl and public relations manager for Douglas Elliman for the Hamptons and Long Island.  Anahi DeCanio has recently joined the Douglas Elliman team combining her Wall St. background and the same matchmaking and marketing skills she uses to put together eARThHAMPTONS to work with clients in the world of real estate.

ADDITIONAL INFO on ARTISTS and PARTICIPANTS:

ANAHI  DECANIO

Anahi is an Uruguayan born NY artist who is deeply influenced by her surroundings, whether nature or the energy and patina on an urban wall.  Art imitating life, Ms. DeCanio’s work is characterized by a myriad of layers that reveal themselves with a bold voice or subtle whispers creating striking abstracts that are rich in texture and meaning.  Her life experience is as eclectic as her work.  With a Wall Street background and a life-long love of art and design, Anahi has recently joined the Douglas Elliman team as a perfect place to combine all those elements.

NAULA

Born in Cuenca, Ecuador, Angel Naula has spent nearly his entire life designing and fabricating custom furniture, apprenticing in his family’s own workshop until the age of six and building his first piece of furniture when he was just 13. Upon immigrating to the United States, Angel carried on the integrity, mastery, and craftsmanship instilled by his father, his grandfather, and the generations of furniture makers before them.

In 2002, Angel opened Naula Workshop and has since collaborated with such acclaimed interior designers and architects as Robin Wilson, Jamie Drake, Kelly Behun, Philip Gorrivan, and Mark Zeff. He has completed high-profile residential projects for Robert Kennedy Jr., Hugh Jackman, Norah Jones, and Rupert Murdoch, as well as commercial projects for Columbia Pictures, Mandarin Oriental NY, LaGuardia Airport, and various celebrated restaurants. His work has also been featured in such notable venues as Esquire SoHo, Pulse Contemporary Art, Maison de Luxe Beverly Hills, Elle Décor, The New York Times, and the Hampton Designer Showhouse.

WILLIAM RIS GALLERY

Mary Cantone recently opened William Ris East in Jamesport, New York on Long Island’s North Shore to continue the traditions of 50 year old William Ris Gallery in Stone Harbor.  Mary’s career in designing interiors and space planning has included collaborating with artists and encouraging clients to enhance, with passion, the fine arts. A bonus to Cantone’s innate and nurtured abilities is her keen sensibilities for mixing mediums, styles and colors.  The gallery has been received to great success and has a major contributor to the arts in the East End.  William Ris is located on Main Road, in Jamesport, NY – adjacent to the Sherwood House Vineyards Tasting Room.

PETER GUMPEL

Peter is a trained architect fascinated by light, shadow and perspective and the resulting volumetric impact of the subject.  As a figurative water-colorist, he uses his medium to record what he sees going beyond simple documentation.  He uses factual rendition as a stimulus to create images that capture the essence of the scene or person.  Mr. Gumpel is currently serving as president of the Artists Alliance of East Hampton

PHYLLIS CHILLINGWORTH

Phyllis expresses her “love of Earth” in a group of oil paintings that capture the diverse energy

she experienced in Nova Scotia, Montana, Provence and in Montauk.  Phyllis paints both plein air

and from memory; her studio is in Montauk, NY.  The show will include elusive ocean watercolors

painted in Montauk. Phyllis is a graduate of The Institute of Design, IIT, Chicago and The School

of Art & Architecture, Yale. She has had three solo shows at Atlantic Gallery, NYC.

LORI HOROWITZ

Her “Nurture series” of papier mache sculptures, depict individuals in society and their interactions. “I seem to become somehow bonded to these individuals carefully exploring and interpreting their attitudes. Often unseen and unheard, we all contribute and make up this diverse and multi-faceted population. I appreciate the complexity of each piece, collapsing three dimensional pieces into 2 and 3-dimensional space.  I love the process of combining photography, wire, papier mache and painting. This innovative, figurative analysis is a socio/ psycho study created to bring light to the attention seekers and the overlooked of our society.”

CYNTHIA SOBEL

I strive to give my paintings the fluidity of water so that the colors move around the picture plane. While it is the digital age, in creating the painting, I emphasize the movement of the hand, the arm, the body, the brush and the pen. I am interested in rhythm and breaking the rhythm; deliberation and spontaneity, mood and passion. Colors spill and run together.  Reflections of my memories constantly appear. For example, they sometimes start with my childhood memories of wading in rivers, stones under my bare feet, looking through the water so I could trap minnows and tadpoles with my hands. I think of clouds moving across the sky and the patterns of light filtering through the leaves above my head. The memories and the forms on the canvas to which they relate are evanescent. The resulting images are not literal, but are open to interpretation, capable of depicting something different each time they are viewed. The viewer must make his or her own discovery.  My paintings are like a walk in the woods without a path. It is only subtle signs that show the way out, always toward the light. In many ways, the painting is “not an image but an event.” (Rosenthal on Kline)

ALYSSA PEEK

Alyssa Peek lives in NYC and the Hamptons with her husband she is a portrait and fine art photographer.  Prior to starting Peek Photography, she spent over twenty years working in the fashion industry and left to continue creating beautiful things through the lens of her camera.  Her original work brings a fresh and innovative perspective to traditional photography, always reflecting her love of abstract expressionism and modern art.  Images are either captured abstractly or modified in-camera or post-production where she artistically enhances the ordinary to make it extraordinary.  She works directly with interior designs to create custom sized pieces to fit their individual needs.

LISA PETKER MINTZ

Lisa’s paintings are autobiographical and focus on different places, people and life experiences.  The themes are personal but universal, death, love, divorce, marriage and children dominate the work.  Landscape and sense of place also play a  major role.  The act of picture making is a critical of the journey.  “I need to make beautiful, cohesive, and entertaining paintings.  I paint with the same intensity in which I live my life, but also maintain the naïve view that in today’s chaotic society there are moments in life that can be pure and beautiful.  Life is chaotic; I juggle so many different roles.  My working process is the same.  I juggle many different images and materials.  The process is trial and error until the conclusion is clear”

Come Out to Play… Matters of the heart

anahidecanio-painting-hamptons-social-life-interior-design

Not totally certain of the exact definition of Serendipity, unless of course, you’re thinking of the fabulous frozen hot chocolate served at the namesake place in New York City.   I spoke to several friends who gave me a variety of interpretations.  But…

I’ll backtrack. I was supposed to “Come Out to Play” this past Saturday to attend a closing reception for “Abstract Women”. The group exhibit was an all women show curated by Mary Cantone, Director and owner at William Ris East Gallery in Jampesport, NY.  The show included my artwork (Anahi DeCanio), and the works of  Martha McAleer, Anne Franklin and Marilyn Weiss.  As it turns out, literal matters of the heart prevented me from from going and attending the reception.  As I was facing a few very unexpected life detours I got an email from a friend.  “Congratulations on you making the cover of The Independent!”   Yes!  There it is… My definition of Serendipity…

This was a busy social week in the Hamptons.  The always amazing landscape architect on a mission to protect us from “Come Out to Play” Mixed media on canvas by Anahi DeCaniopesticides, Edwina von Gal, had a fundraiser for her fabulous organization PRFCT Earth Project with non other than Deborah Harry as entertainment. There were beautiful horses (and people) wrapping up the The Hampton Classic and art exhibits all over town, including one curated by Pamela Willoughby and Julia Keyes benefiting ProjectMost,  a project near and dear to my heart which focuses on providing needed services for children on the East End. So I must admit it was a big surprise to see my painting on the cover. The timing could not have been better.

And last but not least – William Ris East has been in the art world for 50 years but it is brand new to the North Fork. This is a perfect time to follow the Long Island wine trail on the East and pay them a visit!  The gallery is located next to the Sherwood House Tasting Room.  So stop by to meet really nice people,  view great art and enjoy a glass of wine!

The heart matters had a great outcome and are fortunately behind me but the smile from the cover still remains!  Thanks to the team at Hampton Daze and The Independent, a wonderful source of all things Hamptons, for the smile and the cover!

Benjamin Moore Announces Color of the Year 2016…

Mixed media on canvas - by Anahi DeCanio - ArtyZen Studios

Mixed media on canvas – by Anahi DeCanio – ArtyZen Studios

Benjamin Moore just announced choosing white – Simply White – as color of the year 2016.

BENJAMIN MOORE COLOR OF 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.

ONE DAY - Abstract by Anahi DeCanio

by Anahi DeCanio for ArtyZen Studios

by Anahi DeCanio for ArtyZen Studios

Benjamin Moore used these words as the narrative behind their 2016 color :
crisp white borders…
white-washed walls,
hand-hewn beams…
texture,
striking contrasts,
definition,
layered whites,
diffused light…
ambience…

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)

Anahi DeCanio participates in Long Island Design Show with new abstract artwork

The “for the trade only” show, held at Carlyle on the Green included an exciting array of resources to designers and provided a networking opportunity for those in the design trade in Long Island and NYC.  Various informative workshops were offered, including some for Continuing Education Units.

The interview was not only informative, but lots of fun and peppered with great stories.  The audience, which included several high profile figures in the interior design industry,  was captivated for well over an hour.

LI Pulse Magazine, The Typical Female Magazine, FIOS TV and House Magazine and members of Newsday and other media covered the event.  One lucky attendee will know soon if they won a Hansgrohe Bathroom suite valued at $15K.

The Typical Female Magazine had great coverage of the event.  To see more of their pictures and info from the show, please click on link above. I was thrilled and honored to have “Victorious” – a painting from the Pink Heart Series created to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month – highlighted in the feature.
