MORE ABOUT THE EXHIBITORS:
Having grown up spending weekends and summers in Quogue, Brooks Crowe has a longstanding connection to the surrounding area. He recently took up photography as a hobby and tries to capture intriguing and captivating scenes both big and small. While it can be easy to see the beauty of a picturesque sunset, a new perspective can create a scene that would otherwise be easily overlooked. During his free time while finishing medical school, he is constantly looking for new and inspiring locations or settings to capture the unique beauty of the East End, New York City, and beyond.
Pam Edel is a folk artist based in Manhattan and Remsenburg. The majority of her work is acrylic painted on found and recycled objects. The medium, the local landscapes, friends and family help inspire and define her finished products.
MARILYN DICARLO - AMES
Marilyn took her first photography courses at The School of Visual Arts in 1987 and began showing her work publicly in 1994. She continues to exhibit her work regularly on the East End and has won awards and accolades for her images. In Marilyn’s words: “Photography has personally evolved into a meditation; when I am behind the lens I feel very present. I love to capture and record life's magic. I am passionate about my work and hope that when people view my images they are able to translate these visual perceptions into something intimate and relevant to their own lives.”
Melinda Novak considers herself a Maker. Working with her hands and making something from nothing is what she enjoys most, focusing on variations which represent individuality. Melinda’s enthusiasm for fiber arts started at an East End Arts Council class taught by Justine Moore, which led her to study with Anna Gunnarsdottir from Iceland and Leslie Hansard from New Zealand. Her skills include soap making, Ceramics, wet and nuno felting, and oil painting. Her works have been exhibited in shows locally. Currently, Melinda is making wearable felt scarves. Each scarf is one of a kind and celebrates originality. Visit more of her work at www.facebook.com/melindanovakhandcrafted.

Ellen is a member of the Pastel Society of America, The American Artists Professional League, the Northern Westchester Artists Guild and the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, with whom she exhibited in Tarrytown last fall. She will be showing landscapes painted in oil or pastel at her Art Remsenburg show this summer. When she works plein air, she usually starts out with a watercolor underpainting, and finishes up in pastel. In the artist’s words: "I have always been inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape, and I want to capture the simultaneous feelings of awe and serenity I experience as I traverse it. I want to savor these feelings beyond the actual experience and try to relive and share them in my paintings". See more of Ellen’s work on her web site at landscapesbyludwig.format.com.
Andrea has been photographing landscapes for many years. Having recently moved to Remsenburg from Westchester County, she was inspired by the natural beauty of her new hometown, and will be exhibiting prints from her series “Autumn in Remsenburg.” Andrea is currently a student at the International Center for Photography in NYC. In the artist’s words, “My love of photography is tied to my passion for travel. Experiencing new cultures, new landscapes and new faces delights all the senses, but is especially, for me, a journey of visual discovery. Every new environment provides me with an opportunity to capture the vast wonder of our world through the lens of my camera.
