ARTSI celebrates its 10th birthday this year.
The Artists of Shelter Island group celebrates its 10-year anniversary with its annual open studio tour on Aug. 17 and 18, from noon to 5 p.m. Sixteen local artists of various disciplines and styles will welcome visitors to their studios and show their latest works.
‘Washington Pig,’ a 1995 digital work by Roz Dimon. She finds the piece strangely propitious given the current political climate. ‘Look for the words “For Sale,” in Washington’s eyes,’ advised Ms. Dimon. ‘Like many of my works, it has a hopefulness buried deep within what is both a critique and a celebration of America.’ (Image courtesy of the artist).
Shelter Island resident Roz Dimon, an artist who has been experimenting with digital media for over 30 years, is just back from participating in an international symposium in Tokyo. This summer, she will be showing her work at several East End venues, including the Montauk Library Gallery on the South Fork and The South Street Gallery in Greenport. (more…)
