OPENING RECEPTION AND AWARD CEREMONY

The Church is thrilled to host Sag Harbor in Focus for its sixth annual celebration of both our village of Sag Harbor and of living on the East End of Long Island, as experienced by the students from Pierson High School. The exhibition will include photographs in eight separate categories including Portraiture, Landscape, Architecture, Still Life, Home and Family, A Sense of Place, People and Activities, and Inside Out. The students’ work was assembled by artist and Pierson High School art teacher Peter Solow and art teacher Liz Cataletto, including work from their Advanced Photography and Photography classes.

 

The opening will be followed by an awards ceremony for the winners of this year’s exhibition. We are honored to have director, cinematographer and photographer, Don Lenzer as the juror for the contest. Lenzer will be choosing one winning photograph from each category, for which $100 will be rewarded. A $1,000 grand prize will go to the photographer whose photography was chosen as the most outstanding body of work submitted for consideration

 

The annual Sag Harbor in Focus exhibition was created six years ago by Eric Fischl and April Gornik, who are also this year’s sponsors along with the Reutershan Educational Trust.  Although the focus is on Sag Harbor, as Fischl has stated, “Art transforms the local into the universal through the lens of the gifted eye.”
