August 2010 ART EXHIBIT

Paintings by Richard Webber
August 1 to 31
Mr. Webber, an artist for over 40 years and the recipient of numerous awards, will show a wide variety of his work, many not seen for over 20 years. Mr. Webber is a long time resident of Long Island and an avid fisherman for many years. Some of his paintings reflect an abstract vision of water, color and imagination. "I want to leave more than colorful paint in my pictures" explains Mr. Webber.

In The Glass Case:

On display are WW II items of the Allied Forces from the collection of Gene Reynolds. A former Marine, Mr. Reynolds comes from a military family; his uncle and namesake died in the war. His interest in history intensified after researching the circumstances of the death of his uncle. Many of the displayed items were donated to him by veterans in the hope of remembering their suffering and sacrifices.
