Marine Art: Paintings by Richard W. Johnson

Mr. Johnson has been painting for over 40 years. After his retirement from a law enforcement career, he worked on commercial boats, surf clammers, lobster boats and trawlers. This experience gave him an understanding and feeling for the water and how ships move through all types of weather. This knowledge is reflected in Mr. Johnson's art. The exhibit concentrates on sights in and around the waters of Long Island Sound including landscapes, sailing ships, schooners, fishing boats and more. Mr. Johnson is an Official Artist of the United States Coast Guard, a member of the Montauk Artist's Association, as well as a member of The American Marine Artists

In the Glass Case: Models by Ralph Inzalaco


Mr. Inzalaco creates authentic models of historic landmarks. A retired machinist, he worked on plane models all his life, but it was his wife's love of Italy that inspired his new artistic work in balsa wood. On display this month are "The Coliseum," "Palazzo Vecchio," "The Rialto Bridge," and "The Leaning Tower of Pisa."
