We'll miss your familiar face on the Lane this year Don, but we know you'll be back real soon! Hopefully in time to do some plein air painting but especially to do some of those wonderful portraits at sketch group!
Hey maybe we should all come see you and bring you a pencil and sketch pad....
:-) get well soon, Don!

Every year we have artists from all over the country who return again and again!
This event is a well known tradition- don't forget at 4 pm we will hold the annual Raffle- to benefit our student scholarship fund- this year we are happy to have artworks donated by: Rosamaria Eisler, Lester Sprague, Mike Maas, and Muriel Musarra, plus a few more we've accepted along the way- tickets will be available on the 4th from our table located as usual, in front of the Village Hall on Bellport Lane.
Come on down for a nice stroll down to the Bay and back, with lots of great art along the way!

Elaine Thompson, (Wet Paints member), has been slowly making a name for herself in both the art and golf world- she has combined the two and this year looks like its her design that is the logo for the Open- and it's everywhere! Talk about a marketing coup!
Elaine, as many of you may know, has been creating golf art for a few years now and posters that have been created from her paintings have been going like hotcakes.
Its not all a bed of roses though, as Elaine is out at the Open every day, day in day out, rain or shine, signing those posters for fans.
See Newsday, Sunday June 14, page A15
Elaine isn't an SBAA member (yet!) but I mention this because..... she will be at our October meeting with a discussion on the Business of Art.

BAHC, also known as the Brookhaven Arts & Humanities Council, will be moving into Bellport at the Phoenix Gallery- we welcome them into town! This is a great opportunity for artists-- as gallery spaces are shrinking along with the economy! And, one less vacant store on the main street- so it sounds like a win-win!
They will continue to offer fine art as well as fine hand-made jewlery, one of a kind unique pieces as well as sculpture by local artists John DiNaro, Ken Budny, Tom Nagle and Laurence Lee.
There will be an opening reception for the "New Beginnings" Show on Sunday June 28th from 1 - 3 pm
BAHC has been providing services to artists and the community for over 17 years, with outreach programs in local libraries as well.
The gallery is located at 139 S. Country Road in the Village of Bellport.

Dear SBAA members,
The Brookhaven Arts and Humanities Council is pleased to announce a wonderful opportunity! Beginning in July 2009 the Phoenix Gallery of Bellport will be run as a cooperative gallery under the management of the BAHC.
The BAHC plans to maintain an office at the Phoenix Gallery and to keep the gallery open Wednesday through Friday from 11am to 5pm and weekends until 7pm. In addition, the BAHC will hold workshops, classes and musical events at the gallery both during the week and on some weekend evenings.
The Phoenix Gallery will not replace our current gallery at Bald Hill, but we hope that it will become an integral part of our visual arts program.
For further information, please contact the BAHC office at 451-9070.
