February Member’s Meeting, Wednesday February 25th:
South Bay Art Association invites our members to the 125 Gallery in Bellport.
See current works in studio, by artists John Perreault and David Adams.
Artists will be present to explain their work, and journey into the Abstract world of art. 
Lets meet at the Phoenix Gallery (#139 S Country Rd) at 7:15 and we will all walk down to 
the 125 Gallery on the corner of Station Rd.

John Perreault:
Painter, performance artist, poet and art critic John Perreault makes paintings variously with instant coffee, petroleum-coated beach sand, and most recently acrylic.

David Adams:
Using house paint abandoned at construction sites, Adams spins paint from punctured cans hung from specially constructed tripods above found tarps and other reclaimed materials.

This year the Bellport Chamber of Commerce will hold a contest for the 2015 Bellport Festival poster for Bellport Day. All mediums are welcomed but works must be 2 dimensional. No text writing on the poster entry, no smaller than 8 X 10, no larger than  24 X 30. Work will be scaled down or sized up to fit an 18 X 24 format, if chosen. Winning artist will be announced in the Long Island Advance, and will receive 10 printed posters and dinner for two at a Bellport restaurant.

Bellport is known for its quant village,  and for beautiful South Bay waterfront homes, has its own sailing club with private yacht club.
More details to follow.
