June Greenspan, People and Places
June Greenspan, an award-winning photographer specializing in portrait imagery, will be featured at Les Beaux Arts Gallery opening Sunday, December 3, and running through January 17, 2018. Greenspan ran a Portrait Photography studio in Armonk for many years but now she devotes her time to traveling and pursuing her fine art work. Her experiences with all the different cultures and people she has met, combine to make the images she creates. In her own words, she discusses her artistic process: "My images are born of several photographs. I record what I see all around me and try to capture the mood, color and light of the scenes that grab me. My goal is to tell a story after recording many photos from an experience as I wander. I am an artist of the digital age but have a longing to translate my imagery in more traditional style as though crafted from an earlier age."
Joseph Fama, The Inner Soul-Capturing Nature's Wonders
A nature lover and romantic landscape artist, Joseph Fama will be featured at Les Beaux Arts Gallery to complement the mesmerizing colors of the New England autumn.
The exhibit runs through Thursday, November 30.
Fama is master of natural light. "I am a visual translator expressing my feelings with color and brush strokes to move someone's heart,” he explains. He always starts with plein air color sketches and completes his oil painting in his studio. Like a hunter, he is on the lookout for picturesque scenes and he says that it is a challenge to capture nature with all its wondrous colors and subtleties of shade-dark and light. Fama attended Pratt Institute, School of Visual Arts, and is a member of the American Artist Professional League and Oil Painters of America. He exhibits extensively throughout the nation and he presently conducts private group art lessons.
