The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum will present a new exhibit, Sea and Sky, featuring the works of Whitney B. Hansen, Paton Miller and Scott Bluedorn, starting Friday, June 22.
The exhibit expresses texture, layering, colors and various mediums and subjects. The beauty is there, sought as deep as the sea and as limitless as the sky. The artists embrace the creativity and highlight these themes in their work."
The original theme was a multidimensional show. Hensen and Miller are more established in their careers than Scott Bluedorn who is only about 30. [The exhibit] shows something more mature as well as newer perspective. We thought the juxtaposition would be a good mix," said Michael Butler, Associate Manager at the Museum.
Hansen, a California native, has been painting professionally for most of her life. Her work spans the spectrum from still life and portraits to sea and landscapes. Her medium of choice is oil and she utilizes the woodcut process, hand painting layers over the wood creating a spectacular final effect. Her paintings have been featured in group and solo shows in New York, Boston, Chappaqua, Santa Barbara, and Paris.
