Summertime Salon: Exhibition features the works of Robin Rice Gallery's artists
Lynda Churilla, Wil East Hampton, NY 2013.
NEW YORK, NY.- The Robin Rice Gallery presents the annual Summertime Salon, a photographic exhibition featuring the works of the gallery artists. The show will run through September 7, 2014.

Every year, the gallery owner curates the show to best exemplify the 56 exhibited artists' strengths and aesthetics, remaining cohesively linked by Robin's extensive knowledge of her artists and of photography. "This is my favorite exhibit, even though it takes months to curate and a week to install," says Robin. "It is my curatorial showcase." From floor to ceiling, the walls of the gallery rooms are a mosaic of nearly a hundred photographs, their various sizes, color schemes and subject matter expertly laid out to fit together like the pieces of an eclectic puzzle.

This year's invitational image, "Beach Samba" by Patricia Heal, is a portrait of a woman in a large, orange-red sunhat, whose downward gaze obscures her face entirely. Blurring the line between photography and painting, the color palette and uniquely large grain pattern of the photograph is reminiscent of Georges Seurat's pointillism technique, a result of Heal's signature in-camera developing technique.

One of the most exciting parts of the summertime salon is the introduction of new artists and of new work by existing artists. One such piece, "Cloud Horse" by Benjamin Heller, depicts a horse powerfully rearing its head into the sky above, its dark mane propelled by its movement against the wind. The large, white markings on the horsehide emulate the clouds in the backdrop, while the photographer's angle creates the illusion of life in the man-made horse.

Suspended from the gallery ceiling are two surfboards displaying images by artist Steve Miller, whose current work is an expansion of his previous solo show depicting various objects under an x-ray machine. The usable, hand-made surfboards display silk-screens and digital prints of the skeletal structures of Brazilian wildlife; the two surfboards used in the summertime salon display an iguana and an alligator, respectively.
