FEATURED
Double Eyes: Oil on canvas portraits focus on motion and optical illusion
Through October 23
Haven Gallery, 50 Main Street, Northport Village
Canada-based artist Alex Garant’s portraits have always focused on motion and optical illusions, suggesting her sitters are in flux in the corporal form; for the next month, the “Queen of Double Eyes” is showcasing twelve new oil paintings that explore themes of color, form, shape and design. It is her third solo show at Haven Gallery in Northport Village.

A 2001 graduate of Notre-Dame–De-Foy College, just outside Quebec City, Garant decided to truly commit to her passion for arts after suffering a heart attack in 2012. A leader of analog glitch art, she uses patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her work. Represented by galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Australia, Garant’s pieces have also been shown in several museums including the Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in California, the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in Arizona, the Honolulu Museum of Art in Hawaii and the Fullerton Museum Center in California.

Back at Haven Gallery, “Odyssey” takes Garant’s work one step further as the theme and prevalence of motion originating in her characteristic “double eye” portraiture continues to evolve. Odyssey is one of four new exhibits on view at Haven Gallery until October 23. View the entire exhibit here. Other featured artists this month are Gina Matarazzo, from New Jersey, Philippines-based artist Mall, and Ukrainian-based artist Kseniia Boko.

John Lazzaro: A Vanishing New York
Sunday, October 2 through Sunday, October 16
The Firefly Artists, 90 Main Street, Northport
For the first special exhibition in their new space, The Firefly Artists call on author, photographer, documentary filmmaker (and fellow Firefly) John Lazzaro, who draws upon his experiences from documentary filmmaking in order to create a realistic, visual, and thought-provoking dialogue of the macabre. A Vanishing New York: Ruins Across the Empire State (Schiffer, 2022) is a photographic essay documenting the last remaining abandoned sites in the Empire State. New York is riddled with forsaken buildings; each having fascinating histories ravaged by the exploits of modernization. Regardless of the reasons for their abandonment, these structures represent the diverse history of New York until they become inexorably destroyed by time. A book signing will take place on October 15, from 4-8pm.
