Sag Harbor, NY (PRWEB) October 10, 2014
Penelope Moore, of Saunders & Associates, is pleased to invite the public to a Celebration of Historic Shelter Island Homes, to be held at The Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor on Saturday October 11, 2014 from 12pm to 2:00pm. Coffee and refreshments will be served.
“Shelter Island has historic homes on the real estate market right now, each with a story to tell and a special place in our Island’s history”, Moore said. “It seems fitting to introduce paintings, vintage photographs and artifacts that artists have created over the years memorializing these properties at the Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor.”
"I thought that showing old paintings and photos of these fine artists retreats on shelter Island are a perfect fit for the Grenning Gallery devotees," said Laura Grenning when she planned this exhibition.
While the paintings are only for display, the properties are indeed for sale, and Penelope Moore will be there to answer any questions. The Grenning Gallery, located at 17 Washington Street in Sag Harbor, NY has been a vital member of the Sag Harbor Community since 1998. Dedicated to the revival of classical art, the gallery, owned by Laura Grenning, showcases artists whose works utilize traditional methods created by the great masters. From color to composition, featured artists resurrect classical techniques in a contemporary fashion.
A very fine early 19th century painting by Shelter Island's Walter Cole Brigham (died 1870) depicting The Duvall Homestead at 140 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island will be exhibited. The Homestead, on 2.7 acres, which includes an original wing dating to before the American Revolution has water views to historic Sylvester Manor, Shelter Island’s first plantation. The details of this property will be available at the reception. Vintage photos of the 1880’s farmhouse formerly “The Harbor Inn," owned by Nik Cohn and Michaela Muntean, will also be on display. Ms. Muntean will be present at the event.
Cohn is a British journalist, thought by many to be the “father of rock criticism." He also wrote the source material for “Saturday Night Fever." Muntean is an author who worked with Jim Henson and The Muppets, and has written over 65 Sesame Street children’s books.
