The Rosalie Dimon Gallery, located on the 2nd Floor of the Jamesport Manor Inn, hosts the works of local artist members of the East End Arts Council (EEAC).  Quarterly, gallery exhibits are selected and displayed by the EEAC.  An Artists' Reception is also held at each exhibit change on a Sunday afternoon following the change in exhibits.  The public is welcome into the Jamesport Manor Inn to enjoy complimentary local wine and cheese and to meet the artists.  Admission is free. 

Beginning on Friday, May 2, the works of East End Council members Anahi DeCanio and Michael Maas will be on display.

A reception will be held on Sunday, June 1, from 3PM to 5PM at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery, where the public will have the opportunity to meet the artists.  Immediately following the reception, the Jamesport Manor Inn will offer an Artists' Reception 3 Course Prix Fixe from 4:30PM through 6:30PM, at a cost of $29 per person.  Visit jamesportmanor.com Events page to view a typical prix fixe menu.

Known for skillfully excavating earlier layers to the surface of her highly textured, luminously colored large acrylic paintings, Anahi DeCanio's art remains as compelling at close range as it is at a distance. Her masterful alternating of opaque and transparent pigments add to the rich complexity of what may seem at first glance a simple abstract. Anahi DeCanio is a multi-disciplinary artist in mixed media, photography, installations, collage, and assemblage. Her work is part of private and corporate collections in the United States, Europe and Latin America. She has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibits across the United States and Europe and has won several awards in national juried competitions. Her work has been published in many publications, including TIME, and is part of several TV and motion picture productions. Venues where her work has been featured include Boca Raton Museum, Palm Beach International Airport, Art Basel Miami and Guild Hall East Hampton.

Printmaker Michael Georg Maas has spent most of his life on Long Island. He descends from some of the very earliest Europeans to settle on the East End as well as German immigrants who arrived at the end of the 19th century. This could be why he is attracted to fine traditional drawing and printmaking techniques as well as the rawmess of the German Expressionists. Having received his Bachelor of Science from Cornell University in 1972, he moved to New York City where he studied at the Art Students League and the National Academy School of Fine Arts. He later enrolled at Pratt Institute where he studied with noted Abstract Expressionist Sculptor, Calvin Albert, eventually receiving the Master of Fine Arts degree (with distinction). Returning to Long Island, his work has been exhibited in many galleries and libraries, as well as Briarcliffe College. The recipient of many awards in several media, he continues to develop his printmaking skills, navigating between realism and abstraction. Drawing provides the ultimate channel through which these two disparate styles might collide, resulting in work that is seldom easily classified.

The Rosalie Dimon Gallery is open to the public during our regular business hours for the duration of the display.  Lunch and Dinner service Thursday through Sunday, 12 noon through 10pm.
