Embracing the goal to enhance and support the rich artistic talent on Long Island, LIM has created a special membership opportunity for visual artists, LIMarts: a collaborative arts group. Designed for artists dedicated to creating a new forum within our cultural community, LIMarts offers space for the exhibition and sale of artwork, varied programming events, lectures and opportunities for social gathering with other artists and the public. For information about becoming an LIMarts members, e-mail Alexandria D’Auria.
Artist of the Month: Angela Stratton
I sought my education in the masters tradition of academic realism at The Reilly League of Artists, Inc. under Cesare Borgia; to include Portrait, Figure, Picture making, Still Life and Landscapes in various mediums and styles with particular emphasis on oil techniques. The masters have a strong impact on my work but I adhere to expressing my own personal presentation of painting. Art is my passion – I continue independent studies through various Workshops and Demonstration Lecture series, as I believe an art education is a lifetime adventure.
Since 1978 I have built an impressive body of work, and exhibit in the tristate area in juried and group shows. A landscape resides in the permanent collection of the Stony Brook University Medical Art Collection, Mather Hospital and additional paintings in private collections in the US, Puerto Rico, England, and Hong Kong. My current affiliations are: Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, Salmagundi Club, American Artists Professional League and Portrait Society of America., to name a few.
As a prize winning artist, my achievements are not limited to painting alone.
I find many rewards teaching drawing and painting to teens and adults.
