Cynthia Grimm's "A Mother's Life" exhibit

The 2009 NYS Decentralization Grant for the Arts project "A Mother's Life" by the Attic's own Cynthia Grimm opens on Saturday, December 5 with a reception from 2-4 p.m. at the South Huntington Public Library, 145 Pidgeon Hill Road, Huntington Station.

As with her 2008 grant project, Grimm chose a group of women to document their journey through nine months of motherhood in photographs. The group met monthly for instruction, assignments, and artistic growth. The exhibit features 20 photos representing their work and their lives as women, leaders, mothers, creators.

The exhibit will run throughout the month of December, 2009

The Huntington Station Paint In continues

As mentioned in The Long-Islander and Newsday, Huntington Station is getting known for its artists.
This Sunday looks be sunny and near 60, so grab your easel, sketch pad, camera, journal, whatever your medium (and don’t forget your artistic friends) and head on down to New York Avenue (set up anywhere between East 19th and Olive Streets) to “let the art be seen.” Huntington Station is home to a vibrant art community, let people know about it!
This is an open invitation, call-to-action for all artists every weekend through spring and summer. Leave your name and number at Pixelstick Gallery (at The Artists in the Attic upstairs in the Yankee Peddler Building at 1038 NY Ave) if you create a piece that you would like to have considered for a juried show at the end of the summer, location to be announced.
The Avenue is our community: love it, embrace it…paint it!

A weekend of Art & Antiques on the Avenue
Start off your weekend with another First Friday event on April 3 from 5-8pm at The Artists in the Attic ( See the work of 12 amazing artists and hear the alt-folk sounds of Compass Rose on their return engagement.
As an added bonus, the antique dealers at Yankee Peddler will be joining the artists in spirit by holding their first “First Saturday Flea Market” on Saturday, April 4 from 9am – 4 pm in their back parking lot... take a break and look for some bargains!
And the finishing stroke of this weekend community trifecta will take place on Sunday, April 5, noon til the light leaves as local artists come out for the Huntington Station “Paint In” all along New York Avenue.

First Huntington Station 'paint in' draws handful

Only a handful of people showed up Sunday for a "paint in" on New York Avenue in Huntington Station, according to organizer Cynthia Grimm, “but I'm hoping as the weather warms up more people will come out.”

Grimm, who suggested the event to counter recent coverage of violence in the area, had announced that the group would be repeating the paint in through the spring and summer and may mount an exhibit of their collective work. Two photos Grimm made are above, titled “Northridge Field” and “Red and Yellow.”

The Huntington Station photographer said she thought the group would apply for a permit to use the parking lot across from the Yankee Peddler for a combination flea market and art show.

Beginning this Sunday, March 22, noon til the light leaves, come on down to New York Avenue for an old fashioned “paint in!”
To help counteract the negative press lately concerning Huntington Station, Cynthia Grimm of The Artists in the Attic is organizing the Huntington Station version of a plein air event. Come with easels, watercolors, oils, sketch pads, journals, whatever your creative medium and set up along New York Avenue to take in the urban landscape. Let the motorists driving through to the village know that there’s more to our little town then bad press and empty lots…let the artists be seen!
Tell your friends, family, anyone who hasn’t given up yet on our Huntington Station. We’re expecting at least a dozen or so folks to come out, the more the merrier. You can even set up in groups of 2 or 3 if you prefer collaboration (just don’t block the sidewalk passage).
We’ll continue all spring and summer and maybe have a nice body of work from you all for an art show at The Artists in the Attic at the end of the summer. If we paint it, they will come…
Art & Antiques REALLY on the Avenue…perfect!

Special thanks to Compass Rose for making our first 2009 First Friday such a success. And for introducing us all to a harp guitar from 1898!

Support the Artists in the Attic and show your flair for fashion with our custom designed T-shirts, just $5! Available at First Friday and every day behind the counter at the main floor register.

Come on upstairs!

The Artists in the Attic....during hibernation

Don't worry, the Spring will yield full portfolios brimming with genius! Stop by in the meantime (Maxine is usually there!) and we'll be reinvigorated in full force with First Fridays again as the Peddler celebrates its 100th anniversary! Did someone say trolley car rides?
Stayed tuned!
