Nov 23 – Dec 15, 2022

Reception: Saturday, Nov 26, 4-6 pm

On November 26th from 4-6 PM, a reception will be held at Canio’s Books for State of Mind: An Exhibition of Small Works curated by artist Jennifer Cross. The exhibition will bring together artworks by East End artists of different generations – the youngest 18, the oldest in her 80s. Done is a variety of media, works define emotional states of being and express diverse points of view – some self-reflective, some political, some transcendent.

The show will include self-portraits by Caren Sturmer, Joseph Cornell Saunders, and Emelia Winter, the latter an angst-driven ink drawing that captures the anxiety of Winter’s final years as a high school student during the age of covid. Jeremy Dennis, a member of the Shinnecock nation, will be represented by a photograph from his Nothing Happened Here series, meant as a bold reminder of the indigenous presence in our communities. Abstractions capturing mood and nuance by Pam Focarino, Roisin Batemen, Lucille Colin, and Christina Schlesinger are included, as well as Sag Harbor artist Michael Butler’s art-filled paintings of an interior, Jennifer Cross’ own work responding to current events, and works addressing various states of being and transformation by Christa Maiwald, Burton Van Deusen, Sue Gussow, Kathryn Szoka, and Stephanie Brody Lederman.

The exhibition remains on view through December 15.

Canio’s Books hours:  Tuesday- Saturday, 10:30-6, Sunday, 12-5, Monday, 10:30-5
