Steve Englebright, Assemblyman, environmentalist, and professor, is the featured speaker at the Reboli Center for Art and History’s Third Friday event to be held Friday, November 17, from 6 – 8 PM. Mr. Englebright is one of the most amazing friends of the Reboli Center. Through his efforts, significant funding for the purchase of the Reboli Center was obtained. On October 31, the purchase of 64 Main Street was completed and this Third Friday event celebrates the purchase and Assemblyman Englebright. His visions for the community are the reasons why so much of the Three Village historical structures and areas are preserved.
His talk discusses the inspiration for the creative process. Is whatever we want to create in art first found in nature? Long Island, and especially our North Shore Region, has been a favorite of artists for more than 150 years. The natural landscapes, structures, implements, and people that have contributed to the history and recorded the beauty of our area include such great artists as William Sidney Mount and Joseph Reboli. This will be a discussion of the natural places and processes that underpin the indelible images of these and other of our local artists.
