Artist reception December 1st from 2:30 to 4:30. All are welcome.
Jonathan Pearlman has a long history in the arts. He has produced numerous documentary films, created animations of political cartoons for broadcast television, written screenplays and is the author of the novel “Two to Tango” (Simon & Schuster). In the summer of 2012 he had his second one-man sculpture exhibit at the Water Mill Museum and was the sole juror for the East End Arts Gallery “Found Objects” show. Jonathan’s art is included in several private collections on Long island.
His sculptures are an extension of his eclectic and whimsical view of the world we inhabit. He has always been interested in what lies beneath the surface and in his sculptures he transforms everyday objects into a new, imaginative form. Whether it’s wheels, brushes or shoes, his goal is that the viewer of the final piece will discover the intrinsic beauty that exists even in the most mundane objects.
Although he has no formal training in art, he was influenced by his life-long friendship with Swiss illustrator and sculptor Paul Degen. Jonathan sculpts and writes in his studio in East Quogue, New York. His exhibit will be on display from December 1 to January 2.
Gallery committee members, Cristina Kepner, Lucinda Morrisey and Judy McDermott, are co-chairs of this exhibit.
