ART EXHIBITION UPDATE: “SALTY ROOTS”
BY ARTIST: ERIN COLLIER
OPENING RECEPTION w/ ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th 7-9PM
On Saturday, September 15, 2018, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company will host the opening reception for its latest exhibition. Titled “Salty Roots,” the exhibition will showcase the artwork of Erin Collier. A resident of Arlington, Massachusetts, Erin Collier grew up in Sag Harbor, exposed to the beaches and recognizing its importance and formative presence at a young age. Working with pastels, Collier creates lush, vibrant scenes depicting the same beaches from her youth. The subjects of her works primarily involve her two daughters experiencing the same beaches and forming the same memories of the beach as she did, revisiting her fond memories through the eyes of her children.
Through this, Collier’s artwork is tinged with an element of nostalgia, a fond looking back and reverence for the past and the place where so many memories were made and so many problems were resolved. What Collier is interested in is what the ocean can teach you. For Collier, the beach is a place of self-discovery. Like so many, the beach is a place of calmness and perspective, where problems are diminished with each crashing wave. We see this in her work, which remind us of the beach’s role in our lives, especially in our lives on the East End.
“Salty Roots” opens at Greenport Harbor Brewing Company on Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 7 to 9 pm.
The opening reception will be held at their location at 234 Carpenter Street in downtown Greenport.
