Featured artist like Scott Grimando, Jeff Lipsky and Sarah Baecher were standouts. Mr. Grimando was the only artist not doing live work but who's two pieces stood out for it's treatment of the female figure. Ms. Beacher a muralist, painted fish with faces of powerful figures, for example one was of Steve Jobs. On the other end of the spectrum was Mr. Likpsky who's live action piece seem to be taking the form of chaos in Africa. But, I'm no art enthusiast so I could be way off and simply swayed by the words Congo that were painted in his piece. Every artist that was either doing live work or presenting pieces was very open and willing to discuss their art. It was all fantastic.
If I have to touch on one drawback it would be that the art on the walls weren't labeled. Artist work very long and very hard on their craft. As such, they should be recognized for their contributions. The fact that none of the pieces had names, contact info or titles was pretty disappointing. I noticed that some artist slipped their card in the frame of their work in order for guests to learn more. Definitely a drawback but not a hindrance to the success of the event. Launchpad said this event was a welcome to Spring and that it was. They reminded us of the great artistry that Huntington and Long Island as a whole not only has to offer but it's capability of drawing in artists from around the country. If tonight's Art Bytes: Where Art Meets Technology was any indication, hold on folks, this is a gonna be a creative 2015.
