Light of the Hamptons @ Janet Lehr

Light of the Hamptons: Paintings by David Demers and Haim Mizrahi

June 17,2018:  Uniting David Demers and Haim Mizrahi together, in their Two Man Exhibition, LIGHT OF THE HAMPTONS, at Janet Lehr Fine Arts, has clearly had a very positive effect for both artists. Their creative works are explored with brush-in-hand as they transfer their vivid impulses onto canvas, the great strength of their impulses are the inspiration of the extraordinary Hampton’s light.

David Demers bridges a great leap in the world of American Painting, many painters were effected by the stunning Hampton’s light. 19th – 21st centuries, artists as disparate as Thomas Moran, Childe Hassam, William de Kooning, and Ross Bleckner are Demers forerunners.  Demers received instruction quite broadly before arriving in the Hamptons; first at R.S.D.I., then at the University of Colorado and finally at The Art Students League.

Think Wassily Kandinsky’s expressive colored masses and overlapping lines when you look for Haim Mizrahi’s precursor. 

It was the ‘vocabulary’ of the European Modernists that Mizrahi was trained in, at the Bezalel Academy in Israel.

The exhibition has several exceptional features.  10% of all proceeds will be donated  Hayground and Our Sons & Daughters Schools. Attendees, children and adults, may enjoy sketching and photographing on Sunday afternoons from 2-5pm during the exhibition. We ask that parents remain in attendance during those hours. Refreshments will be served during this time as well as opening night.
