If you’re in Rockland, Bergen or Westchester Counties consider checking out the new exhibit from abstract artist Tony Seker and photographer Julie Scholz at the Piermont Flywheel Gallery. The show will be from November 22nd until December 8th.
As a young refugee of the Lebanese Civil War, Seker began to express his anti-war sentiment & hope to inspire global unity through colorful abstract expression. His artistic style emerged while painting model war planes with bold colors rather than camouflage, and notably reflected the “action” of his favorite physical comedians/performers, Peter Sellers and Victor Borge.
Seker has won multiple juried awards including “Best in Show” for VITESSE and BAZOOKA JOE, and notably “Artist Choice” (voted by 52 tristate artists) for EYE OF THE TIGER. His art can be found at The Piermont FlyWheel Gallery (Piermont, NY), Art Works Gallery (a fine arts gallery in Cedar City, UT) and at FLAG. Seker resides near NYC and is VP of the local Artists Guild. He previously lived in London and Paris.
Julie began making pictures in 1987 when she studied photography as a Studio Art major at SUNY Oneonta. “I am intrigued by the sometimes intricate and subtle beauty of nature and seek to express my love for them in my work. My recent work includes studies of the intricate and abstract patterns of butterflies. I approach photography with a painterly eye and think of myself less as a photographer and more as a painter.”
The Piermont FlyWheel Gallery is located at 223 Ash Street Piermont, NY 10968.
