Art League of LI News: "Exhibiting through August 15

The Landscapes and Interiors of William Starkweather

As a perfect summer exhibit, from July 11 to August 15 the Art League of Long Island is pleased to present the landscapes and interiors of William Starkweather (1879 - 1969),
early 20th century American painter, from the collection of Peter Falotico of Northport.
Full of vitality, the thirty-five watercolors and oils on view, painted largely during Starkweather's summer travels to remote locales in Maine and the maritime provinces
of Canada provide a visual diary of his life and show us a thoughtful artist who rejected
the prevalent style of his day to create works that are surprisingly modern to our eyes.
