This event has ended.

After jurying two exhibitions as a guest curator in 2018-19 – at the Silvermine Art Center and the Mamaroneck Artists Guild – owner/director Susan Eley decided to jury one in her own gallery. A Call for Submissions went out requesting art related to the theme of rocks, mountains and cliffs, chosen to celebrate summer and nature.

We were delighted to receive hundreds of works of art from around the world. The final selection is comprised of 63 artworks by 54 artists, 38 of whom have never exhibited at SEFA. The artists hail from the US, Canada and Spain, and will be represented by painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, textile and collage, in materials including oil, acrylic, cardboard, wood and fiber, watercolor, sumi ink, gouache, graphite, brick, soapstone, wood and more.
“ON THE ROCKS” covers a rich array of visual territory—from a realistic oil painting of a rocky coast in Maine, to a fantastic, surrealist mountain range in day glow colors. A

black and white oil painting on wood depicts a roadway, wending gently through a mountain pass. Rocks appear as chunky, geometric abstractions or bold, biomorphic forms. Photographs of landscapes feature a Mayon volcano at the foothills of a Filipino town, a plunging dam in Yellowstone Park and a dramatic monolith in the Italian Dolomites.

The aim of the show is to present an array of visual expressions of what we collectively and individually may experience in the presence of mountains and monoliths—awe, fear, contentment, inspiration, joy, humility and oftentimes peace.
