This past Thursday celebrated the artwork of our talented founder, Erich Preis. The extensive collection of paintings and sculptures created by Erich represent his lifelong journey in which he struggled, and conquered, Autism. Our opening party showcasing Erich’s exhibit marked a beautiful evening full of love, family & friends, and a heartfelt speech by Erich dedicating the show to our beloved departed friend and sculpture teacher, LT Cherokee. Stop in to the art center, at 2 Melville Rd. N, Huntington Station, NY 11746, to experience Erich’s “Images of Storm” Reflection of Autism exhibit while it’s displayed for the next several weeks!
Our five-month long Artist’s Come Alive program, teaching the children of the South Huntington school district, came to an emotional close last week with an imaginative class and art show that we developed in conjunction with the Heckscher Museum. Parents were moved as they eagerly toured the museum, which displayed their children’s favorite pieces of artwork that they had created throughout their time with us. The program and show was wonderful, and we are excited to continuing collaborating with the district as well as the museum! Special thanks to South Huntington’s Dr. Bernardo, Superintendent, and Mr. Centamore, Assistant Superintendent, as well as The Heckscher Museum of Arts’ Michael Schantz, Executive Director and CEO, and Joy Weiner, Director of Education and Public Programs.

With the brisk fall season comes many beautiful colors and inspiring scenes within nature. A painter may be overwhelmed with ideas for their work, but there are many other ways to utilize this time of year as well! A common activity to take part in is carving a pumpkin, which, believe it or not, is certainly an art form. The main purpose for this is to create a fun and frightening design which will then glow from within at night. However, Halloween truly originated from the Day of the Dead, when those who had passed away were honored. Therefore, the true reason for carving a pumpkin and placing a light within it is not just for aesthetics. The pumpkins were meant to welcome deceased loved ones with their images, as well as scare away evil spirits. Believe it or not, the turnip was originally carved and the idea of using a pumpkin came much later!
