The collections by Arin Ross Auctions are replete with new and emerging artists as well as known favorites and never forgotten masters. You will be amazed by opening bids much lower than retail gallery prices with openings as low as $35
The art auction will feature magnificent works of art by over 50 local and nationally recognized artists as well as original works by the children and Veterans associated with the Spirit of Huntington Art Center.
We are so thrilled to announce our summer camp program. We will be running 2 sessions the week of August 20th. For our little ones, we are teaming up with the Congregational Church of Huntington in Centerport. We will be holding camp at their beautiful facilities in Diane’s kindergarten classroom and their huge, shaded, fully equipped outdoor playground. They just replaced all the swings today! Our 4 to 9(ish) year olds will be with us from 9am until 12pm. Then we will be bringing it back to the Center at 1:30 for our older kids, 10 and up. We will run our Artists Come Alive series from 1:30 – 4:30. Look for more information in the coming weeks.
Michael Allen Noeth
A born and bred New Yorker, Michael Allen Noeth skillfully managed to implement his innate compulsion to create true, meaningful art to encompass his great love for all things nautical. Six of his seven years in the U.S. Navy were served at sea – four aboard the USS Wasp.
At age 30 — on 9/11 — Noeth was serving as the director of the graphics office in the Pentagon Naval Command Center, as Draftsman/Illustrator with the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. He was working [off-duty] on the commission awarded to him Naval Art Center. During There years Michael created an extraordinary proliferation of outstanding art depicting diverse activities and scenes.
Beginning to draw before he could talk, Noeth had no formal artistic training until he was a junior in high school. Relying on his mature appearance and attitude his Grandma blatantly lied about his age to assure his acceptance [for evening and Saturday classes] at the world-renowned Art Students League in New York.
His Awesome Respect for the League never diminished during the years he “walked the halls and worked in the studios where Norman Rockwell, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Thomas Hart Benton — everybody who counts in American Art — studied and/or taught before me”. Michael was so honored when – at that early date – his creative expression was judged sufficiently significant for him to be sponsored for membership in the League. At the time he died Michael was already a lifetime member of the League.
Noeth was accepted for advanced study at the Fashion Institute of Technology immediately on the first presentation of his portfolio, as an Illustration/Fine Arts major. For every minute of his four years Michael was totally immersed in every appropriate student activity. He literally devoured every bit of knowledge FIT made Available … for which he returned total dedicated participation. It is significantly impressive the Fashion Institute recognized Michael’s outstanding human qualities [apart from his innate creativity] by the incredibly magnificent – unprecedented – Memorial Service [on October 3, 2001] dedicated to him. They have since created a new perpetual “Michael A. Noeth Award for Outstanding Leadership” for presentation to one so-deserving graduate each year. Upon graduation Michael decided the Navy presented the most productive opportunity to expand his horizons … not merely to “see the world” [three times around] affording enough time to pursue his art … far beyond even his lavish dreams. Navy art – coming to life through Michael’s brushed – blends the schizophrenia of wartime activity with the limitless natural magnificence observed during peaceful cruising.
