Q/A:Strong-Cuevas “Drawings: Ideas on Paper” led by noted author Jeffrey Sussman

Join us Saturday May 19th at 2 PM for a Q/A with Strong Cuevas, led by noted author Jeffrey Sussman, author of the recently book “Rocky Graziano: Fists, Fame, Fortune”

Published by Abrams books, “Strong Cuevas Drawings: Ideas on Paper” is a lavishly illustrated book of drawings by the celebrated sculptor Strong-Cuevas. The book contains 190 color and black-and-white drawings, spanning a period of 40 years. All the drawings have been thematically arranged and explore recurring themes of Strong-Cuevas’ art, regardless of medium. The book features a foreword by noted art critic, Jan Garden Castro, who has written extensively about Georgia O’Keeffe, Louise Bourgeois, Maya Linn, and numerous others.

Strong-Cuevas says that her work expresses thoughts about universal consciousness, space and time, and inner mediation. Known for her sculptures made from bronze, stainless steel, and aluminum, Strong-Cuevas’ art often portrays the human head and plays with scale. Her drawings are no different, for they express the same themes, but are rarely used as diagrams for her sculpture.

Works by Strong-Cuevas are in major museums and many private collections. Her previous book, also published by Abrams, was a critically acclaimed book of her sculpture, entitled STRONG-CUEVAS SCULPTURE: Premonitions in Retrospect.

Author Talk – Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village

On December 16, 2016, the beloved Sag Harbor Cinema burned down. The 1936 Art Deco Theater may have been the latest in a long line of Sag Harbor movie houses, but it was not the first. In her new book Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village, author and journalist Annette Hinkle pays tribute not only to the recently lost art-house cinema but also to all the movie houses that preceded it. An homage to a century of celluloid on Main Street, the book traces film history from the era of the silents to the Sag Harbor Cinema’s nearly four-decade tenure as the last independent, single screen theater in the Hamptons.
