Locust Valley’s Christine D’Addario Proudly Presents “SEESCAPES,” a Fine Art Exhibit at The Adler Gallery
I was intrigued by D’Addario’s stories of how art has always been a driving force and her primary method of communication. From her time as the Art Director for D’Addario and Co. Inc. – the legendary Long Island music accessories company – to currently living out her dream of being a fine artist, D’Addario creates visual imagery to fulfill her personal needs & to touch upon the needs of our society and local community. D’Addario’s ability to strike this balance is one quality that contributes to her talent.
She also shared how life today can be challenging when raising a young family. “There are more distractions and stresses now than there have possibly ever been in the past. It is difficult finding ones place as a human in the golden age of technology.” Finding balance is a primary goal for D’Addario: she creates and shares her work for her personal benefit and for that of the viewer.
D’Addario went on to explain that she turns to the sea for inspiration, feeling it “provides a source of renewal and power.” She visits often with her family to recharge in the Hamptons and locally on the North Shore. Moments near the shore provide the opportunity to observe and record her experiences so that D’Addario’s studies can bring greater feeling to her largescale masterpieces.
Her works are meant to counter balance the stress of everyday life by triggering positive feelings from within. D’Addario’s collection is a feast for the eyes with illuminating skies and golden sands. Both vibrant and calming, her works pull you in and make you feel as though you are standing right at the shore – instantly giving the viewer a much needed escape from everyday life.
D’Addario’s work is on display in The Adler Gallery, located in the Port Washington Public Library, for the month of June. Viewing her exhibit is the perfect way to kick off the summer season or to hold onto the feeling all year long.
