Boat Hulls: Photography series by Michele Dragonetti

July-September 24

Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Sunday, noon - 5 p.m. 

Michele Dragonetti lives and works in both Amagansett and Manhattan. Her Boat Hulls series began in the marinas of Montauk where she was drawn to boats in need of repair and refurbishing.  She finds particular appeal in the contrast between the abstract patterns of the painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the overlying evidence of their weather and age, which together create a unique interplay of textures. By focusing her compositions on the triangular patterns of the hulls in a square format, she is able to highlight the essential geometry of the images.  Photos in the ongoing series transform often humble vessels into abstract portraits, celebrating their imperfect appeal. 

Groups by appointment in advance.
Admission: $4 adults / $3 those over 65 / $2 students
