The Mamaroneck Artists Guild presents a Spotlight Show of work by 2 diverse artists.
Exhibition Dates: June 26 – July 14, 2018.
Reception: Saturday June 30, 2-5 pm.
Don Sexton’s “Places I Remember”, consists of ink and oil pastel works on paper.
Don lives in New York City and travels widely. His color-filled paintings capture the feelings and memories of a variety of places, including New York City, Paris, Shanghai, Tanglewood, Sydney, Prague, Tokyo, Mexico City, Hyderabad, Seoul, Westchester and his home-state of Connecticut.
He has developed an unusual technique which produces extraordinarily rich and vivid hues in his paintings. Oil pastels are used to provide color. Then, water-based inks are applied to bring out the dramatic colors in the work.

Ira Hara presents “Spirits, Mystics and Dreams”, an exhibit highlighting gouache and mixed media.
Ira is a self-taught artist, born in Chicago, Illinois. He has been drawing, painting and creating three-dimensional constructions from his teenage years to the present.
His art is strongly influenced by the forms, colors and textures found in nature and the cosmos, as well as the ethereal spirits, myths and legends of ancient peoples that surround us. He enjoys chronicling and incorporating the humorous aspects of life into his work. These are the core components of Ira’s inspiration and vision. He is currently working in the medium of pen, ink and gouache to bring these visions to life.
