Long Island is rich with artists whose creativity was inspired here. Little did South Shore photographer Holly Gordon know when she facebooked North Shore watercolor painter, Ward Hooper, that creative sparks would ignite into a magical collaboration and friendship. The Brush/Lens Project is a contemporary union of two artists. Ward’s on sight paintings and Holly’s painterly images of the same locations give the viewer a unique opportunity to see side-by-side creative interpretations of the same subject…and along the way they discovered that many of their locations for inspiration were rooted in the fertile ground of Arthur Dove and Helen Torr, celebrated early American abstract artists who lived and worked on the North Shore of Long Island 75 years ago.
