About the Exhibition:
Currently raging on the internet, "Steampunk" is quickly becoming one of the most unique & powerful new styles- now influencing the disciplines of Art, Design, Architecture, Fashion & Technology.

Jackie Dowling + Jason Green @ LABL

LABL presents Jacqueline Dowling & Jason Green of Arts 4
August 15 – August 28, 2008
Opening Reception Friday, August 15, 6 – 8 p.m.

78 Main Street
Sag Harbor, NY
(under Java Nation)

In accordance with their philosophy of arts advocacy and enthusiasm for the creative processes, Arts 4 Collective has teamed up LABL, a street fashion boutique, new to the East End fashion scene. LABL has already hosted Exhibitions of Arts 4 since their Grand Opening, and this weekend will will display the works of two of the Collective's very talented and unique individuals, Jacqueline Dowling and Jason Green.

Jason Green has been shooting photos for over 15 years. Recently, he stumbled upon a collection of photos from his grandfather, Allen R. Rosenberg, taken throughout the years between 1918 and 1950. With over 600 photos ranging in medium format, to a larger 4.3 inch to 5.3 inch negative which no longer exists, Jason has been given the opportunity to enlarge these photos, archive them, and show them to the public for the first time. This series of photos at LABL is just a scratch on the surface of Mr. Rosenberg's work. Jason has chosen these photos to best fit the atmosphere of an Urban clothing store targeting a younger crowd. Many are of friends and family and sometimes just strangers whom Mr. Rosenberg came across. As viewers will see, Mr. Rosenberg boasted a style of capturing the fashion and usually un-candid portrait of war-time and post war-time America.
Jacqueline M. Dowling is a recent graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she studied film and finished with her award-winning experimental film "Girl in a Wedding Dress". Her other focus , which will be displayed at the exhibit, is photomanipulation. She captures patterns, textures, and surfaces of decaying urban environments and uses them as her canvas to create surreal, dark underworlds that explore the human psyche. She is currently working hard on her art and various jobs to support a future trip to the Far East in search of new textures and inspiring experiences.
An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, August 15th from 6 – 8 p.m. at LABL 78 Main St. (under Java Nation), Sag Harbor, NY. Frozen treats and cold beverages will be served. The community is invited to check out their newest family business LABL, as well as view two particularly skilled, emerging artists whose complimentary media creates an exciting atmosphere. Come out and support local Art!

The Rectangle: A Herbie Fletcher Exhibition

August 9 - August 27, 2008
Opening Reception August 9th, 5 - 8 P.M.

Collette Gallery
2546 Montauk Hwy
Bridgehampton, New York

Curated by our friend Tripoli Patterson

There will be music courtesy of the great mastermind Max Barbaria, goody bags from Oakley, refreshments and good people.
Hope to see you all there.

After exhibiting last August in a well received group show produced by his friend, curator Tripoli Patterson, at Collette’s Antique Barn, in Southampton, Herbie Fletcher returns to the Hamptons this week to exhibit recent works in a solo show entitled, The Rectangle: A Herbie Fletcher Exhibition. Curator Tripoli Patterson’s new Bridgehampton location, Collette Gallery of Bridgehampton, located just behind the old Bull’s Head Inn on Montauk Hwy, is a perfect spot to showcase Mr. Fletcher’s exciting title piece.

Being the creative man that he is, Herbie has a way of seeing art in everything and using what is at hand to create his masterpieces. A Pipeline veteran and a true innovator, Herbie Fletcher, known by all surfers, is like a father to many North Shore surf heroes of today. When asked for their broken boards by the surf legend, local Pipeliners such as three-time world champion, Andy Irons, international superstar Bruce Irons, long board champion Bonga Perkins, and Herbie’s son, Nathan Fletcher, happily complied. Herbie uses them to create dramatic and energized sculptures, which he calls, “Rectangles.”

Also on exhibit, will be some of Mr. Fletcher’s large, resined photographs, printed on canvas. Combining important aspects of his life — documentation and shaping surfboards — Herbie brings forth a beauty of his own making that demonstrates his undeniable desire to create.

The show’s opening reception will be on Saturday, August 9th, from 5 to 8 pm at The Collette Gallery of Bridgehampton, 2546 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton, NY, 11932. The show will be on exhibit through August 25th, 2008, and will be open to the public for viewing from 10 am- 6 pm, seven days a week.

On the night of the opening, Saturday, August 9th, One Ocean, a restaurant located at 1 Ocean Road, in Bridgehampton, will be hosting a prix fixe dinner and drink specials for the artist and friends until eleven pm. All are welcome to come and meet the Herbie. For more information, email
