Art lovers and a number of local artists poured into Ashawagh Hall in Springs Saturday evening for the opening reception for "Objects," a two-day, two-man show put on by artists Oliver Peterson, of Water Mill, and Ray Colleran, of Sag Harbor.
Dubbed "Objects," the show explores the artists' interpretations of art as fetish. Paintings, sculptures and even trading cards are on display at the show, which will is the duo's second exhibition at the historic hall, after "Burlap and Book Pages" in 2006.
Colleran, a self-taught artist, has been painting for more than 20 years, with much of his work focusing on the military-industrial complex. His art is displayed on vintage book pages, drawn and collaged over with images, sketches and shapes.
Peterson received a master's degree in fine arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He finds inspiration in pop culture, the occult, graffiti and more, and has covered art and other topics for Patch sites on the South Fork.
The last chance to see the show is between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday.
