Family Art Exhibit: Pointillism [May 3 – 28]

This art exhibition was inspired by Georges Seurat and the Pointillist movement. Georges Seurat (1859 – 1891) was a French Neo-Impressionist artist from the city of Paris. He, along with his friend Paul Signac (1863 – 1935), started their own art movement called Pointillism in the 1880s.

Seurat and Signac loved colored theory and believed that instead of blending their paints together on a canvas, they could simply apply dots of contrasting colors close together to create different shapes, leaving the audience to imagine these colors mixing together in their minds to create an assortment of tones, highlights, and shadows. The most famous Pointillist painting is Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. It took him over two years to create this large painting, which shows people enjoying a sunny day in a Parian park. In this work, Seurat used yellow and green dots placed closely together to show the grass and leaves as if it was directly exposed to sunlight, and blue and green dots placed closely together to suggest cast shadows.

The artwork on display were made by Patchogue-Medford families using corks and their imagination. We would like to thank the families for sharing their masterpieces with us.
