Anahi DeCanio: is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist whose artwork includes mixed media, collage, assemblage and installation. Her work is part of private and corporate collections worldwide. Winning numerous awards in national juried competitions for art and product design, Anahi has participated in group and solo exhibits across the US in several notable venues and museums. Her work has been published in a number of publications, including TIME. Anahi´s artwork has been used in several TV and motion picture productions.
Lori Horowitz: Lori Horowitz is multifaceted artist and life–long supporter of the arts through teaching, arts advisory positions, working as an exhibiting artist here and abroad .She is a union scenic artist and set designer for film, TV and theater. Ms. Horowitz is currently, a curator/director of “Studio 5404,” an artists´ space, a non-profit cultural arts organization on the South Nassau /Suffolk border. Her current series, “Burned into Memory”, is a study of personalities and environments. Sculptural images digest the posture of individuals while faces reflect their stories. In her process, “Painting with Fire”, images are burned into copper screening creating haunting shadows, translucent images and reflective imagery.
Kelynn Z. Alder: is featured in Cynthia Maris Dantzic´s book: “100 New York Painters” is an accomplished artist whose portraits have been commissioned by such notable publications as The New Yorker, as well as many private collectors. Self-defined as a “Visual Essayist with a wanderlust” Kelynn is recognized internationally for her portraits of Australian Aboriginal elders and the Indigenous of the Mexican Rainforest along with Coney Island sideshow performers.
Olga Armand–Ugon: is a well- known Uruguayan artist who assembles fragile materials, gluing, composing with them, and running a line of certain character along the stains, generating relationships and a dialogue between spaces, stains, textures, and lines. Her intentionally unfinished faces awaken the imagination, inviting the viewer to join in the emotional experience of their inner world or to complete it with their own. Olga has exhibited widely in group and solo shows including a recent exhibit at the Consulate General of Uruguay in New York City.
Neil Leinwohl: In 1966 I left a Fine Arts Scholarship at the School Of Visual Arts and enlisted in the Army to be a photographer. Five months later I found myself in Viet Nam armed with a Leica M3 and a couple of Nikons. I create art on the computer, narratives built with photographs and graphics I´ve manipulated. I also work with acrylics and oil paint sticks. Since 1970, I´ve worked in advertising, as a writer, art director and creative director. I now work on my art full-time. My art is about personal mythology, both real and conjured and the unreliable nature of memory. I create art on the computer, narratives built with photographs and graphics I´ve manipulated.
Aurelio Torres: Born in Montevideo, Uruguay to a family of artists, Aurelio was raised in New York City. His father, Horacio Torres, was an accomplished classically trained artist. His artistic training was in Barcelona, Spain, where he studied for several years with his uncle Augusto Torres. Aurelio´s grandfather, was the acclaimed Modernist Master Joaquin Torres–Garcia. Aurelio´s travels have inspired him to create much of his work in natural outdoor settings. His aesthetic sensibility is one of essential simplicity and natural, uncontrived beauty.

Art Scholarship for Combat Veterans at Art League of Long Island
November 11 through December 11, 2017
The Art League of Long Island is pleased to announce an art scholarship sponsored by Woodbury-based law firm Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, LLP. The Joseph J. Fenty, Jr. Memorial Scholarship will award two returning combat veterans, currently residing or originally from Long Island, with a formal art education at the Art League´s visual arts center in Dix Hills.
As supporters of the men and women serving in the armed forces, Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro partners were touched by Art League of Long Island Executive Director - and Gold Star Mom - Charlee Miller´s loving remembrance of her son Joe Fenty. As an Airborne Ranger & Commander of 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division, Lt. Colonel Fenty was a brother and mentor to the soldiers he commanded. On May 5, 2006, he and nine soldiers were killed while serving in the Kunar province in Afghanistan when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter crashed during combat operations. “I am grateful for Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro´s gift to our heroes returning from combat, and for honoring the memory of my dear son Joe”, said Miller.
In life he was a loving husband of Kristin, his wife of 20 years. Joe became a dad for the first time in April 2006, never having had the opportunity to hold little Lauren Olivia in his arms. After earning a degree in business management he was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant from UNCC Charlotte, and in the ensuing years he earned his masters in education from Troy State University. An elite athlete, he was a marathon-runner, an ultra-marathon runner, a cross-country skier, mountain biker, and kayaker. He also was a proud supporter of the arts and recognized how it nurtured the mind and the soul.
Returning combat veterans are invited to apply for the scholarship, two of whom will be selected to receive a scholarship. Nominations can be made by downloading an entry form from http://sskblaw.com/about-us/charities/fentyscholarship/ (or send an email to: Fentyscholarship@salsack.com). Veterans can nominate themselves or have someone nominate them. Entries will be accepted from November 11 through December 11.
The Art League of Long Island is a not-for-profit visual arts organization offering classes and workshops for children and adults, from beginner to advanced levels. The Jeanie Tengelsen art gallery hosts a dozen exhibits per year, featuring contemporary works by many local artists.
