January Art Exhibit: Arthur Backstrom

Wednesday, January 2 - Thursday, January 31

January Art Exhibit:  Arthur Backstrom

Our January exhibit features the photography of Arthur Backstrom.  Art is a photographer who was born and raised on Staten Island, the busiest port in the world. He is an ex-merchant seaman and the son of a merchant seaman. As an artist, he naturally gravitates towards ships and the sea. He has been a devoted photographer for the last 17 years, specializing in fine photos from film captured with manual cameras.  His work has been featured at ArtSpace Hartford, Open Studio Hartford, 100 Pearl Street Gallery, and the Staten Island Museum Fence Show.

This exhibit will be on display January 2nd – January 31st.

An artist’s reception open to the public will be held on Saturday, January 12th from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm.  Light refreshments will be served – all are invited to stop in!
