Young Artists From Studio 455 Exhibit Their Drawings and Watercolors On Display Around Town Offices

Budding local artists will have their work on display throughout the town of Smithtown’s various office buildings. Students under the tutelage of local artist, Arline Goldstein of Studio 455 chose historic architecture in the hamlet of St James as the inspiration for each interpretation. The artwork will be displayed at Town Hall, the Planning Department, Highway and Parks Department buildings.

“This is a great alliance, showcasing young and aspiring local talent along the walls of our many Town offices which highlight the historic buildings of their home hamlet. I commend Ms. Goldstein for her continuous effort to bring the fine arts a home here in Smithtown and believe that our residents will enjoy the work when they visit.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim

The exhibiting artists are: Carmela Amorosa, Harold Castrova, Arline Goldstein, Mary Ann Hart, Sunhee Kim and Diana Weil.
The historical art exhibit is intended to be enjoyed by the Township, so that residents may appreciate and celebrate a sampling of the history of the town we live in.

“I’ve been working with most of these artists since I opened up the studio on Lake Avenue two years ago, and their achievement has been amazing. I am so thrilled that Town Hall was so impressed by their work that they asked us to exhibit. The artists are so thrilled, and so is the teacher. This is a great reward for me.” - Arline Goldstein, Studio 455

The historic St. James Railroad Station (built in 1843 and went into service in 1873) has always impressed these artists. It’s Victorian charm and details made for the ideal choice as the subject for a rendering.

The St. James Firehouse (erected in 1922 and donated to the St James volunteer firefighters By Mr. Charles Butler) was the second historic building chosen by the artists for both its colonial revival charm and endearing significance to our community.

The artists and Mentor agreed that there will be more artwork to come celebrating the rich history of Smithtown.
