In his latest exhibit “Montauk Moments,” artist Eli Wilner captures the essence of Montauk in a series of landscape, nautical and floral paintings. This October, the collection will make its debut at LaMantia Gallery for a limited engagement presentation. Two Gallery receptions with the Artist for the public will be held Friday, October 25th from 6:00-8: 00 p.m. and Saturday, October 26th from 4:00-7: 00 p.m.
“I feel wonderful when I see the beauty of Montauk. I feel even better when I paint it,” says Wilner, a long-time resident of Montauk. “Art is my refuge; and the why is complicated: my art and its color allow me to gesture, to connect, and it’s quite obvious I have no choice but to create.”
Wilner is most known for his work creating fine antique American and European frames. As a specialist in period framing for nearly 40 years, he has completed over 15,000 framing projects for collectors and museums. His gallery is held in high regard by both institutions and private collectors for his expertise, extensive inventory, and superior quality of craftsmanship. This regard and confidence is evidenced by customers such as The White House, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Yale University Art Gallery and many private individuals.
