About the artists:

An award-winning, freelance artist based on Long Island, Jim Sabiston began his visual arts career as a painter, but with the advent of the digital camera, he left painting behind and committed himself to the art of photography. His work executes a marriage of photography and painting mediums into highly unique, print-oriented series sets. Recent work has been oriented towards East End and Long Island subjects. Jim’s photographs have received awards from National Geographic Explorer magazine, the Adirondack Mountain Club, the Islip Arts Council, the Sayville Chamber of Commerce, the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Gallery North, and most recently, East End Arts. His work has been published in various books, magazines, and is part of many private collections.

Mike McLaughlin is a research analyst by trade who discovered the creative side of his brain after finding the North Fork of Long Island. A desire to capture and share the beauty of the Long Island Sound and the adjacent farmland is the reason he began taking pictures. He favors the hues and tones of twilight and many of his urban tableaus are captured “in the gloaming” or at night. His work has been featured in solo and group shows across the East End of Long Island and has won numerous awards including First Place in East End Arts Second Annual National Show, and the Catherine and Theo Hios Landscape Award at Guild Hall.
