Herons of Bedford
Photographer and artist, has been captivated by the beauty and grace of the prehistoric looking great blue herons that silently stalk their prey in Beaver Dam River in Katonah. When she came across 22 nesting pairs of great blue herons in the swamp off of Old Post Road near Stone Hill Road she planted herself overlooking the swamp with her telephoto lens in hand. Julie focused on the nests where she found the newborns waiting eagerly for their parents delivering the bounty. This summer you will have the opportunity to see the beauty of these stately birds as she captured them seemingly dancing in flight, feeding their young and standing guard over the next generation of these four-foot-tall birds which will grace out streams and ponds for years to come. Julie prints the images on fine art watercolor paper and canvas using desaturated color and techniques that make the images appear painterly, resembling lithographs.

Jillian Marie Dyson
“The Power of Beauty”
From June 11th to July 6th we had the pleasure to exhibit the works of a very talented New Zealand artist: Jillian Marie Dyson, a passionate marine painter, one who must paint every day before the last of the silvery northern light slips from the sky.
Dyson grew up on a coastal farm in New Zealand’s beautiful Bay of Islands; it was here, in these magnificent shorelines that she developed a lifelong passion for the sea and sky and her desire to become a fine artist. Her Impressionist-style work is described as timeless and it’s reminiscent of Turner and Monet. We brought her European style masterpieces to Katonah and they were enjoyed by our visitors, customers and friends! Thank you all who visited and attended the opening reception and wine tasting!
