On view from December 2 through January 5, 2024. Join us for our opening reception on Saturday, December 2, from 4 to 6 pm.


Angela Fiammetta is a Bedford, NY based artist whose large-scale abstract stitched paintings, a fusion of textile art and painting, command attention. Her work is an ode to the organic-minimalist style, where the boundaries between the canvas and nature seem to dissipate. Fiammetta’s art is a testament to the transformative power of creativity and the boundless depth of human connection. Through her stitched paintings and evocative compositions, she opens a window into a world of wonder, inviting each viewer to find their own unique journey within the tapestry of her artistry. With each brushstroke, Fiammetta’s work encapsulates her experiences and the beauty she discovers in the world around her. Her canvases tell stories of nature’s changing moods, inviting viewers to explore and lose themselves in her rich creations. For more information about Fiammetta, visit

Allison Belolan is a Mamaroneck, NY based mixed-media artist whose layered abstract landscapes crafted with handmade paper and repurposed artwork are both ethereal and tangible. Belolan’s works are a product of her keen observations of the world and her intuitive responses to the materials she employs. With a meticulous eye for detail, Belolan’s art beckons the viewer to approach, to immerse themselves in the subtle variations of edges, textures, and layers, and to uncover the hidden nuances that lie beneath the surface. Her works encourage a moment of pause and reflection, forging a deeper connection between the art and the audience. Belolan’s pieces challenge you to ponder the beauty and complexity of the world we live in and to appreciate the often-overlooked details that surround us. For more information about Belolan, visit
