Art Beat: Bronze bust and print show

07/19/2011 4:39 PM |

• What does a 20-inch bronze bust of a woman peeking from behind a veil have to do with Eastern Long Island Hospital? The sculpture, “Masquerade” by Peggy Mach of Aquebogue, will be auctioned live during the hospital’s 2011 Gala to benefit the emergency department on Saturday, Aug. 13, at McCall Vineyard and Preserve in Cutchogue. “Masquerade,” which Ms. Mach cast using the ancient lost wax method, can be seen at the Terrence Joyce Gallery in Greenport, where silent bids, starting at $3,000, may be placed. Bids will be accepted through Aug. 11 by mail or by email at [email protected]
For gala information, visit or call 477-5164.

The memorial fund was created nine years ago by Friends of Riverhead Free Library in memory of Mr. Sisson, who played a big part in the development of the library’s Piano Plus Concert Series.
