Art in the Pines: Harol Baez
By Out.com Editors
The finest of Fire Island Pines’s guesthouses continues "The Madison Art & Fashion Summer Series" with the work of New York-based photographer Harol Baez.
Over the last five years Baez has shot numerous models on Fire Island utilizing the island's natural sea and landscapes as settings for his vivid and provocative imagery. This exhibition is a tribute to the island's natural beauty, a celebration of color, and the male form. Baez says his experience with the Pines has been a pleasant one of fond memories and great times with friends and family over the years and is thrilled his first exhibit will be on Fire Island. The collection includes images shot on Fire Island, Miami, and Montego Bay.
The launch of the show, which features photographs of strength and power (and more than a few nods to the beauty of the male figure) is a cocktail reception on this Saturday, July 5, 4–7pm, at The Madison (22 Atlantic Walk), and all are welcome. The artist will be in attendance and all works are for sale. The show, in association with The Pines Gallery, will be on display through July 27. RSVP to the event’s Facebook page.
Fire Island visitors who call and mention "Madison Summer Art Series" will get a discount on room reservations at The Madison (631-579-6061).
