With galleries in New York City shutting their doors, partnering up or capitulating to the art fair epidemic, gallery-goers are recommended to satisfy their art jones in venues elsewhere. Upon a recent jaunt to the North Fork of Long Island, I came across Alex Ferrone Gallery, an exhibition space dedicated exclusively to photography.

Unostentatious and intimate, Ferrone is currently displaying a show juried by Glynis Berry–architect, dealer and former supervisor of “traffic calming” (!) for The New York Department of Transportation. “Water” is the theme and the art of photography proves suitably fluid for the occasion.

Whether it be classic black-and-white, analog “decisive moments”, color flash imagery, iPhonography (that’s a thing, apparently) or Photoshop, the work proves remarkably consistent in its attention to craft and surface. “Meticulous” doesn’t begin to describe it. The works are affordable; ten percent of proceeds are targeted to benefit Hurricane Harvey relief. Running through January 7, 2018.
