North Meets South As Cutchogue’s Alex Ferrone Gallery

Brings An All-female Artist Lineup To Hamptons Fine Art Fair.


It’s Alex Ferrone Gallery’s first run at the Hamptons Fine Art Fair this year. The North Fork gallery is presenting gorgeous works by five regional women artists to South Fork art enthusiasts at the posh event. The 2024 Hamptons Fine Art Fair runs from July 11-14 in Southampton and Alex Ferrone Gallery will be in Booth 119 in the De Kooning Pavilion near the main entrance.

Director, Alex Ferrone says, “This is a very exciting opportunity for us this year to introduce our Gallery and our fabulous artists to a new audience at one of the largest cultural events in the region. Our first showing at the Fair will feature a small group of incredibly creative female artists. Large artworks will include serene hand-constructed rural scenes by Carolyn Conrad, fictional narratives in photomontage by Marisa S White, crystalline color water studies by Katherine Liepe-Levinson, textural coastal oil and pastel paintings by Gráinne de Buitléar, as well as some of my abstract Aerial Observations. Additional works on paper will also be available.”

About the Artists

Carolyn Conrad (Sag Harbor, NY)

Born in Massachusetts, Carolyn Conrad grew up in a rural town steeped in New England history that is a large source of her inspiration. Her early art training at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and undergraduate work at Massachusetts College of Art, helped form her minimalist and conceptual aesthetic. After first exhibiting in the Boston area, Ms. Conrad moved to New York City where she received an MFA from New York University. She lives and maintains a studio in Sag Harbor, NY.

Conrad’s art has been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in New York including Parrish Art Museum, Guild Hall of East Hampton (Awarded Top Honors and a Solo Exhibition), Alex Ferrone Gallery, Atlantic Gallery in New York City, and Katonah Museum of Art, among others. Throughout New England, her works have been exhibited in Cape Cod Museum of Art, the deCordova Museum, and Fuller Museum in Massachusetts, and others.

With influences of a creative family and the poetic imagery of her Irish heritage always present, Gráinne seeks to evoke the energy of a moment through texture and mark-making in pastel and paint.

Ms. De Buitléar’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in Europe and the United States, most recently in New York at Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue, Guild Hall of East Hampton, The Mills Pond Gallery in Saint James, and in Stonybrook at The Long Island Museum and The Reboli Center for Art & History, among others.

Marisa S White (Beacon, NY)

Photographic artist Marisa S White is best known for seamlessly layering multiple photographs together as she weaves personal narratives through surreal and fantastical imagery. Raised in Houston, Texas, childhood visits to The Menil Collection opened Marisa’s imagination to new possibilities as she learned about artists such as René Magritte, Giorgio de Chirico and Max Ernst. During her college years as a drawing and painting major, Marisa found her passion for photography and after, was introduced to Photoshop at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography which she says changed her artistic world forever.
