SALES TO BENEFIT HYPA (HAMPTONS YOUTH PERFORMING ARTS) PROGRAM

                

Ron Buchter’s photos are hand printed and include scenes from the East End of Long Island and New York City.

In the words of international art dealer Peter Colasante, “Ron’s images are unique – they reflect his superb technical skill and many look like paintings. The landscapes look like delicate watercolors and the New York City scenes are reminiscent of the best photorealist paintings of late 20th century. Ron’s work certainly demonstrates that photography can be art on the highest level.”

Proceeds from the show will be donated to support HYPA (Hampton’s Youth Performing Arts), Southampton Cultural Center’s free educational program that offers high school students the opportunity to develop a story, write scripts and produce a show.

A long-time supporter of the arts along with his late wife Carolyn Kendall, Ron believes that creative art is an important means of developing skills that can be used throughout one’s life to promote understanding and enrich individuals and society.

RON BUCHTER’S PHOTOGRAPHY

Ron, a self-taught photographer living on the East End of Long Island started taking pictures In high school and college but put photography aside while seeing to other responsibilities: teaching on the secondary and college levels, writing software and investing in real estate. He resumed his interest in creating images several years ago. Each hand printed and framed piece can be purchased by contributing to the Southampton Cultural Center by credit card or check. In addition, Mr. Buchter is willing to print and frame custom sizes of selected images.

HAMPTON’S YOUTH PERFORMING ARTS PROGRAM

HYPA offers a journey from story to script to stage. Inspired by Mr. Buchter’s photographs, the teenagers attending, have developed short plays that they will perform and eventually connect to become a single performance piece. Mentors in various disciplines from music to make-up join Program Director Chris Shaughnessy to guide HYPA members through the professional process of creating a show.

Teens in the program include actors, dancers, singers, musicians and comedians, as well as those interested in set design, costuming, make-up advertising promotional writing and journalism.

“HYPA’s objective is to create an atmosphere where creativity and a variety of voices can gather, becoming a creation of art. Personality is not suppressed, any level of ability not overlooked. Inlaid with cohesiveness and individuality, the program offers what many aspects of society is deprived of for youth.” -Tessa Arnzen, HYPA participant
