Taylor Slater Art Exhibit to benefit the Lonely Whale #strawlessocean Campaign 

(Montauk, NY July 9 2018) The Montauk Beach House is pleased to present One Ocean – Seven Strawless Seas, a solo exhibition and charity event featuring original works by American artist, Taylor Slater. The exhibition marks the official launch of Taylor’s work to the public and will be on view at The Montauk Beach House, 55 S Elmwood Ave, Montauk NY, with an opening reception & silent auction on Friday August 10, from 6 – 9 pm.

Taylor’s love for the sea is conveyed through her striking delineations in the overlapping cerulean, sapphire and greenish hues of her oceanscape resin paintings.

Exclusive to the artists reception is the silent auction of one of Taylor’s works to benefit the amazing efforts of the Lonely Whale organization, who will be present during Taylor’s reception, highlighting their mission and creating awareness towards their ongoing campaigns.

“I’m humbled by this opportunity to share my work with the public. Being able to connect with and support Lonely Whale’s efforts with their #strawlessocean campaign feels right. I hope this brings other artists to the forefront and inspires them to join this amazing effort”
