International Art At Port Library


portartA collection of international scenes and images adorns the Community Gallery in the Port Washington Public Library through April 25.

Artists from the U.S. and around the globe who now live in Port Washington lent 30 works to the International Art Exhibition, part of the World Festival that takes place on the afternoon of Sunday, March 30, in the library and at Landmark on Main Street.

The exhibition’s curator, Paola Greci, is from Parma, Italy, and now lives in Port Washington with her two children and husband, artist Luca Piola, from Genoa. Greci, a member of the library’s Art Advisory Council, found connections between works of art that are as varied as the cultures they represent.

“To make a coherent exhibition of these varied works,” Greci said. “I looked for commonalities in style, color, and medium then let the unique qualities of each work stand out for themselves.”

The artists range from students to professional artists, several of whom are members of the Port Washington Art League. Schreiber High School students Talia Silverstein, Prithviraj Talukdar, Alyssa Aronow and Nicole Albanese all contributed works to the exhibition, as did Schreiber art teacher Marisa DeMarco.

The national connections between artist and subject are often unexpected: Greek artist Konstantina Daskalaki painted La Panoramica di Firenze in Italy; German artist Hannelore Livadas captured Damülas, Austria; Swedish-American artist Doris E. Roberts created Siena in Italy; Kenneth Seligson of Mexico and the U.S. painted Roma Moderna; and Israeli-American artist Dafna Adler contributed Street Scene After the Rain, Innsbruck, Austria.

Other cultures featured include the Bahamas, Chile, France, India, Ireland, Mexico, Russia, and Spain. Mina Lee lent an exquisite print Old Hangul (Korean Alphabet). Tani Waheed’s portrait Ayhan, The American Dream, is a tribute to one of Port Washington’s most successful business leaders and benefactors.

The World Festival on March 30, includes activities and performances at Landmark on Main Street from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., funded by the American Chai Trust; and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the library, sponsored by the Friends of the Library. For information, see

In the end, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the percentage. Rather, they struggle to win the commission by simply doing the agent’s task. In accomplishing this, they devote their money and also time to accomplish, as best they can, the responsibilities of an real estate agent. Those duties include getting known the home by way of marketing, presenting the home to buyers, developing a sense of buyer desperation in order to trigger an offer, scheduling home inspections, dealing with qualification inspections with the loan provider, supervising maintenance, and facilitating the closing.
