On Saturday, December 16, from 5 to 7 p.m., The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton is having the opening night reception for its latest exhibit, Sex, Fishnets & Rock N’ Roll, which initially opened on Friday, December 8. The exhibit features work from photographers Steve Joester and Luciana Pampalone and is described as “erotic meets iconic Rock n’ Roll.”
Steve Joester is a Rock & Roll photographer and mixed media artist. His work has been featured on albums, posters, and magazines and the subjects of his photographic/media work include Mick Jagger, Bob Marley, Neil Young, Sting, and Andy Warhol. His work is characterized as an “unconventional mixture” of materials on canvas, and is included in collections internationally. Joester, who was born in Britain, currently resides and works in New York City.
Luciana Pampalone is a photographer and image specialist who has photographed fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. She has worked in the industry for over two decades and has a client list that extends internationally. Her work depicts women as strong, central figures with black and white compositions and elements of chiaroscuro, dreams, desire, and sensual beauty. Her photography has been published in numerous fashion and lifestyle magazines and books, and is featured in exhibits in New York, the Hamptons, Art Basel, and the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora. She also previously received “Best in Show” at a past White Room Gallery exhibition. Currently, Pampalone is delving into a new medium as she works on a gold leaf painting.
Sex, Fishnets & Rock N’ Roll was curated by Andrea McCafferty and Kat O’Neill, co-directors and partners of the gallery.
