Estrellita Brodsky
, PhD welcomed the Board and donors of LongHouse Reserve to ANOTHER SPACE, her gallery of Latin American and Latinx artists.  Their current exhibition, Spin A Yarn, explores the relationship between language and textiles.  Included are two works, by Olga de Amaral and Sheila Hicks, on loan from the LongHouse Reserve collection. 


After a tour with curator and artist Raul Martinez, Dr. Brodsky settled into an informal conversation with LongHouse Reserve director, Carrie Rebora Barratt, PhD.  With her husband, Dan Brodsky, watching, Estrellita explained the genesis of her project, which “began as a search for storage for some of the artworks my husband was unsure of in our home…. But storing art, and working only on our own collection, made no sense.  It’s much more exciting to see art and so we evolved.”


Three works by Tony Bechara are included in the ANOTHER SPACE exhibition. So the conversation naturally evolved, with Brodsky and Bechara leading the entire group over to the Lisson Gallery and a Bechara’s one man show.  There Tony explained his evolution from a figurative painter to an abstract painter and his fascination with color, “mixing of color soon led to my interest in different optical effects, that, in turn, led to the psychology of color, [1] ultimately gave way to my obsession with color theory, from Isaac Newton’s color wheel, reflected onto the wall through a glass prism, as demonstrated in his book Opticks, to Goethe’s Theory of Colours, which made some adjustment to Newton’s theory.  I looked at the Pointillists, too, and their understanding of the qualities of light and color.  I remain ever fascinated by the psychology of optics, by the neurological reactions to colors, and how colors affect us physically and emotionally.”


Guests included LongHouse President Nina Gillman, Board Members Sherri Donghia and Roger Eulau, Peter Olsen, Anne Erni, Gael Towey and Stephen Doyle, and Linda Willett as well as Cindy Farkas Glanzrock, Warren James, Grace Leonhardt, Helen Little, Raul Martinez, Bastienne Schmidt, Barbara Tober and Desiree La Valette.


Tony Bechara’s exhibition at Lisson Gallery continues through February 17th.  His work is included in many museum collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it is currently on view.


ANOTHER SPACE is a not-for-profit program dedicated to presenting the work of Latin American and Latinx artists within a global context. Founded by art historian and collector Estrellita B. Brodsky, as part of the activities of the Daniel and Estrellita B. Brodsky Family Foundation, the program and exhibition space are dedicated to broadening international awareness and appreciation of art from Latin America.


As a first generation American, whose parents immigrated to the United States in the 1940’s, Dr. Brodsky has studied as well as supported academic and public institutions that encourage the global narrative to include Latin American and Latinx artists. 


LongHouse Reserve encourages living with art in all forms. Founded by Jack Lenor Larsen, its collections, gardens, sculpture, and programs reflect world cultures to inspire a creative life. East Hampton's 16-acre sculpture garden features more than 60 outdoor works—including permanent collection works by Yoan Capote, Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono, Sui Jinguao, and Willem de Kooning, and seasonal loans from artists such as Wyatt Kahn, Maren Hassinger, and Ai Wei Wei—encourages exploration and contemplation for new and repeat visitors alike.  As of 2023, the garden is fully open to the public for education and enjoyment, with a next chapter of activating Larsen’s home (a modernist structure based on the Shinto Shrine at Ise) and the extensive collections.
