PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SOUTHOLD, NY. The Southold Historical Society is pleased to announce that local artist Dorothy Russo was this year’s winner of the “Thomas Currie-Bell Memorial Purchase Prize” in the North Fork Annual juried art exhibition held at the Southold Historical Society’s Reichert Family Center.
Russo’s work, entitled “Out Back,” was selected from nearly 30 entries submitted. The painting depicts the Moore outhouse & garden. A typical farmer’s outhouse from the late 19th century, it is original to the Thomas Moore House site on the Southold Historical Society Museum Grounds.
Dorothy Russo lives in Greenport, New York. Her pastel paintings reflect her inspiration of the luminous colors of Long Island's beaches, sky, and farmland. She is a member of the Pastel Society in Southwest, FL and a member of the Center for the Arts in Bonita Springs, FL.
