Upcoming Events


On a quiet Saturday afternoon,  Downtown Glen Cove will be invaded by zombies…and superheroes, princesses, monsters, and characters of all kinds as the annual Downtown Children’s Costume Parade gets underway on Saturday, October 29th, presented by the Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District.
The festivities begin at 12 Noon at The Regency at Glen Cove, 94 School Street, with a ‘Scary Story Hour’ and refreshments. The parade is intended for children 12 and younger; and accompanying adults are encouraged to get in on the dress-up fun! Line-up is at 1:00 PM at the intersection of School Street and Highland Road in the Staples Center parking lot. After the parade, children may trick-or-treat throughout the downtown at businesses displaying the special BID “Welcome” posters.  The Fun Bus offers climbing, sliding fun in Village Square from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.
 How about a costume contest, and a pie-eating contest? We have them all in Village Square! Applications for the pie-eating contest can be obtained at the Downtown B.I.D. office at 30 Glen St., #200, or attached below.
We will be assisted by members of the Glen Cove High School DECA Club. Our parade is proudly sponsored by: GARVIES POINT * CLAY NATION

Cornelia Hernes, Stephen Bauman, and Steve Forster: Selected Works
A Group Exhibition and Collaborative Works at Hersh Fine Art, Glen Cove, NY
September 10-October 6, 2016


                 Glen Cove, NY--Hersh Fine Art, of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art, is pleased to present a group exhibition of drawings and paintings by Cornelia Hernes, Stephen Bauman, and Steve Forster. The exhibition will be on view from September 10 to October 6, 2016.  The artists will be present for an opening reception on Saturday, September 10, from 6pm to 9pm, which includes a live painting and drawing demonstration from 4pm to 7pm.  The exhibition and demonstration are free and open to the public.
Hernes and Bauman currently reside in Jersey City, NJ as principal instructors at the Jersey City branch of the Florence Academy of Art.  Forster, a resident of Glen Cove, is director of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art, where he also teaches.
The collaborative work of Steve Forster and Stephen Bauman merge the talents of two painters with similar backgrounds, but with different artistic visions. These collaborations recreate beloved Long Island landscapes, such as Cedarmere in Roslyn and Morgan Park in Glen Cove, bringing to them the creative friction that comes from the visual interplay of two different artists’ interpretations, and the textures of two different artists’ hands.  These pictures, described by the artists as “abstract realism,” are like jazz improvisation; they bring out previously untapped qualities in each artist as one answers the other in the same painting.   Together Bauman and Forster reach the height of sensitivity to atmosphere, light and color, transcending the subject matter.
Stephen Bauman's portraits center on the emotional inner life of his subjects. Through his mastery of drawing media, he aims to capture the human spirit as it passes from one experience to another.  The drawings are an homage to the craft itself, offering an observable dialog between the artist’s mind and hand as we see clearly defined planar shifts, cross-hatching, and erasure marks.
Cornelia Hernes, born and raised in Norway, spent most of her formative teen years in Africa.  This exposure to a variety of vastly different cultural norms has given her a respect for and celebration of life and individual personhood that she brings to her portraiture.  Her drawings and paintings are rarely simply the rendering of a model.  One can often detect layered meanings, such as in the painting Scarlet Ribbon.  A young woman with unrestrained red hair is in jarring contrast with a green background.  Her expression is determined, almost fierce, which seems to be at odds with the tender heart-shaped pendant and girlishly disheveled scarlet ribbon in her hair. It may call to mind someone who will defy expectations placed upon them, or perhaps, that a woman is not defined by her emotions and beauty alone.
This exhibition will run from September 10 through October 6, 2016, with a gallery reception on September 10 from 6-9pm.  For details please refer to or: Hersh Fine Art at The Long Island Academy of Fine Art 14A Glen Street
