Forty years of artist’s work to be celebrated

September 2, 2013 by  

This weekend, the Cold Spring Harbor Library and Environmental Center will be kicking off an exhibition of paintings by the artist Louis Legakis. This will include a reception for the artist, while the exhibition itself focuses on the self-portrait works of Legakis that he created between the years of 1954 and 1994.

Louis Legakis was born in 1915 on Long Island, making him a native artist of the area. Between 1949 and 1951, he studied painting at the Newark School of Fine Arts under the tutelage of Leopold Matzal. In 1939, he also worked with the Japanese architect Shogo Myaida on creating the gardens presented during the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York, and then again in Washington DC at the Merriweather Post Estate.

Organizers for this event may want to turn to printing companies in order to advertise for it. Distributing flyers and posters can be a great way to draw people to events, and postcard printing can also be a great way to remind people on a mailing list that an event is happening. Organizers may also turn to brochure printers so that informational material is available during the course of the exhibition, allowing guests to learn about Legakis and his work.

The reception is free and takes place between 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm this Saturday, September 7. It is located at the Cold Spring Harbor Library and Environmental Center in Cold Spring, New York, which is only a short drive away from the town of Hicksville.
