Environ Vision Designs, a complete design and fabrication service specializing in fine art, custom indoor/outdoor sculptures, paintings, architectural elements, display, scenery, props, models, and restorations, announces the grand opening celebration of its new gallery at 5404 Merrick Rd., Massapequa, on Saturday, June 1, from 4 to 8 p.m. The event, featuring works by artist Lori Horowitz, is free and refreshments will be served.
Owner and director Lori Horowitz, a member of the Massapequa Chamber of Commerce, invites the public to stop by to meet her and view her creations. “My true passion is creating art based on society, political issues, and the environment,” says the designer and artist, whose slogan is “We design what you envision.”
“My expertise in a large variety of media enables me to produce multifaceted pieces that evoke emotion and purpose and communicate thoughts that beckon the viewer to interact,” says Horowitz.
Prior to opening her own gallery, the scenic designer and artist had worked at numerous companies, theaters, institutions, and galleries, as well as for music videos, television, and feature films. She has created designs for The Smithsonian Institute, Comedy Central, Marvel Comics, Smash, and Men in Black III.
The 20-year design veteran is a member of the United Scenic Artists IATSI 829, a founding member of the Long Island Professional Sculptors and Supporters (L.I.P.S.S.), The Huntington Arts Council, and a former Theater Arts and Film professor at Five Towns College. Her work has been in various shows throughout New York, including East Hampton’s Guild Hall, Farmingdale State College, The Petite Gallery in Huntington, and The Kitchen in New York City. In 2011, Horowitz was chosen by the New York State Legislator as a representative of Woman Sculptors in Suffolk County.
