Born in Amityville, NY, in 1924, Richard Mayhew grew up on Long Island, where he formed a deep connection to the natural world. Featuring vibrant landscape paintings created over the last six decades, this exhibition places Mayhew’s paintings in the context of Long Island’s diverse cultural history. The show explores how the artist reinvented the genre of landscape painting to express his African American and Native American heritage. Mayhew uses evocative color and diffused form to convey emotion. He explains: “desire, ambition, love, hate, fear—that’s my paintings.”
