“A Closer Look at New Northport Businesses”

Northport residents Demerise Perricone and Celeste Mauro are bringing their artistic flair and talent to Main Street with their new art venue, Gallery Sixty Seven. The gallery is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 5pm with anticipated extended hours (now open Thursday – Sunday 1-6).
Gallery Sixty Seven is named after the gallery’s address on Main Street. The gallery regularly exhibits the work of four local painters, Ms. Perricone and Ms. Mauro, as well as Jim Darcy and Jean Wagner. The styles of the artwork ranges from realism to relative abstraction, explained Ms. Mauro and the subject matter varies as it is inspired by personal experiences “often times images in and around Northport,” she said. “We also hope that our new gallery will provide another venue for local artist to show their work. We look forward to working with the other galleries in town to establish Northport as an ‘art hub’,”
While Gallery Sixty Seven is the first business venture for both Ms. Perricone and Ms. Mauro the pair are not strangers to the arts. “Demerise and I have been involved in the arts our entire professional careers,” said Ms. Mauro. “ We are both retired art teachers: Demerise taught art at the elementary level and I taught high school art.”
For the past 4-½ years, Ms. Perricone and Ms. Mauro were members in The Firefly Artists Gallery at 180 Main Street. The experience with Firefly offered them a profound perspective and education on what it would be like to own their own business.
Gallery Sixty Seven enables Ms. Perricone and Ms. Mauro to do what they love and share their passion for art with the entire community. “Being so totally immersed in the art world as we’re painting or organizing art work for a show is invigorating, as well, as exciting Ms. Mauro stated. “We especially enjoy sharing the artist’s vision with our community, working and collaborating with fellow artist and meeting and talking with people as they visit our gallery. It is very rewarding to be a part of the Northport community, which is so supportive of the arts,” she stated.
