Eileen Novack - Member of fotofoto gallery in Huntington and East End Arts in Riverhead. Recent exhibitions at East End Arts Townhall gallery in December 2019, and upcoming in July at fotofoto. Currently selected for Heckscher Museums 2020 emerging artist series.
Eileen started in photography shooting film back when it was the only option, many years ago. She had a very extensive darkroom in her parents' home and spent many hours there honing her understanding of the craft. She was a commercial photographer, whose first client paid her with vegetables from their garden. Eileen did eventually find additional clients who did pay in non-vegetable currency. She also participated in a group show at a New York City gallery on 57th Street with work involving Kodachrome slide manipulation. When a fire destroyed most of her work in the late 80’s, she decided to pursue other career paths and spent the next twenty or so years in the software world and let her interest in photography fade. Retiring in 2012, she found a renewed interest in photography and started learning about this new digital imaging world and where she might fit in and to also have some fun.
