JUNE 2023 / Featured Artist: Lori Allen-Bauer


By day, Lori is an elementary school teacher (art, reading), and by night, she is an avid photographer. "There is beauty in everything. You just have to stop and notice. That's what a photograph allowed you to do... stop and notice."

Born and raised here on Long Island, Lori celebrates the beauty that is all around us. This collection is a visual inventory of Long Island's treasures: from the iconic bridges that connect us to New York City and Fire Island beaches, to the stables of Belmont, to the bountiful harvest of wine and flowers of the North and South Forks. "We have it all." Lori's photographs are displayed and sold in Port Jefferson, Ocean Beach, East Islip and West Islip and in Saratoga Springs. She often donates proceeds to charities including: Meals on Wheels; New Beginnings Traumatic Brain Center; Teen Challenge Alcohol and Drug Rehab Center; Make A Wish; and Island Harvest.



Founded in 1974, the Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. Our goal is to present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for our diverse Long Island community.
