FRESH Art Long Island Presents:

"A YEAR IN THE LIFE" Project 366

at TOAST Coffeehouse
242 E Main St Port Jefferson, NY 11777

Opening Reception Thursday April 9th from 7pm - 11pm

Tim Needles is an artist, photographer, humorist, and writer from Mout Sinai, NY.  His eclectic media and art work has been seen in multiple exhibitions around New York as well as The Photographer's Forum, The New York Times, French Photo and The Long Island Pulse .  He is the recipient of the Robert Rauschenberg Award in Washington DC and works with Adobe as a Master Educator.  Tim is also the founder of The Strictly Students Film Festival and currently teaches art and film at Smithtown High School East.

"A Year In The Life": Project 366 is a photographic journal of each day of 2008 from the point of view of the artist Tim Needles.  Every image was created using only an inexpensive point and shoot camera with the intent to creatively reflect on each day without overly advanced artistic tools.  The resulting 366 photographs document a year which was both positive artistically and tumultuous personally from his travels to Puerto Rico, Maine, and San Francisco, to his father's struggle with cancer.
