One of the traditions of Sag Harbor in the winter time is sledding down Pierson Hill. Every year many children and adults come out to the Hill after a snowfall to experience the rush of gravity pulling on the sled. A local Sag Harbor resident and artist, Joan Tripp, overtaken by the love of seeing children sledding, created a beautiful painting and has now presented it to the High School as a gift. The artist, who has a passion for outer space and enjoys recreating the brilliance and abstractness of the stars, gave more traditional art a chance and painted one of her favorite sights.

Joan TrippIt was not her idea to create this painting. In 2010, after a heavy snowfall that covered the hill with a white mantle, her husband encouraged her to go over and to take pictures. When Joan came home and showed the pictures to her husband, he gave her the idea to turn one of them into an oil painting. This turned out to be a wonderful idea.

Not only did Joan create the piece of art she did, but she also experienced great joy by making this painting. Artists find that sometimes making art drags out and becomes merely a chore so that the artist no longer enjoys the process. However, Joan said that making this painting was fun from start to finish. She expressed that her favorite part was designing the children, giving them all individual personalities based on the actual people on the Hill that day. There were some troubles along the way. Joan explained that she is a studio artist and that most of her paintings are re-creations of pictures. She said that making the painting from the photograph she took was hard because the lighting in the photo was off. Even then, she was able to perfectly incorporate two aspects of art which considers to be most important: “the purity of color” and “meaning.”

Joan’s art has been featured in many shows and even though this piece could have been an addition to an exhibition somewhere on Long Island, Joan thought that since the painting was inspired by the beauty of Pierson Hill, then the painting should remain here in Pierson. Our school and our community appreciate this gesture and will hold it for future generations to enjoy.
