Great Neck Historical Society presents
The History of the Saddle Rock Grist Mill

 

                                                            

Historic Saddle Rock Grist Mill built before 1700

Photo by Milt Price

Constructed around 1700 and restored to its mid-19th-century appearance, the Saddle Rock Grist Mill is one of the few remaining tidal mills left in the country and serves as a reminder of the importance that these mills once played in the economic life of Long Island. The mill, which was used to grind grain and corn, overlooks Little Neck Bay. The Saddle Rock Grist Mill remained in the private hands of the original owners and their families until 1950 when the Eldridge estate was sold to a developer. It was left by a descendant of the property owners (the Udalls) to the Nassau County Historical Society and was subsequently given to the County in 1955.

Scott Ross Photography

 I love to capture moments with my photography.  Whether it's people, places, or objects, something to make me pause and  consider that particular subject and its surroundings.  Sometimes it can be in the subject composition or sometimes just a mood that presents itself.  Recently, I've been photographing seascapes.  Most are time exposures to capture the movement of water against a solid object such as the jetties at Long Beach.

I feel a combined sense of beauty and mystery with the results of these images.

'Angel Shale' Handmade Prints presented by Michele La Mont Ganz

 

I  have always felt a connection between the performing arts and visual arts. There exists a form  to melodies as well as color. I try to create free flowing and imaginative works that draw the viewer in again and again. My smaller works invite close up inspection as they are intricate and abstract. I want each observer to see what  is meaningful to them.

      I continue to experiment with papers, mediums and processes in my current work, always seeking to create curious and delicate pieces that draw the viewer closer for a more intimate experience.  All works are unique and hand printed on various papers.  Works are produced using a variety of  techniques  such as;  Intaglio, chine colle, etching, solar plates,  linoleum cuts, gold and copper leaf.

- Michele La Mont Ganz

    Michele La Mont was born in Troy, New York. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from SUNY Albany with a concentration in Piano performance.
