Last night's artists reception at Ron Terner's Focal Point Gallery was a buzz with City Island Royalty. Among the many pieces featured in this month's installation are works produced by Lauren Chernin, the wife of City Island's most powerful and influential businessman, SAMMY, who attended the successful Friday night event.

However, for Terner, the most important people in his life are featured in this photo. They are his mom, daughter, and son. His wife Susan was under the weather and did not attend this jammed packed monthly reception. From right to left Ron, his mom Alice, son Rajeev, and youngest child, his daughter Ruby.

Focal Point Gallery is conveniently located at 321 City Island avenue and is open 7 days a week. 718 885 1403

Ron Terner has been in business on City Island for 41 years and has practiced his art of photography for over 45 years. He has been featured in major photography magazines and is in the private and permanent collections of museums, individuals and corporations.

Terner says he has photographed every possible subject and situation. From portraits, fine art, to weddings, special events, and much more. His approach to his work is always with an artistic eye and respect to the subject.

Focal Point Gallery was founded in 1974 by Terner and serves as an alternative exhibition space for exceptional artists. It mounts monthly exhibitions every year primarily of photography. The artistic techniques and subject matter runs the gamut and includes nudes, landscapes, computer images and photographic wall sculptures.
