It’s a busy weekend coming up. First weekend after Labor Day and shows are occurring all over the place. And, on top of that, our annual Catskill Artists Studio Tour will have our studios open for visiting (Sat./Sun. – 11AM until 5PM). Scroll down to the bottom of this blog for info and directions for our Studio Tour. The tour will conflict with two openings that I have work in, so let me cover them first.
“Sal’s Produce”, an image from my New York series, was accepted into the 2012 Photocentric Exhibition, a national show held at the Garrison Art Center, in Garrison, NY, and juried by Robert Mann, owner of Robert Mann Gallery, NYC and Elizabeth Opalenik, internationally renowned photographer. Opening is set for 5PM until 7PM on Saturday, the 8th and runs through September 30.
“Uniforms”, a recent image of mine, was accepted into a juried show at the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum. The show, entitled “POV: Social Commentary”, relating to the issues of our times, was juried by Karlos Carcamo, artist and curator. Opening is set for 4PM until 6PM on Saturday, the 8th and runs through September 30.
Several friends, all accomplished and respected artists, are showing this weekend as well. Do yourself a favor and visit these fine shows:
Rivka Katvan has a marvelous show opening tonight (Sept. 6 thru Sept. 29) at the Soho Photo Gallery in NYC. Entitled “Broadway behind the Curtain,” the show is a fine collection of her insightful, candid, behind the scenes images of life backstage.
Allen Bryan, another fine photographer and good friend, is one half of a two person show entitled “Narratives, Fabrications, and Other Lies.” The opening is set for Friday (Sept. 7) at the Muroff Kotler Gallery at Ulster County Community College in Stone Ridge, NY.
Loel Barr, another fine artist and friend, one who has the finest hand I’ve ever seen, is displaying her stunning new drawings at the Doghouse Gallery in Saugerties, NY. Opening is set for Saturday (Sept. 8) 5-7 PM and will remain up thru the 30th.
And finally, Elin Menzies, a wonderful painter whose work intrigues and haunts on a primal and mystical level, will be displaying her paintings at Oriole 9 in Woodstock, NY. Opening is set for Saturday (Sept. 8) 5-7 PM and will remain up thru the 30th.
