Rob Greene, Watercolors from the Maine Coast

The upcoming show for November will be Rob Greene's "Watercolors from the Main Coast".
The opening will be Saturday, Nov. 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. Rob is a New Paltz resident, but does most of his watercolors while at his summer home in Maine. He will be showing a range of work from very small format to larger paintings. Rob's crisp edges and bold colors convey the dynamic energy of this coastal area. This show will be up until Dec. 4.

Did you miss the opening?

Greg Arnett had a great turnout for his opening at the gallery on Saturday. Beginning with a fascinating demonstration of one of his painting methods and continuing with scrumptious hors-d'oeuvres, Prosecco and beautiful art, it was an afternoon well-spent. If you couldn't make it, the show will continue through the month (Saturday afternoons or by appointment), but sorry, you missed the Prosecco! Hope to see you.

"Autumn" Show of my own Work in the Gallery

While Greg Arnett has his work in half of the gallery, I will be showing a selection of my fall landscapes for the month of October in the other half! Two shows in one location - a good reason to stop by over the weekend. I will have a range of work from 10" x 10" panels to 36" x 42" canvasses. Isn't fall an exquisite season?

Opening of Greg Arnett's Show, "Our Local Landscape"

Saturday, Oct. 9, Greg Arnett will open his show with an afternoon (2:30) demonstration of his painting techniques, followed by a reception from 4 - 6 p.m. Greg has been painting the local farmlands for many years ( I often look at his work and recognize spots I have painted also!). He suffuses his work with the quiet warmth of nineteenth-century traditional painting, tending toward the palette of Inness and the luminist school of painters. Greg is known to many in Marbletown for the enormous amount of work he did in the past keeping the events of the Marbletown Artists' Association going, from the studio tours to art scholarship funds for local students. Greg's show will be up until the end of the month, Oct. 30. Please come and have a look and see if you also can identify the locations of his work!

A Great End to the "Sanctuary" Show

The last weekend of the show by chance coincided with the fall "open" day at Slabsides, Burroughs' cabin at the sanctuary. I contacted someone at the preserve and took some cards for him to put out at the site. I was thrilled to have the great-granddaughter of Burroughs give me a call the next day, hoping to see the show! I opened the gallery for her on Sunday and had some conversations about future cooperative projects with the art and the sanctuary. Unfortunately, I didn't document the occasion with a photo, but wanted to share this wonderful connection with the family.
