"Garnered" by Kathy Halton:
Lines, shapes, colors, nature, stories, and memories, are garnered and used to create these works. They are generally layered and complex in form, using a combination of drawing, painting, printmaking, and collage, to render a finished piece. The painting “Infinite” is made with acrylic paint and a collection of woodblock images; both collaged and printed directly onto the surface. A blockprint tells a story at a point in time and then can be used again to harken back or bring forth a new story at a different time in history. The prominent image in this piece is of the garter stitch, which tells of the bandages knitted by my mother for patients in a lazaretto. And with time, joy, and effort, the garnering continues!
"Foraged" by Bob Ingram:
Generally, when folks go foraging in the woods, they search for mushrooms, berries, edible roots, etc. Bob, on the other hand, is keen to find unusual branches and pieces of rusted metal. Many of the pieces have been found at old farm dumps or areas in which mining debris has been discarded. Of particular interest are items from bygone eras. Much of the work in this exhibit was harvested from the Garnet Hill area in North River, NY.
COVID Guidelines: For everyone's safety at the reception, all will be required to show proof of vaccination OR recent negative PCR test.
