RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon presents Ripe Figs and Rich Pomegranates: The Garzoni Series by Beth Haber. Her translation of the still life into contemporary art is credited with bringing a richness of color and nourishment for the soul.
The show opens on Beacon Second Saturday Feb. 8, and runs through March 2. The artist reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 8. There will also be an artist talk by Haber on the work of Giovanna Garzoni and how it has inspired her, at 4 p.m. on Feb. 15.
Haber’s works in this series are constructed upon past elements, observations and ideas of display. The underlying material is mylar — a flat-screen surface to which colors adhere only over time.
Haber is a Hudson Valley artist and a presenting artist at Vassar College. She is a recipient of the New York State Council of the Arts Award and is on the education staff at Dia:Beacon.
RiverWinds Gallery is located at 172 Main St., Beacon. Call 845-838-2880 or visit riverwindsgallery.com. Hours: Wednesday through Monday noon to 6 p.m., Beacon Second Saturday noon to 9 p.m.
