Gallery 66 NY will hold an informal discussion and dialogue with abstract artist Mark Zimmermann on his artwork, spontaneity and inspiration at 3 p.m. on Sept. 13. Some of the topics he will touch upon are: the use of color as context and metaphor theories of practice — drawing and painting, and the important use of notebooks as a tool for spontaneity.

A featured artist in Gallery B this month, Zimmermann’s paintings are based on the marriage of meditative fields, architectonic structures and an organic gestural line. Zimmermann looks at “color” as both content and metaphor as a poetic duality in his paintings. For the last decade his work has revolved around responses to both the urban world and the more nuanced forms of nature — in particular the ocean and more recently, the landscape of the Hudson Valley.

Since 1998, Zimmermann has exhibited his paintings in 15 solo shows and numerous group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe.

Gallery 66 NY is located at 66 Main St., Cold Spring. All exhibits will be on view from Sept. 5 through Sept. 28. Regular hours are Thursday through Sunday noon to 6 p.m. Call 845-809-5838 or visit
