The exhibition Shadow opens on First Friday, April 3, and runs through April 26, at Gallery 66 NY. An opening reception for the artists is set for April 3 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Shadow explores the hidden worlds cast in the shadows of the multidimensional works of artists Kaya Deckelbaum and Carla Goldberg. Both artists, while working in different mediums, utilize light and cast shadow as a major component of their art. For these artists, light breathes life into the dark.
Deckelbaum’s preferred media is wire mesh, which she studied in Israel with Israeli sculptor Shulamit Hartal. Her works are primarily figurative and are created from memory of the human form and her own imagination. Most of her sculptures are only partial, and the transparency of wire mesh filters and casts a second image, leaving the mind to fill in further information.
Goldberg’s preferred media is ink and resin on Plexiglas, in a technique she has pioneered and honed over many years. Water, memory, light and shadow are constant themes in her mixed media works.
The transparency of Plexiglas and the light capturing aspects of resin throw shadow deep into her pieces, creating watery layers of depth. Like Deckelbaum’s, her pieces utilize shadow as a fourth dimension on the wall behind her works.
Gallery C will exhibit abstract paintings by Audrey Klotz, and the Sculpture Garden will feature kinetic sculptures by Drew Klotz, who uses wind as a power source to put his creations in motion.
Regular hours are Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. For more information call 845-809-5838 or visit gallery66ny.com.
