May 30 reception for Watered Down and Figurine
The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center offer two exhibitions, running May 23 through June 21, with a public reception on Saturday, May 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. at 23 Garrison’s Landing in Garrison.
Watered Down: Issues That Run Two Ways is an installation referencing New York state’s water cycles by two environmental artists with a focus on worldwide issues of fragile surface water and groundwater supplies. Susan Knight of Nebraska and Suzan Shutan of Connecticut have collaborated on a body of work in two and three dimensions that is created from repurposed, recyclable and other natural materials.
In the adjacent gallery, Figurine is a presentation of figurative ceramic wall sculptures by artist Jacqueline Shatz that blend painting and sculpture and resonate with the scale and narrative of medieval and archaic sculpture.
