Collage, painting and sculpture at Gallery 66 NY
Gallery 66 NY presents Finding Power: Women of Courage, Passion and Character, an exhibit that explores the ways in which women are viewed — or not viewed — in today’s society and media. These paintings, collages and sculptures by Hudson Valley artists Maureen Winzig, Leslie Fandrich and Helen Hosking depict powerful feminine virtues, strengths and vulnerabilities. The exhibit opens with an artists’ reception July 3 and is on view through Aug. 2.
Fandrich works with a wide range of papers, including maps, vintage newspapers, fabric patterns, old book pages, music sheets, advertising ephemera and images of women appropriated from fashion, to create collages that appear both modern and timeless.
Winzig’s oil paintings mix realism and abstract techniques to represent a range of feminine archetypes, from protector, to creator, to mourner. An admixture of realistic faces and forms combines with abstract tones to reflect Winzig’s perception of the essence of woman.
Hosking works in bronze and clay sculptures. Each bronze is originally created in wax and then cast in bronze, using the lost wax process, and then finished with a museum quality patina. Her work is involved in an exploration of timing, form and space. Hosking’s sculptures recreate the illusion of movement and life through dance sculptures.
Both Winzig and Fandrich will donate 10 percent of this show’s sales to women’s resource centers. Gallery 66 NY is at 66 Main St. in Cold Spring. Regular hours are Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 845-809-5838 or visit gallery66ny.com.
