Survey of Regional Artists and Delphine’s World
Gallery 66 NY has invited an array of local artists to showcase their talents in a Survey of Regional Artists exhibit for the month of February. The exhibit focuses on artists and curators whose work has not previously shown at Gallery 66 and represents a diversity of styles, from the surrealistic paintings by Paul Arts reminiscent of de Chirico but with his own narrative to Kate Vikstrom’s vibrant and delicate structural watercolor weavings to the complexity of Karen Roff’s landscapes to Fay Wood’s sculpture and Barbara King’s uses a ribbon symbol in her installation work.
The gallery also will open an exhibit by Cassandra Saulter called Delphine’s World. The installation began in 2009 when Saulter spotted a plastic bottle which she dissected; it evolved into 3D work and eventually the figurative pieces of Delphine and her family. In addition, Michelle Mercaldo will be exhibiting jewelry created by harvesting plastic and spinning gold from waste material.
An opening reception for both exhibits is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5, and they continue through Feb. 28. Gallery 66 NY is located at 66 Main St. in Cold Spring; its winter hours are Friday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit gallery66ny.com or call 845-809-5838.
