Galleries to host opening receptions
On Friday, April 7, Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring will host a reception to open a retrospective of 60 years of paintings by 95-year-old artist Sam Bartman of Greenwich, Connecticut. It’s About Time includes landscapes, abstracts, fantasy imagery and patterns that the self-taught artist created on repurposed World War II Army surplus reflective plastic sheets. It is his first solo show. The reception will be held at the gallery at 66 Main St. from 6 to 9 p.m., and the exhibit continues through April 30.
The Buster Levi Gallery at 121 Main St. will open Paintings: A Matter of Fact by Ursula Schneider with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibit includes artwork from three series, including some from Schneider’s Hudson River paintings, inspired by the view from her window. Other paintings use abstract shapes to capture the power of plants and apple trees. The show continues through April 30.
