Helene Manzo: Platte Cove: Paintings & Monotypes

PLATTE COVE: Paintings and Monotypes

April 27- May 22, 2010

Artists Reception – Thursday April 29th, 5-8 pm

Helene Manzo is a working artist living in New York City for over thirty years. In the summer of 2008 she was awarded an artists residency at Platte Clove, a nature preserve located in upstate New York. Found on 208 acres of wild, old growth forest and an ancient gorge with staggering multi-tiered waterfalls, it was an ideal setting for Manzo to explore further her deep fascination with water, a recurring theme in her artwork over the years. Manzo sees water as a powerful life force that is ever changing yet constant. She captures its movement, reflections of light, and colors as a counterpoint to the still forest around it.

Alexander Purves: Watercolors

WATERCOLORS

Watercolors by Alexander Purves will be exhibited in a solo show at the Blue Mountain Gallery in from March 2nd through March 27th, 2010. An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, March 4th, from 5:00 to 8:00.

The watercolors of Alexander Purves are made from the direct observation of nature. His approach emphasizes the immediacy of the medium and its ability to capture – with minimal means – the ephemeral quality of light. The watercolor is applied in transparent layers, the unpainted white paper often acting as a positive element in the composition. Rock formations are a recurrent subject, their aspect varying from moment to moment with the changing quality of the light. These rock paintings are made on a small island in the St. Lawrence River, where he spends part of each summer. Another frequent subject is the winter landscape of northwestern Connecticut where he maintains a studio. The colors and textures of this landscape are reflected both in sketches of folding hills and in more focused studies of tangled brambles seen from the studio window. In commenting on his 2006 show at the Blue Mountain Gallery, William Zimmer observed, “[His] subjects are innately unglamorous, yet following Ruskin in this tendency to embrace the overlooked in nature, Alec Purves keeps coaxing eloquence out of brambles and rocks.”

ETCHINGS: I thought I was invisible…

January 05, 2010 through January 30, 2010

“Victoria Salzman takes delight in making multi-image prints that over lap into ongoing visual themes that are both inspired and ludicrous. Her expertise with the etching process is clearly evident as her prints have a graphic richness set off by an extremely personal sense of line. She is a master at interweaving visual imagination and literary invention.” —Robert Sievert in Artezine Magazine

The exhibition was Charles Kaiman’s fourteenth one person show in New York City. Kaiman has been painting daily for the last fifty years.

He paints in the tradition of the master American painters Dickinson and Hawthorne, using careful modulation of color-value while working directly from the motif in natural light. His current show consists primarily of still life motifs. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is in multiple public and private collections. The American Journal of Nursing is featuring his painting as the cover of the September 2009 issue. He has been featured numerous times in the Art of Nursing section in AJN. He has a dual career as a painter and as an advanced practice psychiatric nurse. He counsels veterans with PTSD, many from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His dual careers give him insight into a broad array of human experience, which have contributed to his artwork’s richness.

These ecosystems–mountains, moors, and coastal zones–have been chiseled and shaped by natural forces over time and are now being altered by manmade global changes.
