Art: ‘Kit White — Recent Work’

The cerebral show of Kit White’s work, now on display at Eckert Fine Art in Kent, is a fascinating study of how an artist gives his own meaning to learned concepts and experience.

Intersection Of Art And Life’s Mysteries

Art: ‘Altars, Amulets and Shrines’

Libraries are wonderful places: Books (of course), music (sometimes), movies, talks, exhibitions, company. But for Matthew Nelson, the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village was a place for this hiker to check emails and charge his cell phone.

A Fun, Engaging, Magical Exhibit

Art: ‘Vagabond Time Killers’

Summer may have unofficially ended with Labor Day weekend, but you still have time to explore the Wassaic Project’s summer exhibition, “Vagabond Time Killers,” before it closes on Sept. 24.
This fascinating collection of works was curated by Wassaic Project co-directors Jeff Barnett-Winsby, Eve Biddle and Bowie Zunino. The inspiration for the exhibition came from a black-and-white photo Barnett-Winsby found online that features a group of young people with the words “Vagabond Time Killers, 1901, Wassaic, NY,” written on the back.

If Nude Photos Alarm You, Proceed With Caution

Art

In addition to the usual items in a photographer’s studio — soft boxes, a spot light, a tripod — Stuyvesant Bearns of Lakeville has a collection of high-heeled shoes and elaborate Edwardian-style wigs. That’s because among his interests in fine-art photography are nude women. Usually in black and white, some adorned, some not, wonderfully lit and all of them beautiful.
To mark his 80th birthday, Bearns will exhibit some of the images he has taken in the last six years at the Center on Main in Falls Village Sept. 8 to 10.

Nature Seen In A New Light

Art: ‘New Works: Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth’

Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth both paint nature — impressions, memories, abstractions — in surprising color combinations that jar or gently lure the eye into seeing something familiar in a new way. Contrasts and similarities between the two artists can now be compared in “New Works: Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth,” the current show at The White Gallery in Lakeville.

Local, Natural Beauty

Art

North Elm Home’s gallery wall, washed in brilliant but not-too-harsh white light, is the perfect place to enjoy Jack Limpert’s 16 gentle paintings now on exhibit there. 
Limpert, who is neither a trained nor professional artist, brings a fine eye and design sense — he was creative director of a leading catalog and direct sales company for years — to his work, which is never sentimental nor saccharine.

Full of detail, power

Early in her career, Dawn Clements drew and colored images of the human body and organs for a medical publisher. Her attention to detail and accuracy was better than anyone’s they had ever used.

Bronzes Will Make You Smile

Art: ‘Peter Woytuck: Unique 2017’

Peter Woytuck is back, but only long enough to put together a delightful show of small bronzes that will open at Argazzi Art in Lake­ville on Saturday, July 22.
In person, Woytuck is soft spoken, a little shy, with an “aw shucks” demeanor like a schoolboy — until he talks about making and patinating his sculptures. You can almost see the blowtorch in his hand, the pigment ready to brush on hot metal; almost hear and feel him polishing for his lustrous finishes.

A Truly Eye-Opening Tour

compass@lakevillejournal.com

It’s fascinating to watch artists work in their own studios. Rather than simply looking at a painting on a wall or a piece of jewelry on a rack, you get to watch the creative process of the artist. You can ask questions. And in the end, you might feel more connected to the finished product after catching a glimpse at its creation.
