Route 22, Seen Through the Lens

Photography

Lisa Paris was at the regular Saturday morning peace vigil in Salisbury on Feb. 18 with Franco, her little mutt from Puerto Rico. Marjorie Reid was there, bearing her beautifully lettered sign that stated, “Resist.” Judith Gott in her pink hat held up two-fingered peace signs as cars honked by. 
Rick Schatzberg was there too, documenting it all with his cameras. It’s a personal project, he explains when asked. It’s his work.

Powerful Works From Two Countries

Art: ‘Germans and Russians’ at Ober Gallery

Rob Ober calls the current show at his eponymous Kent gallery “Germans and Russians,” an innocuous title for a small, powerful show that reveals much about the psyche of both countries.
First up are eight watercolors by Markus Vater, born in Dusseldorf but now living in London. Only 47, Vater works across many mediums, but his work tends toward primitivist, expressionist surprise.

A Peek Inside Peter Steiner’s Mind

You wonder how Peter Steiner does it all: cartoonist, novelist, artist, blogger. Now a small exhibition of work from this compulsively busy man is at the Norfolk Library through March 1. It is a fascinating show of highs (and a few lows) and of obsession with repeated subjects. Rarely are we shown so much of an artist’s mind.

Camera Club Show Is Best Thus Far

Art

Each year the Housatonic Camera Club presents an exhibition of the work of its members (who reside in the Tri-state area) at Noble Horizons in Salisbury. This year’s show, on view weekends through Feb. 19, is the strongest yet. The expected travel photos are more interesting, diverse, colorful; flowers and landscapes are shown in dramatic new ways; black and white is used for theatrical impact and emotional response.

Life, Everything, It’s All Art

Art

LABspace is, at first glance, an art gallery, discovered by following a path to the back of a building on Hillsdale’s main street, Route 23, sidling between restaurants, a crafts shop, a place for coffee with lots of hand-lettered signs and various other indications of an economy gone a little artsy.
“People don’t know where it is until they do,” Susan Jennings likes to say of her gallery. And when they do know, they will likely return.

A Show That Teaches And Delights

Art: ‘Marjory Reid Plus Two: Janet Rickus, Warner Friedman’

Marjory Reid fills her abstract paintings with attitude. You could say the same about her. A teacher of art and art history at The Hotchkiss School in Lake­ville for 14 years (she retired in 2000), she’s a woman of pronounced views formed over years of looking at art and thinking about how it was made.
