The Amity Gallery, 110 Newport Bridge Road in Warwick, will hold a reception for artists Gerald Schultz and Betty Ann Robbins Greenwald on Saturday, June 8, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The show extends through June weekends, hours 1 to 4 p.m.
“Making art involves all of me,” Schultz said in the press release announcing the exhibit. “ It starts with an idea or an emotional attitude towards an idea that propels me along culminating in an actual physical product. I step back in wonder while viewing the creation and sense that the piece was more the result of me being a channel than a creator.”
“My work thus far encompasses mobile sculpture, block printing, drawing and illustration,” Shultz added. “Through these various media, I am exploring the use and experiencing the vitality of materials, through form, color and line.”
He received a PhD in chemistry in 1997 from the Polytechnic University of New York, now the Tandon School of Engineering of New York University. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, he studied drawing and print making at the Art Student’s League in New York City.
Betty Ann Robbins Greenwald
Greenwald received a BFA in art from SUNY New Paltz and an MFA from Bard College.
She has been making art all of her life. Her parents schooled her as an artist, putting her in classes at an early age. As a teen she studied in adult art classes taught by an established artist who Lived in New York City.
Her work, she says, is a personal search exploring subconscious energies that manifest visually in color and form. Creating a visual aliveness with depth on a two-dimensional surface. Forms that call for thinking and questioning from the observer.
