(East) Coastal: Photographs by Jerry Novesky

Venue: Amity Gallery in Amity, NY

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 4, from 5 – 7 pm

Exhibit: Month of April, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 – 4 pm

(East) Coastal reflects more than 15 years of travel up and down the Atlantic Coast from Key West to Nova Scotia. The photos in this exhibit focus on major elements of the very special coastal environment. Where sea and land and sky meet, things seem to be just a bit more intense, more beautiful, more powerful.

Co-founder (with his wife, Janet Crawshaw) and former editor-in-chief of The Valley Table magazine, Jerry Novesky grew up in Middletown and earned a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing (poetry) from Ohio University. He has published dozens of articles and photographs in diverse publications ranging from Darkroom Photography and The American Fly Fisher to Audubon Action and American Health, and has edited more than two dozen books on natural history, outdoor recreation and Hudson Valley history.

Shots From Above/Found Paintings

George Haling’s photographs, Discovered Paintings, are unmasked in construction machinery scrap yards, derelict factories, abandoned mining sites and shipyards. Details are isolated and framed out of context. Changing scale, position and perspective forces each subject to loose its recognizable original purpose. Time and space are transformed when an object is pushed from what it once was was to what it clearly wants to be.Haling is interested in transforming the ordinary, by selection and framing, into the extraordinary.

Garret Talbot is an ironworker who likes to take photos sometimes.

Artist’s Reception: Saturday, November 5, 2016, from 5 to 7 PM

Salt of the earth3

Robert Skinner’s Salt of the Earth will be on display at our gallery for the month of August.  It is an exhibition of black-and-white photographs by Warwick photographer Robert Skinner and written interviews by Dorothy Gaydos.

This documentary style arts exhibition focuses on the farmers and farm families in Salt of the Earth2Salt of the Earth1Orange County New York who have voluntarily chosen to protect their land with Orange County Land Trust. It shares the stories, both visually and with accompanying text written by local author Dorothy Gaydos, of these landowners who, through conservation, have promised that these green spaces will remain open and undeveloped for us, our children and our grandchildren.
