A day in Catskill...
J and I took a ride to Catskill this weekend to go on the Catskill Artist Studio Tour. Some amazing talent were featured on the tour including Portia Munson, Jared Handelsman and Susan Wides. Unfortunately, we did not make it to their studios-- instead we got caught up exploring the beautiful town.
Within Catskill is Brik Gallery --- which I had never been to before but heard a lot about. It is a lovely space and was hosting an exhibition Cowgirls 3.
"Cowgirls 3" is curated by Rich Timperio, who owns the famous Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Timperio calls the show "Good old fashioned fun, light-hearted and adventurous. It celebrates the collective creativity in our midst and showcases the diversity and style of art in the twenty-first century.”
This was a powerhouse of upstate artists. Kiki Smith (who just moved to the area!), Joan Snyder, Tanya Marcuse, Fawn Potash, Charise Isis, and Mary Frank-- to name a few. Great show--had a lot of fun looking through the diverse grouping. It is up until September 19th.
