Four artists will display their works in Orange Hall Gallery Loft July 31 through August 23, 2012. Their show is entitled The SUNY Orange ~ SUNY New Paltz Connection as they have all graduated from SUNY Orange and SUNY New Paltz, although at different time periods.
The exhibit was conceived and organized by Denise S. Isseks, a photographer who also utilizes an array of media including gel transfers, collage, charcoal, acrylics, watercolor, installations, and portraits. The other three artists in the show are Jim Schofield, Mitchell Saler, and Sandy Marsh. Jim Schofield is primarily a portrait artist, who enjoys working in graphite, pastel, and colored pencil. Mitchell Saler’s drawings and oil paintings emphasize vastness, dramatic lighting, and atmospheric effects. Sandy Marsh works in oils, encaustic, printmaking, etching, and mixed-media collage.
A reception at which the artists will be present is set for 1 to 4 on Sunday, August 5, 2012. The event is free & open to the public.
