Gallery Exhibition - Catherine V Graham: Night Vision

Friday Sep 1, 2017 Saturday Sep 30, 2017

Artist's Reception: Sunday, September 17th, 3 - 5 PM.

Catherine V Graham is an abstract painter and printmaker, who investigates formal aspects of color and shape, while creatively referencing the social and natural sciences. The resulting opalescent quality in her work signifies both the complexity of space and time as well as the breadth and limitations of human perception. The congruent theme throughout her work is the exploration of humanity’s fate within the rational and irrational, natural and constructed world.

Technique-wise, the work involves layering acrylic and oil paint, with linoleum printing, and other experimental printing techniques. Graham has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts (2005), and an MA in Art Education from The City University of New York: Lehman College (2017).

Gallery Exhibition: Hyesun Jung: Whisper

Monday Oct 2, 2017 Tuesday Oct 31, 2017

For the month of October, the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library presents Hyesun Jung: Whisper. Jung's work is a unique combination of painting and ceramic influences. She draws on Korean painting techniques, applying 10 - 15 layers of natural pigments on hanji, traditional Korean paper, to achieve depth of color. She then applies kaolin and carves into it with ceramic techniques.

Jung has exhibited extensively in Korea, Texas, and the New York metropolitan area. Jung describes her approach to art as follows, “No two days are the same, but daily routines make us feel like they are. Art plays a role like a bell stimulating our consciousness. Its sound can echo around our prosaic lives and its resonance makes us see our lives in new ways. Beautiful life is with us when we enjoy the unique moment in our life with pausing and listening for the whispers of nature and our inner voice. I hope people have an aha-moment to step aside from their routine and realize how beautiful life is while seeing my works.”
