Two New Exhibits Opening

The Cooperstown Art Association announces the opening reception of two new exhibits to be held Friday, April 1st 5-7pm and remain on display through April 27th.

Stu Eichel will be exhibiting “The Way I See It”, oils of town and country in Gallery A. Stu lives in Saratoga Springs and paints all over upstate New York depicting what we see in our day to day life. “Every day that the weather permits I am outside painting landscapes. My subject matter is barns, mansions, mills, stores, fire departments, shacks and vehicles. The common denominator is that whatever I paint has survived hard times due to aging,” states Eichel. His pieces are as much about place as they are about painting. Using an energetic, loose style that he developed from his abstract expressionist days, he applies it to capture the feeling and history of the New York he lives in.

“Out of this World” by Tony Murray of Cobleskill will be exhibited in Gallery B. Murray states, “ ‘Out Of This World’ is not just a central theme to the pieces I create, it is, in essence, a double entendre. For the images are out of this world in an ethereal sense as well as what comprises them. Once rejects and garbage now have new meaning and life. In this new form of mixed media I present what happens when you join recycling, found objects and photography, ‘Sculptography’ a true mixed media for the 21st century!” Tony’s show is co-sponsored by Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA) and Earth Festival 2011. Set for Saturday, April 9th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Milford Central School, Earth Festival is an environmentally-focused, interactive event – free and open to the public – featuring exhibits, activities, vendors and entertainment, all with a fun, earth-friendly twist. Earth Festival is sponsored by OCCA and Wildlife Learning Company. For more information on this event please visit www.occainfo.org.

Gallery Hours: Open Daily 11:00-4:00pm; Sunday 1:00-4:00 p.m. Closed Tuesdays. Closed Sunday, April 24th for Easter. Please call 607-547-9777 for more information.
