A group exhibit in conjunction with Kestrel Land Trust

Artists in a variety of media and styles bring attention to the land and its importance. The Mount Holyoke mountain range has been a beacon of inspiration for artists for hundreds of years and we invited the Land Trust and the artists to demonstrate why its so valuable and how to preserve it.

Opening reception Friday, May 12th 6-8pm.

I will be taking a few months this winter to work on some new paintings.  Classes will resume in late April although I will be seeing individual students for private lessons.  Contact me if you'd like to schedule a time.

"Certainly for artists of all stripes, the unknown, the idea or the form or the tale that has not yet arrived, is what must be found. It is the job of artists to open doors and invite in prophesies, the unknown, the unfamiliar; it’s where their work comes from, although its arrival signals the beginning of the long disciplined process of making it their own. Scientists too, as J. Robert Oppenheimer once remarked, “live always at the ‘edge of mystery’ — the boundary of the unknown.” But they transform the unknown into the known, haul it in like fishermen; artists get you out into that dark sea."
Rebecca Solnit from “A Field Guide to Getting Lost”

Here I go into that dark sea...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Jewish Chicken Farm Series to be shown at the Jewish Community of Amherst Hall Gallery, 742 Main St, Amherst MA from May 7-July 31, 2015.
Opening reception will be during the Amherst Arts Walk on Thursday May 7 from 5-8pm.

From around 1999-2002 Paula Gottlieb created a series of paintings interpreted from old photos taken in the 1940's and 1950's on her family's New Jersey poultry farm.  She transformed some of these black and white family photos into paint and color and in the process has recreated a period of time informed by her memory and intuition.  The paintings are documentation and memoir from a personal view of a thriving community that virtually disappeared by the 1970's.  They honor the importance and uniqueness of this community and dispel the myth that Eastern European immigrant Jews were strictly urban while recognizing their contribution to early poultry farming in America.
