Barbara Galazzo has announced the April exhibition lineup for her Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring.

Falling under the theme “Abstract into Figurative Abstract,” a trio of shows will be on exhibit April 1 through May 1, with an opening reception set for 6 to 9 p.m. April 1.

Gallery A will host “Parallel Realities,” featuring the works of Donald Alter of Newburgh and David Fischweicher of Yonkers.

As Galazzo tells us, “Works in this exhibition by Donald Alter show some of the important markers on his restless journey and transition from abstract into more figurative abstracts. Alter’s newer works refer to imagery depicting people, things, human social issues, emotional and tangible matters each in its own parallel strata. It is common practice for artists to list, on their curriculum vitae, the colleges and universities they attended, just as a point of interest. However, the name Black Mountain College carries with it a certain significance that imbues its graduates with added gravitas. Donald Alter is such an alumnus. The Bronx-born Alter, who will celebrate his 86th birthday this year, is one of a few remaining graduates of the rural North Carolina school that served as a combination mecca and artistic trailblazer for a generation of American artists.”

She continues, “David Fischweicher’s sculptures explore positive and negative spaces, enhancing abstract and abstract figurative shapes. Fischweicher creates rhythms between shapes and movements. Inanimate forms become lyrical and animated.”

Gallery B will feature “Raptures,” paintings on Yupo paper by Liliana Washburn, while George Davison will show ceramic sculptures in “Spirit Shadows,” in Gallery C.

In addition, “A Gathering of Rabbits,” will feature ceramic outdoor rabbit sculptures by Judith Kepner Rose.

Regular gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. The gallery is at 66 Main St.
