Barbara Galazzo of Gallery 66 NY has updated us on what she’ll be featuring in September in her Cold Spring gallery.
First up is “Terra Incognita: The Artistry of Carol Flaitz and Jane Soodalter,” and here is how Galazzo explains the show:
“The dictionary tells us that the Latin, ‘Terra Incognita,’ translates to mean the Unknown Land. It is an ancient term, rich in mystery and allure, and conjuring images of unexplored seas and magical worlds. It’s also an expression that well suits the two artists who are highlighted in our September exhibition… Each, through her own chosen media, finds startling new worlds in infinitesimally small places, and beautifully translates them into fine art… A ceramics artist from an early age, Carol Flaitz draws her initial inspiration from the realm of electron microscopy. She seeks out the anomalies in images barely a millionth of a meter in scale, and in them, finds what she calls ‘geological landscapes.’ Using these landscapes as her point of departure, she introduces a potpourri of other mediums… Jane Soodalter has been a photographer all her life. Over the past several years, rather than seek expression through an ever-widening scope of subject, Jane has chosen to find hidden worlds through the realm of macro photography. First drawing her subjects from nature, she exposed the innermost secrets of flowers, plants, and – in some instances – animals.”
In addition, Gallery B will feature the contemporary abstract paintings of Mark Zimmermann, while Gallery C will feature “Colorbar,” Robert Wiener’s contemporary and architectural glassworks
The exhibitions will run Sept. 5-28 from noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. An opening reception will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 5. The exhibits will then continue from noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays, through Sept. 28.
Gallery 66 NY is at 66 Main St.
