Roy B. Brinker ”Vessels”
Winners of the 2012 Juried Show, including Karen Grant, Lynda Naske, & Russ Hartung Opens November 2, from 5 – 7 pm.
Roy B. Brinker received the “Best in Show” award at our 2012 Juried show last February.
“While sitting in front of an object and drawing or painting it, I naturally focus on trying to create an accurate representation. The camera though, has made accuracy easily obtained, so it can seem trivial to draw from life. For me though the value is not in the accuracy but in the small abstractions and bits of myself that distort the work making it unique and giving it value.
The drawings and paintings that I am presenting in this exhibition represent a recent return to creating images from life after many years of life itself taking priority. I have limited myself to objects that could be defined as vessels. This was a way for me to diminish the anxiety of choosing a subject. It also conveniently gives me a name for the show. ”
Roy lives and works in Plattsburgh. Karen Grant will be displaying fiber art in the form of several small quilts; she is from Rainbow Lake. Lynda is from Johnstown and her work consists of finely detailed colored pencil drawings. Russ Hartung will be showing some of his photographs; he is from Morrisonville.
Please join us for the reception at the gallery from 5 – 7 pm on Friday November 2. Everyone is welcome. The exhibit will run through November 25. The Gallery is open 10 – 5, Tues – Sat and 11 – 3 on Sunday.
