Beginning Friday, Feb. 18, the exhibit titled “Riverscapes” featuring the work of Sandy Plotkin will be on display through Friday, March 11 in the Davis Gallery at Houghton House. There will be an opening reception on Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m and all are invited to attend.
Described as being choreographed like a modern dance, Plotkin’s brush marks move, slide and leap across the surfaces of his painting. His paintings feature a broad impressionistic sweep of his landscapes.
Plotkin’s inspiration for the collection comes from living next to a tributary of the Hudson River for more than 30 years. When describing his inspiration he states, “I have been delighted in the unexpected mystery of the river’s season, its tensions and energy. These are the ideas I hope to share with the viewer.”
The exhibit is open and free to the public Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. This is the second exhibit of the spring semester and upcoming exhibits include “Points of View” which will be on display from April 1 to April 22, and the Student Art and Architecture Show will be the final exhibit of the semester showing from April 29 to May 15.
The exhibit is sponsored by the Art and Architecture Department.
