Beginning March 12th and continuing through April 3rd, the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum will present a group show of WAAM artist members juried by Franc Palaia, an active, exhibiting artist who works in photography, sculpture, murals, and artist’s books with over 350 group shows and 40 solo shows to his credit.
Mr. Palaia also engages in an impressively wide range of art activities beyond his own art practice being a gallerist, educator, TV art show host and lamp designer. He is an omnipresent force in the art scene of our region and in the world at large having curated over two dozen shows of photography and mixed media at galleries and museums in the U.S. and in Italy including New York’s Alternative Museum, the Newark Museum, and the American Academy in Rome, to name a few. His own work has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, High Museum of Art, O.K. Harris Gallery, Exit Art, New Museum, Whitney Museum, Vassar College, Dorsky Museum and will be on view this year at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA).
Also on view at WAAM will be a solo show of new photographs by David Morris Cunningham entitled Remembrances of Things Present. Growing out of a series of photographs of once meaningful personal objects that Mr. Cunningham was preparing to throw away, the photos on view are in fact homages to the current objects he keeps around him. Instead of looking backward at what he once valued, Cunningham is looking at his current life through the contemplation of things that he values now for their physical, emotional or metaphoric meaning.
Howard Goldson will present his work in the Founders Gallery, where visitors will also find a selection of small works juried by highly respected landscape painter Bruce Bundock, winner of the Woodstock School of Art’s Hudson 400 Award. The adjoining Youth Exhibition Space will present an exhibition of work byBailey Middle School ESL students.
The Woodstock Artists Association & Museum is located at 28 Tinker Street in the heart of Woodstock, New York and is open on Friday and Saturday from 12 – 6 pm and Sunday, Monday, Thursday 12 – 5 pm. The WAAM is a not-for-profit membership organization featuring a landmark collection of regional art, contemporary artist gallery and a dynamic education program. Exhibition and programs are supported by the WAAM Founders Circle, other individual supporters and membership.
