Update on Opening Reception at Emerson and Gerhard Richter Painting

Snapshot of Sandra Nystrom at the opening reception of the Benefit in the Emerson Conference Room Galleries Sat March 24th, to Raise Funds for Ulster County United Way. 

The opening was well attended, including many WAAM members.

“The artists in the exhibit yesterday have a lot to be grateful for….the Emerson provided an amazing opportunity and was a very generous host.” Sandra Nystrom

The work of local artists, Sylvia Weinberg*, Anique Taylor, Sandra Nystrom* and DM Weil is on display and the artists have also offered pieces to be given as raffle prizes with proceeds likewise benefiting the Ulster County United Way. Five raffle tickets for $10 includes a $25 voucher for the Emerson Spa. DM Weil is generously donating the featured prize, a giclee worth over $1,000! So come meet the artists and help raise money for our local United Way!

Also went to see Gerhard Richter Painting showing at TSL Hudson and Film Forum, NYC. I applaud Richter for painting while being filmed and allowing us to see him at work. A natural, not conceited man, a master. My companions and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Highly recommended.

Gerhard Richter Painting

Directed by Corinna Belz. One of the world’s greatest living painters, the German artist Gerhard Richter has spent over half a century experimenting with a tremendous range of techniques and ideas, addressing historical crises and mass media representation alongside explorations of chance procedures. The first glimpse inside his studio in decades, “Gerhard Richter Painting” is exactly that: a thrilling document of the 79-year-old’s creative process, juxtaposed with rare archival footage and intimate conversations with his critics and collaborators. From our fly-on-the-wall perspective, we watch Richter create a series of large-scale abstract canvasses, using fat brushes and a massive squeegee to apply (and then scrape off) layer after layer of brightly colored paint. This mesmerizing footage, of a highly charged process of creation and destruction, turns Belz’s portrait of an artist into a work of art itself.
