Eighteen Ways of Looking at a Tree at Vassar’s Palmer Gallery

Eighteen Ways Poughkeepsie B

WAAM members Carol Cooper, Stacie Flint, Marlene Weidenbaum, Elisa Pritzker and Staats Fasoldt are among those showing work in this beautiful show.

A message from Carol Cooper:

Dear Friends, 

Inspired by Wallace Steven’s poem, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird, the eighteen Artists comprising the art cooperative LongReachArts have created a show called 18 Ways of Looking at a Tree. This exhibition was first shown at Orange County Community College, and was so successful that another gallery — the Palmer at Vassar — has asked for it. The new show is even better than its first version, and I’m proud to be part of it. 

This one subject has generated so many different approaches — from completely abstract to highly representative work, and everything in between, that it hard to see it without marveling at the possibilities of the human imagination, and the power of art itself. The mediums used include pastel, paint, ink. photography, wood and metal. The works are alike in only one way: each is a portal into the artist’s creative mind.

I hope that you will be able to see this exhibition and that I’ll get a chance to see you. (I”ll be present for the first hour of the reception).
