Opening Party - 'Schaghticoke: You Can Go Home Again

CPG-Schaghticoke_Oct2017_4x5.jpg

Schaghticoke~You Can Go Home Again' stems from a visit to the small rural community at the northern most edge of Rensselaer County in upstate New York where I grew up. Attending a class reunion, suddenly I was looking at the area with a different set of eyes. While growing up many of the local sights there were taken for granted. No longer mundane, they are sights of great beauty.  

The photos evoke memories from everyone's childhood and teenage years, but seen with a difference perspective.

Roundtable Discussion: Almost Like We Know with David Loncle

IMG_1979.JPG

Join us on September 9th for a free roundtable discussion on Almost Like We Know with exhibiting artist David Loncle at Snug Harbor's Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art.

The collection of paintings in Almost Like We Know is about a feeling of distance. Artist David Loncle looks at the spaces inside and out of us that form and inform the structures of our living. In an exploration of change and uncertainty, Loncle asks how meaning arises through recognition and the lack thereof. This work seeks to make visible—in some uncertain way—the conventions, questions, and boundaries that define.

David Loncle is a Staten Island native working as an Adjunct Professor at the College of Staten Island teaching studio art and civics. He is a painter, writer, teacher, and gardener.

Wildlife and Landscapes

Jerry Coppola, will host his first art show, Wildlife and Landscapes, which will be featured on Saturday, June 10th from noon - 6 pm at Art On The Terrace Gallery, 
776 Richmond Terrace, SI, NY. 10301

* * * * * *
Twenty masterful and colorful oil paintings will be exhibited at the Gallery encompassing animals in wild frontiers to marsh landscapes to hidden forest sanctuaries.

Jerry Coppola, a native of Brooklyn, NY, has been living and painting on Staten Island for over 40 years. A realist painter working predominantly in oils and watercolor, he attended the New York Institute of Technology and the Art Career School.

He began his professional career as a commercial artist for Family Circle Magazine. Then, after being drafted and while serving as a Military Police officer, he also painted murals for the military. Afterward, he worked as a commercial artist in Manhattan as well as a financial planner.

Jerry says, "I have always wanted to explore, through paint, the cool blue atmosphere of a forest during winter’s early morning.” Jerry loves nature’s beauty and its wildlife.Major influences on Jerry are Andrew Wyeth, Thomas Hart Benton and Winslow Homer.

“While Wyeth and Homer were quintessentially American, and also provide a sense memory for technical precision, Benton was near and dear to me - Benton was, at heart, an illustrator. I started as an illustrator for the army, and have grown to feel that my paintings, where possible, should tell a story.”
