Upcoming Events

Hats off to 150 Years!

Silverwood Gallery has aligned with local artist Tom Myott to present Hats Off to 150 Years, a reception and gallery opening featuring Myott’s original paintings in celebration of 150 years of Saratoga style, culture and history.

A preview of Myott’s paintings will be held at the gallery on Thursday July 18, 2013 from 6 to 7 p.m. with a reception immediately following from 7 to 9 p.m. featuring catering by Sperry's.

The first 50 attendees to the reception will also receive a complimentary Thoroughbred racing poster signed by the artist.

Myott’s newest painting series features a favorite Saratoga style harking from the city’s Victorian past, the chapeau. Myott, along with Silverwood Gallery, commissioned several local women passionate about the community to represent the long-standing tradition and pose for his most recent paintings donning the fancy hats. Myott will be unveiling the works at the reception, which coincides with the Hats Off to Saratoga Festival at the Saratoga Race Course. In addition, Myott will be previewing and taking pre-orders for his first limited edition tabletop book depicting Saratoga hats and thoroughbred racing. 

 

Meet the Begins!

10% of the night's proceeds (from ALL art and merchandise sales) will be donated to the Franklin Center Community Center food pantry.

Paintings by Tom Myott and Photographs by Jeffrey Anderson 

On view through Early September

 

 

"Our Pastoral Heritage" 

Painted Landscapes Celebrating the Bucolic Beauty around Us

June 11- July 19th

A group show featuring work by:

George Van Hook, Mark Tougias, and Valerie Craig

The show includes painted landscapes by three artists; Valerie Craig, George Van Hook and Mark Tougias. “Our Pastoral Heritage,” is a collection of landscape scenes that captures the seasonal atmosphere of upstate New York and the Northeast. From verdant, rolling hills to decrepit barns, each artist brings their own style and interpretation of the wealth of beauty our bucolic surroundings affords us in the Northeast. The dates for this show are June 11, 2012 through July 19, 2012. 

 

George Van Hook, a native of Pennsylvania, lived and worked as an artist in the Bay Area of California, before retuning to the east coast, specifically Washington County, to raise his family. An artist all his life, he follows in the traditions of J. Alden Weir and William Merritt Chase with his integration of form, light and color to create textured landscapes. 

 

Mark Tougias is a self- taught painter, who takes inspiration from the landscapes of Vermont and Upstate New York. He attended the University of Massachusetts, where he studied education and Art History. Like many of the Luminist and Barbazon painters before him, Tougias is interested in the poetic and spiritual qualities of the place, which he then translates onto the canvas, creating a sensational experience for the viewer. 

 

Valerie Craig has twenty years of experience in the field and has learned from various accomplished artists. Her subject matter varies, but always includes soft light to convey a sensitive approach. She paints en plein-air whenever she can and takes influences from around the United States and even Ireland. She currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, Peter. 

 

Heather Kranz "Dynamic Nature"

A reception for the artist will be held during Saratoga Arts Fest weekend on Friday, June 8th, from 6- 8 PM. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Artist Statement:
I am constantly inspired by the natural world; the sunrises and sunsets, the
ordinary upstate NY landscape that I see on a daily basis. Of course, I also am
deeply moved by the majestic: the rivers and streams and mountains that are part
of this landscape. I could go on and on about light and shadow, the underlying
abstract and spiritual components of any subject matter (other locales,
interiors, still lifes or some combination) but I create art because I have a
need to make visual the excitement I felt when I first looked at (or thought
about) the subject at hand, searching for the unseen, not just the surface
reality.

For my landscapes, I usually work from small studies and quickly taken digital
photos. Rarely do I start and finish a piece plein air, but I have a strong
desire to
work outside. It recharges me. In the studio I gather all my material and filter
the subject matter through
my own lens of experience and artistic sensibilities so the work will be a
personal interpretation.

I like Paul Klee’s creative credo,  “Art does not
replicate what we see; rather it makes us see.”

He has been a Visiting Artist at many universities and institutions, including Yale University and the Art Institute of Chicago, and has received awards from the Elizabeth T. Greenshields Memorial Foundation, Montreal; the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown; and the New York State CAPS Program. Wynn’s active and diverse exhibition career began with the first of numerous New York City solo shows in 1964. In 1970, his work first received international recognition in the Whitney Museum’s landmark Twenty-Two Realists exhibition. In 1978, he was the first living artist to be given a solo exhibition at the Adirondack Museum. In 1995, the Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired one of his oils for its Twentieth Century Collection (the first Adirondack resident artist so honored since Rockwell Kent). Wynn was included in the recent Vermont group exhibitionsPicasso to Warhol: Paintings from the Sixties and Seventies, at the Elizabeth C. Wilson Museum, Manchester, and in As Others See Us, at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, in company with Alice Neel and Chuck Close, among others. His work was recently exhibited in New York City at D. Wigmore Fine Art, and in 2010, his work was included in the National Academy of Design’s185th Annual Invitational Exhibition of Contemporary American Art, in New York City. He has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art News, Arts, The New Yorker, Art International, and many other publications and is included in all major fine arts reference volumes in the United States and abroad, including Who’s Who in American Art.
