Exhibition of paintings by Trevor Hunter
Jan. 18, 3-7 p.m.
T. Hunter, Bird of Paradise 1, mixed media, 31×31 in.
     Art Gallery 71, Rhinebeck, NY is celebrating the New Year with art work of gallery member, Trevor Hunter.  Hunter’s explosive abstract surfaces are the Gallery’s featured artwork for January 10 to February 3, including Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 20.  You are invited to an artist’s reception, January 18, 3-7 p.m.                           
           New York City born, Hunter has exhibited throughout the North East coast from East Hampton and Manhattan, to Hudson, Rhinebeck and Bronxville. He now resides and maintains a studio in the Hudson River Valley.
     Hunter  creates his abstract compositions using various combinations of a mixture of acrylic, oil, and ink, often ranging from thick impasto to translucent oil and acrylic washes. Ink reveals linear forms and the textural quality of his surface.   He wields his palette knife to apply juicy areas of color giving his paintings a tactile appeal that tempts the viewer to want to touch as well as savor them visually.  Using all these means, Hunter skillfully creates an abstract interpretation of colorful and primal subject matter.  
     Art Gallery 71 invites you to enjoy the artist’s reception while viewing this array of brilliant and vibrant color.

In February, Art Gallery 71 is excited to feature Annette Jaret and her current exhibit: The Sound of Snow and will host an artist reception/open house on Saturday, February 15th from 3pm to 7pm. In this exhibit, Annette is presenting still places, scenes of meditation and peace. Nature is always her inspiration though she is not mimicking what she sees, rather manipulating aspects of the scene. Annette captures her surroundings, then cuts and pastes photos into her vision. She works at the intersection of photography, oil painting and collage using cameras and photoshop and, finally, a print on cotton blend paper with archival inks. Annette trained as an oil painter and incorporates that sensitivity into her digital work. From the age of twelve, Annette studied oil painting with Anthony Trujillo and went on to earn a BFA from Pratt Institute. Annette was born in Paris, France and came to the USA at a young age, spending much of her life in Brooklyn, NY, she now makes her home in the Hudson Valley. Annette views art as a window into another world. She will explore a particular theme and then move on when it becomes too familiar, perhaps returning at a later date with fresh ideas.

  You are cordially invited to an artist reception/open house
on Sunday, March 8, from 2pm to 4pm
in memory of
Rosalind (Roz) Tobias
.       Art Gallery 71 is honoring Roz Tobias, our fellow artist and friend, who passed away on December 13th following a brief illness. There will be a special exhibition of Roz’s work in the gallery between March 6th and April 5th.
     Roz studied art at a number of prestigious institutions including Radcliffe, Academie de la Grande Chaumiere (Paris) and the Art Students League (NY) and she studied with some very notable instructors including T. Lux Feininger, Robert Brackman, Michael Burban and Bruce Dorfman. Art was a central part of Roz’s life. As an artist and an Art Therapist, she held strong beliefs related to the value of art in the healing process.
      Through her life, Roz explored landscapes, abstraction and expressionism but always returned to the human figure, even hosting figure drawing sessions in her home.
      We, at Art Gallery 71, know Roz best for her dreamy figure sketches done with ink and wash, which are immediately recognizable as Roz’s work.
       An extremely talented artist and a lovely person, Roz will be missed but her work lives on!
       We will be offering tea and nibbles (Roz’s favorite) at the open house on March 8th and we hope you will stop by to celebrate the marvelous work and life of Rosalind Tobias.
