WHAT'S NEW (Please scroll Down for all our goings-on in art, music, workshops and events)
Please join us this Saturday, April 6, 5:30-8:30 PM as we spring foward with Rhythms, our first show of spring. In the spotlight for this all-member show are Karl Volk and Barbara Bergin, whose work will be featured in our central gallery room. This show runs through May 26. Barbara Bergin has studied painting under James Boujikian, Ruth Brunstetter, Franklin Alexander, Skip Lawrence, Betsy Jacaruso and Keith Gunderson. She holds a dual degree in Chemistry and Art. She is a curator and board member of the Artists’ Collective of Hyde Park and is also a member of Cross River artists and The Gallery at Rhinebeck. Barbara works in watercolor and acrylic in both abstract and representational styles.
Karl J Volk works in a wide array of mediums, including watercolor, silicone intaglio prints, collage, photography, and sculpture, just to name a few. He calls himself an "opportunistic artist" since he is not rigidly committed to just one way of doing things. He earned a B.A. in Art Education from Brooklyn College and in 1964, a Master's Degree from NYU. From 1958 to 1988, he taught art in the New York school system and has been the focus of numerous exhibitions.
