Rosendale Cafe will host Steve Blumenthal's exhibit of paintings, which will be displayed in the Cafe during the month of October 2015.
Steve studied oil painting with Hong Nian Zhang at the Woodstock School of Art; watercolor with Richard Ochs and Eli Rosenthal, and pastel with Shawn Dell Joyce and Anna Contes also at the WSA. He is an active member of the Washingtonville Art Society and the Orange County Art Federation.
Steve has recently won awards for watercolor at the Orange County Day exhibit, and for pastel at a New York State competition. Steve has exhibited at the Woodstock Art Association and the Garrison Art Center. His works are in many private collections.
"Although I've taken numerous classes and workshops over the years, I consider myself self-taught; not having studied under any one person over a length of time. Rather, I let those teachers be inspirational. I explore various media; and even in my plein-air paintings, form and content are liquid."
Karl Volk participated in the Poughkeepsie Open Studios event on 6/20/15. He was interviewed by an HVNN reporter at his pop-up installation at 330 Main Street, Poughkeepsie.
Karl wants to establish a repository and museum for art left by local artists which remains after their passing. He is actively seeking support and a physical location for this purpose.
