River and Biota

Opening reception: Sept. 10, 2015, 6 p.m. ; curator's gallery talk at 7 p.m.

River and Biota

curated by artist Naomi Teppich, focuses on bringing awareness to the beauty—and vulnerability—of our country’s rivers, particularly the northeast quadrant including the Delaware, the Hudson, and the Susquehanna rivers.

Arists in the community selected by Teppich have a special relationship with “the river” and, through their artwork, react strongly to the bombardment of this beloved ecosystem and our environment in general. While not designed to be a political show, River and Biota allows the conscience of these artists to bring public awareness to this serious issue. 

Eighteen artist, including painters, printmakers, and sculptors, were selected for this exhibit, which was first exhibited with the Catskill Art Society in Livingston Manor, NY.
