An Artists Studio Event at six walkable sites
in the Village of Warwick, NY
Saturday, July 14, 2018 10 to 4
For generations, this rural area has compelled
landscape art. (Indeed, a Jasper Cropsey homestead is
conveniently located near a local supermarket.)
If there could be such a thing as the tyranny of
hillsides, orchards and sunsets, Orange County
is its abode.
Quietly, there have been the Others, appreciative, even intoxicated, by the rural landscape, yet not driven to celebrate its immortality in traditional ways.
Kurt Seligmann (1900-1962) was one such artist. (Bottom Right in photo) A refugee from Nazi Europe, Seligmann had a studio in Sugar Loaf, NY and a residence in New York City. To his farm house, on White Oak Road, came friends from the Surrealist and Dada movements. Marcel Duchamp shot 5 bullets into a barn wall there. Seligmann and other Surrealists, were tireless perpetrators of
Spirit into Matter,
finding ways into the Creative Unconscious.
On July 14, 2018, as part of The Warwick Summer Arts Festival's, Wonder-Wander-Warwick, five errant Hudson Valley artists are convening for just a day at Dan Mack's Studio:
David Horton, Timothy Hull, Daniel Mack, Elisa Pritzker, Riva Weinstein
for Spirit into Matter: an exploration of Interior Landscape
Matter is Spirit moving slowly enough to be seen. - Jesuit mystic Teilhard de Chardin
To the illumined man or woman, a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are the same. -Bhagavad Gita
We are bringing examples of our recent work and looking forward to what collaborative opportunities arise to work/play together and with Visitors. ARTIST DETAILS
One feature of the day is the chance for visitors to assemble a Wand from materials and objects available at each of the Hubs.
At Daniel Mack's Studio there are jars and jars of natrual and supernatural objects: feathers, seeds, pods, shells, bones, buttons, nuts and more available for Wand-Making.
There are five other Artists Hubs within easy walking distance!
