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 HortonTimothy 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!
