My most recent work is a direct reflection of my surroundings. I work and walk around New York City on a daily basis. I would like to convey the enormity and solemnity of the buildings and the city as a whole. I have always drawn and painted cathedral and church interiors and the experience of walking around NYC has a similar effect. It gives one the feeling of insignificance. It is also a dirty, filthy, beautiful place. The city works as a giant sundial. The morning and evening sunlight is directed by the architecture. These light and dark areas and quiet moments in a massively populated city hopefully are conveyed to the viewer. To learn more, visit http://aaron-hauck.

BARBARA MASTERSON “People in Fields”
I am known as a landscape painter. Twenty-one months ago, when I was out plein air painting, a group of young male migrant farm workers came into view. I gestured them into my painting, appreciating their presence at first as merely compelling sunlit shapes in the landscape. As time went on these shapes became much more than figures. Their forms became individual people with sunburned faces, discrete personalities, and with distinct life stories. My paintings began to change and to grow. After almost two years painting in both gouache and with oil sticks and traditional oil paint and brush, my work now is more portraiture than landscape. In my paintings, my subjects sometimes look directly at the viewer. They are hard at work. They claim our attention. These workers are here among us but separated from us. My paintings ask the viewer to come closer to know these human beings.

Barbara Todd is a locally born and raised photographic and digital artist whose work has been described as “painterly”, sometimes “romantic” or “dramatic” and is sometimes noted for its unusual light. Her interest in unusual light is influenced by her growing up in her cherished Hudson Valley and the Hudson Valley school of painters. She feels that Henri Cartier-Bresson and classic noir films in part influence her monotone work. A self-taught photographer, Barbara’s subjects range from landscapes to abstractions and from straight photography to, more recently, creative digital experimentation, with a special interest in reflections. For Barbara, the art of looking is as important as the rest of the image creation process. She strives for each work to break new ground rather than repeat herself artistically. Born in Poughkeepsie and raised in Hyde Park, she attended F.D. Roosevelt High School and graduated from Marist College. Barbara is VP of Marketing for Artists’ Collective of Hyde Park and has been a member since its inception in 2012. Previously she was also Secretary for Art Along the Hudson, which sought to promote art for member communities in the Valley, and Vice Chair of the American Science and Technology Partnership, whose goal is to promote the success of STEAM education among American children and youth. Barbara has worked at a number of major corporations and smaller organizations, building, training and managing QA software testing teams and managing IT projects. She is currently consulting with HDTracks.com. She also enjoys hiking, reading and her lifelong fascination with

Growing up in Saugerties, the landscape of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley always held fascination. Living and traveling in various places in the U.S. and Europe, the landscapes and streetscapes of those places have continued to draw me in. In my paintings, I hope to translate to two dimensions not just a picture of a place, but the emotional reaction a simple arrangement of shapes, or of a particular light and atmosphere.
