CHARLOTTE TUSCH

MEDIUM: Painting
WEBSITE: CHARLOTTETUSCH.COM
About the Artist: Charlotte Tusch has been a life-long artist, exploring many mediums and approaches to making art. Self-taught, she has always been committed to her unique approach to painting and continues to show and have representation by galleries throughout the New York area. For almost four decades she successfully curated and directed a gallery featuring fine art, while never losing sight of her commitment to creating art herself. “My paintings are molded by the emotional and intellectual experiences of my life. What is conveyed is the integrity of the moment. The works are atmospheric and mysterious in nature as well as sensual. The paintings have a slow, soft sense of movement. I work from an intuitive place, creating layers and allowing the moment to inform me. I’m amazed that whether I’m using a brush, palette knife, or pouring paint, my marks and gestures are uniquely my own and consistent. Abstraction has been the direction of my work for decades. I find it honest and perpetually changing, just as we all are.”

CHRIS GONYEA

MEDIUM: Drawing/Illustration, Painting
WEBSITE: GONYEART.COM
About the Artist: I am an artist who abstracts the landscape in order to find patterns in nature. I was strictly an abstract artist until I made the leap to explore the possibilities of incorporating the realistic image into the realm of the abstract. Trees have emerged as the motif in which I could explore that possibility. The tree in many ways can be seen as a figure or the vertical against the horizontal as in a common figure/ground relationship. Within this context I discover relationships between elements of the forest. Groupings, dynamics and subtext occur to me as the images emerge. The figure (tree) stands in the landscape but at the same time is the landscape itself. A very important consideration for me is the negative space. Branches create connections that are easily described by the graphic line. There are times I equate the branches to our own nervous system with synapse and transference of energy making the leap which creates cognitive thought. The tree is as connected to the air as it is the earth. The space between is as solid as the subject. New shapes emerge as result. Forms and patterns become apparent as one looks deeper into these forests.

LINDSEY WOLKOWICZ

MEDIUM: Drawing/Illustration, Mixed-Medium, Painting
WEBSITE: LINDSEYWOLKOWICZ.COM
About the Artist: Lindsey Wolkowicz is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the ways we build and occupy space through memory, perspective, relationship and psychodynamics. Both the influence of her hometown of Detroit, and her decade in New York City can be felt through the presence of grand, sometimes dilapidated, architectural lines in her work, as well as her awareness of the body in space. In her drawings, figure, surface, lines, geometry and color simultaneously interrupt and support one another. Within three-dimensional space, objects and architectural surrounds are constructed to promote a physical and evocative connection with the body of the viewer. While the human form as a subject moves in and out of the work, the human relationship to place is always present through scale, perspective, and associations with color, pattern and form. Drawing is at the center of her studio practice but Wolkowicz’s work also moves into the realm of sculpture, photography, and performance/video installation through ongoing collaborative projects with her partner Dillon Paul. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she received her MFA in Painting/ Drawing from Pratt Institute in 2009. She recently moved from Brooklyn to Kingston, NY where she now works and lives with her partner and their daughter.

About the Event:  Want to create a zero waste art project of your own? Please join us any time during Art Walk at the idea garden, 346 Broadway, for a fun, interactive project. We will supply the materials, almost all of which were donated to us (and likely saved from the trash bin)! You will walk away with one coaster mounted with a custom image of your choosing. Your coaster will be extra special if you bring a 4″ x 4″ (ish) image with you; it can be a photograph, a drawing you love, a piece of a map, a page from a magazine- whatever you wish! Just come have fun making a small art project of your own! All ages are welcome, and there is a resident dog in the space (she does require belly rubs from most visitors).
