The Laffer Gallery today announced the date for its upcoming Summer Salon art exhibition. Featuring nine artists, the show will open Saturday, August 8, and run through Sunday, September 6. An opening reception will be held Saturday, August 8.
Featured artists in the Summer Salon exhibit include:
Caroline Ramersdorfer – Ramersdorfer studied philosophy in Paris and sculpture in Carrara, Italy. Both large and small scale, her sculpture work is a study in contrasts—tense and fluid, weighty and ethereal—and speaks to the mutability of perception and experience.
Erik Laffer – Laffer’s paintings re-describe the world with a language of symbols, reminiscent of map-making. His abstract personal narratives are logical and experimental explorations of place from the past into the present and future.
Robert Gullie – A resident of Cohoes, N.Y., Gullie is a photographer specializing in the early 1900’s technique of Hand-Tinted Photography, a multimedia collagist and most recently has begun working in the photopolymer gravure printing process.
Teri Malo – Malo’s landscape paintings primarily explore place, whether in her series on the mill towns of the Blackstone Valley or in her more recent coastal New England series.
David Seiler – Seiler’s art operates in the space between painting and photograph—object and print. His equine works represent a new starting point in the continuum of his process. In each work, collage functions both to break the image down into component parts and to create a cohesive whole.
Harry Orlyk – A native of Troy, N.Y., Orlyk’s landscapes are influenced by Nebraskan artist Robin Smith, photographer Lawrence McFarland and painter Keith Jacobshagen.
Randi Kish – A retired public school art teacher, Kish is a full-time ceramic artist working out of the Saratoga Clay Arts Center.
David Miller – Miller is one of the most well-known and respected artists in the upstate New York region. His paintings, which underscore the irresolvable tension between wonderment and memory, are included in a wide range of public and private collections.
John Van Alstine – Van Alstine is sculptor based in Wells, N.Y. He is renowned for stone and metal abstract sculptures exhibiting exceptional balance and poise. The works are often multi-level, with references to classical, nautical, celestial and western mythological themes.
Located at 96 Broad Street in Schuylerville, The Laffer Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For more information call 518-695-3181 or visit thelaffergallery.com.
