Opening Reception: February 11th, 4–6 PM
An artist talk is scheduled for March 18th, details to come.
Allison Maletz presents a series of watercolor paintings celebrating the thriving wild ecosystem in Sullivan County. These life-size watercolors depict the plethora of native flora and fauna, along with its pests and invasive species, which complete our gardens, public spaces, and conversations.
Maletz’ style teeters on the edge of botanical observations while embracing all the nuances and possibilities of her medium: watercolor. These paintings are her effort to convey gratitude – to the land, the creatures, this place – through all its complexities.
