Richard Talcott & wife, Carol Swierzowski, are both talented artists living in Saugerties, NY. They will be on hand at the Arts Center September 24th while the 3rd Annual Vassar Street Brew Fest is going on under the big tent from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. They have often shown their works together, but have independent points of view and artistic expression, each approaching their art differently and their creative processes are reflected in their final products. Richard talks about the paint in this particular exhibit, “The juxtaposition of color, value and shape. I don’t set out to paint “things”…trees, buildings, roads, etc. Hopefully these elements develop out of the placement of the paint. I’ve essentially been painting “Nothing” for many years. There are no intended subjects in these works, they just evolve, unfold, and go where they go. They resolve into landscapes along the way.” Carol, on the other hand, describes her displays as “two diverse applications of creative exploration. The non-objective works represent an examination of balanced composition focusing on pure components that make up each work through color, shape, texture, and design. “
These artists’ works can be viewed in the galleries of the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and by appointment. Click here for more information.
