Art Garage events to close exhibit
In conjunction with her solo exhibition at “The Art Garage, The Landscape We Call Home: Works on Paper by Deborah Geurtze,” Geurtze will lead an informal discussion about her art-making process at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at the garage. She will address distinctions between multiple plate etchings and monotypes, illustrate the advantages of the different processes and share examples of plates and prints. Additionally the artist will be celebrated at a closing party from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. Both events are free and open to the public and will be at The Art Garage at 689 Beaver Meadow Road in Cooperstown.
The Art Garage will host Geurtze’s exhibition of colorful large-scale works on paper and smaller hand-colored etchings, inspired by the regional landscape, through Saturday, Feb. 15. Geurtze, who has created art in her Toddsville studio for 25 years, is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Art and Design, the State University College at Potsdam and the State University at Albany.
The Art Gallery is open daily by chance and appointment through the closing party. For more information, call 547-5327 or (315) 941-9607.
