Fred Woller is a long-time trustee on the Franklin Village Board as well as having served as Planning Committee Chairman and Zoning Board Member in the village of Fleischmanns. He is also a substitute teacher, EMT volunteer and carpenter specializing in old houses and decorative cabinets.
Woller has also been showing his sculptures for over a decade, and more recently showing and selling his large paintings. He began painting in earnest after his artwork was adopted as the logo for “Ride-and-Peak” bike race sponsored by the M-ARK Project. At that time he began painting his bicycle series. Many of these paintings will be on exhibit at his upcoming show at Zoom Gallery.
He recently has been commissioned to replicate a missing “Lunette” relief depicting early history as part of the Kingston City Hall restoration. He says that this is the most ambitious art project he has undertaken and he was flattered to be chosen based on a relief he had in a show last March at Arts Society of Kingston, according to the release.
The public is invited to view and purchase the paintings at an exhibit titled “My Point of View” at Zoom Gallery at 1164 Main St. in Fleischmanns. The exhibit will open Nov. 30 and run through Dec. 22. There will be an artist’s reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Nov. 30.
