“Driven to Abstraction”: will be presented in this new TCCC online art exhibit. View on-line at www.tompkinscorners.org. Free on-line admission.
The event runs from Monday, March 1st, to Saturday, April 3rd, 2021.
Tompkins Corners Visual Arts committee has invited several artists to participate in this exciting new exhibit. Abstract art has been one of the most intriguing and controversial developments in the art world and presents unique challenges to the artist. Many say that in the desire to most fully express themselves and their world, they are “driven to abstraction.” Participating artists include many professionals who live and work in New York’s Hudson Valley. Our contributing artists are Cindy Booth, Carla Goldberg, Will Hanlon, Bob Madden, Karen Madden, Barry L. Mason, Ilse Schreiber-Noll, Arlene Seymour, Jane Soodalter, and Linda Winters.
Viewers are invited to scroll through the artists’ works and select their favorite piece. At the close of the show, an Anne Anastasi Visual Arts Award of $100 will be awarded to the artist whose work is selected by our curators, and a “People’s Choice” award of $50 will go to the artist who receives the most votes from online visitors. Our curators are Kate Hoekstra, who is a painter and chairs the Visual Arts program at TCCC, and artist Maureen Winzig, owner of WinzigArt studio & showcase located in Peekskill, NY.
