Through March 8

Artist Talk: Ginnie Gardiner and Martin Katzoff will discuss their process as oil painters, specifically the paintings in Conversations in Color. Both artists’ paintings in Conversations are from a series. In Gardiner’s case, her series was directly inspired by the Italian baroque painter Giovanni Tiepolo. In the artist talk, she will explain how she interpreted Tiepolo’s style, what inspired her, what she borrowed and why, her color choices, and how she was able to incorporate her own fresh and modern spin. Katzoff’s series, entitled “Untitled Exploration”, is more abstract than Gardiner’s, but no less colorful or rich with ideas. Katzoff will discuss his approach to this series, how he works with oil paint, and his relationship to color. The artist talk will be moderated by GCCA’s Visual Arts Director, Niva Dorell. There will be a Question and Answer period at the end where the audience can ask questions. Light refreshments will be available. This event is free to the public. 4:00-5:30 pm GCCA Catskill Gallery, 398 Main Street, Catskill, NY
