Artist Reception: George Spencer – “Cleaning Out the Attic”
Come celebrate George Spencer and his ambitious exhibition, “Cleaning out the Attic” on Saturday, November 13th, from 6-8pm.
Spencer reached deep into his archives and came out with a multitude of paintings which he reworked into a series of totems and wall hangings. The work fills the storefront windows and spills into the gallery space, covering the walls, floor and ceiling in a chaotic cacophony of bright colors and abstract forms.
“Cleaning out the Attic” gave Spencer the opportunity to create bold, new work and at the same time offer retrospection on his years of painting and sculpting. By cutting his canvases into pieces and then collaging the fragments onto cardboard tubes, sheets of lumber, or rolls of tar paper Spencer is mirroring what he sees as the recent dismantling and decay of society.
The reception takes place during the 2econd Saturday Hudson Gallery Crawl, when the galleries and shops of Hudson stay open late. Go to hudsongallerycrawl.com for details. Window On Hudson takes your health seriously. All visitors are asked to wear a mask indoors, regardless of their vaccination status, and enjoy their refreshments outside.
