‘Time and Place’ at the Alliance

August 9, 2012

NARROWSBURG, NY — An exhibit titled “Time and Place,” featuring prints, paintings and sculptural books by Kathleen Hayek and GG Stankiewicz, opens with a reception on Friday, August 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Delaware Arts Center’s Loft Gallery. The exhibit will be on view through September 1, on which day the artists will lead an artist talk and printmaking demonstration from 1 to 3 p.m.

On view will be selected prints, paintings and sculptural books inspired by natural, tranquil and unique landscapes. Both artists’ work has evolved uniquely through their relationship with the urban and natural landscapes through which they travel, day-to-day and season-to-season.

“Transition, movement and suspension are concepts deeply rooted in my artwork,” said Stankiewicz. “I share time between the bucolic country setting of meadow, mountain and forest and the bustling metropolis configured in a geometric grid with a finite horizon.”

Hayek is inspired by the hills and forests near her studio in Walton. “My driving motivation is to connect with nature and be guided by this spirit in making my art. I use simple symbolic markings of shapes and horizon line, scraped and etched into printing plates, building the landscape with layers of paper and colored inks in the printmaking process.”
