LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — The Catskill Art Society (CAS) will host an artist talk at 3 p.m. and an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 for a new exhibition called “Out of Place.” This is a two-person exhibition featuring large paintings and small watercolor/collages by Lisa Samalin and found objects and stained images by Charles Wilkin. The show runs through Sunday, August 25.

“Out of Place” emphasizes the unexpected glimpses of story and mystery that emerge from unusual pairings and juxtapositions. By putting subjects into strangely dreamlike surroundings, or introducing looming figures to invade otherwise familiar scenes, both artists evoke a sense of heightened awareness through their works.

Lisa Samalin got her BFA from the School of Visual Arts. She lives in New York City and has a home in Sullivan County. Charles Wilkin has been a working collage and mixed media artist for over 15 years. He currently splits his time between his studios in the Catskills and Brooklyn.
