BETHEL, NY — The Stray Cat Gallery will hold an opening reception for its new show “Ethos of Abstraction,” on Saturday, November 9 from 4 to 7 p.m. The show runs from Friday, November 8 to Wednesday, November 20.

Beau Gostomsky’s rural Ohio upbringing informs his love of texture and color, inspiring him to constantly investigate new mediums and approaches. He incorporates wax, oil, gouache and acrylics to create statements of meaning and beauty.

Nina Isabelle, who was raised in rural Pennsylvania, writes, “My subject matter emerges from a fragment of our collective psyche, with themes brushing on religion, mothers, childhood, conflict, outer space, power, perception, and belief.”

Lucienne Weinberger’s underlying intention is to impart a sense of discovery and excitement that reflects her own creative process. Beginning with a visual stimulus—a found object, a drawn line or a piece of fabric or wood—a process is initiated that develops into a finished work.

Gallery hours are Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or call 845/583-3141 for appointment. Visit www.straycatgallery.com.
