BETHEL, NY — The Stray Cat Gallery on Route 17B will hold an opening reception for “Earth Tones,” an exhibit featuring the works of Dale Emmart, Glenn Lieberman and Naomi Teppich, on Saturday, July 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Teppich’s sculptural constructions are influenced by various fossils, lichens and other three-dimensional forms found on or in the earth, which she calls “ancient morphons.” Emmart works texturally with paper: “When forming the paper from a pulp slurry I allow each surface to be uneven; inconsistent with imbedded colors, bubbles and tears,” she said. “The visual ideas are discovered initially while working from observation of landscape.” Photographer Lieberman pays special attention to the tones of the stock on which his images are printed, choosing from “a variety of smooth, archival rag papers selected by the degree of warmth of tone, to match the content of the image.” Likewise, special attention is paid to the tones in which the image is printed, grayscale or color, according to the nature of the subject matter and its compositional needs.
The show runs from July 19 to July 31. Visit www.straycatgallery.com  or call 845/423-8850.
