the public is invited to the opening of “To Stop the Mind from Wandering”
an art exhibition curated by Miriam Hernández, in the Catskill Park Room at Morgan Outdoors.
Opening reception: 4 to 6 pm with many of the artists present.
Participating artists include:
Alex Siroc, Candy Spilner, Gail Tuchman, Kristin Gronbeck, Magaly Perez, Marjorie Morrow, and Miriam Hernández.
Exhibition runs through Sunday, October 25, 2015 and all of the artwork is for Sale!
According to the curator: “The works comprising this exhibition have been selected for their restraint and focus to suggest, or perhaps even induce, a state of meditation. The viewer is invited to quietly contemplate their seemingly uncomplicated combinations of form, design and color.
The works may or may not represent the entire oeuvres of these artists, but have been chosen for their aesthetic simplicity. Almost all the artists refer to the natural world as the impetus for their work, but without making the work representational.
These are visual attempts to quiet the mind from making random associations and to gently coax the eye/mind connection into watchful stillness.”
