Enjoy our annual exhibition of local artists and see what's being created in the Catskills right now. 

This year, CAS will assemble an independent jury panel to select Best-of-Show awards from the pieces comprising the Summer Members Show. Reviving this long-standing tradition of recognizing exceptional artwork from local artists, these medal winners will go on to be displayed in a traveling pop-up exhibition in unconventional venues around Sullivan County later this summer.

Galen Pittman, FIGURATIVE PASTELS

April 1 - May 30

Opening Reception
Friday, April 1 from 4-6pm

In the Elevator Gallery, Galen Pittman brings an insightful, gentle view to a multitude of human subjects with a lyrical flow of pastels depicting clothed figures. 

"In painting, you begin with a broad and general overview, refining as you paint," Pittman says. It's the same in music. "Every note, like every color in a painting, has its context - depends on the notes around it. The way every color depends on every color around it."

Tara Kopp, WITH AMAZING SCENES LIKE THESE 

Jenna Lucente, LIMITED LANDSCAPES 

June 25 - July 24

Saturday, June 25
Artist Talk 3pm
Opening Reception 4-6pm

 

Both artists are observers of the human condition, though the lenses through which they make their observations are very different. 

Tara Kopp paints miniature objects, specific enough to depict what they represent, yet in their ambiguity they convey a universality of human existence. The objects in her paintings model the American dream, but that dream is contrasted with the prosaic tasks and emotions embodied in the paintings. The paintings are glimpses of a scene or fragments of a narrative and are fictional constructions of specific moments in time. 

Nature is at odds with the subjects in the paintings of Jenna Lucente. Her work portrays a moment of tension between animal kingdom and the natural environment due to ongoing human interference which challenges the animal’s role in nature.

Fernando Colón-Gonzalez, QUASI

June 4 - July 17

Opening Reception
Saturday, June 4 from 4-6pm

“In my work, I avoid making specific reference to things in particular,” says artist Fernando Colón-González. “However, it happens involuntarily that I connect to images that are in our memory, then it’s up to the spectators to continue the journey.” 

Fernando Colón-Gonzalez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1966. He earned a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Escuela de Artes Plásticas in San Juan. From 1987 to 1991, he worked as gallery assistant in Galería Luigi Marrozzini in San Juan. In 1992 he relocated to New York City and in 2013 to Westchester, NY. 

The artist has exhibited in several venues around New York such as The Drawing Center, Howard Scott Gallery, Marta Cervera Gallery, Philippe Briet Gallery, and Nina Freudenheim Gallery. He has exhibited nationally at Larry Becker Contemporary Art in Pennsylvania, Stop Art and Galería Jacob Karpio in San José, CA, and Silvana Facchini Gallery in Miami, FL, as well and internationally in Costa Rica, Guam, and México City.
