Golden Age of New Paltz @ Wired Gallery
July 1 @ 8:00 am - July 30 @ 5:00 pmFREE
Wired Gallery in Stone Ridge is curating a show devoted to the artists of the 60s who lived and worked in New Paltz. Citing the cultural and artistic vibrancy of the small college town at that time, this installment focuses on the art of New Paltz faculty, students and community members in the years of 1959 to 1963: a pivotal period nationally, something like the gathering of a storm.
The artists featured in Part 1 are:
Professors: Ben Bishop, Ilya Bolotowsky, Manny Bromberg (pictured here with a student), Edith Holt, Harry Hurwitz, and Bob Schuler.
Students: Patricia Herz Deahl, Bob Draffen, Shelley Farkas Davis, Orelle Feher, Bill Gersh, Marie Greene, Betty Greenwald, Adrian Guillery, Sharon Barry Logan, Elaine Mars, Joan Melnick, Michael Norcia, Wayne Quinn, Eddie Samuels, Margie Myers Simon, Art Stockin, Fran Sutherland, Beverly Wallace, Cynthia Winika, and Frank Wright.
Residents: Gene Hines, and Thadius F. Knaflewski.
PLEASE NOTE: The Wired Gallery is only open SATURDAY and SUNDAY.
You can bike there via the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. There are two routes, and both use the road part of the way. The route via Mountain Road is vigorous riders with a penchant for a steep climb. The other is via Route 213. You know, like something from NYS DOT. ‘Nuf said.
