— "Half Hidden" paintings and prints by Carol Radsprecher opens with a reception on Friday, Aug. 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Alliance Gallery in Narrowsburg, N.Y.
The exhibit will be on view through Aug. 31.
"My overriding intention is to make thought-provoking and eye-delighting images," says artist Carol Radsprecher.
A lifelong resident of Brooklyn, N.Y., she received her MFA in painting from Hunter College in 1988. After painting for many years, she recently began experimenting with drawing and "painting" in Photoshop.
"I became enthralled with the seemingly infinite possibilities inherent in this digital medium," Radsprecher explains. "The speed in which images can evolve, while earlier versions can be retained; the ability to incorporate into the drawings images photographed from the 3-dimensional world; the ethereal nature of computer-based work—all of these qualities have made digital printmaking an extremely stimulating way for me to make work."
Radsprecher's images, both paintings and digital prints, reference the human body, specifically the female body.
"My painting influences my prints; my prints influence my paintings," she says. "I leave it up to the viewer to peer into these small works and create meaning."
Her work has appeared in several solo exhibits, including in Metropolitan College of New York's Next Gallery, Pierro Gallery at South Orange, South Orange, N.J.; and at the Garrison Art Center, Garrison, N.Y. This is her first show at the Alliance Gallery in Narrowsburg.
Free and open to the public, the exhibit is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the Arts Council for Sullivan County, New York, and is made possible in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Alliance Gallery at the Delaware Arts Center is located at 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg.
Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the exhibit call 845-252-7576 or visit www.ArtsAllianceSite.org.
