Shapeshifters

"New Mexico...Alaska...New York," Allan Osterweil (2023)

Conversation with the artists: Saturday, June 8 at 5pm
Opening reception: Saturday, June 8 from 6-8pm

This exhibition celebrates the use of shape and color in two abstract artists: Hudson-based painter Allan Osterweil (b. 1943) and his daughter, Montreal-based painter, and writer Ara Osterweil (b. 1977). In Allan Osterweil’s exquisitely crafted drawings and paintings, shapes impose an exhilarating order on a natural world that nonetheless defies all attempts to control it. In bold contrast to her father’s meticulous compositions, the aesthetic embrace of contingency and unpredictability is the very essence of Ara Osterweil’s practice.
