Please join us for "Notions of Time," site #16 of Upstate Art Weekend & a special exhibition of works that resonate with the historic & natural beauty of Beattie-Powers Place.
Featuring Catskill-based artists:
Michel Goldberg: Monotypes & sculpture
Matt Hill: Photography
Richard Saja: Embroidery
The interruption of normal activity over the past few years has made us experience the passage of time differently.“Notions of Time” acknowledges this, while exploring how places and artists capture -- and bend -- time in different ways.
The house of Beattie-Powers Place is a Greek Revival design from the late 1830s. It is an artifact of the past as well as a reinvention for the present day and future. Abstract monotype and sculpture by Michel Goldberg, photography by Matt Hill, and embroidery by Richard Saja have their own approaches to capturing time, be it the movement of wind over a plain, light from a distant star, or a revisiting of historic fabric designs. "Notions of Time" seeks to incite rediscovery of the structures and spaces around us. By visiting this exceptional site and seeing these dynamic works in person, visitors are invited to capture their own notions of time.
Michel Goldberg, born in France, is an accomplished graphic designer who ran his own design firm. He has taught Graphic Design and Visual Communications at the Pratt Institute and printmaking at the Longboat Key Center for the Arts. He has more recently been entirely devoted to drawing, printmaking and sculpture. His works have been shown throughout New York and Florida, and are held in many private collections. www.michelgoldbergart.com
Matt Hill is a night photographer, artist and educator. His work seeks connection to a seemingly infinite universe, particularly via long exposure night photography to capture the ancient light from distant stars, nebulae, and empty spaces, along with landscapes of wild, remote areas and their astounding beauty, landforms and effects of time, erosion, and decay. https://matthillart.com
Richard Saja runs a small design firm, Historically Inaccurate Decorative Arts. His art mainly focuses on embroidery, creating "interferences" of the formal patterns of French toile. His work has been exhibited in Paris, Berlin, The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Shelburne Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the National Museum of Embroidery in South Korea. http://historically-inaccurate.blogspot.com/
