Cooperstown's Smithy Gallery Announces First Opening of 2014 Season

Written By Editor on 5/15/14 | 5/15/14

Cooperstown, NY - The Smithy Gallery announces the launch off the 2014 summer season with the first opening on Monday, May 26 at 5pm. Continuing the tradition of displaying diversity in art we begin by featuring local artists Rhea Reynolds, Fran Harris and Henry Drexler in the first floor gallery. The second floor will house a special exhibit of Susan Jones Kenyon’s art students. Their exhibit, ‘Personalities of Paint,’ will be complemented by the ceramic work of Alex Bauer, also featured in the garden. The third floor will highlight the works of our Member Artists in the exhibit ‘On Closer Inspection,’ curated by Deborah Ziegler. To add to an already full show of both sculpture, ceramics and paintings, we are pleased to announce the arrival of life-size sculpture by New York City artist, Adrian Landon. For the entirety of the summer, you will find the original steel horse that began Landon’s career in the garden. 

In addition to the gallery opening, they would also like to announce the publication of Wordsmiths: Volume One. It is an anthology of work from the on campus Writers’ Circle, filled with poetry, short stories, photography and drawings. All the authors will be present for a reading in the garden between 5:30 and 6:30. Signed copies of the publication will be available for sale at $10. 

It’s sure to be a lovely holiday evening, filled with art, literature and live music, compliments of the talented Sam Porter. The Smithy, as always, is delighted to present the incredible artist and their creations to the community.
