Today’s a drizzly day in Essex, so I’m flashing back to sunshine, friends, music and great art on Sunday. Come along for a sneak peak at Stonybrook Gallery in Morrisonville, New York, located a short 30 minute drive north of Essex.
Amy Guglielmo (@AmyGuglielmo) and Corky Corrado were the featured artists, and potter/gallery owner Nancy Rendinaro’s husband, Jeff Rendinaro (Zip City Blues), dish up blues and bluegrass rhythms. Corrado sculpts whimsical critters out of metal and stone. Guglielmo, a best selling children’s book author (Touch the Art), is also drawn to whimsical subjects, scenarios and vibrant colors. She paints with juvenile joy, childish abandon, adolescent irony, and adult skill. Art that makes you smile. And often laugh!
Stonybrook Gallery is Artists’ Co-op
Stonybrook Gallery is an cooperative gallery where artists from the Adirondacks and Northeastern New York State can display and sell their artwork without paying a commission. In addition to a wide variety of art, the gallery sells locally produced gifts including puzzles, candles, children’s books, scarves, mittens, fabric bags, jewelry and cards. 2012 marks the gallery’s third season, and with six more featured artists this summer, you’ll want to add the following events to your calendar:
- Sunday, July 22 Penny Clute (photographs), Les Cosgrove (paintings), and Wendy Patunoff (recycled fabric artwork)
- Sunday, August 19 Catherine Hartung (paintings), Russ Hartung (photographs), and Nancy Rendinaro (pottery)
In addition to these events, the gallery is open by appointment (call 518-563-0689 to schedule a viewing) throughout the summer, autumn and winter. It might be just the spot for your holiday shopping!
