Anthropocene Drifter: Paintings and Sculptures by Zachary Skinner 
Vibrant TracesWorks on Paper by Susan Walsh
Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, August 10, 5-7pm. 
The exhibitions will be in the Riverside Galleries from August 10 - September 15, 2019. 

Dry Riverbed with Rainwater Generator and Kale by Zachary Skinner 
Oil on canvas

Anthropocene Drifter is an exhibition of paintings and a large interactive sculpture installation depicting the dystopian point of view of a nomad living in a future ecosystem that has been all but destroyed by climate change. Zachary Skinner’s dark depictions are balanced by a brilliant use of color in his paintings and a whimsical, sometimes humorous, always thoughtfully constructed use of mixed media in his sculptures. Paintings and sculptures support one another in the telling of this fictional journey of the Anthropocene Drifter.

Rain Drawing by Susan Walsh. Gouache on Yupo paper

Susan Walsh embraces nature as a way of marking time through observable changes in natural phenomena. Charcoal, gouache, wind, rain, sea water and paper become her  co-collaborators in the exploration of time through multiple concepts of chance, control, chaos and entropy resulting in poetic transformations on paper.

Galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Garrison Art Center is located adjacent to the Garrison train station, which is served by Metro-North Railroad from New York City's Grand Central Terminal and southbound from Poughkeepsie. Trains run hourly in either direction.
