The Lace Mill Galleries presents Recent Work
by Charlotte Tusch and Maxine Davidowitz
The Lace Mill Arts Council is pleased to announce the exhibition of the work of two artists, Charlotte
Tusch and Maxine Davidowitz, from August 7—September 7, 2021, with an opening reception on
August 7, from 5-8 p.m.. Gallery hours after the reception will be on weekends from noon to 4 p.m.
Charlotte Tusch has been an artist-resident of the Lace Mill since it opened in 2015. For almost 40
years she successfully curated and directed the Art Forms Gallery in Red Bank, NJ and Woodstock,
NY, specializing in late-20th Century American art, while continuing to pursue her own art practice.
Self-taught, she has been mentored by many artists, including Jacob Landau, Nuala Clarke, Chaim
Gross, Donald Elder and Christie Scheele. Her work explores abstraction using a variety of mediums
and approaches, from poured paint to direct application and layering, and with a keen eye for color.
She has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout the United States, including in New York, New
Jersey, Colorado, and in venues in the Hudson Valley such as the Woodstock Artists Association &
Museum, The Lockwood Gallery/Kingston, ArtBar Gallery/Kingston, Emerge Gallery/Saugerties,
Gallery Lev Shalem/Woodstock, Wired Gallery/High Falls, and many others.
Maxine Davidowitz is a Hudson Valley painter and printmaker whose work is an abstract, colorful,
intuitive response to the natural world, with a painterly approach to mark-making. She has studied
with, among others: Nuala Clark, Annie Lapin, Kate McGloughlin, Donald Elder, Jenny Nelson and
Claire Sherman. In her work, organic textures contrast with hard-edged flat shapes, in subtle reference
to the effect of humans on the natural world. She exhibits frequently at venues in the Northeast, in
both solo and group shows at The Lodge at Woodloch/PA, Emerge Gallery/Saugerties, 510 Warren
Street/Hudson, Unison Arts/New Paltz, ArtBar Gallery/Kingston, Wired Gallery/High Falls, Gallery
Lev Shalem/Woodstock, the Woodstock School of Art and the Woodstock Artists Association and
Museum. Her work has received honors at many juried exhibitions and she has been awarded
residencies at the Cill Rialaig Project in Ireland and the Brush Creek Arts Foundation in Wyoming. She
serves on the board of the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum. maxinedavidowitz.com
