The Laffer Gallery presents “A Cultivated Vision”

Now through - July 26

Unfortunately we will not be hosting a reception due to COVID-19

SCHUYLERVILLE — The Laffer Gallery today announced it will open a new exhibit, “A Cultivated Vision,” on Saturday, June 13, at 96 Broad Street in Schuylerville, N.Y. The exhibit will run through July 26, 2020, and will feature artwork by artists Robert Moylan, Tracy Helgeson and Regina Wickham.

“The works of Robert, Tracy and Regina are a rich reminder of the transformative power of art—to inspire, to inform, and to unite,” said Erik Laffer, owner, The Laffer Gallery. “Our hope is in each artist’s unique interpretation of nature and their surroundings we can find joy and community and cultivate a broader discussion about the role art can play in opening minds and breaking down barriers.”

The Laffer Gallery has been closed since March due to COVID-19, and due to current state and local guidance there will not be an opening reception.

“A Cultivated Vision” will be open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., from June 13 to July 26. Showings are also available by appointment.

Featured artists include...

Robert Moylan works masterfully in gouache. His panoramic landscapes are brightly colored celebrations of the rural beauty of New York’s Rensselaer and Washington counties. In the tradition of the Hudson River School, luminous sunsets and dramatic skies ride above farmhouses, barns, silos, and fields that serve as reminders of the human existence within these natural settings. Moylan’s pieces convey a view that is both vast and expansive.

Tracy Helgeson attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, majoring in graphic design before transferring to the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts), where she studied illustration. Her work strives for simplicity in color, form, composition, and subject matter. However, subtle complexities interact with her work, represented via texture, handwritten elements, and small bits of painted details.

Regina Wickham belongs to the tradition of vessel makers, working in clay and on the wheel to form containers for flowers, food, and air. Wickham’s work is known for layer and juxtaposition of color and texture…and surprise—the subtleties of proportion, stance, interaction of color and object, serendipitous melding of glaze, oxide and flame pattern.
