Four artists – Barney Bellinger, Caroline Ramersdorfer, Jonathan Sweet, and John Van Alstine – have a vision. They have come together in an alliance to present a visual, physical, and spiritual experience through their creations.
The ARThaus is a warehouse of contemporary art, which has an opening reception Saturday July 25 from 6-8 p.m. The exhibit will be on display from July 18th through August 9th with the artists hosting the exhibit from 11-6 p.m. each day at 4982 Lake Shore Drive, Bolton Landing NY.
Their vision is both a sum of four and four individual expressions. They hold in common overarching themes that are a confluence of understandings underscoring harmony with nature in terms of ideas about nature, respect for the integrity of natural materials, and a reverence for craftsmanship.
Nature’s textures, colors, and forms are fundamental muses for each artist. The play of light on surfaces or interiors reaffirms elemental continuities with nature. Whether the created forms are functional-the furniture artists-or aesthetic-the sculptors-the artists invite their viewers to discover, explore, and appreciate their unique visions.
