"Gil Gutiérrez brings the fullest meaning to the word, "virtuoso." Whether it  is jazz, or pure classical, he brings sensitivity and excitement to the music. Gil, my dear friend, thanks for each gorgeous note."
Doc Severinsen
"Gutierrez’s dexterity on the guitar was astounding…his sound varied from gentle harmonics to heavy strokes.

Gallery Opening Reception - Todd Samara

Todd Samara , born in Brooklyn, New York, discovered early on he had a natural ability to draw and paint. He spent eight years in the Navy working on an aircraft carrier where he was given the work of painting murals for the large spaces and continually commissioned to paint portraits of the crew and their families.

Todd studied at the Caton Rose Institute of Art, and the Arts Students League in New York City. He went on to receive his BFA at the State University of New York, New Paltz, NY.

Todd has lived in the Hudson Valley for over 30 years, observing the landscape and its inhabitants and transforming them with paint into works of great emotional intensity.

His earlier paintings were tighter, more linear and more conscious while the work of recent years seems to flow with a simple directness.

“It’s a greater satisfaction to express feeling through spontaneity and vitality. As for the future, life is always a new adventure. I try to keep a sense of mystery in my artistic development that connects me to the unknown. The road is narrow, but the view is vast.”

Washington Square at Opus 40

 

This is what Washington Square in Greenwich Village looked like on a Sunday morning in the 50s and 60s -- just a bunch of folks bringing guitars and banjos, joining together in impromptu jam sessions, or gathering around and lending their voices to a favorite song. New York's proper Parks Commissioner, Newbold Morris, described them as people who "come from miles away to display the most terrible costumes, haircuts, etc. and who play bongo drums and other weird instruments, attracting a weird public."

Well, people still love to play weird instruments, wear terrible costumes, and get together to make music. So Opus 40 is recreating those Washington Square days on the first Sunday of each month throughout the summer. Admission is free to anyone who brings an acoustic instrument.

with Kevin VanHentenryckThe Opus 40 Stone Carving Workshop is a guided half day, one day or two day session, with instruction from master sculptor Kevin VanHentenryck, designed to teach everyone the ancient art of stone carving. From concept to surface finish, both hand and pneumatic carving techniques will be covered. Whether you’re a kid or an old-timer, everyone is carving within the first twenty minutes, and everyone will take home their very own piece of the Catskills with their carving on it.

 

JOIN US – learn to work the ancient stone – and take your carving with you.It’s not as hard as you think! Art experience, or “talent” not required, and it’s FUN!!!

Kevin VanHentenryck

He is a self-taught sculptor, has been a lover of stone his whole life, and a sculptor of it since 1975. As a child he saw faces in tree bark, and carried home small stones from family vacations.

In 1975 while studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, he saw an early Ken Russell film called The Savage Messiah, about the life of sculptor Henri Gaudier, and  “...Stone is ancient when compared to humans. Even a young stone like our Catskill mountain bluestone is 360 million years old, and what we carve into the stone may last a very long time.”

VanHentenryck (known for his life size sculpture of Rip VanWinkle at the summit of Hunter Mountain) has been working for almost 30 years from his studio, Custom Sculpture in Westkill, N.Y., to produce a wide variety of sculpture, as well as the finest carved/ sculptural signs in the region.
