March 28, 2013 - Mohawk Currents
GLOVERSVILLE — Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery will host a meet-the-artists reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 5. Special guest artist Jonathan Swartwout, a painter and creator of Adirondack-style furniture, will be on hand to present a collection of his pieces.
Swartwout, a Johnstown native, is a self-taught furniture maker who describes his style as rustic interpretation of classic design, according to a news release. Each piece is custom-designed and one-of-a-kind. His pieces typically range from small tables and stands to large sideboards and cabinets. Swartwout won the Makers Choice Award for his work at the 2010 Rustic Fair at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. Most of his paintings depict landscapes or wildlife, often in the Adirondacks.
Also on display will be a new selection of original artwork by Micropolis artists Laurie Cerasia, Ruth Crotty, Michele Drozd, Susy Easterly, Katherine Ehle, Frances Gaffney, Cheryl Gutmaker, Alexandra Higgins, Linda Hinkle, Michael Intrabartola, Dragan Konakov, Betsy Moore-Galinsky, Lynda Naske, Judy Olson, Judith Plotner, Bradford Smith, Sandy Smith and Janet Marie Yeates.
These artists work in a variety of media and produce original paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber collages, mixed media, woodwork, glass, digital art, sculpture, jewelry and pottery.
The reception will be free and open to the public. Micropolis Gallery is inside Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market, 30 N. Main St. For more information about the gallery and membership information for artists, go to www.micropolisgallery.com. Membership applications can be downloaded from the website.
