Frank Coletta, Art in Public Places
Clifton Park Halfmoon Public Library (Site A), August 31 - September 27, 2021
Two Years of Landscapes
This has been a difficult two years for most artists. The safest place for me to create has been out in nature. I can take off my mask and take a deep breath of freedom. The subject matter for this show is taken from the Battenkill River in Vermont, Arizona Mountains, my back yard trees, Halfmoon, N.Y. farms, the Round Lake Preserve, and Clifton Park’s Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve. All drawings were done plein air.
My medium of choice is pen & ink with some colored pencil added to heighten the subject matter when needed. I am basically a realist in love with drawing nature where ever I travel. I find it challenging to draw different geographical scenes found in Arizona as compared to the Battenkill River in Vermont. Each area has a peculiar visual language all its own. I hope you enjoy this showing of landscapes from Arizona, Vermont, and New York.
Coletta's exhibition is up for public viewing August 31 - September 27 at Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library, 475 Moe Road, Clifton Park, NY, Monday-Thursday, 9am-7pm, Friday, 9am-6pm, Saturday, 9am-5pm
