From January 24 through March 21, the Columbia County Council for the Arts presents “On & Off the Wall,” a juried sculpture show at the CCCA Gallery. The show’s juror, John Cooley, is a sculptor from Chatham, NY. He has displayed his work in numerous juried shows in the Hudson Valley, Massachusetts and Michigan. He was educated at Syracuse University (BA & MA) and has a PhD from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He is currently Professor Emeritus of English and Environmental Studies at Western Michigan University. Cooley says: “ I am attracted to three-dimensional art and typically work with wood or other natural materials. I am drawn to the edges of roads and fields, to dilapidated barns and abandoned factories, rich patinas formed by layers of paint or varnish and to the ways in which time alters surfaces with weathering, fading and blending of colors.”
Exhibiting Artists: C. Michael Bufi, Dot Chast, Janet Cooper, Steven Dono, Julia Fingar, Dennis Herbert, Ellen Jouret-Epstein, Scott Keidong, Jack Kelly, Steve Kubicek, Clarke Olsen, Daniel Region, RJ Rosegarten, Marlene Vidabor.
