Glimpses of Our Landscape – Black and White and Color

November 2, 2024 @ 4:00 pm January 11, 2025 @ 3:00 pm

Come out to see ‘Glimpses of Our Landscape’, a duo-show featuring work by Amy Silberkleit and Natalie Wargin. The stark intricacies of Amy Silberkleit’s lithograph prints and the fantastical elements of Natalie Wargin’s paintings explore the magic and wonder of the forest. The show will be on display in the Roxbury Arts Group’s Walter Meade Gallery from November 2 – January 11, with an opening reception on Saturday, November 2, from 4-6pm.

Amy Silberkleit is an artist in the Northern Catskills. Her work is based on the forests, mountains, roads, trails and natural objects found near her home. The extraordinary beauty of the region, the variety of plants, forms and textures, the dramatic changes from season to season are an inexhaustible source of subjects for her work.

She draws detailed landscapes on limestone blocks and hand-prints limited editions in her lithography studio. The tonal range made possible by the lithography stone’s fine texture lends itself perfectly to highly detailed representational drawings

Amy has a B.A. in printmaking and a Certificate in Natural Science Art and Illustration from the New York Botanical Gardens. Her drawings and prints have been exhibited in juried shows, galleries and museums, including the Arkell Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gallery Store and the Albany Institute, which has two of her pieces in its permanent collection. Her awards include the John Noble Lithography Award from SAGA; the Woodstock Artist Association and Museum Annual Print Edition and Sheila Bloodgood awards;, the Deborah Geurtze Award for Printmaking, Cooperstown Art Association.

Amy is a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists and an Active Member of The Woodstock Artists Association.

Natalie Wargin is a nature and landscape painter based in Cottekill, New York. Her paintings are narratives, each telling a story of the Hudson Valley landscape, focusing especially on the birds and animals that cross her path daily and the sense of inclusiveness in wild nature that these encounters create. Following a move from Chicago to upstate New York she discovered a completely different and surprising environment. Concrete and highrises gave way to woodland and farmland and mountains. The connection Natalie feels to her new home and to all the creatures moving around her not only places her firmly in the wide world but has also taught her to open her eyes and connect.
