Book Reading at Skene – June 3rd, 1PM

Meet the author Simona David –
HOW ART IS MADE
June 3rd at 1 PM at Skene Memorial Library

Learn about the place where American art was born through a series of conversations with some of the world’s most accomplished artists who live and work in the Catskill Mountains, upstate New York.

How Art is Made: In the Catskills is a collection of interviews with some of the world’s most accomplished artists who live and work in the Catskill Mountains, New York. Five painters and illustrators, two ceramicists and printmakers, one sculptor, one weaver, and one writer discuss what inspires and moves them, what draws them to their medium of choice, what materials they use, how they approach a new artistic project, how they deal with setbacks, and how they celebrate success. Nine are formally trained at prestigious art schools; one is self-taught. What they all have in common is a rigorous studio practice, discipline, and the desire and curiosity to learn new things, and share them with the world.

“We see how these artists, building on our region’s strong cultural history, enrich us for generations to come. As America’s first wilderness, and birthplace of the Hudson River School of Art, the Catskills have taught America how to value and appreciate the nature that is part of the fiber of our nation.” – Jeff Senterman, Executive Director, The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development
“By embedding herself in the studios and workshops where artists create in the Catskills, Simona David lends us rare insight into how their original perspectives are re-shaping our rural neighborhoods for the better.” – Bradley Diuguid, Executive Director, Catskill Art Society
