Reflections, Paintings on Canvas and
Mylar by Hilda Green Demsky
From March 7 to March 25, the Mamaroneck Artist Guild, 1987 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont, will host an exhibit by Hilda Green Demsky called Reflections.
The artist has painted beautiful landscapes of Westchester County for fifty years. Her art reflects her love of nature in all its seasons. She is especially fond of the subject of water as a never-ending inspiration for her art. The rocky coasts of Westchester and Maine, where she spends time in the summer, can be seen in her paintings. Many of her canvases are created “en plain air” at the Sheldrake Environmental Center and at Manor Park in Larchmont.
Some paintings on exhibition were created for her Arts Westchester award to paint the Bronx River as a great community resource.
The exhibit also contains a few paintings on Mylar. Rolled into three-dimensional. layers, they shimmer like water dappled by sun.
The artist is noted for capturing the movement and spirit of water environments. Her reflections of nature are fresh insights of whatever she sees and paints.
“Demsky’s waterfalls put us back in touch with an essential part of our own natures. Elemental and powerful, they urge us to celebrate the natural world that came before us and will be here long after we are gone,” describes Eleanor Heartney, contributing editor of Art in America.
Demsky is the recipient of many national awards, including The Fulbright Fellowship, the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the Christa McAuliffe Award and the Andy Warhol Award.
The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday, March 11 from 3 to 5 and closing reception on Saturday, March 25 from 3 to 5:00pm. The artist will give a talk on Wednesday, March 15 at 2:00 p.m.
Her 60-year retrospective book, “The Flow of the Artist’s Life and Work” will be available for sale.
