This painting, as well as many others created by George Van Hook, will be exhibited during the show “George Van Hook, An American Impressionist” at Stone Quarry Hill Art Park. The exhibition, which is also being presented by The Gallery of CNY and sponsored by The Richard Mather Fund and Joseph A. Stagnitti, Jr., will run from Thursday, June 14 through Sunday, July 27 in the John and Virginia Winner Memorial Art Gallery.
“Our future depends on the preservation of the landscape. Short of the National Parks, the family farm best provides that,” said Van Hook, who now resides in Cambridge, where he raised his family and maintains his studio.
Van Hook has generously donated a painting valued at $1,500 to SQHAP, which will be raffled at the end of the exhibition. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase for $10 each at the opening reception in the gallery or the Art Park offices. Call 655-3196 for more information.
In addition to the exhibition, George Van Hook will be conducting a workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 16. Artists interested in working alongside Van Hook while painting en plein air at the Art Park are asked to preregister with the Art Park by calling 655-3196 before June 11. The cost of the workshop is $90 (members of the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park receive a 10 percent discount).
