“Double Vision: Color & Line”
Cadoff & Demsky at Mamaroneck Artists Guild Gallery
September 4 to 22, 2018
Color, energy and joy suffuse Hilda Green Demsky’s oil paintings on canvas and transparent Mylar.
Jennifer Cadoff creates meticulous abstract drawings and collages that are by turns whimsical,
meditative or eye-popping (above right).
Together, these artists are excited to welcome the fall season at Mamaroneck Artists Guild with their show “Double Vision: Color & Line.”
For the last several years, Ms Cadoff has worked almost exclusively on paper, using ink, watercolor and sometimes thread and other materials to explore the tension between energy and entropy, control and disarray. Her drawings rely on a personal language of marks that include scribble, hatch marks, tiny circles, grids and dots. Her work has been included in Art of The Northeast (AoNE) at Silvermine Arts in New Canaan, CT; the Non-Member Graphics/Photography show at Salmagundi in New York City; “America Through Artists’ Eyes” at the State Museum in Trenton, New Jersey; and “Jersey Women Artists Now” at Montclair State College. A long-time New Jersey resident, Ms Cadoff is excited to be making connections – and finding new inspirations for her work – in New Rochelle, where she now lives, and in the broader Westchester community.
Ms Demsky is a prolific painter with an exploratory spirit who moves confidently between styles and
techniques. Many of her recent Mylar paintings, for example, are three-dimensional. Ms Demsky is inspired
by nature, particularly the ocean and forests, and by the cosmos. She favors shimmery blues and contrasting
bright colors. “I feel energized by the movement, reflections and color of water. I hear music in the rustling
of the trees.” Ms Demsky has received many national awards, including The Fulbright Fellowship to the
Netherlands, The National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship to Italy, the Christa McAuliffe Fellowship in NY.
She was awarded the Andy Warhol Residency, Acadia National Park Residency, The Ragdale Foundation
Residency and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency. This past July she was painting new work
for this show at a summer residency at the Golden Apple Residency in Maine. Ms Demsky lives in Larchmont
and paints in her studio in Port Chester.
The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday Sept. 8 from 3-6 pm.
The artists will have a gallery “walk and talk” on Saturday Sept. 22 at 2 pm.
