Meet the 4 featured artists at the opening of our annual botanical show.
A native of New York City, Ebneth’s mixed-media pieces are inspired by landscape, music, and memory. His paintings and works on paper are layered with found and personal ephemera, text, and mark making. He studied fine art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and The Art Students League in New York City, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The School of Visual Arts, NY. His artwork has been exhibited throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City, and the East End of Long Island NY.
Sherry’s work—both painting and pottery—is beautiful, earthy, and energetic. It brings the viewer into her garden and surrounding landscape where she gets her inspiration.
Meeks enjoyed a successful career as an interior designer before retiring in 2003, which gave her the freedom to focus on her life-long passion for making art. She studied at Chastain Arts Center in Atlanta and later joined the ArtWorks studio at the Westside YMCA in New York City.
Lincer grew up drawing and composing stories on the stoops of her native Queens, NY. She studied English and fine art in college, and went on to a career in journalism and communications. While still engaged in her writing, she returned to her intense love of creating art. She paints abstract florals, landscapes, and portraits on canvas and vintage wood, and also makes small collages. She says that she is most in touch with her thoughts and feelings when immersed in the blank canvas or the blank page—drawn to color, texture, whimsy, and the joy of mark making. Her work has been exhibited at the Martinez Gallery, Clement Art Gallery and Fence Show Select in Troy, NY, the Albany Center Gallery, and Saratoga Arts. She resides in the Albany area.
Sabino’s desire as an artist/photographer is to create images that have a painterly and luminous quality. She is drawn to flora and fauna illuminated by natural light. Using lenses that allow for extreme close ups to the subject, she aspires to capture the hidden beauty of each living object with a unique perspective. Working instinctually, her work is intimate and from this she says she derives the greatest pleasure in her artistry. She has exhibited her photographs in the Hudson Valley and Berkshires.
