Olive senior art on display at CWC


Margaretville — Twenty-four paintings and three photographs created by members of the Olive Senior Art Class are now on view at the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC), 905 Main Street, Margaretville.

The work will be displayed through the end of April and can be seen weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Senior Art Class, sponsored by the Town of Olive, has been in existence for five years. A dozen aspiring artists, under the facilitation of Judith Boggess, have been meeting Monday mornings at the Reservoir Methodist Church. These weekly sessions have created bonds of friendship and some very fine paintings. A sampling of the work of each participant is on display at the CWC.

The paintings extol the beauty of Olive, Ulster County and beyond. Living in the Catskills provides the artist with an endless source of inspiring landscapes. The Ashokan Reservoir, the Esopus Creek, Kenozia Lake (also known as Temple’s Pond) and the majestic vista of High Point are some of the local scenes captured on canvas.

Artists contributing work to this show include Christina Gardner, Janette Kahil, Evelyn Konjas, Lois Ostapzuk, Christine Benardcik, Jane McCabe, Sue Cocozza, Carol LaMonda, Ann Fitzsimmons, Judith Boggess and Gert Kaiser.
