Painting & photo exhibit opening at Chace-Randall

Andes — Chace-Randall Gallery presents “Accord,” new paintings by Michael Fauerbach and photography by Christine Rodin from July 17-August 16. A reception for the artists will be held Saturday, July 18 from 5-7 p.m.
Working in acrylic on paper, Michael Fauerbach at once captures the seeming lost integrity of many tumbledown Catskill Mountain barns and sheds, as well as the well worn nature of those still of purpose and respect. This new body of work incorporates a beautiful softness of palette and accentuates our Catskill landscape.
Denver resident Fauerbach studied painting, printmaking and illustration at the School of Visual Arts, NYC, in the early ’60s and began exhibiting his realist paintings in NYC shortly thereafter. His exhibition history includes the NoHo Gallery, NYC, Cork Gallery, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and The Catskill Center Erpf Gallery, Arkville, among others. He is collected by Robert Wood Johnson College, New Brunswick, NJ, and the Purchase Dean Library Collection of Rutgers University.
Christine Rodin renders both still life imagery in limited edition sepia-toned silver gelatin prints and landscape Epson inkjet prints on watercolor paper. The still life photographs are shot with a Diana; the landscapes with an even older (undisclosed) camera that renders a tiny negative, then scanned and printed to the format of whatever antique frame Rodin has found while combing lower Manhattan. In either format the work is gorgeously timeless. This new body of work incorporates several larger format landscapes than collectors have seen in the past.
From New York City, Rodin attended Boston University and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where her work is a part of their permanent collection. She had a one-person show at the Nicholas Davies Gallery in New York City in 1997 and was part of two group shows at the Carrie Haddad Gallery, Hudson, New York, in 1995 and 2003. She has been featured in articles in Idea Magazine (Japan), Popular Photography, Zoom Magazine, and Art Matters, (the magazine of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston).
