Dual show has ‘bonding’ visuals

"Wilderstein" by Margaret Moebius

     (PNAN-NY) – When we think of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, and the greats and grands formed from these unions, the word family describes the association.

     However families are not just about biological; they are also created such as, in the case of the Cross River Fine Art members and Betsy Jacaruso, where over the years they united in a study of art in Betsy’s studio in Red Hook. On Saturday, January 8, the public is invited to the opening “reunion” of this family and to meet their “off-springs” at the Arts Society of Kingston from 5:00-8:00 pm. For more information, see www.askforarts.org.

"Amber Sky" by Hana Gordon

     The dual exhibitions titled, “A Solo Show by Betsy Jacaruso” will be in the Lounge Gallery and the “Cross River Fine Art” opens in the Main Gallery, spotlighting the works of Barbara Bergin, Ellen Crimmins, Joanne Cuttler, Deborah Dewan, Claudia Engel, Hana Gordon, Mary Anne McCormack, Jim McFarland, Nathan Milgrim, Margaret Moebius, Ann Moring, Judith Pedatella, Elisabeth Prenot, Elaine Ring, Ed Travis and Francoise Ursat. Both shows remain on view January 29, 2011. 

"Hudson River" by Betsty Jacaruso

     Members of the Cross River Fine Art are watercolorists, who reside in the Hudson River Valley. Viewers will find their paintings, whether still life, botanicals or landscapes, reflect the beauty and sensibility of the region. For more information, see www.crossriverfineart.com.

    With her roots in Dutchess County New York, artist and educator Jacaruso initially studied in Switzerland, but also graduated from Dutchess Community College and the Pratt Institute of Art and Design. Known for her large watercolor botanicals, Dakota Lane of the Woodstock Times wrote about her landscapes, “Betsy’s paintings of Rhinebeck farms and river views are idyllic without being sentimental, depicting simple rhythms of growth and a peaceful interconnectedness between the manmade and the organic.” Today Betsy can be found in her studio and gallery at the Chocolate Factory in Red Hook and the Barrett Art Center in Poughkeepsie.  For more information, see www.betsyjacarusostudio.com.
