Middletown, NY – Orange Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce an art exhibit that focuses on local farms and the seasonal harvest. Farm Art from the Wallkill River School features local artists’ colorful paintings of Orange County farms, including works created during the school’s yearlong Farm Art Trail project which paired an artist-in-residence with a partner farm. The artists exhibiting artists are Janet Howard Fatta, Lorraine Furey, Naomi Genen, Gloria Detore Mackie, Mickie MacMillan, Margaret Morales, Elizabeth Ocskay, Michael Piotrowski, Mitchell Saler, and Mary Mugele Sealfon.
The Wallkill River School, a nonprofit artists’ collective, supports its environmental mission to save open spaces and small farms by encouraging its artists to create art based on the regional rural landscape. Farm scenes include vernacular architecture and barns, farmer’s market stands, pumpkin patches, cows, and trees in changing seasons. Artworks will be available for purchase. The opening reception with the artists will be held on Friday, September 19 from 4:00-6:00pm at Orange Regional Medical Center located at 707 East Main Street, Middletown on the ground floor gallery adjacent to the conference center. Light farm-to-table refreshments will be served. The exhibit will remain on view until October 31.
Farm Art from the Wallkill River School is part of Orange Regional’s ongoing program of changing exhibits. The Gallery at ORMC is free and open to the public.
