Although we have closed the gallery in Catskills, we will continue to do shows and to buy and sell fine art. We will also continue to represent artists who work in both representational and abstract art. We will continue to search out classic Hudson River school painters from the 19th century while also offering work by contemporary artists who still find inspiration in this style. We hope that you will take a look at our website and enjoy the variety of art that we offer.

Catskill Fine Art & Antiques presents winter themed works from talented area artists! Winter Solstice-Join us in celebrating this winter season! Included in the exhibit are paintings and pastels that celebrate the visual beauty of winter and those cold wintry days when snow fills the air and icicles glisten in the sun. Winter brings holidays, Christmas parties, family, ice skates, hot chocolate and sleds.
Jane Bloodgood-Abrams says of her work: " I seek to transcend the landscape as mere subject matter, yet use it as a tool to evoke Nature’s spiritual or emotional essence.” Jane received her Master of Fine Arts degree from SUNY New Paltz and is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America. Her work has been chosen for numerous regional, national, and international exhibitions, including the Florence Biennialle in Italy. She is the recipient of a Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation grant and has been selected as semi-finalist for the Basil H. Alkazzi $20,000 award for painting.

Demetre Bove says of her oil paintings: “Making art has always been a part of my life. Creating art is difficult with many fascinating problems to solve. I am still learning and creating.”
Laura Garramone says of her work: “Pastel is the medium of my choice because of the pure color. Pastels are extremely versatile and can produce intensely vibrant colors as well as soft, subtle shades of pale tones.” Laura is a self-taught pastel artist with both formal and informal instruction including watercolor, acrylics and mixed media. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of Greene County and everyday surroundings.For more on her work go to: http://pastelistlgarramone.wix.com/laura.
