"The Gratitude Project": Paintings and Poetry of the Poets Laureate by Hilda Demsky

“The Gratitude Project”: Paintings and Poetry of the Poets Laureate by Hilda Demsky

November 1st – November 29

I’m a Larchmont artist (lived here for 50 years). member of Mamaroneck Artists Guild, have given workshops and am very involved in the Larchmont community. On Thanksgiving 2020, The New York Times invited poets laureate of the United States to submit, in 100 words or less, “what the people in their States would be thankful for” after the difficult year of COVID 19. More than thirty State poets laureate responded. After reading the submitted verses, I felt deeply grateful to each of the poets laureate for their beautiful words. I was inspired to create a series of paintings interpreting each State poet’s submission to capture visually the spirit of the poetry.  My oil paintings are on 20” X 16” on canvas and contain geographic elements, symbolic use of color, and a subliminal outline of the State within it. My proposed art exhibit, entitled “The Gratitude Project”, highlights The New York Times articles, the responding poets laureate poems, and the paintings they have inspired.

Twelve Tangents - CIV Series 404 & 505 by Ariadne Pilarinos

Twelve Tangents – CIV Series 404 & 505 by Ariadne Pilarinos

September 1st – September 29th

Closing Reception: Saturday, September 23rd from 2pm-4pm

I am a highly experienced and passionate fine artist, working since the early 70s specializing and fine-tuning my unique style in the discipline of original acrylic paintings on stretched canvas.

I studied under the tutelage of Arun Bose at Lehman College where I was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. I developed my artistic abilities working with and curating fine art editions with master printers at a stone lithographic and a silkscreen atelier. I further broadened my artistic education with textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and went on to create custom carpet designs for bespoke clients at Patterson, Flynn and Martin.

I first start with a detailed sketch to visualize my final painting. With a grid I use a compass to draw out my motif on canvas. My motif is based on twelve tangents which I repeat throughout the grid revealing a geometric pattern of interlocking circles. I use the principals of the color wheel to reveal mesmerizing colors that are then applied and manipulated into a series of paintings. Through the mixing of acrylic paint with acrylic gel mediums, metallic paint, iridescent paint, glazing and varnishing techniques are what gives my finished paintings their distinct look.
