The Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Kaaterskill Fine Arts and Crafts Gallery proudly presents “One World at a Time”, a new exhibit of collage and photography by Elizabeth Hall-Dukin and Maggie Uhalde. This show will be on display from September 30 to November 4. The artists’ reception on Saturday, October 1, from 1-3 pm is free and open to the public.
Both artists in this exhibit have multi-media talents. They are accomplished writers, communications professionals, and artists. Uhalde is a musician, poet, spoken word performer, and event curator at the Catskill Mountain Foundation. This is her debut in the visual arts where she combines her photography collage and poetry.
Hall-Dukin is a historian, curator, and photographer. She is interested in the visual and historical/cultural implications of photography. Her approach to photography is as material culture, allowing the documentary nature of images and the stories they tell to come into focus. Her fascination with images serving as a sort of archival database started at a young age when she learned about her deceased grandmother through her mother’s photographs and notes.
The works in this show reflect both artists’ fascination with words and images. Hall describes the collaboration as a “great experience”. Their works are a combination of words and imagery. “One World at a Time,” depicts multiple vignettes, and snapshots of everyday life.
