Johnstown’s Naske featured at Gloversville’s Micropolis Gallery
GLOVERSVILLE — Micropolis Cooperative Gallery recently announced a new show featuring the artwork of Johnstown resident Lynda Naske. The show will run through the end of August.
A reception will take place on Aug. 12 between 4 and 7 p.m.
Naske is a colored pencil artist, born and raised in rural upstate New York. Her fascination with colored pencil began when she was a young mother waiting for her teenage daughters at sports practices.
In her artist’s statement, Naske wrote, “As I sat in my car with my drawing board propped on the steering wheel and a box of Prismacolor pencils by my side, I became fascinated with the possibilities to be found at the tip of a simple pencil. My work is representational and seeks to capture the sudden flash of magic when everyday things are transformed by a change of light and shadow. These moments have provided an endless source of inspiration and fresh delight during all my years as an artist.”
Naske recently began to also use pastel and oil media to express her vision. Her artwork has won many awards and has been shown in numerous juried exhibitions in upstate New York and Vermont, as well as in seven solo shows. She is one of the founding members of Micropolis which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The show which runs through the end of August also includes the artwork of all Micropolis artists. Paintings, drawings, pastels, photographs, fiber art, mixed media, art glass, digital art, jewelry, pottery, woodland collages, baskets and fine art cards can be found in the gallery.
The gallery, located inside Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market, 30 N. Main St., Gloversville, is open Monday through Saturday.
