By RG Team

Published September 1, 2022

From contemplative charcoal drawings dealing with the divine and landscapes that evoke the transcendent beauty of nature to a fantastic selection of small works of art, our Fall 2022 program gives everyone something to look forward to.

There’s a lot of art to look forward to this Fall.

The exhibitions coming up this Fall at the R Gallery at Arlene's feature some of the most talented artists from the Captial Region, and much, much more.

October 7th - 29th 

Simeon Youngmann uses drawing’s notational and provisional vernacular to reanimate Christian religious iconography. His drawings form a body of exploratory research, mining and re-presenting religious visual history––but they are also a practical extension of his own faith. As a Protestant Christian, Youngmann’s drawings help bring clarity to what he believes, exploring how images of the sacred may still intersect our contemporary experience. 

The exhibition features 24 mixed media charcoal drawings including the monumental Pentimento (Drawing for a Hermit Crab), 50x32”.

November 6th - 28th 

As a plein air landscape painter, James Cramer is confronted with many choices and weather conditions. He is at the mercy of the elements which can make for interesting painting sessions. Looking at the landscape is his inspiration. To begin to see shapes, colors, and values. Cramer strives for the synthesis of observation (seeing), internalization (contemplation), and application of materials. To experience the spirit of the landscape. As he sees it and suggests to the viewer the truth and beauty which surrounds us. 

The exhibition features 17 oil paintings featuring Cramer's love of upstate New York.



December 9, 2022- January 07, 2023

 This exhibition is devoted to artwork done on the small scale. Each piece will be 8”x10”, unframed, or smaller. Small works are a great way to showcase a wide variety of art and hopefully find them the perfect home. Supporting our local art community is important to Arlene’s as well as providing meaningful exposure to artists' work. We are tirelessly working on building an engaged audience of individuals who are serious about discovering locally made art.

We are excited to work with juror Rebecca Zeh, a fine artist and curator from Ballston Lake, NY. Rebecca is a member of Arlene’s staff and curator at the R Gallery at Arlene’s.
