There will be an opening reception for both exhibitions at DVAA, located at 37 Main St, Narrowsburg, NY, on Saturday, February 11th, 2022, from 4–6 PM.

Robyn Almquist | The Space Between You and Me On View Feb 11th - Mar 26th Opening Reception: February 11th, 4–6 PM Artist Talk scheduled for February 25th, please see website for details. Robyn Almquist combines painting, collage, and printmaking to confront the intractable subjects of environmental destruction, gun violence, wealth disparity, political polarization, and power. According to the artist, "despite new technology and creative thinking, the current power structure ensures that solutions to these problems will not be found." She states, "The solution is love and compassion— not money and power. Our society has reached the tipping point, and love and compassion seem to be losing." Almquist attempts to make a difference by creating a dialogue between those who value love and community and those who admire power and greed. Robyn Almquist is a multi-faceted artist, publisher, and curator living and working in Livingston Manor. She is the founder and creative director of ArtKill Catskill magazine. Almquist is deeply involved with Catskill Art Space (CAS), through her work on the board, teaching CAS Kids, and as Interim Executive Director. She received her BA in Studio Art from Colorado College. Almquist's work regularly appears in group shows at DVAA and throughout the Sullivan Catskills. Allison Maletz | Abundance On View Feb 11th - Mar 26th Opening Reception: February 11th, 4–6 PM Artist talk scheduled for March 18th, please see website for details. Allison Maletz presents a series of watercolor paintings celebrating the thriving wild ecosystem in Sullivan County. These life-size watercolors depict the plethora of native flora and fauna, along with its pests and invasive species, which complete our gardens, public spaces, and conversations. Maletz' style teeters on the edge of botanical observations while embracing all the nuances and possibilities of her medium: watercolor. These paintings are her effort to convey gratitude – to the land, the creatures, this place – through all its complexities. Allison Maletz is a contemporary mixed-media artist living and working between Barryville and New York City. She received her BFA from the RISD and her MFA at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. Maletz is a Professor of Drawing at Marymount Manhattan College and teaches watercolor and drawing classes online through 92nd St Y, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Lessonface. Her first New York City solo show, "Together," was at the Christopher Henry Gallery in 2013. Other notable exhibitions include the Liverpool Biennial, Zoo Art Italy, The Royal Watercolor Society in London, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the National Arts Club, the Denny Gallery, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Fresh Window, and the Florence Griswold Museum.
