The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance’s 2021 Salon Series features a series of short-form documentaries spotlighting three local female artists as they create new works of art. Narrowsburg-based filmmaker Oriel Danielson will direct the series. Part documentary, part artist talk and demonstration, the second video in the series features a visit to the Narrowsburg, NY studio of woodworker Alexandra Climent (Narrowsburg, NY).

Climent first discovered the powerful beauty of rare tropical hardwoods exploring the jungles of Central and South America in 2009. Since then, she has dedicated her life to sustainably sourcing these woods and bringing them back to New York. 

Her woodworking craft was born out of her desire to simply highlight the natural aesthetics of these unknown and breathtaking species. Each piece she makes is a representation of the sublime beauty of this planet; and the responsibility she feels to showcase these materials justly. Alexandra is proud of her efforts in sharing the stunning power of these materials as well as active work in aiding the reforestation of the jungles she sources from.

About the filmmaker: Oriel Danielson’s filmmaking journey started in Israel and continued in Stockholm and NYC. He’s directed and edited dozens of short documentaries about art, culture and nature. Today, Danielson lives in Narrowsburg, makes films, reads theater, and writes poetry. Regarding his participation in the series, he notes “I am interested in the tactile relationship between artists and their work. My goal is to capture the process of creating an art piece in an authentic and intimate way.”
