Artist Christy Rupp opens her new show in Saugerties this Saturday

There’s a moving image of a tadpole swimming upstream in murky waters on the website of Christy Rupp, whose exhibition, “Catastrophozoic,” opens at Cross Contemporary Art in Saugerties with an artist’s reception this Saturday, September 30.  There are skeletal sculptures, embossed glassware, collages and posters. An entire world of the fragile and natural is under attack from manmade objects and methodologies.

Saugerties’ gallery scene is seeking to transform the town into a must-visit destination for art aficionados. Four outstanding shows this month are clustered within two blocks. Paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures have overflowed the gallery walls and are showing up in storefront windows and inside restaurants.
