Peter Bradley at Emerge Gallery

One of a handful of enterprising Color Field painters who took up acrylic gel paint for its own unique properties in the early 1970s, and hence influenced entire schools of modern abstract painters throughout his 50-plus year career (including the New New Painters of the 1980s and 1990s), Bradley will discuss his various careers as an artist, a gallerist, and a social mover in a special Woodstock School of Art event this Sunday, May 19, held in collaboration with Saugerties’ Emerge Gallery at its home at 228 Main Street in Saugerties.
