PSU satisfactory brings arts, crafts from nearby and far

PLATTSBURGH — From a plateau of a Adirondacks to a gardens of France, creativity in several fields was on arrangement during a SUNY Plattsburgh Arts and Crafts Fair during a Field House over a weekend.

Dick Brogowski would know. The Plattsburgh photographer has trafficked nearby and distant — and brought his camera with him wherever he has gone.

His counter during a Arts and Crafts satisfactory was full of his photographs. In fact, he concurred that a volume of register he has mostly prevents a work from being profitable. However, he is altered to continue by his adore of photography.



Photography began as a hobby for Brogowski, who was a high propagandize jaunty director. However, as time went on, it came to play an increasingly vast purpose in his life.

“My camera is always with me,” he said.

But asked where impulse comes from, he smiled enigmatically. “I don’t know.” After a contemplative silence, he concluded: “It’s a right place during a right time—or going behind countless times to a same place.”

His work includes examples of both methods.

An pattern of a confidant orange lily with an shimmering Japanese beetle resting on one of a petals looked like a box of a photographer being in a right place during a right time.

A willing pattern of autumn leaflet reflecting in still waters was, Brogowski explained, an pattern combined by going behind countless times to a right place. The sketch was taken during a Plattsburgh reservoir, and Brogowski estimated that it took 20 trips to find a impulse where a conditions were only right.



For painter Sandra Young of Dickinson, artistic impulse is all about anticipating places and scenes that she loves. “You’ve got to feel it,” she said.

Her media embody watercolors, pastels, coop and ink, and oils. But whatever collection she is using, she believes that a adore for her work is always important.

Young likens a artistic routine to gardening. “You can plant a flower, though if we don’t adore a flower, you’re not going to take caring of it.”

For potter Barbara Mitchell of Guilderland, impulse can infrequently come from qualification shows like a one during Plattsburgh, where she can pronounce with other artists and see their work.

Mitchell attended a uncover in a past, though had not finished so during a past dual years since a dates had coincided with a uncover closer to home. “This year, a weekend worked out,” she said, and she was pleased. “It’s a really good show.”

Most of Mitchell’s work is finished on a potter’s wheel, and she enjoys creation her possess glazes as well. “I examination with opposite colors,” she said, observant that she generally likes earth tones.

Lately, she has been incorporating melted potion in some of her pots. “Melting potion is kind of fun. we like to play.”



The advantages of carrying sundry theme matter in sparking creativity is something Dick Brogowski can also pronounce about.

Along with a Plattsburgh reservoir, photographs that Brogowski had on arrangement during his counter prisoner such internal scenes as Gunboat Island. He had photographed a island underneath a new “super moon,” and a light had incited a waters of Lake Champlain to glass silver.

Other images were from points over afield.

An pattern of a vessel with white sails gliding opposite a waters past a sole palm tree was a observance of a outing to Key West.

However, Brogowski’s favorite outing was a tour to France, that enclosed a revisit to Claude Monet’s gardens.

Brogowski’s mother is a docent during a Plattsburgh State Art Museum, and a outing was for docents. Brogowski accompanied his wife.

The sketch that has turn Brogowski’s “signature” was taken on this trip. It is a pattern of Claude Monet’s gardens during Giverny, in a French countryside.

The eminent Impressionist artist designed a gardens himself with a purpose of portrayal them. Because of his mindfulness with Japanese art, he worked with a Japanese gardener and enclosed an East Asian footbridge as partial of a design.

Brogowski’s sketch shows sun-dappled flowers of periwinkle blue and stately purple, behind with rest a H2O lilies that Monet so desired to paint. In a background, a Japanese overpass is visible, nestled underneath willow trees.

“Monet knew where a colors were going to be.” It was “very special,” Brogowski felt, to use his possess art of photography in a midst of Monet’s dear gardens.

Creative impulse can be found in many places — as many during a Arts and Crafts Fair could testify.
