Micropolis Meet the Artists Reception
with Special Guest Artist Jonathan Swartwout
Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery will hold a “Meet the Artists” reception on Friday, April 5, at the gallery. Special guest artist Jonathan Swartwout, painter and creator of Adirondack style furniture, will be on hand to present a collection of his pieces.
Jon, a Johnstown native, is a self-taught furniture maker who describes his style as rustic interpretation of classic design. Each piece is custom designed and one of a kind. His pieces typically range from small tables and stands to large sideboards and cabinets. Jon won “the Makers Choice Award” for his work at the 2010 Rustic Fair at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY. Most of his paintings depict the Adirondack landscape and wildlife of the area.
The reception will be held between 5 and 7pm and is free and open to the public.
