2014 Gallery News
Our next “Meet the Artists” reception is not far away! Join us March 14 from 4:00-7:00 pm as we mark the Grand Re-opening of Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery. Renovations are complete and it’s time to celebrate the new gallery space and new work from regional artists.
In addition to the regular gallery participants, past guest artists and members will also have work on display in this “inaugural” show — a thank you to everyone who supported the gallery from the very beginning. It was three years ago in March that a group of local artists met to discuss the possibility of launching a cooperative gallery!
Artists will also be available in the gallery to answer questions and discuss the artwork on Saturday and Sunday during the Mohawk Harvest and Happy Jack re-opening events.
Stone Arabia Amish Farm, an alla prima ('all at once' on location) oil painting by Janet Marie Yeates and Teapot Rising, a Prismacolor drawing by Lynda Naske.
Micropolis members Janet Marie Yeates and Lynda Naske have been juried into The Shirt Factory Small Works 2014 at the historic shirt factory in downtown Glens Falls. One of Janet's oil paintings is from last September's Plein Air—Vermont juried plein air festival. The other, also an 'alla prima' work, was painted in Stone Arabia last October. Two of Lynda Naske's prismacolor drawings of household objects from her antique collections have also been selected for the exhibition which runs from April 4 to 26.
Carriage House from the Gardens, an alla prima oil painting by Janet Marie Yeates
Janet Marie Yeates had two larger oil paintings accepted for the 16th Annual Juried Art Competition at Adirondack Artists Guild, Saranac Lake. Carriage House from the Gardens was painted on location at Plein Air–Vermont. Clearing from West to East is a view of a family orchard south of the Mohawk River on a blustery fall day.
Soul of an Iris III by Judith Plotner
Two of member Judith Plotner's pieces will be included in WHAT THE FIBER! March 3- May 2, 2014 at the West Windsor Art Center, 952 Alexander Road Princeton Junction, NJ.

Change of Space! Our artwork is currently "under wraps" as members are hard at work replacing old paneling with new drywall. Renovations to our space at Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market are part of a major expansion of Happy Jack's kitchen. See more about the kitchen here Look for news about our grand re-opening soon!
Janet Marie Yeates is showing three paintings in a juried show at VIEW, Old Forge. "Winter Air" will open on January 18 and run through April 27, 2014.
