MILLBROOK ARTISTS EXHIBIT “LANDSCAPES INTERPRETED” AT STANFORD GRANGE

STANFORDVILLE, NY, Jan. 30 – Millbrook painter Daniel F. Gliubizzi and photographer Ann D. Wilkinson will exhibit their work Feb. 15 – 16 and Feb. 22 – 23 from 12 – 5pm at the Stanford Grange #808, 6043 Route 82, Stanfordville, NY. Creative Crossings, the community-based arts group dedicated to all aspects of art, will host the two-weekend Exhibition and an Artist Reception on Saturday, Feb. 15th from 5 – 7pm at the Red Devon Restaurant in Bangall.

An artist and naturalist living in Millbrook for over a decade, Dan has also worked as a muralist, sculptor and designer – most recently for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Today he paints local landscapes, animals and treetops in oil, acrylic and gouache in his Millbrook studio.  For more visit Gliubizzi.com.

A lifelong photographer, Ann has spent almost 40 years nestled in the rural beauty of Dutchess County. Photographing professionally since 2003, she captures the natural beauty of the environment in country settings, inspiring landscapes and the big skies of the Catskill and Berkshire Mountains.  “Photography is casting a net towards life – our surroundings – and capturing that moment into some kind of frame and bringing it home for the viewer,” says Ann.  For more visit StoneFoxPhoto.com.

All events are free and open to the public, with donations accepted to fund the refurbishment of the baby grand piano in the Stanford Town Hall auditorium. The 2014 Winter/Spring Creative Crossings event schedule will include local sculptors, photographers, composers and other artists.
