New Hope area artists open studios to share work

Posted

Kirby Fredendall and Alex Damevski will open their studios at 1448 Street Road, near New Hope, to share new work from noon until 5 p.m. June 11, 12 and 13.

Kirby Fredendall is a painter raised in Carversville amidst the vibrant arts culture that has defined the area since artists first arrived to establish residence on the old farms and in the eclectic river towns.

Her most recent work explores love of the color and light in the landscape and nearly always involves a body of water, whether from her favorite lakes of the Adirondack mountains or her travels to coastal areas.

Fredendall enjoys the manipulation of materials and how process in itself contributes to the life and form of the final image.


Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain-laden clouds. Areas of sky, water and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time.

Alex Damevski is a photographer born in 1960 in the former Yugoslavia. Damevski and his family emigrated to the Rochester, N.Y., in 1968, where he grew up and then attended Syracuse University and the Temple University Dental School.

Damevski is drawn to nearly every subject for his photography. He has an eye for everything from the landscape to the figure. Everything from the textures on the Steel Stacks in Bethlehem to the landscapes of the Adirondacks to the simple setting on the table find their way into his images. For this event he is curating paired images and has titled this body of work “Pairings.”
