We are pleased to present an exhibit of Watercolors by local artist Staats Fasoldt through March 21. The works are situated among the stacks in the 1798 library building as well as in the new Children’s Wing.
Staats Fasoldt is Executive Vice President of the Woodstock School of Art’s Board of Directors, and has taught painting and drawing there for more than 35 years. He is an active member of the Woodstock Artist’s Association and a member of The Art Society of Kingston. He is also a member and former Coordinator of Longreach Arts, the Hudson Valley’s premier mobile Artists Co-op.
Staats has an MFA in painting from SUNY, New Paltz. He has had numerous one-person and group exhibits displaying his Watercolors and has won many awards for his work. Staats’ paintings are interpretations of nature that stress spontaneity as method.
He has published several books on his paintings and is represented by the Mark Gruber Gallery. His one-of-a-kind originals feature the hand of the artist, the crisp rag watercolor paper and the highest quality DaVinci artist’s watercolors. The paintings in the library show are also available for purchase.
“We are delighted to present this beautiful body of work as our winter exhibit, and thank Staats for sharing his paintings with our library patrons,” said Diane DeChillo, Library Program Manager.
