The Art Garage: Reception for the NEW Winter Wall

Art Garage Winter Show / New Winter Wall Artist: Lucia Phillips, Hartwick

The Art Garage Winter Show embeds a "Winter Wall" section that features a different artist every three weeks. The latest Winter Wall artist, self-taught Lucia Phillips, Hartwick, will open Saturday, March 9, 4-6PM. All are welcome to attend the reception, made possible with support from Pail Shop Vineyards, Winery & Tasting Room in Fly Creek.

In addition to Phillips, the Winter Show offers works by five other artists, on view through April: Robert Ginder, Alice Hudson, Lavern Kelley, Gail Peachin and Louis Sherry.

In the winter the gallery is always open daily by appointment, between the hours of 10am and 6pm, weather permitting. Simply call 607-547-5327, text 315-941-9607 or email leartgarage@gmail.com.

ABOUT New Featured Artist on Winter Wall:  Passionate about painting, Lucia Phillips has exhibited regionally in only a handful of nontraditional venues: Sweet Sue's, Phoenicia, Cooperstown Liquor Store, and Autumn Café, Oneonta. A private collector in Fort Worth, TX is her consistent patron, and every few years purchases " a truckload of art", per Phillips, that keeps together a large body of her work. The Art Garage show, her first in an art gallery, will present a selection of her smaller paintings. They often focus on a single subject with emotional resonance for the artist: a Tabasco bottle, a basket of eggs, a trio of horses or dogs—each viscerally connected to a memory.

A seventh-generation Texan by heritage, Phillips spent her early childhood in Fort Worth, then moved to various New York State towns with her family every few years, making them permanent "outsiders," she noted. Phillips grew up surrounded by art. Her mother took them to museums and plays whenever she could, and at age 13 sent Lucia, the youngest of five, to rural central France when 13 to summer with her painter uncle, who introduced her to abstract art. Her favorite artists remain Cezanne and Van Gogh. She spent time in New Orleans, Vermont and Hawaii before marrying an artist and moving Upstate in 1987. She spent the next decade "in the shadows" of artists, working as an assistant, or posing for classes or individual artists, which she'd done since she was little.

It was when posing for Otego artist Elizabeth Nields that she had her epiphany: she too wanted to step up and create art. Rather than be the object in art, she would take charge. Philips took one art class from portrait artist Susan Goetz, Oneonta artist Betty Fraley gave her some paints. She was hooked. She made 100 paintings that first year. "I had found a way to process the emotions and memories of my life," Phillips noted. " I derive a huge amount of pleasure from ...creating new images that brings me joy."

Phillips lives in a farmhouse on a hill outside Hartwick with her husband, forester and lumberman Bruce Phillips. Her son, a self-taught artist Sam Markman, lives nearby. "I have always been a bit of a hermit, so my time is spent alone, painting and reading and writing," when they are not gardening. Seasonal farmers, they produce garlic and maple syrup to sell and raise their own food. "We are super busy during the growing season," Phillips noted, " but in the winter there is a lot of time spent indoors. I am grateful to my husband Bruce, who encourages and supports my little hobby, which has consumed every inch of space in our home and a huge amount of my time."

Following the reception, the Winter Wall and the Winter Show can be seen daily by appointment, between the hours of 10am and 6pm, seven days a week, weather permitting. Simply call 607-547-5327, text 315-941-9607 or email leartgarage@gmail.com. The last day to see Phillips art will be Friday, March 30.

The five Winter Show artists on view until the April closing include Alice Hudson (Norwich) and Lavern Kelley (Oneonta), whose estates the Art Garage represents; Louis Sherry, a newly discovered self-taught artist near Ithaca; South Worcester's Gail Peachin, and Robert Ginder (CA & Nevada). Farmer artist Kelley is arguably Otsego County's most famous artist with work in the Smithsonian, the International Museum of Folk Art, Santa Fe and Fenimore Art Museum.
