Artists' Reception on Saturday, November 8, 5-8pm.
Please join us!

Born in 1956, Moffett was raised in Port Washington, NY, Paris, France and Brandon, Vermont. He studied art, music and French literature at Reed College
in Portland, Oregon, and at the Institute for American Universities in
Aix-en-Provence, France. More recently, he studied time-based mediums
and electronic art (video, animation, computer music) in the iEAR mfa program
at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He explains:

"While I am interested in all forms of expression, painting has been a mainstay
for me as its requirements remain somewhat primitive: ... an attempt to find stillness and quiet in the fleeting mesmer of everyday life--an attempt to distill
and concentrate energy by the simplest of means."

Along with the work in CLOSE, Moffett's work can be seen in Waxworks, a solo exhibition currently at the Christine Price Gallery Fine Arts Center at Castleton State College, Castleton, VT, or online at moffko.com.

Born in NYC, Wendy Holmes first studied aesthetics in an independent study with painters and photographers at Amherst College, then with Minor White at MIT in Cambridge, Mass. She has taught at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in NYC, and, among other places, at the photography workshops at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY. She discusses her recent work:

"After 35 years of working in black and white photography, I discovered the new color printmaking techniques made available through inkjet printing, sometimes called gicleé, using beautiful papers and pigment-based inks. The resulting palette of colors and overall mood of the image are startlingly satisfying to me.
At the same time about five years ago now, I also began experimenting with combining my photographs into collages, which has been a radical opening of possibilities. Getting up CLOSE with my camera has allowed me to explore the color of the natural world in a fresh and abstract way. I'm looking forward to seeing Mark's and my work hang together as I know we have a lot to learn from each other."

Holmes' work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Art Houston, the
Vassar Art Museum, the Bibiliothèque Nationale, the NJ State Museum, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and many private collections.

Gallery 345 has been on Warren Street in Hudson, NY for over a year; it is a cooperative gallery run by three local artists: Martina Angela Muller, Laura Summer, and Wendy Holmes Noyes who organize the monthly shows together.

The December show will be "Small Works," exhibiting work by all artists who have shown in the gallery over the past year. The pieces will be excellent for holiday gifts. Please plan to visit us also in December.
