Curator: H.M. Saffer
Originally from Philadelphia, Pa., H.M. now resides in Columbia County. He has been recognized for his work in music, the culinary arts and fine art and has studied art in the U.S., France and Japan. It was in Japan, where he continued his study of brush painting, that he started applying his Western Style of painting to the Sumi-e techniques he was learning.

After his return to the US, his style of painting shifted from exclusively works on paper to include oils and he began melding the Oriental influences with his Western style. H.M.’s current work reflects this mélange.

H.M. has instructed at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, Berkshire Community College, Columbia-Greene Community College, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Art School of Columbia County (ASCC). He currently has gallery representation both in the United States and abroad. To see works by H.M. Saffer visit www.hmsaffer.com

“A Body of Work”

This exhibit will glorify the human figure in all mediums.

Artwork above: Maj Kalfus “Blue Nudes”; mixed ink, pastel and acrylic on paper

Exhibition Dates: July 19, – September 19, 2014
CCCA Gallery
209 Warren Street
Hudson, NY

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 19
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Juror: Maj Kalfus
Maj Kalfus was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her paintings and drawings are influenced by an extensive career in the fashion industry. After attending the High School of Art and Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, as well as classes at the School of Visual Arts, her career, which began in the field of fashion illustration, evolved into fashion merchandising, marketing and design. Re-entering the world of fine art, she joined the Studio Arts Program at SUNY Empire State College in Chelsea and participated in several shows.

Her very personal style of family portraiture has led to privately commissioned paintings and drawings. With a studio in the country she has taken advantage of the natural landscape and gardens with interpretations of flowers and country vistas. Roosters, hens, and goats have also become part of her repertoire. Her work can be seen at www.kalfus-studios.com.

More recently Maj has developed a following as an art teacher with classes in figure drawing, color and design in NY and MA. She has taught classes at the Hudson Opera House, Berkshire Community College and Columbia Greene.

Maj and her husband, photographer, Lonny Kalfus, have their studios in a century old, renovated farmhouse in Columbia County, NY.

Maj’s work has been exhibited throughout Columbia County including several shows at the CCCA.

Exhibiting Artists:
Archie Brennan, Denise Chandler, Janet Cooper, Steven Dono, Richard Edelman, Susan Elias, Fran Heaney, Linda Horn, Valerie Hoffmann, Gretchen Kelly, Hildy Pincus Kronen, Bob Laurie, Lear Levin, Cynthia Mulvaney, Daniel Marcus, Lisa McMillan, Patrick Milbourn, Sonia Pilcer, Daniel Region, Carol Swierzowski, Susan Sabino, Johnny Sullivan, Paul Solovay, Susan Solovay, Kenneth Tannenbaum, Glen Tunstull, Barbara Walter, Mary Wright.
