Cartography + Choreography will Feature Works by John Van Alstine and Erik Laffer
June 17 – July 30
Opening Reception: June 17, 5-8 pm
In honor of their 5th Anniversary, The Laffer Gallery (96 Broad St, Schuylerville) will present Cartography + Choreography, an exhibition of works by renowned artist John Van Alstine and gallery founder, Erik Laffer. Join them for an opening reception on Saturday, June 17 from 5-8 pm, to view inspirational works, enjoy live music with Hot Club of Saratoga, mingle with artists and celebrate the gallery’s growing success as one of Saratoga County’s and the Capital Region’s leading independent fine art galleries.
Cartography + Choreography brings together two prolific artists exploring the connections between the natural, the man-made, and the personal.
Assembling stone and found-object metal, Van Alstine contrasts the timelessness of stone with industrial elements of the 20th Century. His works create a poetic balance between the choreographed, floating earthbound stone and strength of metal.
Laffer’s abstract personal narratives are logical and experimental explorations of place– past, present and future. Identifying his own struggle to understand self, family and society, his paintings re-describe the world with a language of symbols, reminiscent of cartography.
