Description

Please Note: Masks are required for all visitors (age 2+) regardless of vaccination status.  

Please join The Katonah Museum Artists' Association (KMAA) for the opening of Natural Synergy: Carol Bouyoucos and Antoinette Wysocki in the Museum's Spot Gallery. 

Natural Synergy brings together Carol Bouyoucos and Antoinette Wysocki, two artists whose layered imagery balances chance and control, representation and abstraction, all the while inviting a myriad of interpretations. Their collaborative installation amplifies both their shared aesthetic sensibility and close attention to materiality.  

Carol Bouyoucos’ painterly photomontages begin in nature. While walking through the nature preserve where she lives and works, Bouyoucos takes iPhone pictures of the surrounding forest. She then digitally alters and combines these photographs with historical images. The resulting works, created with distinctly 21st century tools, evoke the romanticism and nostalgia of nineteenth-century landscape painting. They compel viewers to see nature anew—and to consider their own role in both its destruction and preservation.  

For Antoinette Wysocki, painting is as much about serendipity as it is about intentionality. She begins by laying a groundwork of gestural marks and washes of paint. From these brushstrokes—made spontaneously and instinctually—emerge abstract elements, more detailed imagery drawn from the natural world, and snippets of text, all of which Wysocki builds up slowly, through layer upon layer of paint. Through this additive process, she creates a dialogue between organic and abstract forms. 


Constant Carnival: The Haas Brothers in Context and Jeila Gueramian: Let's Step Inside will also be open for viewing.

Katonah Museum of Art
Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. Our Learning Center is the only interactive space in Westchester County where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Our outreach programs for the local Hispanic immigrant population are at the forefront of community-based education programs. The KMA works intensively with schools and service organizations to develop literacy and assimilation skills among this population.  Annual attendance is approximately 25,000 people.

The Katonah Museum of Art's programs are made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government, as well as by The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
