(HUDSON, N.Y.) – “On & Off the Wall,” the annual juried sculpture show by CCCA Gallery, opens with a reception on Saturday, January 31, 2015, from 5 to 7pm, and remains on view through March 21, 2015. The exhibit was curated by Chatham, N.Y., sculptor John Cooley.

Artists whose works were selected by Cooley include C. Michael Bufi, Dot Chast, Janet Cooper, Steven Dono, Julia Fingar, Dennis Herbert, Ellen Jouret-Epstein, Scott Keidong, Jack Kelly, Steve Kubicek, Clarke Olsen, Daniel Region, RJ Rosegarten, and Marlene Vidabor.

John Cooley has displayed his work in numerous juried shows in the Hudson Valley, Massachusetts and Michigan. He was educated at Syracuse University (BA & MA) and has a PhD from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Cooley is currently Professor Emeritus of English and Environmental Studies at Western Michigan University.

Cooley says, “I am attracted to three-dimensional art and typically work with wood or other natural materials. I am drawn to the edges of roads and fields, to dilapidated barns and abandoned factories, rich patinas formed by layers of paint or varnish and to the ways in which time alters surfaces with weathering, fading and blending of colors.”
