Message from Kristy:
We are grateful for sponsors who have donated monies and supplies to keep our program going. We celebrate the message that art is important in education and we constantly find beauty in Saugerties as a result of this fact. Our own backyard is equally as beautiful as far away exotic locations. Our spirits exhibit joy and that is transcribed into artwork with our hand and eye coordinations. Please celebrate with us. www.KristyBishopStudio.com  FMI: 845-246-8835






are abstract, but I call them realistic.” When asked about the remarkable amount of detail demonstrated in each painting, Abrams responded, “Life is too short unless you pay attention to the details.” He noted that sometimes people see “microscopic (things)” in his paintings. “The only thing I try to do is express myself. It’s not too complicated, or it’s very complicated,” Abrams said humorously. Paintings and sculptures fill his hand-built studio located nearby his home, which he built as well. Sculptures include “Nike,” created from raw materials such as cloth, rope, and string, with a laser cut steel base, and hand-painted to appear like a bronze, and another titled “Blue Arc” that Abrams is currently in the process of finishing for an art collector in Albany. A large three-piece painting is presently on display at the Saugerties Performing Arts Factory (SPAF), entitled, “The Ocean Song.” According to Abrams, this painting illustrates his perception of nature’s unity and survival of the planet. Abrams described that he “saw the whole planet at once, and everything was one thing.” He went on to say that all of the ocean and land and beings residing within each are united. He likened the seaweed in the painting to “the skin of the sea.”
