Jules Feiffer and Melissa Tevere Exhibits at CAA
OOPS! TOO LATE!
Jules Feiffer Upstate
“OOPS! TOO LATE!” is a playful exhibit of current work by renowned illustrator, Jules Feiffer, exists to surprise, give a sense of spontaneity to the viewer and the illusion that the work hasn’t dried yet. The show is meant to convey a gut wrenching response. The drawings presented are all new and allow us to see Feiffer’s view of the times we live in. Fred Astaire consistently dances throughout the entire exhibit, leading us through the joys and triumphs as well as the sorrows. Feiffer seemingly effortlessly creates movement and excitement with every line and brushstroke to paper, working from his heart, not his head. There is no pre-planning or goal, just his pure sense of self leaping from pen to paper.

My most recent work is based on my visits to Otsego County, New York, and include both small, straight-forward, plein air paintings that reflect my interest in light and weather as well as larger, studio paintings that use mixed media materials to expand the boundaries of the central paintings. These materials include writings by Cooperstown natives, James Fenimore Cooper and Susan Fenimore Cooper, who wrote extensively about the New York wilderness and the connection between spirituality and nature.
