MEDITATIVE GRIDS: Trevor Wilson / Thru 4/11
TREVOR WILSON: ARTFUL MEDITATIVE GRIDS EXTENDED THOUGH APRIL 11
The Art Garage celebrates Catskill resident Trevor Wilson, new featured artist on its ‘Winter Wall’. Wilson presents Graphic Sketches, a series of small mesmerizing grid-based drawings — meditative ‘psychic architecture’ — all possibilities for much larger works. Visitors may call or text the gallery to reserve a viewing spot seven days a week by appointment: Text 315-941-9607 or call 607-547-5327. Masks required. The show is extended through Sunday April 11. “It’s a practice of world-building,” he noted. He combines grid-based structures, meditation, pattern and archetype. Wilson works only with paper, graphite (many degrees of softness!) and colored pencil. While they may appear ordered and controlled, they are deeply intuitive, he explained.
Born in Brooklyn, Trevor Wilson is a dual-national (UK/USA) with family roots Upstate, and in Yorkshire and Denmark. He lived near Chenango Lake as a child, attended elementary school in South New Berlin, moved to California as a teen. He graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles then moved Upstate. He fabricated architectural glass at the firm, WRW, in Charlotteville, NY. There he worked in partnership with his father, glass designer, David Wilson, and artist Walter Reisen on projects installed up and down the East Coast. The business closed in 2008. In 2015 he established Trevor Wilson Studio near South Kortright, Delaware County, where he lives nearby on a mountain top. The Winter Wall rotates monthly, presenting a new featured artist as part of a larger Winter Show that now offers: a fresh shipment of textiles by Ada Yonenaka — hangings and scarves; iconic landscape paintings by Tracy Helgeson; ceramics by Robert Seward; small figurative sculpture by Alice Hudson; carved people by Lavern Kelley, renowned farmer folk artist; and suspended birdhouses by Louis Sherry.
“You get to see a broad variety of artworks,” noted Sydney Waller, gallery director and founder, “while coming to see the cameo Wilson work.”
The Winter Wall will melt into Spring with a Sibling Show featuring Julien, Sophie and Ginger Miller — recent art students all — now artists — each with their own voice and style, to open April 16.
