New Artist: Trevor Wilson: Graphic Sketches
Cooperstown, NY— 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.
“It’s a practice of world-building,” he noted, combining grid-based structures, meditation, pattern and archetype. Wilson works only with paper, graphite (many degrees of softness!) and colored pencil. While they appear ordered and controlled, he explained, in fact they are deeply intuitive. Born in Brooklyn, Trevor Wilson is a dual-national (UK/USA) with family roots Upstate, in Yorkshire and Denmark. He lived near Chenango Lake as a child, attending elementary school in South New Berlin, then when in his teens moved to California. He graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles then moved back Upstate. He fabricated architectural glass at WRW in Charlotteville. There he worked in partnership with his father, glass designer, David Wilson, and artist Walter Reisen on projects mostly up and down the East Coast. Following the 2008 economic collapsed, and the close of WRW, he established Trevor Wilson Studio near South Kortright, Delaware County. He lives nearby on a mountain top.
The Winter Wall rotates monthly, presenting a new featured artist as part of the larger Winter Show that 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 and painted people by Lavern Kelley, renowned farmer folk artist, and colorful suspended ‘birdhouses’ by Louis Sherry. The Winter Wall will melt into Spring with a Sibling Show in April. The Art Garage is open seven days a week with an appointment, at 689 Beaver Meadow Road, Cooperstown: simply text 315-941-9607 or call 607-547-5327. ‘If we’re in, we come out!’ Visitors are reminded to park in the driveway and not on the town road.
