Contemporary Classic Portraits:

Award Winning artist and instructor Corey Pitkin to show this November at the R Gallery at Arlene’s 


Arlene's Artist Materials is thrilled to open the exhibition featuring work by local artist Corey Pitkin running November 7th to 30th 2019. Corey Pitkin’s paintings and drawings celebrate the forgotten things that live on the outskirts of memory. The insubstantial thoughts that shift every time you try to hold them for longer than a second. Ideas that we don’t have words for anymore. The Artist Reception on Thursday, November 7th, from 5:30 to 7:30pm. Food and beverages will be provided.


about Corey Pitkin 

Corey Pitkin's hunger for the mastery of classical drawing and painting techniques borders on the obsessive. He is driven to rediscover this knowledge that was all but abandoned and re-adapt it to a more modern sensibility. Corey is the repentant of several awards from local, national and international competitions. He won the Richeson Pastel Silver Award in the Pastel 100 and the Helen N. Jacobs Memorial Award at the Hudson Valley Art Association's 85th Annual Juried Exhibition in Old Lyme, CT. Most recently was given an Honorable Mention in the 2019 UArt Online Pastel Competition. Pitkin teaches workshops at the Atelier at Arlene’s, Saratoga Arts as well as the Adirondack Pastel Society.
