Saugerties is quickly becoming an art haven with an abundance of talented artists tucked throughout the town all creating unique and intriguing work. Emerge Gallery is pleased to have the opportunity to showcase just a small fraction of the talented work from both life-long Saugerties artists and those new to the community. 


Over twenty artists living and working in Saugerties are participating in this exhibition including Loel Barr, Jennifer Lewis Bennett, Nancy Campbell, Rosa Lee Charpentier, Shelley Davis, Nancy deFlon, Josepha Gutelius, Jeffrey Helmuth, Anne Marie Hoffstatter, Katie Hoffstatter, Debra Joyce, Barbara Tepper Levy, Yvette Lewis, Marjorie Magid, Ann Morris, Andrea Walcutt Perez, Tina Piccolo, Tad Richards, Prudence See, Elizabeth Shafer, Margaret G. Still, Hank Vanderbeck and Leonardo Vatkin. Exit 20 is curated by gallery director Robert Langdon. 


Emerge Gallery is also very pleased to be exhibiting the community sculpture Flotsam & Jetsam, created by the Saugerties community as part Shout Out Saugerties — a town-wide celebration of the arts. The dragon sculpture was crafted with donated plastic bottles, corks, netting and other recycled materials collected by community members. The sculpture was created over a period of three weekends in October by Michele Aisenstadt, Margarita Asian, Edith Bolt, Christy Rupp, Rae Stang, Joanne Weber and the Saugerties community. The community may continue to contribute to the creation by visiting Emerge Gallery throughout February. Visitors are asked to write a good wish on crepe paper and add it to the sculpture to help fill it with color. 


Emerge Gallery is offering two art workshops during February: Iphoneography: Using Phone Apps to Transform Your Images on February 6, 2019, from 6-8 PM; and Experiments In Spontaneity: An Abstract Painting Workshop with Ellen McKay to be held on four consecutive Tuesdays from 11AM-2PM beginning February 19, 2019. Pre-registration is required for both classes. For more information and to register, please visit
