Art Exhibit: FROZEN IN TIME

Works by Crystal Keeler at Studio Around the Corner

The Cultural Arts Coalition is thrilled to present Frozen in Time, works by Crystal Keeler, at Studio Around the Corner.

Crystal Keeler is a local artist in the greater Danbury area, currently residing in the Putnam Lake community of Patterson, NY. She has a degree in Media Arts & Animation, and loves to explore a wide range of artistic disciplines, from animation and digital art, to painting, sculpting, soap making, and writing. Crystal has a deep passion for both science and the arts, and her work is often a juxtaposition of the two, such as combining traditional and digital 3D sculpting techniques, or abstract work mixing the effects of heat and gravity in a fast setting epoxy resin. Her latest abstract series uses this technique and others to capture a range of motions, colors and forms. From calm vistas reminiscent of a spring meadow or cresting waves on an ocean, to dynamic expanding nebulas glowing in brilliant colors, each represents a transient emotional state, frozen in time.

In addition photography by youth artist, Maxwell Likens will be displayed. Maxwell is a senior at Brewster High School and an incoming freshman at RIT for Biomedical Engineering.

Opening Reception & Meet the Artist:  Friday, March 2, 7p – 9p.

About The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition

The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining cultural arts within the Town of Southeast and its surrounding region. TOSCAC was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 2010 with the purpose, as detailed in the incorporation papers, “… to promote and raise funds for the development and effective management of affordable, accessible performance space that will provide citizens of the Town of Southeast opportunities to participate in and appreciate cultural arts, including lectures, theater, dance, film, music, visual arts, and inclusive community events.”

Our current focus is the renovation of the Southeast Old Town Hall, a historic landmark within the Village of Brewster and a perfect venue to serve as a cultural hub. The Old Town Hall has been described as a “Jewel in the Center of Brewster” and its renovation will help foster the revitalization of downtown Brewster.
