Ockawamick School Alumni follow last years success with a second Art Show

May 20th, 2016

Ockawamick School Alumni follow last years success with a second Art Show

The opening event of last year’s Ockawamick Central School Reunion was a showcase of the artistic talent of its alumni at the Philmont Public Library. This year the group will show new work.

Abstract painter Christine Guarino, whose work is well represented in galleries and collections throughout the Northeast and graphic artist Richard Wambach, owner of the Wambach Communications Group in Dutchess County as well as award-winning photographer Ken Bovat, of Photo-Art by Ken Bovat in Claverack, whose photographs appear often in
Columbia County venues, will be represented in the Alumni show. Steve Wildermuth, Catherine Harms, Susan Wildermuth Bues and Brian Yorck will display paintings, drawings and photographs.

Each is active in local arts organizations such as the Columbia County Photography Club, Columbia County Council on the Arts, and show their work in solo and group.

All of the artists were students of Mrs. Kathryn Nicke, who taught at Ockawamick Central School. The artists enjoyed reuniting and reminiscing of their common artistic interests last year, originally fostered by their teacher. They credit Mrs. Nicke for inspiration, instilling in them a love of art, for allowing them space and time to work at school, and for encouraging their creativity.

This year the artists especially want to recognize Karen Garafalo, Librarian at the Philmont Public Library, for her support and enthusiasm for art shown in the Library space. Ms. Garafalo will be retiring this Spring.

The Alumni Show’s opening is Saturday, May 21 from 2-4 p.m. at the Philmont Public Library, 101 Main Street, Philmont, and it will run through June 27. For more information on the show, call the Library at (518) 672-5010.

Artist Richard Wambach to Show with Fellow Alumni

Artist Richard Wambach to Show with Fellow Alumni

The Ockawamick Central School (OCS) Alumni Reuniion Art Show will run from May 25 through June 27, 2015. Opening reception is May 25 (Memorial Day) at 10:30am at Philmont Public Library, Main Street, Philmont, NY . Exhibit will include drawings, paintings and photographs by Ken Bovat, Susan Bues, Christine Guarino, Peter Von Sholly, Richard Wambach, Steve Wildermuth and Brian Yorck.

The following short bio is about FFA artist Richard Wambach, Alumni Class of 1965:

Richard is a graphic designer and owner of Wambach Communications Group, Inc., a marketing and creative services agency for 43 years. He started Nic & Wambach Creative Arts with business partner Nic VH in 2012 specifically to create portfolios of black and white drawings of historic scenes in the Hudson Valley, NY and Northeast Kingdom, VT.

He credits Mrs. Knicke, his high school art teacher, with encouraging him to seek a career as a “commercial artist” (in 1965 people said an artist was a hippie, how could you make a living?). He enrolled in a two-year Associates program of Commercial Art with Fine & Applied Arts degree from Dutchess Community, Poughkeepsie, NY. Wambach graduated at the top of his art class in 1967 and recipient of the David Lax Gold Metal in the Arts award. While still attending college, was hired by a Poughkeepsie printer in their art department, enlisted for a 3-year tour with the US Army (101st Airmobile Division, Republic of Vietnam 1968) and had his artist job waiting at the print shop upon his return until he started his own company in 1972.

While advertising, marketing, graphic design and promoting his client’s commercial products and services was his mainstay for 43 years, Richard’s main interest was always drawing. So he is making more time for drawing and displaying at both outdoor & indoor shows from Spring to Fall throughout the Hudson Valley and NEK Vermont. He has had one-man shows at the Hyde Park Library gallery and the Rhinebeck Bank atrium gallery recently and has displays in several gift shops in Vermont. He can often be found at arts & crafts shows, farmer’s markets and other weekend street festivals in Columbia and Dutchess Counties. He has also accepted many commissions to draw peoples homes, farms, yachts and antique autos as well as continuing to build his own portfolio of popular historic subjects.

Richard is excited to be displaying his artwork along with his fellow alumni artists at the OCS Alumni Reunion Art Show at the Philmont Library from May 25 through June 27. He said:

“This reunion event is kind of a major highlight of my long career. Being able to show with my fellow alumni artists – some new acquaintances and some old, dear friends – is quite an unexpected honor that I hope to cherish for a long time to come!”
