Travelin’ Man Solo Show By Jacob Houston Opens

DSC_0040CAMBRIDGE – The Travelin’ Man – Art Exhibition by Jacob Houston opened Friday at the Green Bridge Gallery in Cambridge, NY.  The show features a mixture of original works and prints of landscapes, near and far.  You’ll see familiar local scenes like Main Street Greenwich and Stump Church as well as distant works featuring the Swiss mountains, cityscapes and more.

Jacob is a talented young man who creates vivid works of art with a unique perspective and unfathomable detail.  One of the most talked about images at the show was his rendition of Los Angeles, which took him roughly three months to paint.  The detail is amazing.

We encourage everyone to come enjoy Jake’s show.  It’s a must see and will be on display until November 8th.  The Gallery is located at 13 West Main Street in Greenwich. The entrance is on the side of the building.  We are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9am-4pm and Sunday 12-2pm.  Saturday hours will be added in November and December to accommodate shoppers for the holiday season.

In addition to the art you’ll fine hand-made jewelry by a number of regional crafters.  We have delicate silver stamped jewelry as well as bold beaded word.  You’ll also find pottery made by Saratoga Springs potter Darren Prodgner.  In addition, we have other great items including FlashBags, matted photography prints, mittens, note cards and Christmas cards.

 About Matt Chinian: I’m a 51 year old husband and father of two school-aged daughters, we live in the village of Cambridge, NY. I’ve earned a B.A. from Bennington College in 1984 and an M.F.A. from SUNY Albany in 1988, both in fine art. Over the last 20 years I’ve been a carpenter, specializing in traditional window restoration. Last year, I “re-booted” landscape painting into my life. Cambridge and environs are as picturesque as any place on earth, and I find her beauty intoxicating. I learn how to paint everyday, my subject the farmland, the rivers, the hills and roads. My object is truth and beauty and lies and ugliness, They intersect, they talk, they fight, they try to work it out. At the end of it is a record of how it went down.”
