An Oneonta resident whose art thrusts viewers into a world of abstract thoughts and concepts is on display at The Community Arts Network of Oneonta.
Originally from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Madeline Silber is a professional artist, graphic designer and art teacher at SUNY Oneonta.
Her show is called ‘Along the Way,’ which shows old and new work that reflects her life journey as an artist.
“Along the Way is a connection between the older and newer drawings,” Silber said during a tour of the gallery Thursday, May 14. “I’m primarily a painter but I’ve been drawing for the past year and I love it.”
Some of Silber’s drawings bring to mind otherworldly dimensions. The drawings were created with charcoal, ballpoint pen, colored pencils and gel-rolled pens.
