After the Storm: Work by Kristen DeFontes

When: Jan. 25-March 8 2020

On August 28, 2011, Hurricane Irene swept into the rivers of Schoharie County, which flooded the region and left behind a trail of damage in its wake. Nine years later, Schoharie County-based artist Kristen DeFontes has curated a selection of objects that explore the immense effect of the extreme flooding that she witnessed personally and in her community. Using construction debris, stone, natural wood and cast bronze elements, DeFontes creates sculptures that consider the effects of not only the storm, but also personal familial conflicts and broader environmental issues. Many of these materials are salvaged from her own home.
