For this show, Ron is exhibiting several watercolor paintings from AMR’s Paint the Town plein air events this past summer. The paintings include a section of a gothic door to the inspiring Gould Memorial Church in Roxbury, The iconic Maple House on Route 28 in Arkville, and finally, the historic Bnai Israel Synagogue located on Wagner Avenue in the village of Fleischmanns. Ron also included several small abstract watercolors that are heavily influenced by the Catskill mountain region where he spends most of his time painting, exploring nature and hiking.

Ron’s paintings strive to provide joy, mystery and a sensitivity to places, people and objects. He wants to honor his subjects for their accomplishments and service by removing distractions and painting in a celebratory light. Subjects may be organic or man-made, commonplace or grandiose, newly-minted or weathered over many years. He usually paints familiar surroundings and that means rural subjects in the Catskill mountains and urban NYC scenes.

Ron is an artist based out of Highmount, New York (in the Catskills) and Long Island, New York. He grew up in Brooklyn surrounded by art and was taught to draw and paint in oil by his father. Ron has studied at The Art Students League of New York, the National Academy of Design and the Art League of Long Island. Ron enjoys painting all subject matters and currently works principally in watercolor both in plein air and in his studio.
