Exhibit of artist Marianne Appel, one of Woodstock’s overlooked women artists

The daughters of the late Woodstock artist Marianne Appel, who designed the Woodstock Village Green and its war memorial in 1946, are hosting an exhibit of Appel’s work on weekends through October 25, 2015. The show has been hung in the studio of Sarah Greer Mecklem at 30 Plochmann Lane in Woodstock, NY. Appel is among the painters featured in the current exhibit at the Woodstock School of Art: “Overlooked: Woodstock Women Artists.” The exhibit recognizes a group of artists who, despite their prodigious abilities, received less attention during their lifetimes than their male Woodstock counterparts. Appel was expressive in many genres and mediums. She created fantastic puppets of paper mache and painted murals and colorful landscapes and interior scenes; her expression was notably optimistic. The show is open weekends from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Or by appointment. Some works are available for purchase. For further information, call 845-679-6157.
