Artist Sigmund Abeles has a show at the Visual Arts Gallery of SUNY Adirondack opening October 13th. Abeles works in realist/surrealist oils, pastels, drawings. The postcard announcement of the show features the 2008 pastel self-portrait Portrait of a Parasomniac.
Abeles subject matter includes other medical and naturalist imagery as well. For example, the following Clinton King Drawing Ducks After a Stroke and Cock of the Roost.
I am particularly fond of the following Experiment #1 and Five Lubavitcher Men at Prayer.
Abeles website is sigmundabeles.net, while the gallery does not seem to have a website (boo, SUNY Adirondack), although the ILOVENY website does have info.
