“The Nature of Light”
Gallery Program to Feature an Exhibit of Neon and Mixed Media Works by Michael Rocco Pinciotti
An exhibit of neon and mixed media works by Michael Rocco Pinciotti, “The Nature of
Light,” opens on Friday, July 9, with a reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Delaware Arts
Center Gallery, 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY.
Pinciotti’s work utilizes many mediums and repeating themes including nature, time, a sense
of place, flight and light. His mixed media pieces often refer to nature and offer a unique mix of
technology and the organic world. Pinciotti’s work draws a parallel between what mother nature
has created and what mankind has created. He seamlessly and harmoniously blends sticks,
stones, wood, vines and other natural materials with neon, metal, photography and other man
made materials. For example, in this show, Pinciotti will display an eleven foot neon silhouette of
a soaring eagle set against a mural-sized photograph. Several of his pieces are documented instal-
lations of neon words and structures set against Sullivan County’s hills and woods.
“Time and place are subtle threads present in numerous of my pieces,” says Pinciotti. “A sense
of place is the essence of who we are. In other words—our own individual temples are reflections
of what is around us, how we see our inner selves or what we might wish it to be at any given
moment. The dream of flight is also a reoccurring theme in my work. It may be a reference to the
emotional spirit soaring above it all to gain a better understanding of our day to day lives or a
need to fly away from its injustices. It may be the beauty of the miracle of flight itself via a wing
of a bird or an airplane. Or perhaps it’s an homage to the ingenuity of nature to evolve a process
of defying gravity both literally and physically and man’s ability to recreate that process.”
Pinciotti has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toledo and a Master of Fine Arts from
Pratt Art Institute. A current resident of Sullivan County, he has spent the last 23 years in New
York City incorporating neon into his artwork. He has exhibited, organized and curated exhibi-
tions involving light throughout the United States, Argentina, Brazil and Finland. Pinciotti’s work
is featured in many books, documentary videos, major motion pictures and tv shows.
“The Nature of Light” is on view through Friday, July 30. The show is sponsored by the
Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and made possible in part with funds from the New York State
Council on the Arts. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more

“Metaphors, Meditations, Reflections”
Douglas Craft set to Exhibit at Arts Center Gallery in August
An exhibit of paintings and collages by Douglas Craft, “Metaphors, Meditations, Reflections,”
opens on Friday, August 6, with a reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Delaware Arts Center
Gallery, 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY.
Douglas Craft’s abstract paintings and collages radiate both beauty and strength. Craft uses his
own personal vocabulary of shape and form, color, line, structure and space, to explore both the inner
self and the outer world—combining disciplined observation along with the influence of the uncon-
“The saturated black and whites of the Catskill winter landscape seems to have penetrated the
plastic structure of observational form in my paintings. It has opened up the dictates of my pictorial
form to a more simplified, open one—condensing that visual form to an even more lyrical, poetic exi-
gency. But ultimately no words can explain the result of my work for it stems from the unconscious
exploration in the studio—alone with my muse,” says Craft. “Perhaps the greatest influence in deter-
mining my work has been the work of other artists, contemporary as well as the more traditional of
this century, such as Turner, Matisse, Kandinsky and Braque. One realizes that there is no such
thing as a new original artist—one builds on the other. One can only hope to leave one’s signature.
The joyful and sometimes painful search goes on every day. While this is at times frustrating, it also
opens up the richness of the creative act. The words of critics or artists can never explain painting.
The words can only hint at real art—painting is painting is art. Exploring the soul brings eventual
contentment and joy when one has been successful, and can then share it with his viewers.”
Craft has had numerous one-man exhibitions in prestigious galleries and museums in New York
City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Scotland and London. His work has been featured in a retrospective exhi-
bition at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. Craft’s artwork is in many per-
manent collections throughout the country including Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Modern
Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Newark Museum, Jersey City Museum, Butler Institute of
American Art, and the Smithsonian Institution among numerous others.
“Metaphors, Meditations, Reflections” is on view through Friday, August 27. The show is
sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and made possible in part with funds from the New
York State Council on the Arts. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
