ArtBeat: The Nadia Trinkala Memorial Art Exhibition @ Fulton Street Gallery, Troy
The life and work of artist, gallery owner and staunch arts supporter Nadia Trinkala, who passed away in April, will be honored with a special art exhibition at the Fulton Street Gallery in Troy. The Nadia Trinkala Memorial Art Exhibition will open on Friday, with a reception from 5-9pm in conjunction with the monthly Troy Night Out arts walk. The exhibit also coincides with what would have been Trinkala’s 45th birthday.
The show will highlight a wide variety of artworks in various media that Trinkala explored – from her early works in metal and jewelry to the expressive photographic pieces created during her recent studies in Creative Art Therapy in NYC.
“We are collecting art work made by Nadia or with Nadia as the subject of the art,” said photographer Ray Felix, who is co-coordinator of the exhibition. “Things like drawings, paintings, jewelry and those special cards that she often made for her friends.”
“We can’t think of a more fitting tribute to our friend who always celebrated art and all its creators,” adds photographer-collagist Bob Gullie, who is coordinating the exhibition with Felix.
The exhibition – which continues through Saturday, July 16 – will be doubly bittersweet, as it is also the final exhibition for the non-profit, volunteer-run Fulton Street Gallery, which is shuttering its doors after a dozen years at 408 Fulton St. in Troy.
