The Olean Public Library Art Gallery will open the exhibit Dreamscapes: Prints by Ronald Netsky on November 9th. The public is invited to view this free exhibition through December 15, 2017.

Netsky is Professor of Art at Nazareth College in Rochester, New York where he teaches printmaking. He also teaches printmaking at the Woodstock School of Art. Netsky received his BFA from Philadelphia College of Art and his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis. His prints are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz among others.

Speaking of his medium, Netsky explains, “I am a printmaker, but I have never thought of printmaking as a way of reproducing images. I think of etching and lithography as primary media and the ability to make multiples, a fringe benefit. Over three decades I have come to know these media not as devices to produce quantities of an image, but as the means to create unique works of art that could not be created in any other way.” His subject matter is most often the natural environment. As he explains, “this has tended to be the interplay between organization and chaos found in nature.”


This is one of a series of library exhibits administered by the Olean Public Library and the Cattaraugus County Arts Council. This series is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
