Watercolors by Michael Mendel
Currently on view at the Emerson is a select group of watercolors by award- winning artist Michael Mendel. He has had a love affair with the Catskills for over seventy years and brings their beauty and charm to life in some of the vibrant paintings currently on exhibition here. Whether capturing on paper a rusting tractor, a scenic train ride or a towering oak, a lovely memory has been magically created. Mendel signs his paintings ZEPEL, memorializing a Swiss boy-doll he so much cherished as a very young child, but had to leave behind in Berlin Germany, when he with his parents fled the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler in the Fall of 1938. From the mid 1960s and for thirty years thereafter, Mendel designed album covers for some of America’s most successful recording artists featuring the likes of Tony Bennett, Willie Nelson, Donovan, Gladys Knight, The NY Philharmonic and hundreds more in all musical genres.
All his works currently on exhibition at the Emerson are for sale here. For more information, contact us at (845)688-2828 or www.emersonresort.com

Artwork by Ken RushOngoing Display in the Emerson Hallways FREE
Ken’s art is about places that are embedded within him as an emotion and as a thought. It is a place he has never specifically seen, photographed, or sketched, but rather exists in his paintings as they develop within the studio.
His lifelong attachments to Vermont landscape and to New York City emerge as constants in his work. The gabled house is a place and a form that has special meaning. It is a shape that is both familiar and abstract, and a locale that is mysterious yet familiar. Like the canyons of the city, it has provided me with an artistic rubric, one where I am able to explore and look for different outcomes. The shape of the house, its angled roof and shadowed side, have become an embedded gesture in the physical creation of his work as well as the psychological icon which propels it.
The Emerson is always open to the public as well as guests, and we invite you to visit our Spa, restaurants and the Country Store. While you’re here, take time to stoll the halls and view not only the work of Allan Skriloff, but also of the many other artists whose work is on display throughout the Emerson property. For more information, please contact 877-688-2828.

The Color of Water Exhibit by Mercedes CeciliaOngoing Display at The Inn at The Emerson FREE
Mercedes Cecilia has been painting the water sources of the Catskill Mountains for over 30 years. Using mediums such as mineral pigments, bee’s wax and oils, Mercedes’ work reflects her connection with Nature. For Mercedes, art is a way of experiencing life through the process of painting. She walks the shores of lakes and lengths of streams to find a place to set her easel and begins by catching the light playing on the surface of the water. Another play begins when the trees reflect their form in the water. With each piece, Mercedes acknowledges and feels deep gratitude for the painters, artists, scientists, and spiritual teachers who have influenced her and taught her to discover, expand, and express her feelings though her paintings.
The Emerson is always open to the public as well as guests, and we invite all to view not only the work of Mercedes Cecilia, but also of the many other artists whose work is on display throughout the Emerson property. For more information, please contact 877-688-2828.
