Woller art show opens Nov. 30 at Zoom Gallery


Fleischmanns — Many people know Fred Woller as a long-time Trustee of the Village of Fleischmanns as well as for having served as Planning Committee Chairman and Zoning Board Member in the Village of Fleischmanns. Others know him as a substitute teacher, EMT volunteer and carpenter specializing in old houses and decorative cabinets.
But not everyone knows that Woller has been showing his sculptures for over a decade, and more recently, showing and selling his large paintings. Fred began painting in earnest after his artwork was adopted as the logo for “Ride-and-Peak” bike race sponsored by the M-ARK Project. At that time he began painting his bicycle series, which allowed him the freedom to play with shapes and color with increasing freedom of movement and feeling. Many of these paintings will be on exhibit at his upcoming show at Zoom Gallery.
It may be of interest that Fred has recently been commissioned to replicate a missing “Lunette” relief depicting early history as part of the Kingston City Hall restoration. He says that this is the most ambitious art project he has undertaken and he was flattered to be chosen based on a relief he had in a show last March at Arts Society of Kingston.
The public is invited to view and purchase Fred’s current paintings at an exhibit entitled “My Point of View” at Zoom Gallery, 1164 Main Street in Fleischmanns, on November 30 from 3 to 5 p.m. The artist will be on hand to meet and greet.
