CROSS COUNTY – YoHo Meets NewRo Opening Reception

transFORM Gallery, and our event sponsor, Westchester Magazine, thank all of you who attended, “Cross County – YoHo Meets NewRo”.


We also thank our artists Catherine Latson, Ginny Fox, Alexa Grace, and John Folchi for joining us at the opening reception and taking a few minutes to speak about their artwork and creative process.


transFORM Art Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill,  lead the presentation by speaking about the YoHo Studio and her inspirations behind the show. Before giving up the floor, she spoke about Pasquale Miele, who could not attend the opening, calling his work both whimsical and “Basquiat-like”.


Catherine Latson then discussed how nature is the text and a full-fledged collaborator behind her work. She has a passion for using exclusively organic and repurposed materials. Her latest collection, The Garment Series, offers an unconventional take on art and engineering of self-decoration.


Ginny Fox revealed how she uses her hands, rather than brushes, to create clean lines. By layering and removing the paint with a white rag or t shirt, her hands become the vehicle for creating alternating fields of depth and translucent light.


Alexa Grace spoke of her artistic journey, working with notable illustrators, such as Edward Gorey. She began illustrating for The Atlantic Monthly, Harpers, The Village Voice, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, both Time and LIFE Magazines, Newsweek, The Washington Post, The Detroit Free Press, L.A. Times, Mademoiselle, Dia Nappon Printing, etc. She also has published adult and children’s books, to her credit.


White Plains artist John Folchi, explained the skill behind dramatizing his cloud paintings, working from both photographs and memory he creates an emotional vista bringing a sense of levity or foreboding to his subjects.


transFORM Co-Founder, Andreas Messis lead a group tour of the manufacturing operations of transFORM’s built-in closets and custom cabinetry facilities.


A special transFORM Gallery thank you goes out to Jeremy Bacon for performing jazz standards throughout the night. The evening concluded when Kara honored the requests of her guests and performed a few jazz tunes for a grand musical finale.
