September Artist

IMG_1842September Artist – Helga Grobel began her career as an artist in the 1960s working with clay. She became a proficient potter making bowls, plates, teapots, urns and hand built objects. In the 1980s and 1990s she focused on making jewelry using her own on-of-a-kind Raku beads. Her necklaces became multi-media with the addition of woven fiber and by adding beads from around the world along with her won hand forged brass and copper elements. Her interest in fiber art led her to create woven and stitched fiber collages that are exhibited this month at the library.
These paper sculptures are products of her free-flowing creative process using paper products especially soft egg cartons which are recycled into pulp and processed in a manner similar to clay.
Come see her artwork sculptures this month, but please don’t touch. Watch for an upcoming artist reception at the end of the month!

Come on in and see the exhibit. These paintings can be hung indoors or outdoors! We even have one hanging on the porch.

Artist’s Biography

Born in New York City, I have lived all over. My family has summered in the Adirondacks for five generations and I have a deep appreciation for the region.
As an artist, I create fine and decorative art and also host art workshops, including Plein d’Air gatherings at Lake George, where we gather to sketch favorite vistas, several of which are depicted in the pieces here in the Library. These art works are made to be installed anywhere. Who says art has to be hung on a wall in the living room? Why not on the side of a boat house or barn? My pictures can be hung inside or out!
My background spans the visual and performing arts. I am passionate about the value of art, history, and culture in community life and governance. In 2011-12, I led a community engagement project reconnecting Lake George, New York with the heritage of two of its overlooked artists, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. There is a historic roadside marker now on Route 9N adjacent to where the couple lived for decades.
I recently earned a Masters in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Museum Studies from Harvard University. For my thesis, I wrote an academic paper documenting my plans for an original cultural history exhibition prototype telling the story of Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball and the encompassing 1960s era.
