— More than 60 art works by Peter Cody will be featured in exhibition that is both a memorial and the celebration of his life.

Cody's drawings, prints and paintings will be on display through Aug. 2 at the Safe Harbors Ann Street Gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Peter Cody was an artist and long-time resident of Newburgh who exhibited his art for more than 40 years. He was known for his geometric iconography and economic use of color, value and surface. Working as a printmaker and painter, his art paid homage to the inherent power of symbolic imagery.

He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where he studied painting, printmaking, drawing and design. His studio practice continued to develop as he experimented with different drawing styles, especially those that relied on the ancient symbols from Native American culture and Greek myths, which soon became the foundation for his art. Over time, Cody expanded on his work of ancient symbols and eternalized his concepts of signs into the context of diagrams with underlining number or counting patterns. This period of work emphasized the importance of design shapes embedded in simple patterns that are balanced to create an all-over positive form with dynamic movement.

The exhibition iwas curated by Virginia Walsh, director of the nonprofit Safe Harbors Ann Street Gallery, which specializes in contemporary emerging and established artists. The gallery is located at 104 Ann Street in Newburgh.

For more information call Walsh at 784-1146 or email vwalsh@annstreetgallery.org.
