TUTHILLTOWN SPIRITS will welcome three New York artists to the Gardiner Farm Distillery Monday and Tuesday July 8th and 9th. New York city artists Joseph Meloy and Fumero, along with New Paltz artist Ryan Cronin will be on site adding their distinct colorful images to the distillery’s three metal grain silos.
“Silos and barn walls across the country have traditionally served as billboards,” says Ralph Erenzo, partner at TUTHILLTOWN SPIRITS. “We’ve invited these artists to add color and meaning to the plain gray silos that hold the grains for our whiskeys.”
The three silos each stand 17 feet high and 69 feet in circumference. The installation includes a pathway around the silos and visitors are invited to stroll the perimeter and enjoy the exciting work of these local New York artists. Distillery guests are encouraged to spend some time exploring the murals.
Joseph Meloy’s VANDAL EXPRESSIONISM brings the artist’s “distinctly urban visual language” to the distinctly rural setting along the Shawangunkkill. Muralist Fumero earned his street cred in New York City executing colorful murals on buildings and heroic surfaces in public art spaces. Ryan Cronin is well known in the New Paltz area, his large scale art is “heavily influenced by pop culture”.
The artists will be working at the distillery Monday and Tuesday following the 4th of July weekend at TUTHILLTOWN SPIRITS, Gardiner, New York. The distillery tasting room will be open for samples and spirits sales from 11am till 6pm.
