Kozol is a Brooklyn-based painter whose work focuses on color, light and the landscape. She has said the northeastern terrain — forests, rivers and oceans — are primary sources for her artwork.

“I am stimulated by the great outdoors where I embrace the sights, sounds and smells of the landscape — I navigate between reality and memory, intention and chance,” she said. “Capturing a play of light or a suggestion of form, my paintings evoke a sense of the familiar, a place remembered or just imagined.“

Melanie Kozol received an Masters in Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts and a degree in Studio Art from Connecticut College. In recent years, she has been named an artist-in-residence and received a variety of prestigious fellowships.

In addition to teaching painting and drawing at the School of the Arts in New York City, she is a visiting professor at Pratt Institute.

Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays; noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays; and other times by appointment. The Courthouse Gallery is located at the side entrance of the Old Warren County Courthouse, on the corner of Canada and Amherst streets.
