Caroga Historical Museum – 2019 Opening Reception

The Caroga Historical Association and Museum begins its 42nd season with a reception for featured artist Phil Jaros and workshop leader Colleen Mosenthin.

Phil’s exhibit is titled “Nature Creations” and will be featured in the exhibit barn from June 25th through July 28th. Phil started drawing and sketching at a very young age and recalls starting in grammar school when he drew and painted a rose for his teacher. At Warren Harding High School he took 4 years of mechanical drawing, which came very easy to him. As he progressed through high school, he was selected to be the class artist, which required that he illustrate the senior yearbook. His technical drawing training helped guide his career as he spent 15 years at Taylor Made Products designing a variety of marine products. He then moved on to spend 20 years designing for White Mop Wringer Co., where he used his design skills to convert metal janitorial products (mops, buckets, wringers, squeegees) into plastic format.

Throughout his career and life, art continued to be a hobby for him. He would consider himself a self-taught artist, as “practice makes perfect”, so they say. His artistic abilities have evolved over the years, as he initially worked with pencil, then oil paint with a palette knife, and lastly switched over to watercolor, which he enjoyed the most. He continues to express his talent through watercolor paintings as he has always enjoyed painting things in nature, including fish, birds, flowers, and landscapes. He believes this keeps his mind sharp. He has given away many of his paintings to family and friends, especially if the subject appeals to them. His works have previously been exhibited at the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Gloversville, NY and the Paul Nigra Center in Mayfield, NY.

Colleen first started making baskets at the Caroga Museum about 18 years ago. After taking a class at the Blue Mountain Lake Museum to learn how to make Adirondack Pack Baskets, she decided to start making baskets at home. Two years ago, friends asked and encouraged her to start teaching classes, which led to the start of her business “Weave and Wobble”. Overcoming her initial fears, she soon realized how much she enjoys teaching and sharing her love of weaving. This summer, she plans to offer a full schedule of classes for beginner and more advanced weavers. Last year, she was asked to teach the class that introduced her to basket weaving and is honored to be a featured artist this summer season, showcasing some of her creations.

One of her basket weaving workshops will be held at the museum on Thursday, July 18th, from 10 am to 3 pm. Registration for the workshop is $20 for museum members and $25 for non-members. To register, send a check made payable to the Caroga Historical Museum to: Fran Miller, 196 E. Stoner Lake Rd., Caroga Lake, NY 12032. Please include your address and phone number with your registration. On the day of the workshop, please bring a lunch, shears, measuring tape, clothespins, awl, small tub, pencil and $25 for workshop materials. For additional information on the workshops, call Fran at (518) 835-9729.

The reception will be held on the museum property at 145 London Bridge Rd. in Caroga Lake starting at 7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public with light refreshments and beverages available. The museum is open Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 4 pm. There is no admission, however, donations are always welcomed. Both exhibits will be on display through July 28th.
