Artist Laurie A. Guzda invites a local documentary filmmaker to her Hawley studio in the last installment of “Salon Series | On Location,” which premiers this Saturday.

Guzda is a mixed media artist, photographer, and writer. She is a storyteller who has a particular passion for using found objects.

“As a storyteller my favorite form for creating art is mixed media. It is irresistible to me to find an object and build a story around it. That’s been the source of my art in recent years. And often, I try to include humor,” says Guzda.

The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance’s 2021 Salon Series features a series of short-form films spotlighting three local women artists as they create new works of art. Narrowsburg-based filmmaker Oriel Danielson directs the series, which is part documentary, part artist talk and demonstration.

About the filmmaker

Oriel Danielson’s filmmaking journey started in Israel and continued in Stockholm and New York City. He’s directed and edited dozens of short documentaries about art, culture and nature.

Today, Danielson lives in Narrowsburg, makes films, reads theater, and writes poetry. “I am interested in the tactile relationship between artists and their work. My goal is to capture the process of creating an art piece in an authentic and intimate way,” he said.

The activities of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance are made possible in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. For more information call 845-252-7576.
