Arriving in America in 1882 at age 14, with his parents and brother, William Arlt knew he was an artist early, and quickly strove to make it a reality. His career was launched in textile designing, and at this he excelled. But his passion was in landscape, portrait and especially floral works. Like many arrivals in the early 20th century, he found beauty all around him in the Catskill Mountains, and endeavored to portray it. Woodstock became the ideal setting for his art, and it soon became his home. This exhibit displays the wide variety of his artistic palette, and tracks his life in Woodstock with his family, including grandson Lewis Arlt, Vice-President of the Historical Society's Board of Directors.
Deborah Heppner has been curating exhibits for the Historical Society since 2005, including most recently, Woodstock Collects: Heritage Through Art and Works in Wire. She served as HSW President for 12 years.
The Historical Society of Woodstock is located at 20 Comeau Drive in Woodstock, 12498.
Admission is free. At this time, masks are recommended.
