Narrator -Welcome to the Coast Guard Art Program art exhibition, my name is Karen Lowe and I chair this program we call COGAP. Works by seven local artists anchor the 30 paintings that has just opened at one of New York’s premier historic sites, Federal Hall National Memorial at 26 Wall Street. Two works feature the Coast Guard in the New York metro area. The paintings encircle the rotunda, each bearing a label with the name of the artist, painting medium and description. The United States Coast Guard has eleven missions — many are depicted in these fine works of art. COGAP has one mission: to immortalize in our paintings the courageous men and women of the Coast Guard that bravely serve our country. We are artists from around the United States that volunteer our time and talent donating paintings to COGAP. Each painting is a gift from the artist- the work is used to educate the public and to honor those who serve. Leendert Van Der Pool is working on a drawing of the memorial interior — he also has a paiting on display titled Dive Locker Hull Inspection. Leendert, it’s a great painting , tell us why you chose this particular subject to paint?
Leendert — “I know what the divers experience when they are under the surface of the water, and this is a very nice thing to know — how they are seeing, the objects they are working on — sometimes the water is very dark and you can hardly see — you have to touch and feel.”
Narrator — Amy Diji is painting outside, capturing the grand scale of the statue of George Washington atop of the Wall Street Entrance. She is also a contributing artist to the program.
Amy — “I just use what I have to contribute because I really appreciate my freedom in this country and I appreciate the sacrifices that are made by others so I can stand on a corner and paint.”
Narrator — I have two paintings on view, they are both very special subjects to me. Mission of compassion is a tribute to the humanitarian work of the Coast Guard in Haiti following the Earthquake of 2010. As we pan over the art on display, you see in a two-dimensional way the larger than life missions of the Coast Guard. The men and women serving our country inspire the artists of the art program. This show at Federal Hall National Memorial is open and free to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. now through September 10, 2013. There are two entrances, 26 Wall Street noted for the imposing statue of George Washington and 15 Pine Street with Ramp access. An interior elevator provides access upper and lower levels of building. I hope you enjoy our show.
