The Gallery at the Woodstock Playhouse

Visit the Artists' Galleries Online

While the gallery at the Woodstock Playhouse remains on pause, please visit the websites of our current exhibitors, painter Allan Skriloff and photographer Elliott Landy. When contacting them, please be sure to mention the Woodstock Playhouse as a percentage of all sales through the playhouse will benefit the iconic site to sustain and ensure its place in our community and region during these uncertain times.

Allan Skriloff attended Pratt institute in 1962 and 1963, then transferred to Parsons School of Design, studying interior design. He studied at the Art Students League in 1954 and 1964, and then on and off for the next decade. Allan has had shower at Ok Harris and Jakendoff Bochi Gallery in SoHo NYC. He’s also shown at General Electric Headquarters , Manhattan College. An amusing Allan factoid: he’s had 6 paintings on The Days of Our Lives soap opera, over the course of several episodes that took place in a gallery. His work has also showed at Woodstock Art Association, Hunter Gallery, displayed and loan at the Emerson Resort, an award-winning four-diamond property here in the Hudson valley. Several of his Oil Worker paintings were purchased  by Precision Drilling in Houston Texas. Allan is represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson New York.

His work can be seen on his web site fineartbyskriloff.com. But to see all of his work go to houzz.com/pro/interioranalysis and scroll down to MY OTHER LIFE. He can be reached at 845-679-6325 if you wish to speak to him and see his work in person.
 

Elliott Landy, born in 1942, began photographing the anti-Vietnam war movement and the underground music culture in New York City in 1967.

He photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage, from 1967 to 69.

His images of Bob Dylan and The Band, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Richie Havens, and many others documented the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival, of which he was the official photographer.

After that, Elliott moved on to other inspirations and art forms, photographing his own children and travels, creating impressionist flower photographs and doing motion and kaleidoscopic photography in both still and film formats.

His photographs have been published worldwide for many years in all print mediums including covers of Rolling Stone, Life, the Saturday Evening Post, etc. and album covers, calendars, photographic book collections, etc.

He has published Woodstock Vision, The Spirit of A Generation, in book and CD-ROM format, and authored the book Woodstock 69, The First Festival.

He is currently publishing a series of limited edition lithographs of his classic rock photographs. To view and purchase his photographs and merchandise, click here to visit his website.
