There is a huge flurry of activity to report this month in several locations. This year the State of the Art Gallery is celebrating their 30th anniversary. One of a series of major events will be an exhibit of the members’ art hosted at the Community School of Music and Art. I will show a large landscape from last summer’s series of Cascadilla Creek paintings, entitled Falls, Eddies, and Riffles on Cascadilla Creek. (left)
Meanwhile, back at the gallery, Connie Zehr will create an installation of her sand and glass in the Salon, and the members will have the opportunity to show work in the front room. I will have three new abstract paintings from a recently completed series: Black and White Explorations of Shape.
At the same time, I will have a new landscape painting included in the Art of Friends at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Ithaca. This painting was started on site the summer before last and finished up in studio this winter. It features poplar trees on the grounds of Chateau Lafeyette Reneau which overlooks Seneca Lake. (left)
Last and certainly not least, at the Moosewood restaurant, I will have the largest collection ever of my landscapes, almost thirty paintings on display. I chose these from work produced mostly during the last three years. Come and eat delicious food surrounded by the warm tones of summer and fall. You will find familiar scenes from Ithaca’s park and wild lands, and a few from my travels. (below)
