Two person exhibit:
Stan Bowman: Paris Contrasts
Rachel Kaufmann: Landscapes & Dreamscapes: Watercolor Explorations

Stan Bowman: In 1986, Stan spent 6 months in Paris on a sabbatic leave. "Paris is a marvelous old classic city, but at the same time it is a modern metropolis. There was a rick mixture of classical architecture with contemporary sights, signs and posters that reflected the modern life of the city. During my time there I created a series of images that reflected these two contrasting views of the city, using a 8x10 wood field camera. This exhibit tell that story!

Rachel Kaufmann: This exhibit encompasses early and more recent pieces from several decades of watercolor work, touching on the themes of consistency and change, wonder and agency, beauty and transcendence, in the life of the artist and the world all around.

Irina Kassabova, The Luthier 
with memorabilia from the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra archives

Recently, Irina has focused the attention of her artwork on art and music. "My idea is that visual art and music are one whole. They compliment each other and bring stronger emotions for the viewer, the listener, the player or another artist." This exhibit features large format charcoal and pastel drawings of string instruments. "I am looking to inspire a large audience, young or elderly; artist, musician or mathematician and physicist!".

The Tompkins Center for History and Culture newest addition is the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra.  Complimenting this exhibit is a wall decicated to memorabilia from the "CCO". Pick up a program for their current season!
