JUNE EXHIBIT
June 1 to 26, 2016
Gallery Night: Friday, June 3, 5pm to 8pm
Kumi Korf,
"Sublime is the Color"
Kumi’s exhibit features intaglios print on Akatosashi paper.  "It is a magic moment, each time when the dampened paper is peeled off from the plate, revealing the transferred image from plate to paper. I love the surface of the copper plate, polished, worked, inked, and wiped. My technique of intaglio printing is traditional, however the experience is more like painting than printing for me. Every day in Ithaca, I draw inspiration for my art from what I see and where I stand -- sky, clouds, trees, shadows, fields, flowers, grass, all and more in each season.  Color is both an escape and a return. "Think in terms of color," my friends call out. "Learn to give power to colors". These harmonies,  nature and art, ring joyfully as I pull each print off the press.”  Thanks to CSP Management for sponsoring this month’s exhibit.  Thank you to the Tompkins Trust Company for sponsoring a full year of exhibits.  Thank you to CSP Management for sponsoring our June and July exhibits!


JULY EXHIBIT
June 29 to July 30

Gallery Night: Friday, July 1, 5pm to 8pm
Laura Glenn,
"Personal Abstractions: Paintings and Collages"
I tend to think of my abstract paintings and collages in terms of dichotomies that reflect inner states and states of the world--buoyancy and gravity, focus and chaos, rural and urban, energy and calm.  To those I would add control and serendipity. Often I start out with an idea or a rough plan, but the process can take on a force of its own. I may control it; it may control me. Sometimes this leads to exciting results. Other times it leads me to ruin an effort that had potential.  Ultimately, a number of styles result. I hope that the art that emerge from this approach intrigues you.  Thank you to the Tompkins Trust Company for sponsoring a full year of exhibits. Thank you to CSP Management for sponsoring our June and July exhibits!


AUGUST EXHIBIT
August 3 to 28, 2016
Gallery Night: Friday, August 5, 5pm to 8pm
Lynne Taetzsch,
Abstract Meditations

In this collection of recent paintings, Lynne Taetzsch explores color, form and pattern.  She is especially drawn to the bountiful forms of nature in field and garden, extracting their elements in playful explorations.  The paintings in this exhibit range from quiet meditations to lush abundance.
