eARTh, the May show at State of the Art Gallery, is a unique collaboration with the Museum of the Earth in celebration of its tenth anniversary. 2014 also marks an anniversary for State of the Art–the gallery has been in the art business in Ithaca for twenty-five years. The two organizations are partnering for two exhibitions that reflect concerns about climate change. eARTh, at the gallery, will examine the state of our changing planet and the role gallery members play as artists and citizens.
Work in the show ranges from abstract to representational and features a variety of media: paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, collage and sculpture. Each artist will bring his or her unique sensibility to the theme. The second show of related work will be held at the museum.
Both the gallery and the museum are committed to examining the world around us through the prisms of art and science.
These exhibitions were made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
eARTh opens April 30 with a reception Friday, May 2 from 5-8pm, Gallery Night in downtown Ithaca, and the show runs through June 1, 2014. State of the Art is located at 120 W. State Street/Martin Luther King, Jr. Street. The gallery is ADA accessible with curbside parking. Hours are Wednesday-Friday, 12-6pm and Saturday and Sunday, noon-5pm.
