Seeing Ithaca

This year the State of the Art Gallery will again be sponsoring Seeing Ithaca Through the Eyes of Artists. It will take place during the month of August.

Look Club

Katrina Morse, Patty Brown, and Carol Spence will be hosting Look Club at the gallery every second Sunday, 2–3 to look at the artwork on display. Learn about different types of artwork and how to talk about art. What do you see? How does it resonate with you? The next Look Club will be held on Sunday, July 14, 2–3.

Exploring water: In my water series I've depicted how one touch on the surface of water ripples out, like one act of kindness can ripple out into more kindnesses. And how being in water can make us feel like we are one with water. Water is life. Storms and rain bring cleansing and growth and an opportunity to start fresh.
