Nicole Shields "A Sustainable Perspective"
March 6 - April 24, 2020
“I regularly use my farm and rural surroundings as subject matter for my artwork. I am interested in the natural beauty of this scenic area. The image of “The Lake” is a photograph I took at our family camp on the Kinzua Reservoir. I transferred the image onto canvas and then worked back into it with paint. I tried to capture the feeling of summer to enjoy all year long."
Kari Roslund "Interwoven"
February 7th -March 26th
Catered Opening Reception February 7th, 6-8 PM
"I enjoy the process of taking fibers from their raw state and reworking them into a palette of lustrous vibrant silks and woolen vibrant tones. When I construct, I layer my hand worked fleeces and roving onto reclaimed textiles. This process creates a type of contemporary tapestry, bringing a three dimensional element to my impressionistic work."
an exhibition of scenes familiar to western New York, explores the play of light, color, and atmosphere on the landscape.
Reminiscent of works from the Hudson River School art movement, the works reflect the grandeur of nature and share a reverence of the spiritual, offering viewers a space to reflect on the natural world and their place within it.
The exhibition features a selection of 19th century paintings from JCC’s permanent collection as well as works by contemporary regional painters Thomas Annear of Fredonia, Thomas Kegler of East Aurora, and Mikel Wintermantel of Allegany, and large-format landscape photographs by photographer and JCC alumna Janelle Lynch.
