When the Wind Comes Right Behind the Rain
Point of Contact Gallery, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse, NY
“When the Wind Comes Right Behind the Rain” is an exhibition of eight artists: Rebecca Aloisio, Patti Capaldi, Jennifer Paige Cohen, Melinda Laszcynski, Fabian Maraccio, Paul O’Keefe, Bret Shirley and Sarah Sutton. Paul Wilson, associate professor of art history at Ithaca College, ascribes the collective artwork as evidence of human influence to the Earth. This is through the form and content of painting, sculptures and prints, which are “witnesses to our own extinction.”
Opening Reception: Friday, October 25, 6-8 PM
Drawing upon shared painterly interests in material and space, Earthly Delights pairs the work of Terry Suprean and Melinda Laszczynski. The exhibition is comprised of new small paintings and drawings from each artist that address the notion of landscape in different ways.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 7, 2019 5-8 PM
Following the opening a Sound Performance curated by Gerritt Wittmer will take place from 8:30-9:00 featuring Simon Whethem.
Location: Arc House - 1008 Edwards, Houston, TX 77007
