Bubblescapes and Abstracts
Daniel McPheeters shows new work in May in “Bubblescapes and Abstracts. His “bubblescapes” are landscapes rendered obsessively in circles. He says this work also demonstrates new exploration in color using abstract imagery. Reception: Friday, May 3, 5-8pm, Gallery Night in downtown Ithaca.
A temporary sand installation using a variety of clear glass forms as lenses and tools - to shift and magnify, reflect and project, the colors and patterns on the surface of the sand.
Unlike the small pedestal arrangements seen previously at SoAG, this installation is 'made in place' on the floor of the Salon, creating an imaginary landscape.

Message from the juror Laurie Snyder:
Burning down the house. Talking Heads 1983
I don’t wanna hurt nobody
Somethings sure can sweep me off my feet
Something is out of the ordinary.
I am an ordinary gal….burning down the house.
And well you might ask, what am I looking for?
And who am I to make these selections.
I am Laurie Snyder, retired photography educator and photographic artist. I taught for more than 30 years: at TC3, Ithaca College, Cornell, Syracuse University, Anderson Ranch and finally for 21 years at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.
Many people in this room are familiar faces!
I am always looking for images that evoke another layer of meaning: a mood, a spirit, or even a rhythm, or tone. I am also interested in images that are the tip of the iceberg of long committed investigations. Every image in this exhibit is worthy of commendation – it is each artist’s thoughtful selection. And I respect that process. Yet I was asked to choose and identify some images that spoke out to me.Either the image was entirely fresh to my eyes or it vibrated with its history.
A Former Members Exhibit showcases works by artists who helped to establish the State of the Art Gallery. Works by current members not showing in January are featured in the Salon.

Solo exhibition from Eva Capobianco
“Roots – Real and Remembered,” a show of sculpture and cross-stitched work by Eva M. Capobianco, will be held at State of the Art Gallery during May. The “real” roots in her work, Ms. Capobianco says, have been found on trails and roads near her home and beyond and they are combined with re-used bits of old furniture, glass and other objects collected over time. This series is a continuation of themes she has explored for years.
The “remembered” roots are memories from her childhood and youth, a new autobiographical series, stitched into both words and images. Not every piece in the show contains a root, she says, but this is the dominant connecting element in both series.
Meredith Ann Fuller will be in the gallery to discuss her award winning debut novel.
Kirkus Reviews has released their list of Best Indie Books of 2017 and Meredith Ann Fuller’s debut novel Quarry has made the list. Quarry portrays the difficulty of coming of age in immigrant families that have suppressed painful histories.
Fuller, who lives in Omaha, Nebraska, stated, “Being included on this prestigious list is quite humbling and very exciting for Quarry. As a writer I want to tell stories that resonate, educate, entertain and allow the reader to be a part of the narrative. I’m thrilled that Quarry is being recognized and accepted in the literary community.”
Resurrecting a lost 19th century tradition, the artist Joan Anderson has designed a
stunningly illustrated novel for adult readers of our time. Published by Mountain
Water Press, Quarry is a gorgeous book to hold and savor. Over forty illustrations
grace the pages, inviting readers to follow Rose’s journey toward understanding her
Painting and sculpture by Jane Dennis and Diana Ozolins.
Dennis’ metaphorical paintings and sculptures explore the psychological and bureaucratic structures that people create to order or disorder their world, while Ozolins’ realistic paintings celebrate the beauty and wonder of our natural world.
