Diane Newton and Patty Porter will share the front gallery at State of the Art during October. Their show, DIARIES, is the culmination of two years of daily artmaking to create two bodies of diverse work for their second two-person show.
Porter, an expressive realist painter, uses this body of work as a way of remembering and recording the places she holds dear and wants to explore through the painting process. Newton’s drawings and photographs are emotive and compositional responses to visual situations—landscape, the human figure and the light, shadow and form she has encountered with her camera in the urban environment.
Show dates are October 2-27, 2019, with a reception for the artists Friday, October 4, 5-8pm, Gallery Night in downtown Ithaca. Other gallery artists will show work in the Salon. Hours: W-F, 12-6pm and S&S, 12-5pm. 120 W Martin Luther King, Jr./State Street; curbside parking and ADA accessibility. Contact info: 607-277-1626 and www.soagithaca.org
