A Chat with Nancy Ridenour about her solo show NEAR AND FAR

Artist photographer Nancy Ridenour will be at State of the Art Friday, August 23, between 3-6pm to welcome visitors to view “Near and Far,” her exhibition at the gallery during August. Subjects include flowers from her spectacular Ithaca garden and abstracts from sculptures made by Cornell architectural students in 1963. As a biologist and former Ithaca High School biology teacher, Ridenour is drawn to birds of Florida and animals in zoos and the resulting photographs are part of her show. She has her camera with her at all times to capture the essence of sites and objects she encounters—places as far away at Rome, Paris and Egypt. This show runs through September 1. The gallery is located at 120 W Martin Luther King, Jr./State Street with curbside parking and ADA accessibility. Hours: W-F, 12-6pm and S&S, 12-5pm. Info:  607-277-1626 and
