October Art Show,
We've enjoyed exhibits by these talented artists and photographers in the past, and now we're delighted to have them back. Here's a little about each of them.
Juanita Finn is a Central New York award-winning artist who has extensive graphic, editorial, teaching, and community organizing experience. She develops exterior painting for barns residences in her Remson studio, where she displays her paintings as well as clay vessels and tiles for a series she is creating entitled Walking the Earth.
Elizabeth Mangele, a photographer from Lake Pleasant, is passionate about "capturing the beauty, power and energy of nature," and says her photos "reveal the intricate details of this magnificent wilderness." She accompanies her photos with inspiring sentences she has written for each.
Shawn Gilmore's use of recycled house paint, a multi-layered process on cloth and different drying times give his art a powerful look. Also an interior designer, Shawn handcrafts sofas and recliners as well as his unusual paintings, and shows his work at his Nelson studio, inside the Route 20 Sofa Company.
Linda LaBella-Morgan, of Kirkville, is a watercolorist, who says she paints in "a creative and narrative style." The series of paintings she will show is entitled "Vivere" (to live in Italian). One group features portraits of her own family, another shows nuns playing life's lessons, and the third is landscapes, painted in a "photo-real style."
Terry McMaster of Camillus will exhibit his photography, which "leans to abstraction and reflects images of the mystery and the often unnoticed beauty of the natural world." His work emphasizes light, color, texture and, he says, "shows the vibrational world that underlies the natural world."
