Landscape and Memory April 8 – May 28, 2010

Thursday, April 1st, 2010
Orange Field #1 Tompkins County Public Library, April 8 – May 28, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 8, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
101 E. Green Street, Ithaca, NY
Curated by Tim Merrick, Landscape and Memory features works that use landscape as a vehicle to explore deeper emotion. While landscapes have been used throughout art history to depict a sense of place, many artists such as Frederic Church, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alex Katz have chosen to use landscape to express a more complex emotional state.

Merrick’s exhibit brings together a collection of work including, paintings, prints and sculpture by local and regional artists that also exhibit a more profound meaning in the landscapes that are portrayed. Featured artists are: Bill Hastings, Christa Wolf, Craig Mains, Dede Hatch, Kent Loeffler, Laurel Guy, Pamela Drix, Ralph Turturro, Suzanne Onodera, and Merrick himself.

This exhibit is made possible by grant support from the Brooks Family Foundation and the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.

Ithaca in Spring: Notes From The Field

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

It is Friday, May 22, 2009. A perfect day in Ithaca, New York. Lilacs in bloom perfuming the air, color splashes of tulips everywhere. We are still getting used to the full technicolor of spring and the return of green…the trees are now fully leafed out and even though it has only been a week or two, it is almost impossible to remember bare trees.  Everyone is outside, savoring the warmth (but not too warm…in the 70s) and the light. They are thinking about mowing lawns, working in the garden.

I am thinking about those things too, and also about getting out there today and capturing the natural beauty all around me on paper.

Throughout spring, summer and fall I will be working outdoors in pastels and recording my NOTES FROM THE FIELD here, posting new work in my online gallery. Stay tuned!
