Winter Wonderland: Almost Black and White
Sunday, February 5 from 3 – 5 pm at the Arts Center of Yates County
Exhibit to Celebrate Winter’s “Almost Black and White” Wonders
While the characteristic grey of a western New York winter may be a challenge for some, the Arts Center of Yates County’s artists choose to celebrate wonders of winter with a warm-hearted exhibition of work that is “Almost Black and White.” The first in a year-long series of exhibits envisioned as a “tribute to Earth”, Almost Black and White features the work of Rochester print-maker Ron Netsky and a surprising variety of three dimensional work created by Penn Yan native Jamie Sisson using concrete. Winter scenes and other pieces done in limited color palettes by local and regional Arts Center members will also be on display.
Ron Netsky teaches printmaking at Nazareth College and the Woodstock School of Art. His exquisite etchings and lithographs focus on the natural environment, gravitating toward interplay between the organization and chaos found in nature. Sound of his prints can be seen in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC as well as in SUNY New Paltz’s Dorksy Museum of Art collection.
A builder and small businessman by trade, Jamie Sisson started experimenting with other applications for concrete in 2011. He quickly became passionate about designing and creating a wide range of one of a kind pieces with this all natural medium. From countertops to lampshades, tables to bowls, Jamie continues to stretch perceptions of the uses, beauty and flexibility of this construction staple.
Almost Black and White – Winter Wonderland opens on Sunday, February 5 from 3 – 5 pm at the Arts Center of Yates County, 127 Main Street in Penn Yan. The opening reception includes music, winetasting, hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to meet and talk with the exhibiting artists. Everyone is welcome at this no cost event!
