An Art Opportunity – Funding Our Future

In lieu of the Arts Center’s ever popular silent auction and wine pull (yet another victim of the pandemic and our “abundance of caution” reality) the Arts Center is pleased to offer the opportunity to purchase several original pieces of framed art, which have been donated to the Arts Center by a long-time contributor, three popular visiting artist/instructors and a sorely missed patron.  Available on our website, www.artscenteryatescounty.org, these five paintings and one ceramic sculpture will help generate some of the funding generally received through the several in-person Arts Center events that were put on hold this year.  You are invited to view these artworks in person at the Flick Gallery.
 
Our thanks to the artists for their generosity. 
Don’t miss the opportunity to own a fine work by one of these artists:

From Sunny Point

Kevin Feary’s reputation as a regional painter has been growing exponentially over the last decade.  A resident of Batavia, NY Kevin is a member of the All Weather Gang, Batavia Society of Artists, the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters and the Rochester Art Club (among others).  He’s honed his skills over decades, taking classes and workshops from local and nationally known artists throughout his career.  Kevin is a very popular instructor at the Arts Center, teaching Plein Air and portrait painting and often just wandering the area in search of inspiration for his well-regarded landscape paintings.

GEORGE Van hook

On Keuka

George Van Hook is a nationally recognized painter from Cambridge, NY. He got his start as a professional artist very early in life and was heavily influenced by the Pennsylvania impressionists and the “Brandywine Tradition” of his native state, as well as by the European traditions he studied close up during his high school and college years. George has won awards in many of the area’s Plein Air
festivals, has taught classes at the Arts Center and served as a judge for the Center’s juried show as well as appearing as a featured speaker for one of the Arts Center’s annual dinners. Family and a fascination with the landscape of the Finger Lakes make him a frequent visitor to the area.

Spring Light

Connie berberian

Spring Light

Connie Berberian has long been one of the Arts Center’s most popular artists.  For decades, Connie traveled often from her home in Pennsylvania to the Finger Lakes, recording her impressions of the region in lovingly rendered watercolor paintings.  Keuka Lake and its environs were a particular favorite:  “I visualize the rolling hills with vineyards, small village streets and the seasonal and atmospheric effects on the landscape…I am fascinated by color and the interplay of light and shadow.”  Although Connie now lives in North Carolina, prints of her work are still available at the Arts Center.

On Black Creek

harry orlyk

On Black Creek

Harry Orlyk is a native of Troy, NY and currently lives in Salem, NY near the Vermont border.  Harry’s work was influenced by almost a decade of work in the Great Plains, during and after his time in graduate school in Nebraska.  Undeterred by the challenges of painting in every season, Harry says “Sitting in the cold in a traditional way, I paint what is before me, sometimes as still as the Eskimo who earns his family’s meal by waiting and watching and thinking.  He kills an animal; I make an image.  We are linked together by our years of long studied views across a common land.” Harry’s painting was a gift to the Arts Center from the estate of Richard Dixon.
