Victoria Romanoff (sculpture) 

& Gillian Pederson-Krag (painting)

Gillian Pederson-Krag and Victoria Romanoff both earned  BFA's from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1962 .  It was a period at RISD where there was a huge emphasis on the importance of drawing and they found that the education they received  was challenging and inspiring.  They took a further step and obtained Masters of Fine Arts degrees from Cornell University in the mid-1960's.

This  joint exhibition includes both earlier and more recent work selected to show evolvement  as well as continuity. Even though their work  is quite different in their chosen materials and techniques , their former education and training provided a link that has remained visually cohesive.  Gillian's masterful oil or acrylic still-life paintings and Victoria's engaging wood sculptures display disciplined imagination.

Gillian has had a long career in teaching painting and drawing and Victoria has spent a lifetime saving and restoring historic archtecture.  Both have stayed very active, stayed friends and stayed in Upstate New York when not running off to far away islands, countries or continents.

CAP-a-PALOOZA Art Sale Extraordinaire

Every year, CAP holds a fabulous art sale from donated art as a fundraiser for CAP. Last year we were able to raise $8,000! We ask folks to donate art that they have in their closets and their attics - art that they own but is not seeing the light of day. This provides CAP with a truly interesting assortment of vintage and contemporary art for you to come and buy! All work is priced to GO. Our goal is to have nothing left by the end of the sale, so come and find special treasures, holiday gifts, and perfect art for your walls. (If you would like to donate art, we are accepting art in the month of October. E-mail to make arrangements for drop off.

"Out of Time"

From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the waters of Ithaca Falls, Chris Walters exhibit features long exposure photography that juxtaposes people against both the natural and human-made world. Chris works at CAP's counterpart in Corning, the Arts of the Southern Finger Lakes, and we are excited to show his work in the CAP ArtSpace.
