Touch Drawings: Illustrating My Inner Landscape
(On February 13th from 4 to 5:30pm, Susan is excited to share the details of her TouchDrawing practice! Come to her Artist Talk to learn more and share in her enthusiasm.)
The images in this exhibit were created using TouchDrawing. TouchDrawing is a movement-based art practice that opens a way for what is internal and hard to articulate to flow through your hands and to be externalized as images. Each TouchDrawing session results in series of drawings that can be viewed sequentially. Although this process is not about making “Art,” committing to a regular TouchDrawing practice has resulted in the emergence of evocative images. This exhibit includes individual TouchDrawing images enhanced using various art media. Also included are pieces that represent a sequence of images because often the drawings cannot be fully appreciated unless viewed as part of a series.
Also sharing the CAP ArtSpace in February: The Voting Vanguards Poster Exhibit
Meet the Student Artists and their teacher: Thursday, Feb. 20, 5:00-6:30 pm in the ArtSpace.
This poster exhibit is by Ms. Ana Goldsmith's students at the Lehman Alternative Community School. In partnership with Rejoice the Vote! the “By a Show of Hands” student voting project encourages educators to teach voting rights history through project-based learning, using student-led activities that motivate youth, families and community to get excited about voting. With a local focus and national presence combining art, history and fun, we honor the work of many courageous people whose names should be known, with the goal of achieving voter participation of 80%.
Hosted by the Dorothy Cotton Institute and TCHC as part of their Sisters of Change project.

Night and Day Art Collective
"Be Still in Haste," Landscapes
Night and Day Art Collective co-founders, Johanna Husband and Annie Zygarowicz along with Marie Sanderson and Jennifer Gibson are the artists of the "Night and Day Art Collective". This CAP ArtSpace group exhibition features Annie's curiously, dark surreal illustrations, Jennifer's painterly plein-air work, Johanna's graceful and exquisite paintings, and Marie's richly detailed watercolors. The exhibit title, "Be Still in Haste," is from a poem by Wendell Berry and speaks to the art of living in the moment. "We love that, in the haste of our busy days, we often take moments, as artists, to 'be still' and appreciate the beauty of the landscape around us."

Gallery Night: Friday, April 3, 5pm to 8pm
"The Visual Cosmos of This & That: a three year existential therapy crisis," and other works
This exhibit features a collection of work from three series created between 2015-2018; Excess & Accessibility, Influence & Affect, and Unreliable & Impermanent, all part of Kristina's "This Fine Line" creative endeavors. These series feature ink drawings on paper inspired by an intimate and conscious effort to understand, cope, and engage with the average American human experience. Our world is very complicated. The Visual Cosmos of This & That strikes a balance between chaos and control, empathy and entertainment, and encourages us to think as well as have a good laugh.
Resting in the recently formed Epitaph Collective, This Fine Line ends as Kristina transitions to working with Initiative Studios as Aurora Saint Rose. This exhibit will say goodbye to This Fine Line, concluding with the exhibited digital media series, “What Is Art?”. Artistic influences include Shel Silverstein, Walt Disney, Dr. Seuss, Ralph Steadman, Hieronymus Bosch, Mark Rothko, Damien Hirst, and Banksy. Other influences include Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, Pema Chodron, Kesha, and Seth MacFarlane.

Reid Palmer / Carlton Manzano
Black and White / Landcape Treasures of Tompkins County
This shared exhibit features the plein air oil paintings of Carlton Manzano, and a collection of diptych paintings by Reid Palmer. Reid's paintings explore the relationship between race construction and the reality of our true nature. "I choose diptychs to explore this idea, because in it's simple form we observe race in basic terms: black and white. As a painter and explorer of color, I find this view to be simplistic and inaccurate. Through this work, I hope to communicate that the name of the color we associate with race is often the color of a painting or a person that is of the least importance."
Carlton creates his landscapes from his mobile studio - a minivan - using the steering wheel as an easal. He paints in all types of weather, never discourages by the elements, driving around until a scene or a view strikes him. Working quickly, he captures the moment in confident strokes of the brush. The resulting paintings are fresh, bold and impressionistic.
