TWO EVENTS AT ONCE: Gallery Night, October 3, 5pm to 8pm
In the CAP ArtSpace: Clarissa Plank "Overrun"
a series of reduction woodcut prints that investigate the fear and fascination we feel when faced with the natural environment. Insects epitomize this complicated relationship because of their duality; they can induce nightmares, and function as fashionable, pleasing designs at the same time. "I choose to depict insect pests that I am familiar with from growing up in the northeast: these insects are known to farmers, gardeners and residents in this region."
Thank you to the Chemung Canal Trust Company for sponsoring our October exhibit! Chemung Canal Trust Company has been building relationships in the region since 1883 (with four locations in Tompkins County). www.chemungcanal.com

"A mobile needs to be neither a weathervane nor a whirligig. It needs to be ambiguous relative to the wind. Then it will be interesting to watch and it will be involved in its venue. The movement of each piece relative to the other pieces should be unpredictable. Then its encounter with shadows, its screening of objects behind, and its color variations will be unpredictable."
