Gallery Night: Torie Tiffany, “Anthology”

Inspired by the elements, inhabitants and connective energy of our universe, Torie Tiffany creates digital collage by blending these aspects in a synthesis of photography and digital painting to result in a unique image of oneness. Presented in giclee on canvas, each piece is accompanied by a descriptive vignette written as an extension of her expression. Samples from all five series of her work will be on display

An Artist Looks at How We Learn and What We Learn

Play

‘This is the Way We Play and Learn’ is an exhibit of works by artist Rich Harrington at the Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts Gallery on State Street in Binghamton. He uses images from reading textbooks from the 50s and 60s.  He uses these evocative images with humor to make a more serious point about that era. http://wskg.org/audio/harringtonmix.mp3

Revealed: WPA Murals on display at the Johnson Museum

Play

In 1935, the Federal Art Project was established. It was part of President Roosevelt’s Work Progress Administration, and employed thousands of artists over the next decade to create art for public spaces in federal buildings. Four murals – by Ilya Bolotowsky, Albert Swinden, Joseph Rugolo, and Dane Chanase – were commissioned for the Hospital of Chronic Diseases on Welfare Island (later named Goldwater Memorial Hospital, Roosevelt Island). Goldwater Hospital was set to be demolished, to make way for a new building. But first, three of the murals were removed.
