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

First Friday Art Night-Jill Hoffman

Visit the Museum of the Earth on First Friday Art Night, April 6, 2018, from 5-8 pm, to see mixed media animal portraits with a supernatural twist by Ithaca artist Jill Hoffman. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours for this show in the Museum’s Gift Shop. An artist “for as long as I can remember,” Jill Hoffman studied studio arts and visual communication in high school, winning a National Gold Key from the Scholastic Art Awards. After high school, she completed a scientific illustration internship and went on to obtain a degree in Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2008. Her artwork stems from a deep interest in animals, nature and the symbols behind them.

“Rhythm & Light” Art by Victor Lay

Rhythm & Light are key components of any art, as the rhythm of the arrangement is illuminated by the light. Here is an exhibit that shows plenty of that rhythm in nature, man-made objects and people, all in a variety of light. The opening will be Friday April 6th from 6-9pm with The Dude & The Damned as the featured band.
