A Binghamton Artist Returns with an Homage to a Family Member

Binghamton-born artist Muffin Ray has moved around the country, most recently to Colorado.  She returns to Binghamton with an exhibit at Orazio Salati’s Gallery. She has been experimenting with new techniques involving found fabrics and polyurethane. The exhibit is also an homage to her brother. http://wskg.org/audio/muffinmix.mp3

An Unexpected Find Leads an Artist in a New Direction

Potter Leslie Green Guilbault was in a professional quandary. She had just finished one job, unrelated to her training in art, and was wondering what to do next. She took a winter walk in the woods with her ten year old son.  He spotted the sad remains of a fawn that had been killed by a coyote. They took the bones home and Ms. Guilbault introduced herself to bone carving.  She also uses the ‘sgraffito’ technique in her pottery to create arresting designs on pieces that more than display pieces; they are useful as well. http://wskg.org/audio/guilbaultmix.mp3
