Artists are keen to this transformation and some focus on this through their artwork. Main Street Arts Gallery is hosting two new exhibitions highlighting the sensory experience of being outdoors in Upstate New York.
From the Dirt to the Skies is a group display. Featuring original pieces in painting, drawing and printmaking, four of the gallery’s artists will be showing their work. Artists include Pat Bacon, Chad Grohman, Meredith Mallwitz-Meyer and Lanna Pejovic. Artwork in this exhibit is inspired by fog-laden lakes, wooden paths, flood waters and objects plucked from nature. Each artist uniquely translates the vision of their immediate environment.
The Finger Lakes: A Sense of Place is a solo exhibition of Jennifer Gibson’s plein air paintings of the Finger Lakes region. Gibson embarked on a yearlong adventure to paint scenes from the Finger Lakes after receiving the 2019 Finger Lakes Community Arts Grant. This display is a culmination of her work.
Wine and snacks will be offered at the opening reception on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. mainstreetartsgallery.com
