Student Art Exhibition: Chittenango Creek The Hundred Year Flood of 2017


A soul-saving collection of stress-relieving wonders that stimulate the creative imagination, an installation by Studio Art student Valentina Heishman. After the July 1 flood of 2017, the 780 feet of creek frontage revealed a candy store of rock, wood, faces and fossils, bones and gnomes. Heishman's exhibition, "Chittenango Creek: The Hundred Year Flood" is a collection of works made from that rich bed that remains to fuel my creative vocabulary. The exhibition runs through March 1.

Guest Art Exhibition: Meet Me There Meet Me Then

The room filling projection of the video "Meet Me There - Meet Me Then" is made with handmade drawings of watercolor and ink, combined with 3D computer technology. It's subject takes us on a journey through a natural landscape where seasons blur together and imagine parallel worlds of both the micro and macrocosm realms. Recognizable plants become vaguely apparent in this animated world where seasons smoothly transition into one and other. Imagined and created by Hooymans’ artistic mind and hand, the journey is symbolic of a longing for contact with another human being within this pure landscape, while time and a sense of place continues to slip away. The exhibition runs through March 5.
