EXHIBIT: Art in the Finger Lakes

We all know that July – thanks to our celebration of the Fourth – starts out with a bang. Add to that the opening of an inspiring new exhibit – Art in the Finger Lakes - at the ARTS CENTER of YATES COUNTY. Plan to ring in this show on Friday, July 13 at a reception featuring artists Michele Izzo and our own Artist of the Year, Caryl Flickinger.

Michelle Izzo

Caryl Flickenger

Caryl is well acquainted with the Finger Lake region having raised her family in Big Flats and taught in Corning prior to retiring to Keuka Lake. It is no surprise that ART is a passion having both a degree and teaching it. Today she enjoys expressing her creativity in a number of ways but her primary voice is in two-dimensional expression. She has worked primarily in oil since taking a painting class with artist Qiang Huang. Her paintings have enhanced the gallery in Penn Yan for several years and continue to blossom in their vibrancy and perpetually fresh eye. While she leads a busy life as a mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, she still carves out the time to nourish her “first” love. It is no surprise that Caryl is recognized by the Board of the Arts Center as our 2018 ARTIST of the YEAR.
Michele Izzo brings her watercolors to us from her home in the Hudson Valley. Having studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and privately with renowned artists, Edgar A Whitney and Frank Webb, she began her career as a graphic designer eventually opening her own firm in 1991. As a painter, she is the recipient of numerous awards and has served as a signature member of the American Watercolor Society since 1992 and as Awards Chairman for the same since 1998. Her work has traveled in a number of national and international exhibits. It is a privilege to include Michele’s work in the upcoming July exhibit.
We look forward to seeing you at the Arts Center for refreshments on Friday evening and in the days/weeks to follow.
