"Celebration 2018"

Flick Gallery
November 11, 2018
1 PM to 3 PM and running through December 31


A bonanza of artists and crafters are lined up for the holiday “Celebration 2018” at the Arts Center of Yates County.  Sunday afternoon, November 11, from 1:00-3:00, a public reception will be held at the Arts Center’s Flick Gallery, 127 Main Street, Penn Yan.

Laura Wilderis a Master Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, in the Arts and Crafts Movement style.  She makes block prints by hand carving and printing each color on an antique hand-cranked letterpress.  In the tradition of her distant cousin, Laure Ingalls Wilder, her themes explore the “sweet, simple things of life,” especially the beautiful effects of light in nature.

Erin Cridlebaugh, of Squirrel Hill Design and Craft, layers delicate laser-cut wood to create decorative topographic maps of our favorite places in the Finger Lakes.  Her degree in fine woodworking is complemented by her husband’s professional picture framing.

Folk artist Martha Gibbs grew up on a dairy farm in Penn Yan, NY, where her upbringing 

influences her art in its many mediums. She is a keen observer of nature with an attentive eye for detail.  Those qualities and her artistic talent extend to painting, felting, and paper crafts.   Her whimsical Advent calendars have appeal for all generations. Every calendar tells a story; each

window has a playful surprise. The calendars may be framed for continued years of enjoyment.     

Leah Hawley’s art pieces are created with recycled postage stamps from around the world. Once soaked free from envelopes, canceled stamps are trimmed-out using small-blade scissors. The variety of colors, shapes, and lines are skillfully worked into beautiful “paintings”.  Stamp pieces are worked together, stamp to stamp, mosaic style. Shading, depth, feathers, fur – all can be a bit tricky utilizing only stamp bits – but the real challenge comes in the efficient prep/storage/management of all these loose stamps!
