Fine Art & Craft


Crochet Vessel by Saundra Elizabeth Goodman

This sculptural piece is part of my "structured stitches" series. It is made of crochet cotton, and the technique involves very tightly worked stitchery that gives the piece structure and strength. This vessel could be used to display dried flower arrangement, or be displayed alongside other artwork of various materials (ceramic, glass) thereby adding a textural element that would complete the visual presentation. Saundra is an Ithaca crochet artist who does pictorials, sculptural forms and whimsical crochet "illustrations".

"Window Meditation" by William Deats

Oil on canvas, framed. 12"x20". On view in CSMA's gallery. I have been painting since I was a child and started to see myself as an artist with something to say conceptually rather than just visually when I was in high school. My most important work is what I am working on presently because it is most current with my life. My genre changes because I change. I am looking for the places where the objective world mixes with the non-objective world. I would say that my concepts about what my work is are more important than the techniques and elements and principles of art, however, I have developed my ability to use these other factors in creating my paintings.

"Early Summer Beyond the Marina" by Diana Ozolins

Oil on canvas. Framed in a maple reveal, 12"x16". On view in CSMA's gallery. This work is a highly textured summer landscape, created in oil paint with palette knife on canvas. It was done on location at the wetlands beyond Alan Treman Marina. Diana Ozolins is an Ithaca based landscape painter working in oils. Color and design are foremost in her painting. Her palette knife technique results in a highly textured surface, where seemingly random shapes coalesce into a surprising sense of reality at a distance. She works outdoors in nature around the Finger Lakes region, and also travels with paint both in the US and Europe. She recently completed a body of abstract work, and also responds to environmental disaster and political upheaval with emotionally wrenching work. Ozolins’ formative years were spent in NYC in the heyday of the East Village arts explosion, where she pursued painting as a personal means of expression, and took advantage of the wide range of museums and galleries. After completing a bachelors degree in education at Syracuse University, and having achieved a secure day job, she was free to pursue formal studies at night at Syracuse University, and SUNY Cortland, and less formally through mentorship and a collegial critique group. Currently, Ozolins is a member of the State of the Art Gallery Ithaca, and shows her work in a variety of local and regional venues.

"New York Farm-to-Fashion" by Helen Trejo

Digital print. 12"x15", matted and framed. On view in CSMA's gallery. Fashion, agriculture, and community are interconnected with the development of clothing made from local resources. The fashion illustration features clothing made with local fibers and fabric. Visit https://youtu.be/xs5ZrjBT2h4 to view a short film showing models wearing the garments illustrated! The curly locks of wool, which act as embellishments, are from Fossil Creek Farm and Old School Handwovens in Norwich New York. The Romney and Blueface Leicester wool was acquired after the closure of a fiber processing mill. It speaks to the legacy of wool growing and fiber processing in the state. The shirt fabrics are salvaged silk from Sew Green in Ithaca New York, and are representative gems that can be found with re-use. The scarves featured are hand-spun and hand-knit, made with alpaca fibers sourced from A+ Fiber Mill & Riverside Alpacas in Jordan New York. The illustration of the sheep was inspired by a lamb at Ironwood Hill Farm Finnsheep in Berkshire New York. There are several fiber farms throughout upstate New York and this illustration is a call for everyone to seek local farms with sheep, alpacas, angora goats, and learn more about the animals, fibers, and creative possibilities. Helen Xiomara Trejo is a graduate student in Apparel Design at Cornell University. Her research explores the interconnections between New York fiber farms, fiber processing mills, and fashion design. She loves to make unique hand-spun fibers, knit, and sew.
