No Land Escapes

No Land Escapes curated by Barbara McPhail
Reception Fri, Mar 1, 2013        Feb 1 - Mar 29, 2013

No Land Escapes is an exhibit by six artists from NY State and Wisconsin whose work speaks to the environmental, health, and social issues of continued fossil fuel development.

Pamela Drix  |  Elizabeth Durand  |  Craig Mains
Barbara McPhail  |  Teri Power  |  Kathleen Sherin

The artists’ viewpoints feature many facets of the fossil fuel development issue, including the changed landscape, the potential of toxicity, related water issues, the beauty of the landscape pre-drilling, and spiritual references embodied in Native American ideas of preservation and protection of the earth. The stories told in the images are informative, heartbreaking and hold this self-evident truth; no landscape involved in fossil fuel development escapes impact.

The exhibit includes printmakers featuring unusual scale, sculptural print combinations, innovative and traditional techniques, and artists from varied geographic locations.

All exhibits made possible with help from the Community Arts Partnership
and special support for this exhibit by the Puffin Foundation

"Pictorial references may seem familiar but are intentionally abstracted and remain elusive. Textured and layered imagery raises issues of memory, history, acquisition of knowledge, the transformation of information, and the ultimate mystery that underlies nature despite our elaborate attempts to create meaning.

Marks, the incising of lines, scrapings and fissures serve as a window into the life of materials, but also create a progressive history of alterations of the surface. The intimacy of the small-scale prints suggests notebook pages and imaginary diagrams, or cosmologies, and speaks to human efforts to discover new layers of reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Some of the prints use appropriated imagery from scientific diagrams or microscopy. In more recent prints I have been seeking to free the line from the representation of forms, and use it to create atmosphere and space. There is a sp

ecific energy to each mark and line that can create a sense of fluidity and open-endedness, leading the viewer to multiple interpretations of the imagery."

Light Swallower | work of Roberto Silva

The Ink Shop will also be exhibiting the work of the 2012 H. Peter Kahn Family Fellow, Roberto Silva Ortiz in the Legacy Foundation Gallery.  Mr. Silva Ortiz is both an accomplished painter as well as a printmaker.

Light Swallower displays a work in progress which started in 2011 and was developed between the Ink Printmaking Center and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts. This exhibition articulates a different approach towards the artist's representational art. The series is composed of paintings, prints, light boxes and textiles. Roberto Silva-Ortiz reflects and celebrates artificial light and modern architectures. This results in a visual world - mainly inspired by cities such as New York City, Miami, Oslo, Berlin and the unique town of Ithaca N.Y. - constructed by fascinating symmetries and fractals. A strong dialogue between the analogical artistic horizons and the latest digital procedures creates folding compositions and leads the craftsmanship of the exhibition itself.

The Expressive Mark: Prints from Ithaca College

Opening Reception: Friday May 4, 5-8 PM   Gallery Night
May 4 - May 25  2012

Floating Lanterns Kathy Zink

Artists make marks. The quality of the line in an original print is as distinctive as any handwritten signature. In today’s printmaking practice, artists achieve unique line qualities through different processes, including screenprinting, linocut, woodcut, lithography, and intaglio, sometimes combined in artists’ books. Some of these processes are as old as writing itself! Printmakers explore marks multiple ways. The show celebrates these explorations.
Students and faculty at Ithaca College present a group show of relief, intaglio, and lithographic prints. Faculty artists include: Pamela Drix, Patricia Hunsinger, Minna Resnick, and Susan Weisend.

Pamela Drix teaches relief/intaglio and drawing at Ithaca College and is one of the founders of The Ink Shop. The majority of her work focuses on woodcut and the intaglio processes. She has participated in numerous exhibitions around the world. Patricia Hunsinger teaches lithography and 2D design.  Her work focuses on lithography, screenprinting, and woodcut. She has also been in numerous shows and part of many international collaborations. Minna Resnick, a nationally and internationally known artist, teaches screenprint and drawing at the college. The majority of her work is created through screenprinting and lithographic processes. Susan Weisend teaches book design, relief/intaglio, screenprinting, and lithography, and serves as the Chairperson for the Department of Art. She has exhibited for thirty years both in the Untied States and internationally.  Her prints mainly focus on intaglio and bookmaking. Student artists from last year and this year’s classes have entered prints created in their respective classes.
