Future Memory Opening Reception and Artists Talk
Future Memory exhibition features trio of women artists with local roots during Glimmerglass Film Days
Special art exhibitions have become an integral aspect of Glimmerglass Film Days. This year’s show at the Smithy, Future Memory, will run from November 9-18 and features works by Megan Adams Irving, Ava Fedorov, and Ashley Norwood Cooper. All three artists have a strong connection to our region: Irving and Fedorov spent their childhoods in Otsego County and both studied art at Bard College, and Cooper, though raised in the South, has lived in the area for decades. In addition to their compelling and highly original artistic practices, each of the three also teaches, sharing vision and expertise with another generation. Gallerist and Exhibition Curator is Sydney Waller, who is also a founding member of the Film Days Steering Committee.
“The art in Future Memory offers messages to sift, decipher and ponder, in keeping with this year’s Film Days theme. It’s extra special for me because all three artists have local roots in our tiny corner of the world, and yet, their work can also stand squarely on a global stage,” says Waller. Film Days will present 27 film events November 9-13, along with filmmaker talks, live music, local food and drink, and guided walks. Details at glimmerglassfilmdays.org.
The Exhibit Opening and Artist Talk takes place on November 7 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Smithy and will feature Ashley Norwood Cooper, Megan Adams Irving and Ava Fedorov.
