Opening Reception: Made in Midddlefield Part II

Opening reception 5-7PM at the fun and lively Art Garage at 689 Beaver Meadow Road, one mile from Cooperstown and adjacent to the ‘Clark trails’ and the Robert Sterling Clark Meadow. Visitors are requested to please park on gallery lawns, not on town road. All welcome. A rich exhibition of sublime photographs of the land ( by Jamie Young in full color) and of the classic human form (by Jessica Marx) — plus poignant down-on-the-farm black= and-white photographs of a local, enterprising Jersey dairy operation, Lentsville Farm, run by the youngest generation of a multi-generation of a longtime farm family, the Krahams of Middlefield. IN addition to the photography, the exhibition Made in Middlefield Part II: Photography and Sculpture, presents an array of 3D work that includes a pristine sculptural casket fashioned by farmer / casket-maker Frank Ward (1861-1932) and virtuoso ceramic sculptures by Eileen Murphy, Robert Seward and Nancy Wiener. Murphy’s salt-glaze vessels teem with wildlife, Seward presents quirky clay figures that sprang from bits of leftover clay, and Ms Wiener’s powerful elemental art forms exude presence. Additionally, look for mysterious, theatrical shadowboxes by Peter Marcalus and a game of chance socio-political commentary, and wooden objects carved by Ward Green (1932-2023), grandson of Frank. Something for everyone! The exhibition is on view through May 11, open Saturdays 11-2 and seven days a week with a telephone call or text to 315-941-960-7, or email leartgarage@gmail.com.
