Stiller Zusman- Up Is Down
Stiller Zusman is currently the resident scenic artist for the Kitchen Theatre. She comes to theater having been making images and objects for over 30 years. Her work follows her fascination with visual anomalies, woven shapes, edges, water, precarious balance and visual space. Her artwork has been shown internationally, in private collections, commissions and public installations of sculpture. She has an MFA in Sculpture (1983) as well as a Masters in Clinical Art therapy (1986). She taught sculpture and painting at SUNY Cortland. Her own teaching studio called Abovoagogo was on Seneca Street around the block from the theater for many years.
The Brain Shoppe, 210 E. State St.
I grew up in California, USA, received a BA in Architecture in 1964, and a MFA in photography from the University of New Mexico in 1973. Following graduation I was appointed as a professor at Cornell University in the Art Department where I taught photography and digital imaging for almost 30 years. In 1999 I retired to pursue my career as an artist full time.
My works have been exhibited nationally and internationally for over 40 years as a photographer, painter, and digital artist. My artwork is in such collections as the San Francisco Museum of Art, Bibiliotech National in Paris, German Photographic Society, and many other locations.
I consider myself currently to be a digital montage artist as I assemble images digitally. Sometimes I use photo’s and sometimes I create in a program on the computer from scratch. I have used a flatbed scanner extensively to scan objects digitally with high resolutions into a computer where I enhance their visual characteristics. I then digitally collage and layer these scans in Adobe Photoshop, adding, altering and collaging for emphasis and interest. Recently I have been creating shaped artworks composed of layers of ink jet giclee prints on canvas, sometimes stretched on wood frames and more recently glued down on a new plastic sheeting material.

Hilando Fino / Finespun
José Buenaventura González and Paulina Velázquez Solís
A dialogue between traditional and contemporary textile art
Un diálogo entre obras de arte textil tradicional y contemporáneo
One medium and two very different artists, both stemming from the deep, complex roots of Latin American culture. Hilando Fino / Finespun brings together the textile works of master weaver and organic dyer José Buenaventura González, an indigenous Zapotec artist from Oaxaca, Mexico, and Mexican-Costa Rican visual artist Paulina Velázquez Solís. Their work engages us in a conversation that explores the human relationship with nature and history, and the interplay of permanence and change in the lived experiences of the artists as individuals and as members of the larger indigenous and mestizo, Mexican and Central American, Latin American and American, globalized communities of which they are part.
Please join us on Gallery Night at 6:00 PM for a guided tour of the exhibition lead by the artists, and at 7:00 PM for a special presentation in celebration of the Day of the Dead / Día de Muertos. Hosted by Cultura! and the Latino Civic Association of Tompkins County.

How Did We Get Here? Migration Exhibit Takes Over CAP ArtSpace in November
From the earliest arrival of the Gayogohó:no people to the stream of students, workers, teachers, artists, researchers, entrepreneurs, refugees and others who come to live here every year, the story of Ithaca and Tompkins County is a story of migration, settlement and displacement.
This exhibition and event series How Did We Get Here? seeks to enrich the local dialogue on these issues, both here and in the world. It is a community response to trends in the national conversation about migration, as well as to the show how the light gets in at the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell.
The exhibit features political cartoons about migration from around the world curated by Nicaraguan cartoonist and Ithaca City of Asylum artist-in-residence Pedro Molina; photography and text from the Their Story is Our Story project curated by Ithaca College associate professor Paul Wilson; and reflections on the Johnson Museum’s exhibition by graphic design students of IC assistant professor Patti Capaldi.
How Did We Get Here? is organized by the People’s Pop-Up Project, an ad hoc consortium of individuals and community groups. The local nonprofit Weave Community is hosting the effort. Partners include Ithaca City of Asylum (ICOA), the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County, Open Doors English, WRFI Community Radio and Cinemapolis. The annual CAP ArtSpace sponsor is the Tompkins Trust Company.
