Nancy Ridenour- Recent Works
Nancy V. Ridenour spent her youth in Schenectady, NY, surrounded by a large family involved in the florist business. Flowers and gardens were central to those years, which led to a major in biology while at Cornell University. The natural science thread has been strong throughout her career as a biology teacher at Ithaca High School, in her personal life of gardening and flower arranging, and now her focus in retirement on digital artistic photography.
Nancy retired in 2005 after 32 years of teaching and administration at Ithaca High School. In 2006, she took classes in photography and Photoshop at TC3. That experience enlightened her retirement and developed into a second career as a photographic artist.
The initial floral subject was the lotus flower that grows in her pond. That focus expanded to other Flowers, Macro photography, Buildings at Cornell and NYC, Cement Sculptures located in the Cornell Arboretum, Florida Birds, Travel, and Zoo animals. Floral images are on the walls of this show.
Nancy is a member of The State of the Art Gallery, Ithaca Garden Club, and Campus Club at Cornell, as well as professional science teacher organizations.

Four new members of State of the Art, Ed Brothers, Don Ellis, Patricia Hunsinger and Alicia Sangiuliano, will share the main gallery during November. The artists describe their work as follows:
Brothers, “Drawn to the constantly changing nature of flowing waters, my paintings depict varied views of those environments and personally meaningful places.”
Ellis, who will show a mobile, drawings and paintings “My work expresses the emotion I feel in actual natural settings and in poetry.”
Hunsinger, “I’m fascinated with shapes produced throughout the life span of living forms, miniature and massive shapes, all inter-related and compelling to me because of their similarities.”
Sangiuliano, “I am a multi-media artist using both digital and traditional techniques. I am inspired by psychology, social confines and feminine elegance.”

John Lyon Paul- Stars: Wall Sculpture
John Lyon Paul began to make sculptures at the same time that he began to practice meditation in the 1970’s. These two practices, the receptive and the active, have informed his entire creative life and generated a large and innovative output of artworks. Entirely self-taught, and the master of many materials, John spends about equal time painting and sculpting in the solitude of the studio he built at the end of a dead-end road in the hills near Ithaca, in central New York. About this show, he says, “The three Stars appearing in this gallery are made of delicate rice paper. They as much shadow as substance.”
