“Elsewhere and Somehow,” work by Tatiana Malkin and Jesse Grossman
“Elsewhere and Somehow,” a two person show exhibiting works by visual artist Tatiana Malkin and glass artist Jesse Grossman. Malkin explores the theme of going “Elsewhere,” it’s perils and the hopes of reward, through fantastical and dreamlike works on paper. Grossman’s debut showing, “Somehow,” revolves around collaboration, joining forces with other artist to create unique pendants and marbles that could not be realized on one’s own.
These two exhibits consider the themes of darkness and light in varied ways. Visit Petrune Gallery on Gallery Night, September 7, and Corners Gallery on September 14, from 5:00-7:00 to see an entirely different show on the same theme.

Victoria Romanoff (sculpture) & Gillian Pederson-Krag (painting)
Gillian Pederson-Krag and Victoria Romanoff both earned BFA’s from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1962 . It was a period at RISD where there was a huge emphasis on the importance of drawing and they found that the education they received was challenging and inspiring. They took a further step and obtained Masters of Fine Arts degrees from Cornell University in the mid-1960’s.
Even though their work is quite different in their chosen materials and techniques , their former education and training provided a link that has remained visually cohesive.
The Community Arts Partnership thanks the Tompkins Trust Company for their generous sponsorship of the CAP ArtSpace and C.S.P. Management for sponsoring this exhibit.

Dream House by Charlotte Ghiorse
Haunted houses are a metaphor for the aging female. I have been painting images of haunted houses since the beginning of my career 1991. And am trained in Second Generation Abstract Expressionism. My mentor Dennis Byng, would often Ask: Is it really important for you to paint a portrait of a house? Yes! I would say. Painting paint is super exciting but there is something about a broken down building… I can’t quite put my finger on. These images are from 2002, 2007, 2014, 2015. The song remains the same I just can’t stop myself. So I keep going. Because they are fun…
