Jammin’ for Justice
This group of work has been brought together as a collection of art from vital Ithaca community artists in support of two local organizations doing critical anti-racism work — Southside Community Center and the Multicultural Resource Center. Both of these integral organizations work on issues that address cultural and systemic oppression in our local and national landscapes through the power of organized arts and culture as a part of healing the multigenerational/centuries-old wounds that exist in all of us and our communities. Each artist has their own story to bring through their medium and unique perspective of art as resistance to oppression.
Featured Artists: Khalil Bey, Nydia Blas, C. Knightley, Cesar Enciso, Carol Oddy.

Matt Mayers Photography: Seeing the World in a High Dynamic Range
What is High Dynamic Range Photography? The overwhelming beauty of breathtaking sunsets on the lake, gorges, fall foliage, and bridges captured to appear as paintings is an example of this delicate method.
Matt, a Brooklyn and Long Island native, is a two-time Cornell grad that currently works in the non-profit sector.
He has presented his work at the October 2017’s First Friday Gallery at Sunny Days of Ithaca. Matt has puzzles and 4×6 photo cards being sold there. He also has an assortment of mattes, photo cards, and canvases being sold at Americana Winery.
