Stevens-Gupta: Color Therapy and the Healing Power of Art

Certified color therapist and international award-winning artist Ivy Stevens-Gupta will exhibit her paintings with the primary focus being color. Colors generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents or fields of energy. Paintings in soothing blues and greens may help reduce anxiety and depression. Warmer colors like red and orange often energize us. Stevens-Gupta uses multiple layers of acrylic paint, ink, oil and resin to create her abstract florals and landscapes. 

Lifelong – April

Sue Kilgore Mykonos, A Greek Island

Suzanne Kilgore, Watercolorist

Suzanne Kilgore started drawing, using pencils, when she was very young. One of her favorite pastimes was sketching comic book characters; soon she began trying for more realism and portrait painting.

Growing up in Cincinnati, she visited and took art classes at the Cincinnati Art Museum–by way of three streetcars.

After 30 plus years as a mother, wife, nurse, and community volunteer, Suzanne retired in late 1990, and revisited her enthusiasm for the arts.  She joined the Lifelong art Program, and now works primarily in watercolors. For about the past year, Sue has taken some time away from painting, primarily because of health problems.  She hopes to resume in the near future.

The exhibit of Suzanne’s watercolors will be up in the gallery at Lifelong from April thru the last week in May.

“Sisters of Change”

Also in the ArtSpace, a photo exhibit of twenty-six SISTERS OF CHANGE–unsung sheroes for racial and social justice whose names everyone should knowa partnership of the Dorothy Cotton Institute and The History Center. This is the fourth in a series of monthly programs about the contributions of a powerful sisterhood for civil and human rights, many of whom were close colleagues of Dorothy Cotton. Their bios and blurbs can be found in the Atrium Tower digital kiosks, in the lobby of 110 N. Tioga Street, but this portrait gallery of their images is another opportunity to undo the obscurity and erasure of women who committed their lives to democracy and freedom by getting power to the people.

Night and Day Collective presents “Be Still in Haste,” Landscapes 

Local artists Marie Sanderson, Johanna Husband, Jennifer Giibson and Annie Zigarowizc are the “Night and Day Collective”. This group exhibit features Annie’s mysterious night landscapes, Jennifer’s fresh, luminous plein-air work, Johanna’s graceful and exquisite paintings, and Marie’s richly detailed watercolors. The exhibit title, “Be Still in Haste,” is from a poem by Wendell Berry and speaks to the art of living in the moment. “We love that, in the haste of our busy days, we often take moments, as artists, to ‘be still’ and appreciate the beauty of the landscape around us.”
We thank the Tompkins Trust Company for sponsoring our CAP ArtSpace year round and we thank Fingerlakes Wealth Management for sponsorship of our March exhibit.

DWELLiNG in MY SouL//////Black, the color

A show of Paintings and Prints by Colleen Shelton and Charlotte Ghiorse a.k.a. House of ChoCLeT. Loosely associated riffs on the comfort of the color Black and our tribal experience of identifying with and being connected to our dwelling places. The Business of Adorning ourselves with our home, and wearing our home in the outfit. Identity as a form of protection. Subject to personal interpretation. Colleen’s Prints and Paintings of Masks are very personal and playful images relating to identity. She uses her own image as a template. Charlotte’s Paintings are about being a wandering soul and feeling like she doesn’t belong anywhere, as well as Voyeurism, Identity, belonging to a place and Day Dreaming, the void… and the safety of the color Black. At 6:00 PM on Gallery Night, the artists will host Poetry in the gallery with Sarah Wolff, Emily Sanders Hopkins, and others…and a House of ChoCLeT giveaway! And join us at 7:00 PM in the dance studio for a performance by CSMA’s adult Modern Dance class.

Artist Cole Stearns

Hi my name is Cole Stearns. I grew up in a musical family and for me music and drawing have always been something that happens together. Whenever I draw I put on some music, usually one artist for each drawing. My drawings seem to change depending on the music I’m listening to.
