Paintings by Kathy Schlough
Kathy Schlough began painting about 15 years ago, and jumped right in
with a vigorous passion to accurately illustrate the natural beauty
that she found herself surrounded by in everyday life. She began with
small items such as an apple or grapes on the vine but quickly moved
on to more challenging arrangements.
As her artistic abilities improved Kathy began incorporating Feng Shui
– another passion of hers – into her illustrations. Paintings such as
the Buddha and the Rose, Bamboo Stalks, and the Mallards all display
heavy Feng Shui influences.
Kathy was a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators where
she learned to recreate common plants such as a milkweed in exquisite
detail. Many examples of “weeds” can be seen in her work, showcasing
her eye for beauty in otherwise underappreciated plant species.
Kathy passed away in 2018 after battling stage 4 ovarian cancer for 18
months. The artwork she left behind reminds us of her passion to
challenge herself with new pursuits, her love of nature and the
natural beauty of this world, and her caring eye for the often
underappreciated aspects of life.

Lindy Joy Cummings 2019
My photos are all about ice, light, color, shape. Since water reflects what is around it, whether it is melted or frozen, and since I take my photos outside, it is often the sky that is reflected. It can be sunrise or sunset or a bright blue sunny day or lovely puffy clouds…and it will show in my ice. Or it the background could be a patch of winter grass that the deer dug up..
Sometimes the day is so dull and grey that I take the ice back to my porch, find the best light and put some color nearby for it to reflect.
In the Finger Lakes we grow lots of grapevines, both cultivated and wild. In the early spring it might rain and drops gather in the coils of grapevine, and then in the night freeze over. If you arise before the sun melts them you will see the ice crystals caught in the vines.
Also in the spring we might get a freeze after the flowers have bloomed, so you will see flowers in some. It is always a surprise to see what the day will bring.
So if you see some old crazy lady in ski pants and rubber boots and two down jackets, and a pink face mask lying in a creek…don’t panic it is probably only me looking for the magic of ice.
Lindy uses a Rebel T1i with a 60mm macro lens and Lightroom editing programs for contrast, cropping, and sometimes a slight color boost. Mostly what you see is what she found. These photos were taken in the Ithaca area, and in Sussex, England. To see more go to www.SmugMug.com wand search for Lindy Joy Cummings or go to www.LindyJoyCummings.com

Signs, and What Remains by Nic Belott
Local photographer Nic Belott explores feelings of isolation and change through images of commercial landscapes in his series “Signs, and What Remains.” On display at Gimme! Coffee the Cayuga Street location for February 2019.
By highlighting ubiquitous locations and zooming in on a particular moment, the viewer can appreciate the work of time and the hands of other actors like human markings and the growth of plants or the fading of wind.
Cognizant of temporality “And What Remains,” is also a question for both the physical structures displayed and the emotional imprint they exude.
