Pamela Drix, New Work
The Community Arts Partnership’s ArtSpace presents Pamela Drix’s new “Red and Black Series” featuring color woodcuts, with additional inclusions of sewn elements, sculptural constructions, and original wood matrices. The series explores the margins, reframing the idea of beauty in the context of cultural fragments. Shifting grounds and sewn applications add new dimensions in viewing beauty of the natural world. Pam is currently a lecturer in the Art Department of Ithaca College, and was co-founder of the Ink Shop and Printmaking Center.

Lot 10 106 S Cayuga St
Brook Long will be exhibiting through the month of February. Brook uses simple methods to fragment, arrange, construct, and abstract architectural space. The use of transitional shifts evoke ambiguity within the spaces. She creates the illusion of continuously changing environments using lines, geometric forms, and a quirky color palette.
