In the Ring by Scout Dunbar
Through the exploration of pattern, mark-making, line, and material, Scout Dunbar uses memory as a tool to re-visit childhood. She employs a range of mediums and processes such paint, ink, collage, oil pastel and colored pencil to create abstract images on paper. Her approach to aesthetics ranges; some works are left as simple line drawings and others are filled with color and pattern. Raised in Ithaca and a graduate of Alfred University, the artist is currently based in Brooklyn, NY.

Presentation of an Archaeology Program at the Eight Square Schoolhouse
Join us for our June 9th FFGN Archaeology presentation hosted by Brant Venables, Binghamton University Archaeology Doctoral Candidate, and Carole West, Eight Square Schoolhouse Program Director.
Why is archaeology important, and why is it even more significant as we move into the 21st century? How and why did The History Center become involved in this endeavor? Brant will tackle these questions, highlight several of his current archaeology projects , and then introduce the audience to our on-going summer archaeology excavation program at the Eight Square Schoolhouse, in which the public is invited to participate!
An eclectic range of artifacts from our excavations over the past few years will be on display, including several unique items from last summer’s dig! Question and answer session immediately following the presentation.

Glorious Spring in the Finger Lakes: Photography by Maria Krueger

Back to Basics: Cecile Swift Lippitt
When looking for an image to capture, I am frequently drawn to very basic visual elements such as lines, circles, triangles and squares. These can be found naturally occurring in our environment or can be man-made. Naturally occurring shapes and patterns are often the inspiration for those that are man-made, a blend of form and purpose.

Mirage: Paintings by John Lyon Paul
John’s paintings emerge from a kinesthetic awareness also evident in his sculptures. His use of color and line, with their pulse, vibration, and rhythms, invite the viewer to enter and travel them.
