Show: “Visual Medium”, September 13th through October 5th, 2008

Avon NY – You are invited to a unique presentation of artwork from two NYS artists:

The paintings of Will Wadsworth – Mr. Wadsworth is a life long resident of Geneseo NY. Inspired by a trip to Italy, Will went back to painting, the passion of his early years. “If you live somewhere long enough the landscape gets into your being. When I am painting I don’t feel like a technician but like a conduit. Sometimes it amazes me to watch what is happening in front of my eyes.”
The ceramic sculpture of Eric Serritella – Mr. Serritella’s sculptures serve as a vehicle to communicate a message about the inherent and perseverant beauty in nature. “Clay is my chosen medium as I appreciate how ceramic reflects the earth’s durability and fragility – strong though easily harmed when disrespected. Regardless, the damage and shards still embrace beauty. Each piece represents nature’s inate beauty and triumph of existence, regardless of the disregard humans have shown her.”
The show opening is September 20th, 4:00 To 7:00 PM – At the Schoolhouse Art Center in East Avon. Built in 1853, the schoolhouse was renovated in 2007 to serve as a gallery and showroom for handmade craft and art work. The original layout and features of the 19th century one room schoolhouse are an excellent backdrop for the work of many NYS artisans. I look forward to having you visit our gallery and would like to ask if you could post/publish the information as well. Thank you!
