An exhibition of new works by gallery co-owner Sarah Panzarella will open Nov. 2 at Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles.
“Forms of Function” will feature ceramic vessels, mugs, pie plates, candlesticks and butter bells by the Tully artist, whose works have been exhibited at galleries across the country.
The opening is part of Skaneateles’ First Friday celebration. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Usual Suspects. The exhibition runs throughout November.
Although Panzarella says nature is the primary inspiration for her work, she also draws from the Arts and Crafts Movement—and its focus on craftsmanship, function and quality—and the Art Nouveau aesthetic.
Her works have been featured in exhibitions at Baltimore Clayworks, Gulf Coast Community College, Cazenovia Art Park, the Thrown Together Gallery in Louisville, Ky., the Chiaroscuro Galleries in Chicago and the Media Image Gallery in Gainesville, Fla., and appear in the permanent collections of Nottingham Arts in San Marcos, Calif., and the Meyerhoff Family in Baltimore.
Panzarella earned a BFA in ceramics from Syracuse University and a master’s degree in teaching from Bennington College, completing additional study at the University of Florida and the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.
Imagine is located in the lakeside village of Skaneateles, nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. It represents artists from across the country and Canada, along with many Central New York artists, to create one of the most diverse contemporary art collections in the area.
In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Imagine will host a Business After Hours Nov. 15 for members of the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, with extended holiday hours after Thanksgiving.
