Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, will present “Neighboring Visions,” a group show featuring works by three Tully artists, throughout December.
The exhibition—showcasing jewelry by gallery director Sarah Panzarella, pottery by Jeremy Randall and paintings by Grant Dolge—opens 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 6 as part of Skaneateles’ First Friday art walk. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Usual Suspects.
Panzarella, a ceramics artist known for her porcelain cups and bowls and ornate teapots, is introducing her first jewelry collection.
Her pottery has 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 is held in the permanent collections of Nottingham Arts in San Marcos, Calif., and the Meyerhoff Family in Baltimore.
Panzarella earned a bachelor of fine arts degree 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.
Randall, recognized by Ceramics Monthly as an Emerging Artist for 2009, is owner/operator of Jeremy Randall Ceramics, digital imaging/web specialist and head of installations at Imagine, studio manager and visiting professor of art at Cazenovia College and adjunct professor of ceramics at Syracuse University, his alma mater.
A participant in such renowned craft shows as the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and the Strictly Functional Pottery National Show in Pennsylvania, he has had works appear in Ceramic Arts Daily, Clay Times, Ceramic Review, Stone Canoe, and “500 Vases” and “500 Cups” (Lark Books).
Over the past year, he has exhibited in “99 Bottles” at Crimson Laurel Gallery in Bakersville, N.C., the Worcester (Mass.) Center for Crafts Annual Bowl Show, the Memorial Art Gallery Clothesline Arts Festival in Rochester, “Gifted—The Annual Holiday Show” at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia and “Let There Be Light—38th Annual Holiday Show and Sale” at Lillstreet Gallery in Chicago.
Dolge, the owner of Dolge Studio, works in watercolors and pastels, painting landscapes from his travels in Italy, England and France, along with landscapes of Central New York. Other subjects include florals, seascapes, abstracts and still life.
Dolge earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology. After graduation, he studied with Fritz Trautman of the University of Rochester, “whose color theory of arranging a palette based on color wavelengths has influenced my painting the most,” he says.
This will be Imagine’s last show of the season; exhibitions and openings will resume in May 2014.
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.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, with extended holiday hours starting Dec. 18.
