The Earlville Galleries at the Earlville Opera House open new exhibits featuring the work of two CNY artists: Lisa Iannello from New Berlin and Patricia Coyle from Franklin that examine the introspective nature of the outdoors and in drawers.
In the Arts Café Gallery, Lisa Iannello presents “Conscious Landscapes,” with her plein aire techniques that employ both color and overlapping shapes to express the intertwined emotions born of both critical illness and natural beauty. Iannello’s background includes a BFA in the Fine and Applied Arts program in Medical Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her survival of a rare traumatic medical condition, coupled with growing up among the landscapes of rural Central New York, uniquely inform her present artistic vision. Her work has been exhibited throughout CNY from Rochester to Binghamton and Cooperstown. Link to more about Lisa Iannello.
In the East Gallery, Patricia Coyle presents “Pennies, Bandaids, and Safety Pins: The Objects We Keep Hidden.” The artist takes us into the smallest places of our private lives: dresser drawers. Her installation examines the personal objects people keep inside drawers throughout their homes, either intentionally or absentmindedly – objects that offer revelations about the people who keep them and their relationships. Each drawer in the exhibit is unique, with contents presented like historical artifacts, relevant to a specific person, time, or place. Coyle’s work has been shown throughout Central New York as well as Florida and Vermont. Here’s a link to Patricia Coyle’s website!
A reception will be held from noon to 3 pm on Saturday, March 22. Refreshments will be served, and admission is free. The exhibits will run through May 10.
The Earlville Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street in Earlville. EOH Galleries are open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturdays from Noon to 3 pm.
EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.
