EARLVILLE – The Earlville Opera House Arts Center opens three new exhibits on Saturday from 6-7:30 p.m., (free) to run through November 5. Come help us celebrate our 40th anniversary year with the new exhibitions: Painter Picks Painters an alumni artist exhibit featuring: Sarah McCoubrey, Gary Trento, and Steven Ginsburg, curated by Colgate Professor, Lynette Stephenson, Fleeting Dreams, paintings by Chun Arthur Wang, and Ink and Wax by local artist Yolanda Sharpe.
Showing in the East Gallery, Painter Picks Painters is an alumni exhibition in honor of EOH’s 40th anniversary, featuring three CNY artists: Sarah McCoubrey, Gary Trento, and Steven Ginsburg. Colgate Professor, Lynette Stephenson chose the artists “because of the beautiful paintings that they create and their ability to present a fresh perspective of traditional subject matter.” She continues, “Sarah McCoubrey’s paintings are like little jewels full of rich color and details that pull the viewer into spaces that reveal surprising narratives. Working from the live model Gary Trento’s gestural marks and intense color celebrates the expressiveness of the human figure. Steve Ginsberg builds layers of paint into a saturated surface that moves confidently from the figure to the landscape. The three artists have very different approaches but complement each other very well.”
