A Senior Summer
On display throughout the Library
from July through September 30, 2009.
The Opening Reception will be held on Thursday July 9, 2009 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the BorgWarner Community Room.
Our local senior artists are connected and interact in many, often profound ways. This display demonstrates some of the explorations and perceptions of shared memories and future dreams.
It is with pleasure the curators present to you images and abstractions as perceived by each artist who accepted the invitation to participate in paintings, photographic elements, or bronze, ceramic, wood, or metal sculptures. Some works reverberate in vibrant colors, others transmit their substance in more muted tones. Composition, color, line, and form culminate in the artist’s creation. The different media represented in this show convey emotion, energy and mood, as expressed solely by each artist. The understanding, harmony, innovation and maturity that these artists have gained is reflected in their work and constitutes their legacy.
When we first started working on A Senior Summer Germaine Colvin was our leader and guide and provided the inspiration for this show.
In recent weeks as she become increasingly ill we necessarily had to take over more of the work involved in curating the show. We have continually kept her ideas and concept of the show in mind.
We now dedicate this show to Germaine Colvin who dedicated her life to art, education and humanity, to all local seniors and to all fledgling artists in our Tompkins Community.
