The Tompkins County Public Library will host a special reception and poetry reading for the exhibit “The Saltonstall Spirit” in conjunction with downtown Ithaca’s Gallery Night, Friday, August 5 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
Curated by Dan Larkin, this multi-media art exhibit features the work of nine artists and writers with connections to Ithaca’s Saltonstall Foundation and Artist Colony. The exhibit includes the work of photographers Dan Larkin, Adam Vincentz, Angela Kelly and Joe Ziolkowski, Printmaker Judy Barringer, Poet Fran Markover, Painters Marianne Barcellona and William Benson and drawings by Joy Nagy. Each of the featured pieces describe, depict or are inspired by Ithaca and the surrounding landscape.
During this free reception, Larkin will be available to discuss the exhibit and featured artist Markover will present a 6:00 PM reading of her poetry.
After 5:00 PM, access to the exhibit will be available by using the BorgWarner Community Room door, which is adjacent to Green’s Street’s TCAT bus shelter and Gimme Coffee.
The exhibit runs through September 29 and is made possible in part by grant support from the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
