Jennifer at work
Jennifer at work in her home studio The incredible passion I have for animals and the natural world is what inspired me to learn taxidermy. All the animal elements found in my work are road kill casualties or have died from natural and unpreventable deaths. By preserving them in the very small window of time between death and decay it forces the viewer to see them in a more intimate and surreal setting. By placing them in improbable situations, I hope to remind the viewer of our fragile world. Sculptural piece by Jennifer Schinzing I grew up in Rochester, NY and still call it my home today. I work at More Fire Glass Studio full time, managing the studio and blowing glass. On weekends I volunteer at Wild Wings (an injured bird of prey facility) helping to educate people about the environment. And at home, my husband and I, have 3 rescue greyhounds. Jennifer with her 3 rescue greyhounds Creating and making art from a very young age eventually led me to art school. I graduated from Alfred University, School of Art and Design, where I was exposed to glassblowing and continued to experiment with different materials. My sculptural work is mixed media based. [...]

Me with installation Artist with installation 'You Can't Put It Back In The Box'
Artist with installation ‘You Can't Put It Back In The Box' My name is Bryan Northup and I'm honored that my work “Cautionary Entrails” was selected to be a part of the de/composition exhibit at Main Street Arts. I am particularly pleased that this work found a place to be shown, framed in a such a compelling theme. “Cautionary Entrails” by Bryan Northup I am a Chicago based environmental artist, originally from Northern California. I have been making art for most of my life, drawing horses during church sermons and taking any and all art classes offered in high school. I graduated from California College of the Arts in Oakland, California with a BFA in Fine Art Photography and since then have been a self taught, intuitive artist. Earlier work, 2000 – 2014 I work in several media including cold and warm glass, painting, mixed media sculpture and photography. Until recently, I focused on working with glass, from traditional stained glass and mosaics to experiments with recycled bottles, creating kiln-formed, functional tableware, lighting and sculptural works.

Lake Cayuga, view from 5th floor ofHerbert F. Johnson Museum of ArtCornell University CampusThe city of Ithaca is nestled at the inlet to Lake Cayuga - one of the fantastic Finger Lakes - and you may take in the view from the panoramic windows along the 5th floor of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art on the campus of Cornell University. The building designed by the now late I. M. Pei was built in the early 1970s and while I was a graduate student at Cornell I watched it being built outside the window of my studio next door.Flashback: Cornell at that time did have a small art collection housed on campus which moved to the new museum once it opened. I remember a very important show by Robert Smithson then that was written up in all the art magazines. This exhibition set in motion a trend in "site-specific" art that also included Earth Art - a movement that was about to take hold. So, Ithaca was trendy! That was about fifty years ago! Then, the Ithaca Commons was just being considered... before State Street ran right through the center of this [...]

Signs of Spring: Trillium in Ithaca, NY2019Time out to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Take a deep breath and then plunge ahead. This month is fulfilling in many ways. The change in weather means more sunlight, and flowers respond!Time also for an opening of an exhibition that I have been planning on for months at the Corners Gallery up in Cayuga Heights, Ithaca, New York. Alan Singer pictured pulling a print edition for The Print Club of RochesterI am a printmaker, painter and Professor of Art at R.I.T. and I have curated the show called "Process and Purpose, 2019". Included in the new show at Corners Gallery are eight contemporary printmakers who all have a story to tell in each individual work on display. We had a great crowd at the opening and all of the artists were in attendance.Minna Resnick, one of our printmakers at the openingThere are established relationships between the artists of friendship and community and there is also a conversation between the artworks on view. Maybe it is color, or maybe it is the mood expressed but each print is engaging as a composition [...]

"Culturally we tend to speak about race very much in dichotomy. It's an 'or' situation. And for the most part, many people are 'and,' but linguistically and culturally we don't give them space to be 'and.'" The latest group exhibit at Loud Cow -- one of Rochester's most experimental art spaces, located in a barn in Spencerport -- opened on Saturday night. For this iteration of the biannual shows, Loud Cow's founder Aaron Delahanty turned over curatorial duties to artist Amanda Chestnut, who gathered an international, diverse group of eight artists who each tackle the concept of identity in their work.… [...]

Summer 2018- When POST started five years ago, I was against it. Starting a business is hard enough but when that business is in a dying segment such as print, the endeavor seemed in every way doomed. My concerns about revenue, circulation, distribution, etc. would soon be overshadowed, however, by the excitement, fulfillment, fascination, and meaning this business would bring. Oh how ... [...]

A lead complainant in the federal UR case starts a new life while waiting for justice- How did Celeste Kidd's (Dr. Kidd is a professor in UR's Brain and Cognitive Science department) sharing of her experiences affect you? It really brought a lot of things into focus for me about women's rights, about students' rights, and about how vulnerable they are and how they need protection to have the space to learn freely ...
