Myung Urso in her studio
Myung Urso in her studio I was born in South Korea and moved to Rochester, NY in 2006. Since 2007 I started making jewelry based on my MFA major Fiber Art, which I studied in Seoul, Korea. This is one of the reasons that I have chosen using textural materials for creating my work. Fiber materials Showing the “wear-ability” of my work Jewelry is the media that I have chosen to express my desire of art. It's wear-ability has always been a big challenge which makes my work different from objects. I often challenge myself to broaden the boundaries of jewelry, regarding it as an art form. Home studio Calligraphy I work in a studio within our house with three dogs and two cats. This is one of the reasons that I mainly choose organic materials as they are mostly derived from my daily use. New ideas at times come from a particular material; sometimes begin with a form and other times from a color or any kind of motivation. Necklace -Combination Red My working process is like chasing the origin of the imagination. I directly work without a pre-planned drawing. In this way I am open to how the work can arrive towards its own destiny. This [...]

Based on the real newsboys' strike of 1899, "Newsies, The Musical" recounts how poor and orphaned teens worked together and took a stand against Hearst and Pulitzer, the most powerful publishers in the country. When the moguls raised distribution prices at the expense of the boys' already scanty profits, Jack Kelly — famously played by Christian Bale in the 1992 Disney film the production is based on — leads the newsies on a city-wide strike.… [...]

"Sunboat" Necklace
Hi, I'm Loraine Cooley and I'm honored to be included in the Main Street Arts exhibit Beyond Ornamental. Me at my studio bench At the age of 13, I began my journey as an artist at my father's knee so to speak. My dad decided to teach himself how to create jewelry in his basement workshop and invited me to join him in his discovery of the metal fabrication process. That was over 40 years ago. Since then, some of the things that have contributed to who I am and my recent artwork are: a BFA from The School for American Crafts at RIT, extensive travel around the world, pursuing a degree in the Art Education Program at Nazareth College and engaging in several classes and workshops in all areas of art. I also continue to enjoy teaching and learning from my students at the Memorial Art Gallery where I've taught since 1987. In my studio, creative chaos abounds! Creative atmosphere Creative chaos Work in progress… For me the boat shape is a predominant theme in my one-of-a-kind pieces. I regard the boat as a symbol of the journey each of us takes throughout our lives. Below is my triptych sculpture: PHASES: Birth Chaos Rest Here are more boat [...]

Barbara Minknow open at the Geisel GalleryRochester, New York"Reds" by Barbara MinkLast night at her opening for the Geisel Gallery in Rochester, New York, Barbara Mink was on hand to greet her guests who had come to view her recent paintings. Her exhibition "High Finish" is on view thru August 24th, 2019, so you will have ample opportunity to see her recent paintings selected for her show. I have known Barbara for a while, having first met with her when she was presenting the interesting speakers for Ithaca's "Light in Winter" events which were like TED talks about art and science. Barbara is also teaching at Cornell University and she maintains the Mink Gallery at her home on north Cayuga Street in lovely downtown Ithaca, New York.Geisel Gallery now showing "High Finish"select paintings by Barbara MinkThe Geisel Gallery is a wonderful space in the former headquarters of Bausch & Lomb, and it gives an artist the opportunity to create a focus, a visitor can really get close to look at the colors and textures of these abstract expressionist compositions. Some paintings have explosive energy while others are much more like a collector's cabinet of discrete marks [...]

Curator, Rick Muto at the University GalleryCampus of Rochester Institute of Technologyinstalling"Renewable Futures"thru August 10, 2019Rick Muto. He is smiling now because his job is almost complete. The last few artworks will go up on the wall and the labels will be attached and then in a few hours crowds will arrive for " Renewable Futures". We are in the University Gallery on the campus of Rochester Institute of Technology and the new exhibition opens with over a hundred works of art created by art students who have graduated from RIT during the 1960s and have then gone on to careers in the arts. Some, but not all of these talented people became teachers - in all there are eighteen creative people being honored in this new show. One of them, Paul Garland ( below ) was giving an artist talk at the Axom Gallery recently, and I had a chance to go and hear what he had to say about the development of his art.Paul Garland speaks at Axom GallerySome of the original inspiration for Paul Garland stems from landscape art and this can be seen directly in a large painting of his that was [...]

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 ... [...]
