Exhibits to open in Earlville

The Daily Star

---- — The summer exhibit season at the Earlville Opera House will begin Saturday with three New York visual artists from Brooklyn, Brockport and Eaton in the galleries.

In the East Gallery, Jeanne Heifetz will pay tribute to postwar Latin-American abstract artists in her “Geometry of Hope” series. Using woven stainless steel as fabric and delicate, acid-etched glass rods as stitching, Heifetz conveys the relationships between logical rules, improvisation, and comprehensible pattern in the natural world, according to a media release. 

In the West Gallery, Christian Carson, assistant professor of art and arts for children at the State University College at Brockport, explores the intersection between human rituals and natural occurrences in “Yardwork.” Working in oil on linen and mixed media, Carson brings together decay, manipulated nature and transformation, the release stated.

A native of the Bronx and graduate of CUNY Hunter College, Rachel Ling has been a Central New York resident since 2009. Her paintings are based on drawings of objects or images of amorphous organic elements. Through a process of collage, she creates images that tell a story or express an interesting juxtaposition, and then translates the collage into paintings. Her work will be shown in the Arts Café Gallery.

A reception for the artists will start at 6 p.m. Saturday.

The Earlville Opera House is at 18 E. Main St. in Earlville. All three exhibits will run through July 6. EOH Galleries are open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.. Admission to the EOH galleries is free.
