Four Artists in Time to open at EOH Galleries

On Sept. 28, the Galleries of the Earlville Opera House welcome four artists influenced by time in very different ways, according to a media release.

According to the release: John Knecht captures moments in time in the drawings that become the foundation blocks of his animated films. Lynn Schwarzer’s work asks, “How does the passage of time change the way that we interpret and verify information, and the sources we look to?” Anne Stillwaggon is able to render to paper a sense of place and time frequently overlooked. Jesse Koroiwa looks to the troubled time period of the Japanese American Internment in hopes of creating a better future.

Knecht and Schwarzer will share the East Gallery with “Drawings and Prints.” Although primarily known as a film and video artist, Knecht’s animated films are based on drawings done by hand with pencil and gouache on paper. This exhibit is the first time all of these works on paper have been shown collectively. Knecht holds the Russell Colgate Distinguished Professor of Art and Art History and Film and Media Studies Chair at Colgate University in Hamilton, where he has been teaching since 1981. 

Schwarzer will show some of her new “Field Notes” prints. Her studio is filled with original publications from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, a collection of periodicals, books and newspapers that comprise a journey through time exploring the domain of knowledge and the implicit subjectivity of information sources, as well as how natural science and history are elucidated both in specialized and layman’s terms, the release said. She has lived in Madison County for 30 years, working as an artist and teaching printmaking and drawing in the Department of Art and Art History at Colgate University.

Stillwaggon exhibits “In the Distance” in the Arts Café Gallery. She is a self-taught watercolorist inspired to capture the effects of light and water and the serenity of form she sees in landscape. She uses watercolor and gouache and a limited palette to paint her subjects, working with brush, sponge and steel wool. Her paintings strive to convey the animate harmony of nature.
