Tonight's series opener features artists Trish Coonrod and Cary Joseph, whose work is on view in the 65th Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition. Included in MAG admission.

Coonrod, of Ithaca, studied painting at Washington University and the New York Academy of Art, then spent eight years as a painter in the studio of influential artist Jeff Koons. She paints from life, typically fruit or flowers, and enjoys studying how “light reveals form and how colors transition across the planes.” This is her second Finger Lakes

Joseph, also of Ithaca, is a studio potter whose work has been informed by his life as a musician. “I took to heart the way the great jazz innovators continued to push into new territory, took artistic and commercial risks, and stretched their mediums’ boundaries.” He has three pieces of thrown, stretched and wood-fired stoneware in this, his first Finger Lakes. Previously at MAG, his work was selected for three recent Fine Craft Shows.  

This series is made possible by the Sandra G. Dreyfuss Education Endowment Fund.
