Elemental: The 64th Exhibition of Central New York Artists
Elemental showcases the work of eight Central New York artists whose expression is of or about earth, fire, water, and air, forces of nature that forge spirit and matter. Within these guiding parameters the exhibition includes diversity of form (from the material to conceptual) and meaning (from celebratory to cautionary).
Elemental honors two PrattMWP artist-faculty, Lisa Gregg Wightman and Bryan McGrath, as they near retirement. Lisa's work embraces natural phenomena–– in materials, form, and allegory–– as she seeks the transcendent in her meditative works on paper. Bryan is a ceramist whose material is earth itself, touched by water and fire. Elemental presents their work within the context of their Central New York peers, with whom they have contributed to the artistic community of this region.
