Beyond the Periphery features landscape paintings by Mary Cantline and mixed media art by Kris Rozelle.
This exhibit opens Friday, April 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the SLC Arts Gallery at the Potsdam Town Hall, 18 Elm Street with a meet-the-artists event.
Mary Cantline of St. Regis Falls creates landscape paintings which capture the natural light of rural Northern New York, both out-of-doors and from her studio overlooking the St. Regis River. Cantline’s paintings express the natural light, ever-changing color, luminescence, and atmospheric conditions of the seasons.
The work of Kris Rozelle of Norwood reflects on personal journeys through pain, illness, hardship, joy, and peace - as a chrysalis waiting to break free. Her paintings are a conduit to her inner self and a way of reflecting and recounting where she’s been, where she is, and where she is going.
Community members are invited to come as they are, and learn more about these artists and their inspirations during the April 20th event. Starting at 6:00 pm, Alex and Kayla French of Potsdam will present a 30-minute poetry reading.
This event is FREE, open to everyone, and wheelchair accessible. Art sales benefit the artists and SLC Arts. This exhibit will be on display at the SLC Arts Gallery at the Potsdam Town Hall, 18 Elm Street, through April 18th. The Gallery is open during Town Hall business hours, Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
