Through Their Eyes: Grandparents and Grandchildren

The focus of the exhibition is how artists see their grandchildren - or their grandparents - in reality or abstraction. It is best described in the words of some of the participating artists.  "I try to create images that go beyond snapshots".  "Our innate creative connectedness is a source of wonderment and joy."  "I've tried to capture the mischievous gleam in my grandson's eyes." "My grand daughter is an amazing bundle of smiles, joy and daily discoveries."

The Curator's aim has been to present a show which is both a visual reminder and a celebration of the very special relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren.

An opening reception is being held in conjunction with Gallery Opening Night on Friday, August 2nd from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.  After 5:00 PM please enter through the BorgWarner door adjacent to the bus shelter on Green Street.

This exhibit is made possible by the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation with grant support from the Community Arts Partnership.
