Big Moon by Madeleine Bialke
On April 29 Four Artists an exhibit featuring four talented picture-makers curated by Arthur Whitman will open at Tompkins County Public Library and will be on display through the end of June.

For Four Artists, local art critic and curator Arthur Whitman has assembled a quartet of diverse and talented picture-makers.  Madeleine Bialke was raised in Trumansburg and is currently completing an MFA decree in Painting from Boston University's School of Visual Arts.  In her paintings and prints, she takes a visionary approach to landscape that merges observtion and imagination.  Scout Dunbar is a former Ithacan and currently lives and works in New York City.  In her works on paper, she combines diverse technique and prsonal cosmology.  Stephen Phillips, a long-time local artist, brings a depth and subtlety of conception to the traditional genre of oil on canvas still life.  Gizem Vural is new to Ithaca and a rising talent in magazine and newspaper illustration.  Her digital cartoon imagery is concise and witty.

An opening reception will be held in conjunction with Gallery Opening Night on Friday, May 6, 2016.

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