Concurrent Exhibitions – Stories from the Attic: A Handful of Geneseo Histories / Preservation Project Exhibit: Portrait of Eliza Tooke Martin and Portrait of a Lady @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo
Feb 27 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Exhibit Dates: January 29 – March 11, 2020

Stories from the Attic: A Handful of Geneseo Histories

Stories from the Attic explores aspects of Geneseo and Livingston County that might not be evident to students of the university. Spanning as far back as the Treaty of Big Tree, students will be able to see and touch an actual part of the ancient oak–while also being able to learn about slightly more recent things, such as the largest manufacturer of croquet sets in the United States and the Geneseo Normal School. Stories from the Attic will also explore Geneseo salt mines–one of the most important in the US–and the little known existence of German Prisoner of War camps that existed during World War II.

Exhibition – Recent Collages: Go Back and Fetch It @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Feb 27 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

In Luvon Sheppard’s new work he continues to use the visual elements that have always played a significant role in his arduous pursuit to understand and experience visual relationships as applied to his studio method, processes, and materials. It involves both juxtapositions and reflections that relate to ideas, shapes, color, places, characters, and its narrative actions and poetics. This work process aides in the development of comparisons and contrasts to provoke an unexpected mix of historic and contemporary elements.

“The collage for me is a natural bridge for integration of history, culture, time chance and is a natural synthesis for my work in watercolor. The transparency of watercolor mixed with the mirrored paper, printed negatives and positives, and photo mixed media allows me the freedom of juxtaposition, mirroring and expression, and the freedom to work with form in a traditional manner or blend watercolor and found material. Sheppard’s major concern and studio practice involve the study of artists such as Joseph Turner, John Singer Sargent, and Winslow Homer, plus bi-weekly Plein-air painting. Special consideration is painting reflective elements, objects, and the water’s reflection on lake and ponds.

Luvon Sheppard is a professor of art at Rochester Institute of Technology and formerly taught watercolor painting in SUNY Geneseo’s art department. He has mentored hundreds of students and exhibits his paintings throughout New York. He and his partner Frances own the Joy Gallery in Rochester. We are pleased to present his latest work to the Geneseo community.

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.
