Urbia 2, featuring oil paintings and monotypes by Saltonstall residency alumna Lisbeth Firmin ’04, opens Friday, November 3 with a reception for the artist from 5:30 – 7:30pm during Gallery Night Ithaca.
From gallery director and curator Julie Simmons-Lynch: “Elena Soterakis and Gary Sczerbaniewicz’s work of boarded-up buildings and children playing knee-deep in rubbish exposes the over-gentrification and displacement of our communities and is a stark proclamation of a world gone mad. Lisbeth Firmin’s thought-provoking paintings of the people living in these communities is a perfect complement to that message.””
eye Gallery is located at 126 E. State Street, 2nd Fl, directly above Petrune on The Commons in downtown Ithaca. Look for the sandwich board and the red door, and head upstairs!
Regular gallery hours are Thursday/Friday 4:00 – 6:00pm, Saturday/Sunday 12:00 – 5:00pm.
