Jeremy Randall Exhibition Opens June 1 at Imagine

Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, will host an opening reception 6 to 9 p.m. June 1 for “Form and Landscape: New Work by Jeremy Randall.” The event is part of Skaneateles’ First Friday celebration. Entertainment will be provided by the Usual Suspects, an old-time string band.

The exhibition, on view through June 30, marks the first time that Randall’s architectural ceramic vessels will be paired with his landscape drawings.

“Landscape has become increasingly important to me, both in my work and in my life,” says Randall, of Tully. “From the rural architectural forms that populate the landscape I call home, to the land that we live on and are sustained by, I am realizing more and more that we need to be rooted in the land.”

Randall’s work was recently selected for inclusion in a November show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He also has exhibited this year at Craftboston Spring, Baltimore Clayworks, the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, Mass., and Studio 550 in Nashua, N.H.

Altogether, his works have been shown in more than 60 exhibitions nationwide; images have appeared in Ceramic Arts Daily, Clay Times, Ceramic Review, Stone Canoe, and “500 Vases” and “500 Cups” (Lark Books).

Randall uses color to elevate forms to be celebrated, while conjuring the nostalgia for something old that is still recognized today. His drawings combine graphite and acrylic paint on panel. The colors relate to his ceramic work, and lend a soft energy to the landscape being referenced.

“Familiarity evokes memory, and I look to this association to present nostalgia through form,” Randall says. “My reference to rural American architecture and antique rural implements places the viewer in a familiar setting that is layered with time, function and history, while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. Vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching one’s living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and the reminder of a simpler time.”

Randall, recognized by Ceramics Monthly as an Emerging Artist for 2009, is digital imaging/web specialist and head of installations at Imagine, studio manager and visiting professor of art at Cazenovia College, and adjunct professor of ceramics at Syracuse University, his alma mater.

His work is held in the permanent collection of the Southern Illinois University Museum and the private Meyerhoff Collection in Baltimore. In addition to Imagine and Gandee Gallery locally, he is represented by galleries in Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Massachusetts.

Imagine is located in the lakeside village of Skaneateles, nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. It represents artists from across the country and Canada, along with many Central New York artists, to create one of the most diverse contemporary art collections in the area.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

For more information, call 315-685-6263 or go to http://www.imagineskaneateles.comor http://www.facebook.com/imagineskaneateles. Randall’s works can be seen at http://jeremyrandallceramics.com/.

The hiking trails and parking are free and open every day from dawn to dusk.

June Events
5     Star Party: Venus Transit
5:30-7:30pm
A Star Party during the day? That’s right! Venus will be moving across the sun, and you can watch! These “transits” are extremely rare. The last one was in 2004, and the one before that, in 1882 was used to calculate the distance of the Earth from the Sun and, subsequently, the size of our solar system! The next won’t occur until 2117. You’ll want to catch this one! $5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

12   That’s Ferntastic!
10:30am
Tom loves ferns… a lot. Join him on this easy walk to discover the ferns growing in Baltimore Woods, and to see why their elegant fiddleheads and beautiful fronds have not only survived for millennia, but have also fascinated people for generations. $5 for members, $8 for nonmembers.

16, 23, and 30 Frog Catching Party
1-3pm
Frogs! Where? Down at Phillips Pond of course! Join our Naturalists for a celebration of all things frogs as we engage in this classic childhood activity. Space is limited to 30 people— register early. $5 for members; $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

20   Solstice Stroll
7:30-9pm
Join one of our Naturalists for a pleasant hike through the evening woods, celebrating the longest day of the year. Experience the sights and sounds of the forest as animals prepare for the night. We’ll stroll past the beaver pond in hopes of seeing these elusive creatures in action. We won’t stay out ‘til the cows come home, but perhaps ‘til the fireflies come out! $5 for members; $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

29   Nature’s Little Explorers Frog Frenzy (for preschool age children)
10-11:30am
Join us for every child’s favorite nature activity – catching frogs! We will supply the nets and you supply the child. Wear clothes and shoes that will get MUDDY! Children must be accompanied by an adult. Meet at the lower parking lot. $5/child (member); $8/child (nonmember); adults free.

29   Home School Expeditions Stream  Stomp
1-2:30pm
Get into exploring a stream – literally! Students will wade in our stream searching for invertebrates and other animals to help us determine Baltimore Brook’s water quality. Wear sturdy water shoes and shorts, and get ready to get wet! Meet at the lower parking lot. $5/child (member); $8/child (nonmember); adults free.
