Art Glass Exhibition Opens at Imagine  

 

 “Soul Cages: An Exploration of Change, Time and Process,” featuring the work of R. Jason Howard, will be on view throughout July at Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles.   The exhibition, which showcases Howard’s flame-worked glass sculptures, ornaments and functional pieces, opens 6 to 9 p.m. July 6, as part of the village’s First Friday celebration. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Usual Suspects.   “This series is about inner life forces,” says Howard, of Skaneateles, a progressive glass artist who specializes in borosilicate flameworking. “The simple bubble is the genesis of all blown forms, perhaps even the soul of glass. I prefer blown glass forms because they capture a unique part of the handmade artistic process—the human breath.   “In these works, I’ve tried to ‘let go,’ allowing the bubbles to expand as large as they can without exerting too much control over their shape,” he says. “Piercing the bubbles with a flame leaves only their pure essence: These captured forms are reduced to their absolute basic structure or inner life force. They are not stitched or woven, but rather blown, manipulated, and finally revealed. Layers of fumed gold and silver amplify their ability to capture, hold and reflect light’s divine mystic qualities.”   Howard, owner of Cicada Glassworks, began working with glass in 1997 as a senior at Hamilton College, under the tutelage of Robert Palusky. After a two-year internship as Hamilton’s ceramic studio technician and a scholarship to the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, he began studying both off-hand glassblowing and flameworking with such renowned artists as Cesare Toffolo, Emilio Santini, William Gudenrath, Robert Mickelsen, James Nowak, Suellen Fowler and Loren Stump. Howard’s work is in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and has been shown at Snyderman-Works Galleries in Philadelphia, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, Kittrell/Riffkind Art Glass in Dallas and the Glasshouse Gallery in Seattle. 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.   The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.   For more information, call (315) 685-6263 or go to www.imagineskaneateles.com or www.facebook.com/imagineskaneateles.

COLLEGE COST WORKSHOP: 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Skaneateles Library, 49

E. Genesee St. – John Decker from

College Assistance Plus, will discuss how to negotiate

better deals at private colleges and grad schools, regardless of family income. Whether you are

a parent of student in middle school, high school, or already in college, you’ll learn strategies to

find a viable major and career, then progressively reduce the cost of college throughout

undergrad, grad programs, med school, and law school. Six figure student debt is common and

53% of 2010 college grads are unemployed or in non-degree jobs. Starting early in identifying

careers and majors can mitigate this, plus will help avoid changing majors 4 times and staying in

college an average of 5.5 years! The fresh approach that

College Assistance Plus (CAPlus)

developed was covered in full page article in the New York Times. CAPlus will email this article

in advance plus other practical information upon request. NCAA sports strategies will also be

Patchwork Plus Celebrates 25th Anniversary With Sales and Specials When Patchwork Plus Quilt Shop opened its doors on July 1, 1987, it offered just 250 bolts of fabric. Today, it is one of the largest full-service fabric and yarn shops in the Northeast—offering 9,000 bolts of fabric, Bernina sewing machines, and instruction in a wide variety of quilting and knitting techniques.     To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Patchwork Plus, 2532 Cherry Valley Turnpike (Rt. 20), Marcellus, will offer a number of specials throughout July, including:   • Its annual tent sale, starting at 7 a.m. July 7, with more than 1,000 bolts of pre-measured fabric for sale at $2.50 per yard. Also on sale will be $25 grab bags containing 25 fat quarters, which usually sell for $3 apiece. Starting at 8 a.m., everything in the store will be marked down by 25 percent, except sewing machines and special orders. Birthday cake and coffee will be available starting at 6:30 a.m.   Shop owner Judi West advises serious shoppers to get there by 6:30 a.m. “When I arrive at 5:30 a.m. to begin loading, cars are already lined up and people are sitting on lawn chairs with their thermoses of coffee, waiting for the sale to start,” she says. “By 7:30 a.m., there’s a limited selection.”   • Daily anniversary specials, with different items on sale each day. Information on each day’s special will be posted on the shop’s Facebook page. • A Bag Lady sale July 25, when shoppers bringing their Patchwork Plus bags will receive 25 percent off a select item.   Patchwork Plus came to life in a room of the Byrne Dairy Building at 38 Jordan St., Skaneateles, expanding to five rooms before moving to its current 5,000-square-foot facility in Marcellus in 2006. West started the shop with a friend, she says, because the two were unable to find the high-quality 100 percent cotton fabrics they wanted for their own projects.   “When we opened, quilters were interested in reproducing antique quilts, and the country look was popular,” she says. “In the nineties, artists began using fabric as their medium, and the craft grew to encompass incredible fabrics and amazing techniques. As a result, customers came to expect a wider variety of fabrics, machines and instruction. Today, we offer a full line to meet the needs of every quilter.”   In Spring 2009, Patchwork Plus was a featured shop in Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler. “With its impressive size and inventory, this rural New York quilt shop is cutting edge,” they wrote. Annette Mott, of Baldwinsville, has been a customer from the start. “I’ve been shopping here forever because they always have the best fabrics and the most helpful staff,” she says.   Patchwork Plus is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call (315) 673-2208 or go to www.patchworkplus.com.
