Interpreting Nature

March 5th through April 30th
Reception: Sunday, March 25th, 2–4pm


Sharon Bottle Souva, Wesley Weiss, and Jill Newton exhibit artwork

On exhibit March 5th through April 30th, 2012 in the Weeks Art Gallery, 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus, NY  Baltimore Woods Nature Center is pleased to present Interpreting Nature, an exhibit and sale of artworks. Working in three distinct media and united by their shared reference to the natural world, this collection of work by Sharon Bottle Souva, fabric handworks; Wesley Weiss, ceramics; and Jill Newton, watercolors. is open to the public during regular business hours: M-F 9am-4pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. There is no admission charge to the gallery, and parking is free.
A reception for the artists will be held On Sunday, March 25th, 2-4pm. It is open to the public.

Sharon Bottle Souva uses the medium of fabric to express her artistic vision, calling her artwork fabric handworks. Speaking of her work, Souva says: “The tradition of quilt making continues to be on the forefront of my work as I explore this medium into nontraditional creations.” Nature exerts a direct influence in Souva’s work and the artist translates direct experience of nature into her chosen medium. “Inspiration comes from the natural world; much from the landscape of my childhood farm in the Southern Tier….I find myself looking at nature with the questions: How could that be interpreted in fabric? How can I incorporate those elements of texture and design into my work?”  Souva continues, “The needle is an extension of my fingers, the threads and fabric my palette.”
More information on Souva’s work can be found on her website: sharonbottlesouva.com.

Wesley Weiss is an artist whose chosen medium is clay. Says Weiss: “I have always been compelled to work with my hands. My thoughts center in and translate to three dimensions and my motivation is to process these forms into sculptural ceramics.” Weiss’ ceramics are often directly informed by the natural world — references to nature are more than decoration on the vessels, they are integrated parts of and integral to the form. “The images of my life show up in both literal and figurative ways on the surfaces of my work,” explains Weiss. He continues: “I derive great satisfaction from solving problems and discovering ways to connect the conception to reality….. the major drive is to create organic forms which speak to the viewer.” More of Weiss’ work can be seen in the gallery at Clayscapes Pottery, Syracuse, NY, where he is currently working on carved tree forms and large organic shapes.

Jill Newton’s florals are rendered in the traditional media of watercolor. Her connection to nature is clear and her motivation, direct: “Influenced by nature, I try to capture its beauty in my painting.” Speaking of her method, Newton says:  “I work primarily in transparent watercolors. Its character allows for multi layering, spontaneity, and an occasional surprise.” Newton offers this insight into her approach to the paint: “Trying to gain control of the medium and then trying to lose control has kept me both challenged and intrigued.” she says. “Painting flowers just makes me happy,” she continues, and joy is evident in Newton’s work. A Master Gardener, Newton often paints subjects from her own garden, and she is inspired by the endless shapes and forms found there. Newton works from her studio in Skaneateles, NY.
