West Kortright Center Welcomes First Gallery Exhibit of Season

Written By Editor on 5/17/17 | 5/17/17

(EAST MEREDITH) The West Kortright Centre is pleased to present its first gallery exhibit of the 2017 season—a group painting and collage show featuring work by Christine Alexander, Lanny Harrison, and Lenny Failla. There will be an opening reception on Friday, May 26th from 5-7PM. This event is free and open to the public, with food and drink generously provided by caterer Rod Sauquillo and Brewery Ommegang. The exhibit runs through July 7th, viewable during West Kortright Centre events or by appointment.
Christine Alexander’s life-long fascination with color is reflected in her work. This East Meredith-based artist paints in watercolor and acrylic and makes intricate cut-paper collages. Often whimsical, her paintings are characteristically brightly hued. She teaches art and collage workshops and has shown her art in many solo and group exhibitions.

Lanny Harrison–performer, visual artist, teacher, poet–has been making collages, paintings, cutouts, and costumes for most of her life. Harrison is a founding teacher of The West Kortright Centre’s theater workshops, including Introduction to Acting & East Meets West. She also teaches at NYU’s Gallatin School & at Shambhala Meditation Center of NY and is currently working on a mixed-media theater show, ‘Another Nomadic Event’, in collaboration with Steve Clorfeine, Robin Daniels, Christine Alicino, and Wendell Beavers.

Lenny Failla has been actively painting houses for over twenty years, often using cardboard to cover floors and work areas. Failla, a former art teacher, uses the stained and dripped-upon cardboard as a stage for artistic play, adding deliberate strokes, splashes, and found objects.

The West Kortright Centre is located midway between Oneonta, Delhi, and Stamford. Follow signs from state Route 23 in Davenport Center or state Route 10 east of Delhi. For exact travel directions, visit www.westkc.org.
