Steel-town: James Pernotto features artwork by James Pernotto which documents the collapse of the industrial revolution in Youngstown, Ohio. The Dance of Abstraction: Patty Flauto features distinguished alumna, Patty Flauto, whose work puts forth suggestion, implication and mystery rather than obvious “real” pictures. Her work provokes thought about paintings that are visible yet incomprehensible. MFA Thesis Exhibition: Kerrianne Ghinda and Katherine Williamson This exhibition features the visual art research of Kerrianne Ghinda, Poland, OH and Katherine Williamson, Elmira, NY, candidates from the Master of Fine arts degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts. Williamson’s work, Remnants, explores the symbolism of a forsaken home and the emotions it awakens through the use of deconstructed, disregarded building materials and household items, lack of color as well as fragments of a domestic life. Ghinda’s work, Remains, draws attention to the enormous volume of plastic garbage and one-use plastics that we use daily, without thinking or malice, polluting our oceans, rivers, streams, and waterways. HopeCAT Youth Arts Exhibition The Hope Center of Arts & Technology exhibition features work by participants in each of the HopeCAT studios from Spring, 2022. Work includes painting/drawing studio, printmaking, and ceramics. HopeCAT is a non-profit organization that provides free after-school arts classes for students in grades 7-12 from the surrounding region with the goal of increasing positive mentorship and leading students to pathways that create productive citizens in our communities.
