First Friday Line up for August

Cooperative Gallery 213 | 213 State Street
“Growth Patterns” “Familiar Spaces”
Diana Whitehead, Karen Fedczuk
On view: 08/05/22 – 08/27/22

Diana Whiteman, who is showing at the Cooperative Gallery for the first time, will show paintings in acrylic. She says, “I am attracted by the patterns in the natural world as well as inside the body. I explore the dynamics of growth in plant and animal life as well as personal or metaphysical growth. She continues, “I tend to look at things closely, which lends itself to both discomfort and fascination. Being removed from the natural world, there is a kind of peace in depicting plant life, whereas images of the body or animal life may cause a more visceral, sometimes uncomfortable reaction. At the same time, the plants I choose to depict have a personal if amorphous significance to me, which grows as I spend more time with them.”

Karen Fedczuk explores new territory in each of her exhibits at the Cooperative Gallery. She explains, “Familiar Spaces is a new body of work which explores reimagined places using a mixed media technique. As the images evolve through trial and error, they become familiar spaces that I have known.”

Bob Alan Bricks | Rick Iacovelli
On view: 08/05/2022 – 08/30/2022

Art of Broken Things by Bob Alan Bricks: “…I shall create and I shall destroy. I shall purge and I shall replenish. I will make love to my Muse on paper every night and I have killed many times on canvas. My visual experiments are often sprinkled with the “”thrown away””, the useless, grotesque, out of place, and “”discarded”” playing key roles in a brand new narrative where their value is wide open to the viewer’s own interpretations. ”

Tea & Cinema by Rick Iacovelli: A unique experience of watercolor & ink paintings on tea bags; plus a collection of mixed media cinematic images. Also included in this show are various eclectic images of geisha woman, musicians, musical instruments and more.

Binghamton Photo | 32 Cedar Street (Bundy Campus)
Beauties & Bedlam
Nox Images (Iris French & Mike Seman)
On view: 07/01/2022 – 08/30/2022

*Not suitable for those under 18 years of age. About the artist: “Nox Images creates fantastical worlds with a fetish flair utilizing digital photography. Through the incorporation of pagan undertones, grimly abandoned buildings dotting the coast, and borderline cinematic characterizations, Nox Images specializes in a sensual darkness that embraces oddity and celebrates the female form.

The exhibition has no cohesive theme but explores the elements that make up what Nox Images is known for – fetish, fantasy & horror. Each image reads less like a stagnant piece and more like a still from a literary scene, as if you happened upon the creature mid-story. Beyond being cinematic, Nox focuses on embracing raw sexuality in a way that’s celebratory of the female form. Whether doused in glitter or blood, Nox Images is sexuality seen through the female gaze. At its heart, it’s both erotica and camp that’s meant to be a worship of women in their most fantastical or fearsome forms.”
