Fall Along the Canal: Press Release
Fall Along the Canal
Rockhill Bakehouse Cafe,
19 Exchange Street, Glens Falls, NY
October 9 - November 5, 2011
Reception: October 20, 2011, 5-7 p.m.
Rockhill Bakehouse Cafe in downtown, Glens Falls, NY will present an exhibition of photographs, large format altered digital prints, and polymer clay jewelry by Queensbury artist Sara Pearsall entitled, Fall Along the Canal. The exhibition will open on October 9 and continue through November 5, 2011. A reception will be held at the cafe as part of the Third Thursday Art Walk on October 20, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Fall Along the Canal will feature ten photographs, four large format altered digital prints and six polymer clay jewelry sets inspired by the Feeder Canal trail from the Feeder Dam to Haviland’s Cove. All of the artwork incorporates the autumn colors, textures and beauty seen along the path. The photographs and large format altered digital prints are a variety of landscape and macro images. Each of the polymer clay jewelry sets is designed using different polymer clay beads that intrepret the textures and colors of the waterway. This section of the canal has played an important role in the artist’s daily life and this exhibit captures the autumn beauty along the water. A portion of the sales from the exhibit will be donated to the Feeder Canal Alliance, a local not-for-profit that preserves, promotes and maintains the canal.
Sara Pearsall works with three distinct artistic pursuits; photography, printing inks & polymer clay. The photographs & prints are vibrant images of the Adirondacks & the outdoors. The jewelry features handmade polymer clay beads incorporating the colors & textures found in nature. Sara has been working with photography and digital imagery for over 14 years and has balanced her studio work with polymer clay jewelry since 2002. The prints and polymer clay designs are often linked, sometimes the connections between the mediums are as obvious as an image transfer or as simple as a color. Sara has had numerous group and solo shows in the greater Glens Falls region and recently had an altered digital photograph included in a national juried exhibit in Blue Mountain Lake, NY.
