Members of the public are invited to attend a free Open Studio Reception on Wednesday, June 17 from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Sculpture Space studio, 12 Gates Street, Utica. The reception provides an opportunity for local residents and supporters of the organization to meet current artists-in-residence, view their artwork in progress and learn more about their creative process.
The reception sponsor is Adirondack Financial Services, 185 Genesee Street, and the restaurant sponsor is Zeina’s Café, 607 Varick Street, in Utica.
The reception will feature current artists in residence Rosemarie Fiore (Bronx, NY) and Sara Dittrich (Baltimore, MD). Rosemarie Fiore is an interdisciplinary artist and typically produces artwork out of the actions of mechanisms. She converts popular technology such as lawn mowers, cars, waffle irons, floor polishers, pinball machines, fireworks and amusement park rides into painting machines. Sara Dittrich is also an interdisciplinary artist and creates objects, installations, and performances using the forms of musical instruments and interactive electronic technologies to investigate the acts of listening, communicating and moving.
