April 1st – 30th

P. Tribastone Fine Art Gallery
32 South Main Street
Canandaigua, NY

Gallery hours: Tues. – Sat. from 10am-6pm

Nancy Murty is an artist friend I met a couple of years ago, at The Hungerford, where we both rent space. (For an extra special treat, take a tour of her studio here.) She has a lot of spectacular talents and makes everything look easy. I think that’s largely due to her sweet personality, very easy going. Make no mistake, Nancy works very hard and puts considerable time into her projects. Nancy and her awesome graphic design skills are responsible for our Hungerford website. Once you’re in the building, you’ll see more of her work in our fabulous wall directories located on each floor. She’s designed brochures for us, holiday promotions and ads.

I’m also proud to carry her greeting cards & magnets at Fairport Pharmacy & Gift Shop. My mom recently bought several of her bird prints for her living room. I don’t know anyone who isn’t a Nancy Murty fan!

Artists at Work on 1st Saturdays

Artist at work schedule 2015-2016

Flower City | Flour City

Flower Flour Installation
This is an opening celebration of the new studio space in the Anderson Arts Building (#214). There will be an installation of fabricated objects and screen prints created by me, Bill Klingensmith – MYDARNDEST.

The concept of this work is how the City of Rochester refers to itself as
the “flau̇(-ə)r” city. Opening the interpretation up to the receiver. No one is wrong with their answer: Flower or Flour. The divide to which one or the other as better/correct still falsely resonates today. The fact is our city actually has a strong history in both, creating ONE city.

Come by to see the work, grab a snack and meet up with other outstanding Rochesterians.

Hope to see you there!

On the Irondequoit Art Trail Again


Lisa Zaccour is an Irondequoit artist who had a dream… to create a way to spotlight Irondequoit artists and showcase her town as an art destination.

When she set out on her voyage to do this, she met then-curator of the Irondequoit I-Gallery, Zanne Brunner. Along with six other artists and their
creative minds, The Irondequoit Art Trail was born, in 2012.

Robin Salsbury 115 Mayfair Drive Rochester, NY 14617 Bird carvings and watercolor & acrylic paintings.

Since then, the annual event has featured up to 25 artists showing and selling their work. This year The Trail will be held on Friday, July 24th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm and on Saturday, July 25th from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Brochures that include the Trail map will be available at both branches of the Irondequoit library, the Irondequoit Town Hall, and at The Artists Cave,
a new art gallery and exhibit space located at 4639 Culver Road, right across from Seabreeze.

The owner of The Artists Cave, John Lenhard, one of the founding members of the Irondequoit Art Trail, is hosting an Opening Reception for participating artists on July 17th from 7pm to 9pm. We invite you to stop by, see samples of the artists’ work and then make your plans to join us on The Trail! Watch for the Art Trail signs as you travel The Trail and have fun!

For more information, call (315) 331-4593, email us at or check out our website.

Jackie Bailey: Enameling has been a passion since living in Cleveland, Ohio, a center for the art of enameling. Jackie majored in art at Rochester Institute of Technology and has exhibited widely. He also displayed work on the internet and was employed as a decorator consultant for many years. Jackie also had a painting done in acrylics published in a book.

Leslie Bowers: Leslie lives with her family in Phelps, NY. After retiring from the Rochester School for the Deaf in 2003, she pursued her desire to design, hand craft and sell jewelry. Although she had become a silver smith years before, she decided to include some kind of art in her designs. Having become fascinated with enamels she had seen in Williamstown, MA, Leslie decided to learn this technique. She took classes in enameling at the Memorial Art Gallery, studying with Yvonne Cupolo. After learning what she could do, Leslie produced a number of enamels, which she sold at area shows such as the Clothesline and Arts in the Gardens at Sonnenberg. In addition to jewelry making, she is also working on her painting skills and has
show in several area galleries.

Len (Lenaria) Brondum: Len is best known for her vibrant silk canvases which have been published in various books and magazines. After achieving Master Silk Painter status , she resumed her interest in enameling. Her enamels were displayed in Newark, New Jersey museum as well as the Glass on Metal Conference in Cape Cod. She was featured on the Grains of Glass website for a month and will be featured in the Glass on Metal magazine this summer.

Yvonne Cupolo: Yvonne has been creating cloisonné and sterling silver jewelry for 35 years. With a BFA degree from Rochester Institute of Technology and MFA from SUNY Brockport, she has taught metalsmithing and enameling at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester NY and The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY. Her work is colorful and whimsical, a kind of magic realism, celebrating natural subjects. The cloisonné jewelry in this exhibit features images of cats, flowers, and designs set in sterling silver and accented with gemstones. Yvonne Cupolo’s jewelry has been published and exhibited nationally, and is in the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass, and The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog.

Antoinette M. McClure and Dan McClure: Both Antoinette and Dan retired from teaching after sixty collective years in public schools. During her teaching tenure Antoinette owned and operated a small jewelry store with her husband and artistic collaborator, Dan McClure. Dan introduced enameling to Antoinette and they both started to cast jewelry using the lost wax method. As the years have progressed they have combined their work as artists and are now with the ARTISANworks in Rochester, NY. All their work combines three elements: wood, glass and metal. In 2009, Rainmaker Designs (name of their business) received the ‘hottest new product’ award from The Rochester Home and Garden Show in Rochester, NY.

Lacey Cloisonne
Patricia Zachman: Although Patricia has had a life long love of enamel art, especially cloisonné, she has been working in the medium for only a couple of years. Her latest cloisonné pieces reflect her study of calligraphy and Celtic and Medieval manuscripts. Patty currently lives and works in Webster, NY with her husband, Tom (who works in fused and stained glass), and their Australian Shepherd, Lacey. She feels fortunate to be learning the art of cloisonné from enamelist Yvonne Cupolo.
