The five resident artists of suite 240 welcome guest artist Brenda Cretney as their guest artist on First Friday and Second Saturday in February. Brenda is an award-winning watercolor artist, whose subject matter often reflects her love of animals. Brenda has two other connections to The Hungerford – she’s a member of Rochester Art Club and she is Lori Prince’s mother-in-law! Brenda resides in Brockport and some of her smaller paintings will be for sale in suite 240 ongoing.

Nancy Murty: A Matter of Beauty

Goldfinch
THE 1570 GALLERY
Located in Valley Manor
1570 East Avenue
Rochester NY 14610
April 20th – June 6th from 9am-5pm

I have a new painting hanging in the ‘A Matter of Beauty’ show and I’d like to invite you to the Opening Reception on Friday, April 24th from 6-8pm. If you can’t make it to the reception, the gallery will be open from 9am-5pm daily from April 20th through June 6th. ~ Nancy Murty ~

Nancy Murty is a friend and a Hungerford neighbor. I’ve been a fan of her artwork since I became familiar with The Hungerford and now I’m a huge fan of her as a person! She is super nice, very funny and is always willing to share what she knows. I have a feeling that any time she sees something that needs doing she thinks, “How hard can that be?” Her beautifully tranquil studio is the envy of every artist in the building. She’s an amazing graphic artist who took on the rebranding of The Hungerford, a job for which we now pay her, thank goodness.

2014 Holiday at The Hungerford
Most of us credit Nancy’s beautiful design of the Holidays at The Hungerford “ornament” with increased sales this past holiday season.

She recently joined the bird banding team as their Scribe, at Braddock Bay Bird Observatory. You can read about her first day on her blog. She says she’s enjoying it because it’s something she’s doing just for her. I can’t wait to see what sort of incredible paintings come of all that hands-on experience!

The original painting above has already sold, but you can buy prints in her Etsy shop. We also carry her magnets & prints at Fairport Pharmacy & Gift Shop.

Getting to know Nancy has been one of the highlights of my time at The Hungerford.

Hungerford 318 Launches Holiday Ornaments on First Friday, October 3

2014 Hungerford 318 Ornaments

First they were artists, then they became friends.

We met online a few years ago through Rochester Artisans, a community of artists founded by Stefani Tadio in 2009. Over time we ran into each other at local craft shows – and it didn’t take long for us to become good friends,” says glass artist Tom Zachman.

Jean Keane, JK Stitches, Shortsville, NY, uses whimsical and elegant fabrics to create useful accessories for pets and their humans.

Lori Prince, L Prince Designs Art Jewelry, Rochester, NY, creates artisan jewelry using copper, sterling silver, polymer clay and resin.

Stefani Tadio, Pine Tree Designs, Fairport, NY, designs symmetrical patterns on a computer, then stitches them by hand on paper, to make framed art, greeting cards and notepads.

Mary Terziani, Mary Terziani Glass, Rochester, NY, kiln fires colorful glass into bowls, plates and coasters in a very painterly style.

Tom Zachman, Tom Zachman Glass, Webster, NY, uses both recycled and new glass to make his one of a kind wind chimes and ornaments, often combined with steel elements.

“Over dinner, we’d talk about having a retail space to use for selling our art, to supplement our art fair income,” adds Lori Prince. “And we knew The Hungerford is where we wanted to be. It’s a four-story former syrup factory turned into artist studios and shops primarily, along with other businesses as well.”

H318 Banner

The five artists opened Hungerford 318 in June 2014. The group has joined HUA (Hungerford Urban Artists) to promote all that goes on in the building. And HUA is a member of both NOTABA (Neighborhood of the Arts Business Association) and The Market District. While all five artists live in the suburbs of Rochester, they are strong supporters of the local art scene everywhere.

“We’re all proud of each other’s work so it’s easy to talk with customers. It’s nice having five people to split the rent and provide coverage during events if some of us are busy with shows on weekends,” says Jean Keane.

Mary Terziani chimes in, “And working with friends is such a nice bonus!”

For October’s First Friday, on October 3 (6-9pm), the artists are launching their 2014 collection of ornaments, perfect for the holidays but beautiful for year-round display too.

The historic Hungerford building is located at 1115 East Main Street in downtown Rochester, near the Public Market. The artists are active participants in the highly popular First Friday (6-9pm) and Second Saturday (10am-3pm) events at The Hungerford, and their shop is also open by appointment.

FirePaint Studio, Saturday Guest Artist at Hungerford 318

Patty Zachman Collage

Each piece I make has many layers of enamel and color. I start with a piece of copper which I hand saw, drill, file, sand and thoroughly scrub clean of all dirt and oil.

Then I sift a layer of powdered enamel onto copper, fire it in a kiln at 1200-1500 degrees F. I let it cool and scrub it again. This process is repeated over and over for every layer of enamel. Some pieces go through 7 firings. Both sides of the copper are enameled to give the piece stability and allow the wearer to show either side.

I’m so happy to be invited to be a guest artist this Second Saturday at The Hungerford! I’ll be selling my enameled copper jewelry at Hungerford 318, a colorful little shop owned by my husband and 4 other artists. I hope you’ll stop by! ~ Patty Zachman ~
