News-Antique.com - Aug 03,2011 - The Gallery at FOUND is pleased to welcome a new show by Ithaca area artist MARY REYNOLDS. The show opens on Wednesday, August 17th, with an artist’s reception on Thursday, August 18th from 5-7 pm. We invite you to meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments and tasty treats. The show will be on display in the Gallery through September 11th.
Ms. Reynold’s work is fashioned from humble cast off objects which are re-imagined and embellished with architectural fragments, metal, buttons, paper, natural elements and quirky found objects. Materials are chosen for their simple and uncomplicated qualities and they seem to find their way into most everything she creates. Cast off drawers, boxes and random objects are transformed from an old life to a new purpose and in their new form they become cabinets, shelves and decorative sculptures.
Ms. Reynold’s work has been exhibited in Ithaca at the annual Artist’s Market, Belle Melange, Spirit and Kitsch Gallery and Smart Monkey Café. In addition her work has been shown at the Clothesline Festival sponsored by the Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, NY, the Ellipse Gallery, Arlington, VA and the Art Mission, Binghamton, NY.
The Gallery at FOUND is an intimate art space located within FOUND in Ithaca, the area’s newest antique and vintage marketplace. The gallery showcases works of local artists who utilize found imagery, found objects or employ an up-cycling philosophy in their work. FOUND will remain open during the artist’s reception. Come browse through 7,000 square feet of great finds!
FOUND is located along the inlet behind Wegmans at 227 Cherry Street. Open every day except Tuesday, 10-6. For more information call 607-319-5078 or visit our website at http://foundinithaca.com/events/mary-reynolds/
