OLD FORGE – A retired SUNY Geneseo trainer was lately honored for one in all his displays on the New York State Sworn Sculpture Exhibition on the View Heart for Arts and Tradition in Outdated Forge, Herkimer County.
Carl Shanahan, a resident of Hemlock and a former artwork professor on the college, took third place within the exhibition of “Rolling Hills,” one in all two ceramic sculptures he offered.
Shanahan displayed an earlier model of the sculpture at a 2018 exhibit on the Wyoming County Council on the Arts. The piece, then referred to as “Panorama,” integrated uniquely formed sticks that Shanahan had gathered over years of mountain climbing with associates within the Adirondacks.

Talking forward of the 2018 exhibit, Shanahan stated her items are largely impressed by cairns, or rock piles, that are scattered all through the Adirondack area.
“The ceramic items are, for essentially the most half, slab building with an emphasis on a variety of texture,” Shanahan stated. “In them I attempt to create a type of panorama. They’re cooked with salt till they’re glazed and in some I’ve tried to include the roots ”.
Stephen Saracino of Buffalo ranked first within the juried show of “Vestige Vessel -7 and Brian Menia of Morrisonville, Clinton County, ranked second for” Frank. “
Honorable Mentions had been awarded to Marc-Anthony Polizzi of Utica, Oneida County, for “Socially Distant”; Invoice Hastings of Ithaca, Tompkin County, for “Sway”; Catherine Spencer of Syracuse, Onondaga County, for “Self Sabotage”; Nancy Azara of New York Metropolis for “Crimson Stand-In”; and Saracino for “Melancholia”.
The exhibit shall be on show till March 21. To view different artworks and study extra concerning the exhibit and the View Heart, click on right here.
