September Gallery Night @ Grayhaven Motel

Join us for the next installment of Gallery Night at Grayhaven! Friday, September 2nd from 4-7pm in our gallery guest lounge, join us in welcoming Eva Capobianco‘s show, Exploring the Trail…

The inspiration for this series began during the Finger Lakes Trail spring weekend of 2019. I spent three days with friends hiking the western end of the Trail in Allegheny State Park. After a very rainy spring, we were trekking through a lot of mud and across streams of various sizes. At one point we crossed a wooden bridge spanning about 30 feet. The stream crossings can be anything from a couple of planks to substantial wood structures. Using my i-phone, I snapped some photos of this bridge and continued hiking. As I walked, I started imagining a wall sculpture in my mind. I would use a photo of this bridge alongside a couple of wood boards to represent a simple crossing. As I pictured the piece in my mind, the idea grew into a whole series. I would find inspiration from the photos and make at least one piece for each of the 34 maps on the trail. The works are designed partly on paper and partly by arranging and re-arranging the found objects with the photos. Once a design is set, the works are carefully and lovingly assembled, sanded, and polished to bring them to life.

Exploring the Trail will be up through June 2022, viewable daily between 3-7pm.
