Excited about a couple things I have in the works for upcoming months!  I can’t announce them quite yet, but keep your fingers crossed for me.  In the meantime, this is what I have going on for August.

The Covid-19 Response Show (July 6 - September 3)

Corona Self-Portraits by Laura Jaen Smith. Four gouache self-portrait paintings.

The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lake
79 W Market Street, Corning, NY

Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 9am-5pm

On view: 
“Corona Self-Portraits” 


The ARTS Council says this about the show: “The COVID-19 Response Show, part of a larger undertaking by The ARTS Council, seeks artists of all mediums to draw inspiration upon their experiences during this pandemic. Work is meant to not only reflect life during this pandemic, but to also document this time and offer a creative response to a world turned upside down. Artists have always been part of a community’s disaster healing and recovery, offering hope and serving as front line responders in helping make our communities thrive again. As we continue to endure through this pandemic, this show will position regional artists to do just that.”

The exhibit is on display July 6th through September 3rd.  Make sure to check the ARTS Council website/facebook page for any updates to protocols.
