Duet by Dominique Mediak-Pirigyi—Slip cast ceramic, underglaze transfers

Hi! I’m Dominique Mediak-Pirigyi, an artist and art educator from Buffalo, NY. I’m so excited to have a piece entitled “Stacked” in this year’s The Cup, The Mug exhibit. I am fairly new to the ceramics scene, and this is my second time exhibiting at Main Street Arts. Though I have moved throughout the artistic […]

Painters Painting Painters

I will often think of an idea for an exhibition that is not a simple one, one that needs explanation. This is because I like things that are mysterious and also because I like to follow spiraling thoughts that get more abstract, even as they come in to focus.  Our current exhibition, Painters Painting Painters […]

From The Dirt to The Skies: Chad Grohman

From the Dirt to the Skies is a group exhibition featuring new works in painting, drawing, and printmaking from four of Main Street Arts’ gallery artists — Pat Bacon, Chad Grohman, Meredith Mallwitz-Meyer, and Lanna Pejovic. The artwork is inspired by fog-laden lakes, wooded paths, gardens, and objects plucked from nature.  Executive director and curator Bradley Butler […]

Through drawings […]

Jody Selin

Until about the age of 6, I grew up in fairly rural area of Greensboro, North Carolina. My parents were avid gardeners and some of my fondest memories where of snapping green beans, skinned knees and following my parents around the yard, as they pruned and planted throughout the growing season. There was plenty of land to […]

Chad Grohman

I am from Buffalo, NY and have spent all but one year of my life there, minus the four years of undergrad at Rochester Institute of Technology. I didn’t really live in Rochester so much as the college itself, so I don’t really count that. My MFA was in a distance program so I stayed in […]

Richard Rockford

My association with Main Street Arts begins with the show, Sacred Curiosities, running October 13–November 17 at the Clifton Springs, NY gallery. Though the title sounds a bit awkward and mysterious, it is actually quite on the mark. Since time began some humans have had deep feelings for certain objects, shapes, colors, and “special” things […]

Dianne Baker

I am drawn to what is overlooked—the transcendent in the forgotten, the discarded, and the mundane. By reconfiguring these unexpected materials and objects into collages, assemblages, and sculptures, I attempt to subvert  the viewers’ perception and to value the past and its remains for they provide insight and connections to the present. If the art […]
