KaKeART Collaborations

Scene Around Rosendale Cover

Born in Rochester NY and Prague Czechoslovakia the KaKeART partnership began in graduate school at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where Tatana Kellner and Ann Kalmbach met  in the printmaking studio as exiles from the painting department. After graduate school, they arrived in Rosendale to help form the Women’s Studio Workshop, a not for profit […]

Nick Marshall

Hi everyone, my name is Nick Marshall. My recent work, _e_scapes,  is included in Main Street Art’s exhibition “Ink and Paper” and this post will hopefully give you a little more insight to my practice. _e_scapes started with a series of photographs I made in 2012-13. The images depict found snapshots of seaside vacations that are floating […]

Amanda Chestnut: Exploring Racial Identity Through Artist’s Books

Growing up out side of Binghamton, New York afforded me a bucolic, nonpareil childhood that combined a rigorous academic environment with a loving and supportive community. Largely sheltered from cultural strife, these seemingly unobtainable ideals are part of my motivation in asking difficult questions through my artwork. Why can’t life be perfect? Where does this historic […]

Peter Sowiski: Papermaker

I was born in Pittsburgh, trained as a printmaker in Ohio, and spent my teaching career at SUNY Buffalo State.

My studio is starting to look like a depot for packing materials. I have had a lot of work out lately, and it’s all come back at the same time.

Alicia Taylor

One of the best ways I’ve found to focus my scattered mind is to allow myself to be completely captivated by the elements of the earth. I grew up in a house overlooking a large body of water and my fascination with water and the power that it can contain will never cease. I observe […]

Rebecca Lomuto: Beyond the Medium

I have always been concerned with the human figure as a subject. My photographs began as dreary and lovely, using friends as models or rather, place holders. I became less fascinated by the person and more by the form. Eventually, while studying overseas in Florence, Italy, I became less reliant on others to provide that […]

Sue Huggins Leopard: Artists’ Books

In recent years I have concentrated on making artists’ books although I continue to make prints with an eye to experimenting with monotypes and digital processes. LEOPARD STUDIO EDITIONS was established in 2002 and operates from a restored carriage […]
