The Albany Area Arts Council October Exhibit

By   /   October 2, 2012  /   Comments Off

The Albany Area Arts Council is pleased to present our October exhibit…..Rock, Paper, Scissors. This large and diverse collection showcases the work of three artists; Kathi Schillo, Mike Clark and Chris Stanich. Kathi, the rock, has on display over 80 pieces of jewelry art. Mike, the paper, has striking abstract acrylic and pastel paintings complimented by several graphic photographs. Chris Stanich, the scissors, completes the show with his strong metallic sculptures. Rock, Paper, Scissors runs October 2nd through the 26th with an opening reception Oct 4th from 6-8pm.

Kathi comes to us from the space coast of Florida although she spent many years here in Albany as a business executive with Phoebe Putney and Albany Area Chamber of Commerce. Her intricate work is created by combining layers of fused glass with Swarovski Crystals, pearls, gemstones and delicate beads that gives the jewelry art its three dimensional form. Each piece of this jewelry art is meticulously detailed and involves anywhere from 10 to 30 hours of handwork to create. Kathi ‘s successful private collection is a perfect example of jewelry as an art form that can be adorned by the admirer or framed as a collectible piece of art.

Mike currently resides in Albany and is employed with Avid technology as a senior application specialist. He has a fine arts degree from Louisiana tech. He has lived in Louisiana as well as New York before settling in Georgia. Along the way, he received an Emmy for his participation on the 1996 Atlanta NBC Olympic Team and was nominated for a second personal Emmy for my work with Fox Files. Mike cites his earlier influences to include The Impressionist School and the Abstract Expressionist School as well as Andy Warhol’s 24-Hour Movie of the Empire State Building, the works of Rothko, DeKooning, Fran Lebowitz, Georgia O’Keefe, Dali, Miro, and of course, Jackson Pollack.

Chris originally from Indianapolis, Indiana has called Albany home since 1998. Dr. Stanich practices podiatry at Albany Podiatry Associates LLP. He recalls always having a penchant for working with his hands dating back to his childhood in his dad’s workshop. Over the years, Chris has always had some kind of project in the works. He is a relative newcomer to metal fabrication. As a result of a friend’s request for a burial urn, he intensified his efforts to create more artful pieces, some of which are on current display.
