“BEFORE IT’S GONE, Views of a World in Flux,” is a two-person show of work by Jay Hart and Ed Brothers in both galleries at State of the Art. Hart shows digital geographic renderings and says:  “My work is a sampling of ice-bound geography in various states of change.  I hope the trip around the planet will refresh the visitor to the timeliness of climate awareness, beyond the obligatory melting features of our news media.”  Brothers’s oil pastels—both recent and older–illustrate unique moments initially captured in photographs and then savored in the painting creation process. He states:  “We have to deeply appreciate this reality so we may act to conserve what may be lost.” Show dates: November 4-28, 2021, with a reception Gallery Night, Friday, November 5, 5-8pm—contingent on COVID protocols. Hours: Thurs.-Sun.: 12-5pm. 120 W Martin Luther King, Jr./State St, ADA accessible with curbside parking. The gallery follows NY State and Tompkins County COVID protocols.
