Suyama Space
May 19 - August 15, 2014

Looming high above the central nave, New York artist Ian McMahon has created two plaster curtains that constrain and reveal light behind. Structured by the physical stage upon which it is built, Cascade plays off the architectural drama and nuances of Suyama Space. Long rectangular skylights dictate the size and placement of these imbedded works. Giving heavy nod to stage and theater, the flowing forms are paused by their materiality. These ghosted impressions become new architecture, dictating physical movement within space

This exhibit is made possible through funding from 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund, Office of Arts & Culture, and Suyama Space Friends; in-kind support from Litho Craft Inc.; and artist funding, in part, from The Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes’ QuickARTS program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.

Artist Reception, Friday, May 16, 5 - 7 P.M.
Artist Gallery Talk, Saturday, May 17, 12 Noon
