The Sinking of the General Slocum
Paintings by Cindy Vojnovic
September 5 – 29
In 1904, the steamboat PS General Slocum, which was carrying German-Americans to a church picnic, sank in the East River of New York City, with an estimated loss of 1,021 of the 1,342 passengers on board—the largest disaster in the New York area prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks. Using records from the period, local artist, Cindy Vojnovic, an ESU staff member, created a series of paintings documenting the calamity.
Reception for artist, Wednesday, September 6, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Yvonne Love: Recent Works
October 2 – 27
Gallery closed for Columbus Day, Monday, October 9
Love uses unusual materials, such as modeling paste, glue and resin to create works that fluctuate between drawing space and holding form. These spaces and forms address experience and memory, positive and negative and the ambiguity of boundaries, which contain and protect or divide and limit.
Reception for artist, Wednesday, October 4, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Impulsi Work by Giovanni Lombardini
November 1 – 21
Lombardini’s recent works arise from the discovery and experimental use of unusual materials and are characterized by a singular use of light creating the illusion of photographic experimentation.
Guest curator: Edward Evans, Gallery 705, Stroudsburg
