Joan Lyons has made work in a variety of media including, and often combining, silver gelatin prints, archaic photographic processes, pinhole photography, offset lithography, Xerography, photo-quiltmaking, and computer-based work grounded in the understanding that photography and print developed simultaneously and in all their myriad permutations are inextricably connected. She has published over 30 editions of her artist’s books.

As Founding Director of the Visual Studies Workshop Press, (1972 – 2004) Lyons was responsible for the production and publication of 450 titles. She is the editor of Artists’ Books: A Critical Anthology and Sourcebook, (1986, ’88, ’91, ’93) and Artists’ Books: Visual Studies Workshop Press 1972 – 2008 (2009). Lyons taught in the M.F.A. Program in Visual Studies and coordinated Artists’ Programs and Residencies at VSW.

John von Bergen, cofounder of Sculpture Space in Utica, lives in Clinton with active studios both in Clinton and Bayside, Maine. He has exhibited his sculpture throughout the Northeast at the Kouros Gallery, NYC, Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, Everson Museum of Art, Schweinfurth Art Center, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, and Farnsworth Museum and Caldbeck Gallery, Rockland, ME. His commissioned sculptures reside in Clinton and Liverpool, NY and Hartford, CT.

His subject matter derives from the marine environment, landscape, the figure, and the physical forces of nature. The welded bronze castings suggest three dimensional drawings of volumetric objects, which and are intended to create a tension between abstraction and representation.

MAN WITH MACHINE| Overall 35"x35" | 16 panels, each 8"x 8" | Oil on canvas

Speaking about politics and science through old-fashioned still life painting is quite a challenge; especially with minimal or no figurative elements. There are several other ideas I'm planning on exploring through the polyptych of the internal combustion engine {an innovation that will soon be a relic and icon}. Man with machine is old news, and nothing new.

Curator Jen Pepper says, "Betwixt & Between: Contemporary Still Life" presents the works of four artists who investigate the traditions of still life painting, capturing subtle beauty in common objects that we come across in our daily lives, while serving as metaphors or memento mori, reminding us that the objects depicted will also come to pass. The works in this exhibition include works in both traditional painting methods with contemporary quirky twists, and works in ceramic creating whimsical objects and the unexpected."
