“Roots – Real and Remembered,” a show of sculpture and cross-stitched work by Eva M. Capobianco, will be held at State of the Art Gallery during May. The “real” roots in her work, Ms. Capobianco says, have been found on trails and roads near her home and beyond and they are combined with re-used bits of old furniture, glass and other objects collected over time. This series is a continuation of themes she has explored for years.
The “remembered” roots are memories from her childhood and youth, a new autobiographical series, stitched into both words and images. Not every piece in the show contains a root, she says, but this is the dominant connecting element in both series.
Show dates are May 2-27, 2018, with a reception for the artist, Friday, May 4 from 5-8pm. The gallery is located at 120 W. Martin Luther King, Jr./State Street with curbside parking and ADA accessibility. Hours: Wed.-Fri., 12-6pm and Sat. & Sun., 12-5pm. Contact information: 607-277-1626 and www.soagithaca.org
