LINDSAY FRANCE
“Abandoned History” brings out the beauty of decay. Each location – abandoned schools, factories, theaters and prisons – tells a story steeped in forgotten history. Lindsay has always had a passion for photography originating in the darkroom. On a whim, she joined a group workshop at an abandoned lace factory in Pennsylvania and fell in love with abandoned photography and exploration. Lindsay’s vision draws her to capture the unique and beautiful in places that are forgotten in time. She has combined her love of historical research with her passion for photography to bring to life the forgotten locations she explores. Lindsay has been a photographer for over 10 years and currently resides in Oneonta, NY.

GIA SABATINI
Artwork exploring the relationship between human and nature, which started out as a personal conversation with her sister. “I lost her two years ago, so each paint stroke has been my way of healing. Through painting and layering colors and textures I am able to talk with her. She was an amazing artist and through this medium I feel close to her. I use a variety of materials in my work. Molding paste, recycled tires shreds and coffee grounds to add textures and layers. As well as acrylic and watercolors. I like the way watercolors and acrylics interact with each other. Both having their own personalities and when together they either marry or fight.” Gia has always been making art of some kind or another. She went to school originally to be an Art Teacher but ended up a Graphic Designer as well as dabbled in tattooing.

VERNON BURNETT
“Trails from the Emerald Ash Borer” While splitting wood I noticed the abstract, almost calligraphic designs created by the current forest industry nemesis, the emerald ash borer. Upon closer inspection, I noticed subtle changes in the color and texture of the wood. Using the camera and a macro lens, I zoomed into several small examples of the worm trails. Once the images were enlarged on my computer, I intentionally used an enhanced focus tool to play with over-saturation of color and the natural contrasts within the wood. This resulted in these abstract images. Although college educated in photography, my diverse cultural and experiential background leads me to define myself as more of an urban folk artist. I use photography as a means to document the world around me, calling attention to things that other people sometimes overlook, which helps me engage more deeply with where I am in space and time.
