After two hours of hiking around Clark’s Reservation in Jamesville, New York, I was inspired, finally, to stop in to see the new library at 5110 Jamesville Road (DeWitt, New York 13078). It’s called the Community Library of DeWitt & Jamesville.
Stephen Alexander Clark is an Assistant Professor of Painting at SUNY Cortland. His work here depicts abstracted landscapes. His interest lies in the topography of farmland, the configuration of stacks of firewood and the seeming randomness of camouflage patterns.
This artwork will be on display through June 2019. It is located in a hallway that leads to the main library space on the first floor.
A piece by Pam Steele, who will exhibit in September, occupies the space as well. And an installation by Margie Hughto greets visitors at the entrance. Both pieces belong to the library.

The library is open Monday – Thursday 10 am – 9 pm, Friday 10 am – 5 pm. Saturday and Sunday hours will change come summer – they are currently Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 1 pm – 5 pm.
This little trip inspired me to get to work on a new series of encaustic paintings. Details to follow, hopefully, soon. <3
