Week 24, Day 171, October 11, 2009, Art Trail


It's been a great weekend.  We wandered out on the Greater Ithaca Art Trail, and found ourselves in Gary Rith's Studio, the locally famous potter with a huge web presence.

Gary is an excellent host.  If you're in the area next weekend, I highly recommend visiting his studio.  He has great pottery for sale, and gives incredible demonstrations of the creation of his work.

Here our children with their significant others display some of their great newly acquired pottery.  (Aren't they all beautiful?)

Another place that we visited is Nancy Boyce at the Thou Art Gallery in Groton, NY.  If you like bright colorful functional art, this is the place for you.  There's great wall switches, bowls, jewelry, and many other pieces of work.  In addition to her own work, Nancy also sells items from many other artist.  All of it is interesting, and you'll see new things every time you return.  I could spend hours there just looking at all the wonderful pieces of work.

Both of these artist have been great at encouraging me to pursue my interests in photograph.  They are great artist and great people.  Thank you Nancy and Gary for all your help.

Lessons Learned:
  • Your own children make beautiful models.  
Photo details: Exposure time 1/80 sec, Aperture f/4, ISO 1600, Focal Length 22 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 35mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, handheld.

If these are all your children, it is a wonder you have had time for photography - looks nice though :-)

Thank you for the kind comment! I may have been 10 meters away, but I was using a Canon EF 70-300 IS at maximum length (equates to 480mm) ,1/800 sec, f 5,6 and ISO 800. Hand held. One must have a bit of luck some times :-)

Stevo, now that I look again, Kari seems to look a lot like her mom, and the boys a lot like you, what do you think?

Gary, we do get told that often. I think you're right. Sorry boys!
