Worth a 2nd Look

Taughannock Falls Over Icea 2nd Look Photo Art is a collection of images by Cathleen Abers-Kimball. Cathleen believes that while every piece of photographic art begins with the camera and the artist’s eye, finishing touches by the artist, using digital enhancements, will transform the photo into an artistic creation.

Cathleen lives in Falconer, NY and truly enjoys the familiar yet beautiful scenes she sees everyday in her hometown area. She also loves capturing those images with her camera.

Her main occupation is graphic design and website design. Her other business is 2ndLook Graphic Design. As a graphic designer she spends a great deal of time working in Photoshop. In this enterprise she is combining her love for photography with her inclination to create imagery digitally.

While she has many images from the Western NY area she also includes images from her travels to other locations, images of animals, plants and a category she calls “Everything Else.” Cathleen will continue to create new images on a regular basis.

Unique Amish Artist

Posted on Feb 3, 2014 in Anna Weaver, Artists | 0 comments

Anna 100_5188Weaver is a fresh talent in the “folk art” genre,  an Amish mother with six young children who finds time to do all of the usual chores around the home and can still make time to create genuine “Amish Art”.  Most Amish art is done by “English” artist painting Amish scenes.  Anna has the usual eighth grade education with no formal art instruction.  Her unusual talent was discovered by a local book store owner who saw some of Anna’s original pieces, Amish farm scenes painted on softball sized rocks picked up from the fields where she helped with the farming.

Ms. 100_5190Anna Weaver’s work reflects everyday life and memories of her childhood in a typical Amish community. Examples of subjects are sugar house, wash day, milking time, ice skating, covered bridge, spring plowing, and winter logging. She started painting Amish scenes on slate and smooth fieldstones gathered while clearing fields for planting. Most of these pieces were no larger than a softball.

A local restaurateur noticed her paintings in East Branch Books, a used book store in Sherman, and commissioned her to paint a mural along the full length of one wall in a dining area. With no prior experience in mural art, she produced an Amish scene that measured 30 feet by four feet and depicted a farmhouse, sawmill and an Amish school with children playing in the yard.

Someth100_3849ing Unique Gallery and Frame Shop then asked Ms. Weaver for the opportunity to display and sell her work. She brought in several saw blades of various sizes and shapes with typical Amish scenes painted on them along with a few acrylic on canvas pieces.

Since being discovered she has created a 20′ by 4′ mural of Amish scenes on the wall of a recently opened local restaurant.   After completing the mural she has painted several scenes on canvas which have all been sold at this time.
