Last week, the Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34 at Finger Lakes Community College (3325 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua) opened a show of work by Middlesex artisan and former FLCC ceramics professor, Peter Gerbic. The show, "Totems and Other Tributes to the Earth: Ceramic Works by Peter Gerbic," consists of elegantly formed mini-monolith works of earthy tones and textures.
Gerbic was a member of the Rochester Folk Art Guild and studied with Franz Wildenhain, one of the founders of the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The artist "intertwines the natural and instinctual with symbolic references," says Barron Naegel, assistant professor of art and director of the Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34.
The exhibit will remain on view through March 15. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Saturday-Sunday, noon-5 p.m. For more information, call 785-1369 or visit flccconnects.com.
