Folkstore Artist Spotlight

The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.   

Folkstore Artist Spotlight:
Roxanne Locy

March 3 - April 28, 2018

Local artist Roxanne Locy (Canton, NY) creates bold and colorful pottery with decorative painted images including flowers, animals, and Adirondack chairs. Her inspiration for her vibrant creations comes from childhood memories of days spent on her family farm and visits to the Adirondacks. After earning a Master of Fine Arts degree at RIT’s School for the American Craftsman, Roxanne worked for years as an art teacher. Reflecting on her career as a educator and artist, Roxanne says, “This experience enhanced my artistic outlook. My students always inspired me to try new things in my own artwork.”

This Folkstore Artist Spotlight will feature a variety of hand-painted functional ceramic pieces including bowls, mugs, and platters as well as recent paintings and drawings depicting outdoor scenes, animals, and more.

Join us for the opening of this exhibit and a Meet the Artist Reception on Saturday, March 3rd from 10:00am-12:00pm!
