171 Cedar Arts Center Exhibit

Three of my pieces are going to be in the “Roots and Blossoms” show that opens March 9, 2018 at 171 Cedar Arts Center in Corning, NY. It’s an exhibition of artwork created by former and present-day students of 171 Cedar, as well as artists who’ve shown work at the Center in the past. For this new show, 171 Cedar picked two paintings I previously showed there in a Corning Painters Group exhibit back in the early 90s. They also chose one my newer works, “Interactive Sign Book”, from 2016. [http://jessetownsley.com/?page_id=561]

It happened one evening

Alt ’67

I just finished a triangle painting called Alt ’67 which graphically investigates reports that certain rumors involving the Beatles back in the 60s might have actually been true. Curiously, the piece accidentally coincides with the 50th anniversary of Sergeant Pepper.
