Local Artist Jessica Foley’s Work, I Remember, Featured in Lightner Gallery

I Remember, a group of mixed media and installation-based art by Chili resident Jessica Foley, is on display in the Lightner Library Gallery at Keuka College through Oct. 10.

An artist’s reception is scheduled Thursday, Sept. 23 from 4:15-6 p.m. in the Eiseman room in Lightner Library. The reception will feature a talk by Foley and guitar music by freshman Sarah Marquart, a visual and verbal art major from Auburn.

The gallery is open Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-11 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“The work represented in I Remember, stems from the concept of the forgotten or lost memory, and the importance that my heritage and the legacy of my family has upon me,” said Foley. “The exploration of this connection between my past and present has led me to experiment with not only my knowledge of my own heritage, but also to delve into the history of more traditional methods of expression and creativity. Through the use of color, technique, and materials, I allow the viewer access to the feelings and emotions, as well as the history and legacy, that are a part of my everyday life.”

Foley holds a bachelor’s degree in art education, with a concentration in printmaking, from Syracuse University, and a master’s degree in fine arts from Rochester Institute of Technology.
