Home is more than just a place to hang your hat, it's art!

-A A +A
By John Werenko

In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet we hear the memorable lines, “A plague on both your houses!” The exhibition at the Art Center that opens Friday, with a reception from 5-7 p.m., is anything but a plague. The exhibit is a celebration of not only the house but the home as well.

An example of this play between the word house and home is Terry Foxx’s “Childhood Home.” The title says it all. It is, in fact, a picture of her childhood home in Utah that no longer exists. In Christine Brown’s “3 Prospect Ave, Troy, N.Y., My Home,” the late nineteenth century Victoriana house, with its white clapboards, glassed sun porch and mullioned corbels supporting the deep overhanging steeply pitched roof exudes a feeling of permanency. She is a “Duchess” that has withstood decades of northern New York winters.

Kathleen Fraser’s “English Country Cottages” and “English Churchyard Dovecote” tug at one’s wanderlust the way lavish photographs in “Fodor’s Travel Guide to the British Isles” do for the potential tourist.
