Reviewed by Matthew Pitcher Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts gallery is back at it again with another highly impressive exhibit. The “Summer Salon Group Exhibition,” on display through September, showcases 10 artists who employ a wide range of creative mediums and styles. The atmosphere of this show is like a carnival with the flashing lights in Sungchul Hong’s high-tech perceptual mirrors, the food appeal of Jae Yong Kim’s glimmering doughnut wall, the vendor memorabilia in Ray Gross’ larger-than-life paint tubes and brushes, and the oddity in Jamie Salmon’s ...Read more

Reviewed by Matthew Pitcher The Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts gallery in downtown Binghamton never disappoints.

By Matthew Pitcher In honor of Black History Month, the Gallery at SUNY Broome is presenting “ORIGINS: Traditions of African Art.” The Bundy Museum in Binghamton generously made items from its private collection available to the college. Library archivist Robin Valashinas, assisted by several students, selected approximately three dozen pieces from Mali, Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Congo, and the finished display is nothing less than amazing.
