August Exhibition - Arbitrary Collecting: Forty Years of Joy

Arbitrary Collections

The Exhibition Room at Gallery Forty-One (41 Lake St. in Owego) presents the August show “Arbitrary Collecting: Forty Years of Joy,” which pulls from the Conti-Cook family collection.

The show features a collection of work from New York and northern Pennsylvania artists owned by longtime Owego residents Ellen Conti and Jack Cook. They have been supporters of emerging artists and buying local before it was a popular marketing phrase.

The collection by more than 15 different artists consists of almost every 2-D medium, including woodcut prints, acrylics, oils painting and watercolors. The exhibition show runs through the end of August.  

July Featured Member Artist - Judy Bjorkman

Judy Bjorkman jewelry

Judy Bjorkman lives in Owego and is a self-taught artisan who has constructed multimetal jewelry for the past 40 years.

Judy prefers making jewelry in abstract designs, most often of a larger style. The Modernist Jewelry movement is inspirational for her, especially such artists as Alexander Calder. She uses base metals (copper, brass, nickel-silver) because they are both affordable and beautiful. She enjoys utilizing the techniques of brazing, hard-soldering, etching, reticulation, fold-forming, hammer-decorating, and occasionally makes chain-mail pieces and her own metal beads.
