|Cordell Cordaro’s colorful crowd of characters seem to have walked out of many different types of story-realms. Stylistically, Cordaro’s party-scene works nod to Egon Schiele’s elegant waifs, in which anatomical distortions convey emotional truths, but his gestural brushstrokes and playful, mythic injections make his prolific portfolio firmly his own. An increasing master of several media, Cordaro’s work includes paintings, ink drawings, and combinations of the two. Fans can enjoy numerous examples of his work in a variety of venues around Rochester and the Finger Lakes.|
|A Roycroft Master Artisan, Laura Wilder’s artwork harkens back to artistic expression from the early Twentieth Century, taking inspiration from artists like Baumann, Steichen, Holwein, Voysey, Klimt, Bradley. Some of Laura’s career highlights include high-profile commissions from Nazareth College, being named Artist in Residence at the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms, commissions to create the official 2007 Lilac Festival Poster and 2011 Park Avenue Festival, as well as attending a number of popular art & craft shows, including the Memorial Art Gallery’s Clothesline Festival.|
