The Work of Ève K. Tremblay
Saturday, October 14 thru Saturday, November 18
Opening reception, Saturday, October 14, 5 pm
In Fleurs d’archives I present works that explore personal consciousness within a collective landscape. The exhibition features ceramics, drawings, paintings and works on fabric, interacting with each other. Some images come from my research into the photographic archives of the Strand Center for the Arts.
They are staged around my own extensive photo archive such as my past works with scientists, as well as the current photographs I took in my local community with both digital and analog cameras. Then I transferred them onto paper, fabric, white stoneware forms, fire bricks, NYC-style subway tiles, glazed hand-built porcelain, or ceramics as studio-made fired decals. Ceramics shapes are echoed in colored pencil drawing on paper and on acrylic paintings on canvas.

ACW Poetry Machine Comes To Tri-Lakes Region This Winter
If you live in Lake Placid or Tupper Lake, keep your eyes peeled for the Adirondack Center for Writing Poetry Machine this winter. Created in collaboration with visiting writer Erin Dorney, the repurposed gumball machine distributes free, pocket-sized poems.
The Poetry Machine has been moving around to different locations in the North Country since last February, including Chef Darrell’s Mountain Diner (Blue Mountain Lake), Indian Lake Theater (Indian Lake), J.F. Farm Store & Cafe (Northville), Old Forge Hardware (Old Forge), Good Ol’ Wishy’s (Croghan), Otto’s Abode (Wanakena), Franklin County Courthouse (Malone), and Lakeside Coffee Roasters (Rouses Point). Over 1,000 poems have been distributed so far.
The Poetry Machine can be found inside Keeseville Pharmacy in Keeseville, NY during the month of October, where visitors can pick up a free poem while stopping by for their flu shot or Covid-19 booster. In November, you can find the Poetry Machine at the Tupper Lake Public Library and in December it will be at Origin Coffee Co. in Lake Placid.
