Sunday, April 21thru Friday, April 26th
Exhibition Opening Party Saturday, April 20th 5 – 8 pm

Please join Upper Jay Art Center and Recovery Lounge for This Flesh We Inhabit, a multidisciplinary exhibition showing the work of Patricia Downs and Mollie Ward. Both Downs and Ward are local artists, raised in the north country and currently living in Plattsburgh, NY.

Downs creates sculptural forms, using primarily repurposed fibers. She explores and pushes the limits of her medium and interrogates the historical and contemporary notions of what defines fine art, or its value over craft objects made through processes often thought of as “women’s work.”

Ward’s ceramic sculptures and large-scale pastel drawings depict the figure, in varying levels of abstraction.

In This Flesh We Inhabit viewers will see new and old work from the artists. Learn more HERE.

Accessibility Note: This exhibit will travel throughout several floors the building and involve climbing two sets of stairs.

People, Plants, and Apartheid: A Film Series for Palestine

Flying Paper

Tuesday, April 23, 6:30 pm

The uplifting story of resilient Palestinian youth in the Gaza Strip on a quest to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most kites ever flown. “The film offers a rare glimpse into the humanity of Gaza, showing a story rooted in the simple desire of local kids obsessed with seeing their creations take flight and fill the sky” – The Times of Israel

Organized by High Peaks-area residents and members of PS: Letters for a Ceasefire weekly letter writing group, this film series raises money for three Palestinian families. Attendance is free, but donations are encouraged as we work to raise funds for families trying to evacuate and survive day-to-day.
