Monday, July 29 — Cynthia Barbone

An award-winning fiber artist, Barbone says, “I have continually used the duality of the hidden and exposed to explore a physical and emotion sense of place.  My sources are derived from immediate surroundings, travels and my own body as self-portrait.” She earned a B.S. degree at the SUNY College at Oneonta and pursued additional study at the Penland School of Crafts before earning an M.F.A. degree at the California College of the Arts.

Wednesday, July 31 — Adam Daily

Daily’s work spans a variety of media and techniques, including painting, photography, and collage. He often combines digital and handmade processes to create new and unique work. In 2011 he won a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Digital/Electronic Arts for a body of work combining photography, painting, and collage. His most recent exhibition was at the Governors Island Art Fair on Governors Island. Daily earned a B.S. degree at Skidmore and an M.F.A. degree at the University at Albany, State University of New York.

Skidmore's Summer Studio Art Program is under the direction of Katie DeGroot and sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Special Programs.
