May graduate to open Ithaca exhibit

Class of 2014 graduate Samuel C. Guy, who earned a bachelor of fine arts degree, is opening a show at Lot 10, 106 S. Cayuga St., on Friday, July 11, as part of Ithaca’s First Friday Gallery Night. Samuel’s exhibit will be on display at the bar/lounge establishment through Aug. 31. Lot 10 is open Tuesdays-Saturdays from 5 p.m.-1 a.m.

In describing his work, Samuel notes: “My work centers in the coming of age narrative; it deals with issues of youth culture, including ‘30 rock’ culture. The works use found materials and religious imagery, combined with figures representative of youthful disregard. In this way the works seem to toe a line between celebration and sarcasm, promoting discussion in viewers on a distinct new phase of childhood, one which begins in the late teens and often extends well into the 20s.”
