The reception on February 12, 2011 of the cutting edge exhibit of Beth
Bailis and Judith Solomon was received with many comments, such as, “original”
and “ingenious." The Assemblagist’s Perspective at Innovative Arts gallery
invites the viewer to experience the unique outlook of 2 artists who experiment
with disparate materials—found objects, unusual surfaces, and ceramic shapes.
As Eileen McTiernan , gallery director of Mount Beacon Fine Arts
stated, “Bailis’ work often breaks the limits of traditional square canvas and two
dimensional space, with objects reaching out and off in every direction. In her
engagement of three-dimensional space, Ms. Bailis is as much a sculptor as a
painter and collage artist. Her rescue of ‘throw away ‘objects is a reminder that
everything has aesthetic potential.”
Bailis exhibits her Fusion Paintings in numerous galleries and museums
including the Chelsea Art Museum, the Fusion Arts museum and Godwin-
Ternbach Museum at Queens College. She is on the faculty of St. John’s
University, The Westside Y, and Pratt Institute.
Solomon was highlighted as Artist of the Month in the February 2011
Peekskill Beat, published by the Office of Economic Development in Peekskill.
Innovative Arts Gallery showcases and promotes artists working in a variety of
media, to offer visitors a setting to exchange ideas and enhance their knowledge
