This exhibit brings together two painters who explore both inner psychology and the physical world around them.
Jane Dell’s paintings explore the expressive and metaphorical potential of scale, the poetics of space and mental states. They represent a relative and curious universe that invites the discovery of imaginative worlds as they unfold.
Liz Parsons’ paintings take form as a visual journal on canvas, where layers of autobiographical experiences evolve through memory, imagery and thoughts.
Jane Dell is an award winning artist, born in NYC. She has studied at the Arts Students League of New York and the School of Visual Arts. Dell received her BFA from Pratt Institute. Dell has exhibited widely in the Northeast including the Monmouth Museum and the Drawing Center in New York. She lives in New Jersey.
Liz Parsons is a mixed media artist living and working in Glens Falls, NY. Considered an outsider/ expressionist artist, she specializes in paintings and artist books.

Impressions of society and tales of American identity come together in this invented and visually narrated exhibition of paintings and drawings by artists Brian Cirmo and Jill Shoffiett.
Based on childhood memory and fantasy, Jill Shofiett depicts scenes of an imaginary south – an escape to a private, delirious utopia. From re-purposed washing machines, homemade roller coasters, weather-beaten structures and the general detritus of daily life in rural America, Shofiett creates a narrative about industrious, embattled creators who are inventing a curious, isolated world in which they inhabit.
Influenced by American history, literature and music, Brian Cirmo creates an environment where the protagonist, inebriated from whiskey, war and solitariness, loses all sense of time in a dystopian landscape while searching for the meaning of being American.
Jill Shoffiett received her BFA from the Mississippi University for Women and her MFA from Pratt Institute. Her work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries including, Pierogi 2000, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Drawing Center, NYC, Monya Rowe Gallery and Casteel Gallery. Shoffiett has received numerous awards, including a New York Foundation For The Arts Fellowship. She lives in Cold Spring, NY
Brian Cirmo received his BFA from The College of Saint Rose and his MFA from the State University at Albany. His work has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries throughout New York State, including the Albany Institute of History and Art, Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, Rochester Contemporary Arts Center, Green Gallery and more. His work has received numerous awards. He lives in Albany, NY where he is Adjunct Professor of Art at Sage College and The College of Saint Rose.
