#var:page_name# cover

The Evelyn Peeler Peacock Gallery at The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes is pleased to present WE ARE CALLED, a solo show featuring the works of Filomena Jack. On display from April 16 - May 11, 2018, the opening reception will be on Friday, April 20 from 5-8pm at 79 W Market Street in Corning NY. An artist talk will begin at 6pm.

We Are Called... to be friend, saint, and good neighbor. Sometimes we feel as though we are not called for greatness, that we are less than capable, less than worthy, and alone in our journey. We Are Called depicts the interpretations of dreams filled with anxiety and striving, a journey from separation and darkness to relation and enlightenment.

Primarily working in acrylic and ink, Filomena Jack’s paintings are made up of literal and metaphorical layers. Each new painting in the studio begins by wiping away extraneous paint onto new substrates, allowing these layers of paint, ink, and acrylic skins to collect until she is ready to begin a focused painting using these surprising backgrounds. In this way, she states that “the DNA of every painting lives in every other painting” she creates.
