Four State of the Art Gallery members showing work at Hilton Garden Inn.


Patty Porter- Patty Porter, an expressive realistic painter, uses a trip to Umbria, Italy and local landscapes to give the viewer a sense of getting away while actually traveling only in their mind.


Eva Capobianco-Ms. Capobianco earned her BFA at C.W. Post in Long Island and then moved to New York City in 1977.  Living and working in Manhattan, and then later on Staten Island, she exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in the city and around the country. After numerous visits, she fell in love with Ithaca and moved here in 2001. She has been a member of State of the Art Gallery since 2004.


Margaret Nelson-Margaret Nelson is an artist in multiple media, including watercolors, digital art, and fabric soft sculpture, who draws much of her inspiration from the natural world. She is a member of the State of the Art Gallery, Ithaca, and of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.


Jay Hart-Jay Hart’s lifelong mapping career has culminated in a collection of regional renderings which use DEM (heights within pixels) as foundation material, or as a means to emphasize terrain shadows within overlaid imagery giving a 3D effect.  There are over 1200 titles on my website: www.earthpattern.com.
