Gallery: “Fragments of What Once Was” by John Cropley, presented by TPC:

“Modern-day ruins dot the landscape around us, some of them hidden and some in plain sight,” Cropley said. “I seek out these places and try to capture a sense of what they are now and what they once were, what they once meant. Some reflect only that fading past, but others teem with new life as nature reclaims them.”

John Cropley is a New York City native and longtime resident of New York’s Capital Region. He has been a newspaper writer and editor for more than 30 years and a photographer for more than 40 years.

Art Workshop: Paper Marbling, presented by TPC:

Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. The patterns are the result of color floating on either plain water or a viscous solution, and then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface, such as paper or fabric. In this workshop, participants will only be using paper.
