The Broome County Arts Council is on a mission to prove that art doesn’t just take place in downtown Binghamton.
The council is organizing its inaugural Art Trail this weekend, including a stop at the studio of painter Dillon Utter in Endicott. The grandson of the celebrated painter Armando Dellasanta works on the second floor of 110 Washington Ave, above the North Brewery. Utter paints with oil on wooden panels he creates himself.
He works from photos he takes himself of portraits or street photography. He says the art trail is a great opportunity to check out an artist’s methods and materials.
“People can actually come up here and watch me work. I have an opening next Friday at the Broome County Arts Council and so all weekend during the Art Trail, I will be working away. I won’t just be hanging out. People will be able to come up and see me do what I do.”
The Art Trail takes place Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4 at 53 venues featuring over 100 artists and arts organizations.
