Megan Swan, who just graduated with an art degree from Brockport State College, created the above pictured works that are part of an exhibit at Marti’s on Main.

ALBION – A new exhibit at Marti’s on Main features the work of Megan Swan, a local resident who just graduated from Brockport State College with an art degree.

The gallery at 229 North Main St. includes Swan’s ceramics, sculptures, paintings and black-and-white photography.

The community is welcome to visit the gallery and meet local artists during a reception Friday from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Kim Martillotta grew up seeing this house on Route 98 that was owned by a family friend, Fred Ferris.

The gallery’s owner, Kim Martillotta, also is displaying some of her new work, including a painting of house that used to stand on Route 98 at the current Oak Orchard Estates. That house was owned by Fred Ferris, who worked for Martillotta’s father, Mimi Martillotta. He owned the Gulf gas station that is now the Yellow Goose on Route 98.

Martillotta has other paintings and collages she is presenting publicly for the first time.

She said she is inspired by Swan’s pottery and ceramics. Martillotta would like to raise money for a kiln that could be used by local artists. Martillotta is the leader of

The Art Circle Group, which meets regularly at the Marti’s gallery.

Martillotta made this three-dimensional collage that she entitled, “Circle of Life.”
