Renowned artist and fashion designer Michaell Houghton has a new piece of art on display for everyone to see.
His latest piece is called The Native. It is inspired by his love of birds, specifically the raven.
“The Raven itself has been very intriguing over the years,” Houghton said. “I’ve just followed it and saw a PBS special, This and That. It just accumulated into this mysterious kind of animal.”
Houghton said he is excited about the exhibition and wants people to be impressed with his unique pieces. He added he looks forward to seeing the expression on peoples faces and opinions they have on his work.
Houghton’s artwork will be up until the end of June. Admission is free and the center is open from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Community Arts of Elmira is located at 413 Lake St in Elmira.
