Two Shows Open Saturday Oct. 10
Deb and I are going to be busy this Saturday October 10. We are both in two shows opening on the same day.
The Art Association of Oswego is hosting "Willful Eclecticism" a postmodern invitational exhibition at the Timothy McHenry Gallery, Oswego Civic Arts Center.
An artists reception will be held from 7-9pm on Saturday, October, 10.
Willful Eclecticism will feature CNY artists whose work embodies a Postmodern approach. Selected area artists have been asked to submit artwork along with an explanation of its relationship to Postmodern themes such as conscious borrowing of ideas or imagery, skepticism toward universal beliefs, and reaction against modernist strategies of image-making.
Opening concurrently in the Jo Hyse Gallery on the first floor of the Arts Center will be a new exhibition of artwork by the members of Hat Factory, a local art collective of emerging artists whose work is diverse and cutting-edge.
The Oswego Civic Arts Center is located at the northernmost end of East 4th Street in Oswego, directly across from Fort Ontario.
Regular gallery hours are from 2-5 pm on weekends or by appointment. For more info call 315 343-5675.
Bill DeMott and the folks in Oswego always do an impressive job and put on great shows.
Also opening on Oct. 10 is, (R)Evolution Studio's Reply at the Gear Factory, 200 So. Geddes St., Syracuse. Opening night party 5pm - midnight. Music, Art and film screening.
These shows at the Gear Factory are what you might expect in New York City or another major metro area. They draw big crowds and are a lot of fun.
