Our annual photography show is open to anyone in the Upstate New York area willing to deliver and pick up their own work. Digital and film photography is accepted. A photographic process must have been used in the production of the work. (Scanned work is acceptable, digital art that did not originate from a photographic process is not).
The Ontario County Arts Council will hold its 18th Annual Spaghetti Opera on Friday, October 13, featuring a mix of arias, art songs, and Broadway tunes over a pasta dinner. This arts council tradition includes several local singers, who select pieces they particularly enjoy to share in an event that raises money for scholarships. “There will always be a song that you know well and something you’ve never heard of that becomes a new favorite,” said Judi Cermak, president of the arts council.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. at the Inn on the Lake, 770 South Main St. in Canandaigua. Reservations are required due to limited seating. Tickets, at $40 per person, are available below, or in person at Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery, 71 South Main Street, Canandaigua.
FREE ADMISSION. A conversation with Jeanne Beck. Jeanne, a writer turned artist in her 40’s, has spent decades learning to understand the creative process. Being open to change and recognizing that fear and resistance are lifelong companions in creative pursuits can deepen our connection to our creativity. In this conversation, we'll talk about the changes we choose - and even the ones we don’t - and how the way we respond to them can strengthen the very best qualities within us.
