New Art Exhibition at the Art Association Of Oswego – Oswego County Today
OSWEGO – The Art Association of Oswego has announced the opening of a new art exhibition for two people in the Timothy McHenry Gallery at the Oswego Civic Arts Center. The exhibit, titled ‘Pictures and Things’, will feature photographs by Ottavio Melucci and driftwood sculptures by Joanne Henry, co-winners of the Solo Show Prize at the AAO Members’ Exhibit l ‘last year.
The show will begin with an artists reception on Saturday, October 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Masking is mandatory. Individually wrapped refreshments will be served.
For Melucci, photography began in her thirties, on hunting trips. Currently, he spends a lot of time capturing photographic images of “landscapes, wildlife and everything in the outdoors”. He says now “even simple hikes are often full of surprises.”
Joanne Henry started saving driftwood when she began to “see things in the debris along the shore of Lake Ontario: a wing, a branch, a beak.” She resides, most of the year, in a lakeside cabin that has become “a home for Wayward Driftwood begging to be resurrected.”
This exhibition will run until October 31. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is also open during art classes, theatrical performances or by appointment.
The Civic Arts Center is located at the north end of East 4e Oswego Street, just across from Fort Ontario. For more information call (315) 216-6782 or visit the AAO website at www.oswegoarts.org.
