Plans for a rainy weekend

Okay, we’ve enjoyed a great autumn, so now maybe it’s payback time. The weather forecast for the coming weekend (November 3-5) is cool and rainy. Still, that’s doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy Central New York.

Here are a couple ideas that are sure to add a little “sunshine” to your weekend.

Gallery 54’s CNY Photo Expo

This iPhone capture doesn’t do the CNY Photo Expo justice. Stop by Friday evening and see it for yourself.

Let’s begin Friday evening with the opening reception for the 2017 CNY Photo Expo. Why not join us from 5-8 pm at Gallery 54, 54 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles. Most, if not all, the photographers whose award winning images make this show will be on hand. I’m even expecting the judges who made the selections to join us.

The highlight of the evening will take place at about 6:30 pm when cash prizes will be awarded to Grand Prize, First, Second and Third Prize winners. You’ll love their work and more importantly you’ll love the opportunity to meet so many wonderful photographers all in one place. Of course there will be wine, snacks and music all evening, too.

Saturday: Baltimore Woods’ Drawing on Talent Exhibit

Click on this image to see it large enough to read the list of artists whose work is exhibited.

An exhibit of the artwork of some 30 members of Baltimore Woods in Marcellus, NY opens with a reception at the Woods from 2 to 4 pm on Saturday. I got a sneak preview when I dropped off one of my pieces and, believe me, it’s worth the short hike to Marcellus. Hey, you could even enjoy a real hike before or after the reception, if you like. Bring your rain coat if you plan to hike, though.
