Color your world...

The art world in Oswego County is awash in color! Over the past few weeks, we’ve enjoyed several art exhibition openings…

Michele Southgate: Bits ‘n’ Pieces
Southgate’s solo exhibition is a visual celebration. Each piece jumps off the canvas and into the imagination of the audience; capturing their attention and welcoming speculation. One cannot help but to explore this curious new world introduced to us by the artist through her watercolors and photo montages.

Nick D’Innocenzo, Paul Garland, Sewall Oertling, Thom Seawell: Four Degrees of Separation
An interesting quad, these artists provide an eclectic variety of work; something to suit everyone’s taste. The audience ponders over D’Innocenzo’s archival digital paintings and photo montages; Garland’s mixed media; Oertling’s watercolors and graphite drawings and Seawell’s screen prints. One becomes an attentive listener as each artist tells the story of his own reality.

These exhibitions are sponsored by the Art Association of Oswego and shown in the Oswego Civic Arts Center on East Fourth Street in Oswego. Gallery hours are from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.

The Art Association of Oswego also sponsors arts education in the community. For more information or to get involved, call 315-343-5675 or visit http://www.oswegoarts.org/.
