Cazenovia During July, residents from Cazenovia and the surrounding areas are invited to enjoy art and beauty by regional artists as showcased at various venues throughout the historic village of Cazenovia.
This Invitational Art Exhibit, which includes drawings, paintings, sculpture, mixed media, watercolors, pastels, photography, glass and coiling (basketry), is available for viewing July 1 through 30 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Hall, Circa, Cazenovia Artisans, Cazenovia Jewelry, Isabella’s, The Gallery of CNY, Common Ground and the Cazenovia Public Library. This month-long event is an opportunity for local residents to see what their neighbor has been up to — several of them are internationally renowned artists whose work hangs in esteemed collections.
“This show strives to be diverse and varied while providing a showcase for a portion of the wealth of artistry that is prevalent in this region,” said art exhibit Co-Chair Stephen Carpenter.
From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, there will be an Art Exhibit Reception and Gallery Walk. The public is invited to this reception with music, located at St. Peter’s Episcopal Hall. Artist demonstrations are growing in popularity and will be a part of this event as well. Relax while watching artists do what they love — sculpt or paint to music — then grab a camera and join a group for a photography walk-about.
Accompanying all this visual beauty will be a participatory site-specific sound installation at 11 Mill St., by Syracuse composer Edward Ruchalski with the assistance of the BOSS RC-20 Loop Station. All are encouraged to help him build on his five-minute sound loop performed and recorded, layer by layer, in real time.
This Loop Station has become a favorite among pop and jazz artists, and here you join in to create duets, trios, quartets, even an orchestra of sounds. The functional music is intended to enhance the spirit of the space.
