“Beauty can only be seen by your heart….. Not your eyes.” ~ David Garibaldi

This is a co-production between Auburn Public Theater and Cayuga Community College  

Artists transform an empty canvas into a work of art through their skill, experience, inspiration and senses.  David Garibaldi’s life and transition into a world-renowned performance painter is no different.

The culture and color of graffiti art served as an early inspiration for Garibaldi. Born in Los Angles, he later moved as a youth to South Sacramento. It was here that he learned to enjoy the use of his hands and body through art on “larger and somewhat illegal canvases” by painting graffiti as an angst teen. Graffiti artist and high school dropout, he was living day-by-day. The only constants in his life were music and art.

Garibaldi had always combined his passion for music and color, or rhythm and hue, in his artwork. But it wasn’t until viewing performance painter Denny Dent’s portrait of Jimi Hendrix that Garibaldi discovered how his passion for paint and music could be an inspirational experience for more than just himself. He discovered music-driven-art, and in some ways it discovered him, revealing a portrait of passion and purpose.

‘Boughs and Branches’
Opens at Imagine

Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St.,
Skaneateles, will present “Boughs and Branches,” an exhibition of
paintings by cousins Joyce Burgess Snavlin and Linda Davis Reed,
throughout November.

The show opens 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 1, as part of Skaneateles’ First Friday
art walk. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the
Usual Suspects.

“The show’s title symbolizes the fact that Joyce and I stem from the
same family tree of artists—our grandfather was an artist and all his
daughters were artists,” explains Reed. “Joyce’s mother and my mother
were sisters who traveled all over New York and New England with their
artwork.”

For “Boughs and Branches,” Reed and Snavlin have contributed small
paintings by their mothers to hang above their own works. “Our mothers
were the boughs, and we are the branches from them,” Reed says.

Reed illustrated, and Snavlin wrote, “Adirondack ABCs,” which introduces
children to the alphabet through Adirondack scenes and icons. Original
artwork from the book was exhibited at Imagine in September.

Imagine is located in the lakeside village of Skaneateles, nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. It represents artists from across the country and Canada, along with many Central New York artists, to create one of the most diverse contemporary art collections in the area.

The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to
7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, with extended
holiday hours after Thanksgiving.

finger_lakes_museum

Welcome to the Finger Lakes Cultural and Natural History Museum Project, a proposal to create a new museum that will showcase the 9,000-square-mile Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

Contact:                     John Adamski
Contact Info:             Phone: 585-746-6247
                                  Email: mail@fingerlakesmuseum.org

 

Exhibits are planned to include Native American culture, early colonization, and the histories of agriculture, viniculture, and commerce. Artifacts will range from antique boats and farm equipment to an immense freshwater aquarium containing the fish species that are native to the Finger Lakes. Outdoor exhibits will feature live specimens of native wildlife in natural settings like beavers, otters and the Seneca White Deer. Special focus will be given to invasive species such as lamprey eels, purple loosestrife and zebra mussels.

Each of the eleven Finger Lakes will be individually featured with geographical, geological, glacial and topographic details that depict the effects of the receding glaciers on the region 12,000 years ago.

Included in the concept is an art and photo gallery, an auditorium, a bookstore and a research library as well as flex-space for any other regional museums and historical societies within the fourteen Finger Lakes counties to present their own exhibits on a rotating basis.

How far along are we and where do we go from here?

Although the project is still in an embryonic stage, it has received the support and endorsements of the Finger Lakes Future Alliance, Finger Lakes Sierra Club, Life in the Finger Lakes magazine, Seneca White Deer, Inc., and The Nature Conservancy. Soon we will be forming an exploratory committee to study feasibility, select a site, prepare a business plan, and search for members of the Board of Trustees. Fundraising will begin as soon as a not-for-profit corporation is formed and the board is seated.

We are planning for a new facility of about 40,000 square-feet, which will feature state-of-the-art interactive indoor and outdoor exhibits.

How can you help?

Soon this website will be equipped to accept membership applications and other offers of support and announce upcoming fundraising events. Please feel free to offer your ideas and suggestions by contacting us. Thank you.

John Adamski, Project Director
