Our Blog

Join us August 5th, 6:00 – 9:00 PM for an exhibition of Central New York artist Barry Darling and an exiting collection of new work. Darling’s recent work involves acrylic color, acrylic medium on canvas and paper, and random use of ink transfers and acrylic pastes.
Darling says of his work:

“Ultimately, I am intrigued by the impact of the image, and secondly by an inferred story or ‘view’ from the contemplative act of manipulating familiar colors and images, and hopefully discovering a little something along the way,” he says. “It’s the small revelation that keeps me involved. There’s an excitement in standing aside and letting things happen.”

In addition to one-man shows locally at the Everson Museum of Art, Eureka Gallery and Le Moyne College’s Wilson Gallery, he has had exhibitions at the Castle Gallery in New Rochelle, Fenton Moore Fine Arts in Buffalo, and Waxlander/Khadoure and Adieb Khadoure Fine Art in Santa Fe, N.M.

We hope to see you here to help us enjoy the new work. Refreshments will be served and Entertainment will be provided by the Usual Suspects, a local old time string band. If you have any other questions, please call the gallery at 315-685-6263 or email us at info@imagineskaneateles.com. You can also find us on facebook. Friend us there and keep up to date on new arrivals, new events and new artists.

Mid-Lakes Navigation Cruises Prepare for Salty Fun

Batten down the hatches – buccaneers will be creating mayhem Aug. 10 aboard all Mid-Lakes Navigation cruises.

Yes, it’s time for the third annual Pirate Day!

Making his first appearance this year will be Capt. Jack.

“We’ll be doing whatever it takes to have fun,” says Capt. Jack, who will take over ships throughout the day. “I get adults and children to laugh and giggle and have fun—everyone totally enjoys this.”

Crewmembers will dress the part, and cruise-goers are encouraged to do so, too. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes.

If you don’t have your own gear, there’s no need to be a landlubber—pirate mugs, bandanas, eye patches, skull rings, earrings and swords will all be for sale.

Openings are available on the following cruises:

• Mailboat Cruise – 10 a.m.-1 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $23 adults; $17 children; $8 for an optional box lunch. Reservations required.

• Lunch Cruise – 11 a.m.-1 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $28 adults; $23 children. Reservations required.

• Lunch Cruise – 1-3 p.m., on the Erie Canal (leaves from Dutchman’s Landing, 7490 Hillside Road, Baldwinsville). $28 adults; $23 children. Reservations required.

• Capt. Hat’s Mighty Sights (sightseeing cruises) – 2 and 3 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $12 adults; $8 children; $38 family.

• Pirate Dinner Cruises – 6-9 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake and on the Erie Canal. $49 adults; $40 children. Reservations required.

• Take-Out Cruise – 6:30-8 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $15 adults; $10 children.
