‘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.

Come in costume for the Halloween performance!

Music by Brian and Erin Schey

Book and Lyrics by Thom Bishop

Blood and murder set the stage this Halloween as The Palace Theater presents One October Midnight: A New Musical Thriller. Based on the grotesque, horrific and heart-wrenching tales of Edgar Allan Poe this whodunit murder mystery musical promises a night of suspense, terror and lost love.

Follow 1940’s gumshoe Inspector Wilson on his manic chase through the haunted streets of Baltimore to capture the infamous October 9th Serial Killer. With songs inspired by Poe’s poems and short stories such as The Bells, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of the House of Usher, this new musical explores the supernatural hallucinations brought on by the killer’s steady decent into madness.

One October Midnight was first presented to sold out crowds in June 2013 as part of The Finger Lakes Musical Theater Festival’s new musical series, The PiTCH. Musically inspired by the preludes and nocturnes of Chopin and Rachmaninoff, One October Midnight brings the pit orchestra to the stage as cast members accompany one another on flute, baritone sax and organ. Original graphic novel-style projections by Montreal-based artist Lateef Martin, drop the audience clues along the way.

Book and music by Skaneateles native Erin (Humphrey) Schey and Brian Schey, with book and lyrics by Thom Bishop. Starring Josh Wilmot as Inspector Wilson and Meghan Jo Clary as Sergeant Munson and featuring Jackie Aberi (Skaneateles High School) , Lillian Boberg (Auburn High School), Mike Clark (Marcellus High School), Steve Condie, Ricky Ducane (AHS), Stephanie Figer, Morgan McIlvain (AHS), Nikki Schwarz, Alex Spear (SHS), Ryan Terhune (SHS) and Caitlin Wilmot.

                                                                  Bird   watching has attracted much attention in recent years as an environmentally   friendly way of producing more visitor spending. Bird-watchers normally spend   the early morning hours bird watching and then have the rest of the day to   shop, dine, and visit attractions, creating a great deal of visitor spending   revenue. With this in mind, the Cayuga County Office of Tourism has developed   a new brochure to help visitors find the birding ‘hot spots’ around the   County. The brochure will be launched with the showing of “The Big   Year” at Auburn Public Theater at the 8 p.m. screenings on October 18   and 19. The first 25 people each night will receive FREE ‘For the Birds’ caps   compliments of the Tourism Office and all attendees will be given coupons   provided by Cedar Craft Wild Bird Center. “The Big Year” is the   story of three fanatical bird-watchers (Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, Jack   Black) and how they spend an entire year competing to spot the highest number   of species. Tickets are $5 in advance, $6 at the door. Join us for a night of   bird -brain fun!
