Nov. 2nd & 3rd – “In a Dream” – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  In the vibrant, bohemian neighborhood of South Philadelphia, 50,000-square feet of concrete are covered with tile and mirrors-mosaics that were created by Isaiah Zagar, an eccentric, tormented artist. The murals chronicle his love for his wife, Julia, and subtly hint at the darker corners of an extraordinary imagination.  Where Isaiah is obsessive and narcissistic-a former Peace Corps volunteer who has become an icon in South Philly’s art community-Julia is gracious and warm. For decades, their opposing natures complemented one another perfectly. But suddenly the family is torn apart at the seams: A few hours before picking up his oldest son from a rehabilitation center, Isaiah declares to the camera, “As people get older they have less and less passion.” He then confesses to an affair with his assistant, is kicked out of the house, and spirals into a debilitating, suicidal depression. A fascinating portrait of love and betrayal, family bonds, and the intimacy of dysfunction.  The film features music by The Books, Explosions in the Sky, Efterklang, Bibio, Colleen & an original score by Kelli Scarr.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 11/2, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 11/3, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Carl Hoffner Exhibition Opens at Imagine   An exhibition of limited-edition color lithographs and digital paintings by Fayetteville artist Carl Hoffner will open 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 5 and run throughout October at Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles.   The opening is part of the village’s First Friday celebration. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Usual Suspects. Hoffner, who earned an M.F.A. in studio arts from Syracuse University, has been creating fine art lithographs since 1985 and exhibiting them at many of the nation’s premier art festivals. “Early on, I began to experiment with color by drawing on and printing from several stones,” he says. “By taking advantage of the stone’s texture and layering different colors, I created the rich, luminous and soft tones my lithographs are known for.”   Hoffner has created more than 150 editions, and has sold his chromolithographs to 200 galleries in the United States and Canada, along with 100 galleries throughout Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, the United Kingdom and Australia.   In 2008, he began to explore the emerging art form of digital painting, in which traditional painting techniques are applied using digital tools. “I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience, bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color,” he says. 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 and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday.   For more information, call 315-685-6263 or go to www.imagineskaneateles.com or www.facebook.com/imagineskaneateles.

“Fall Into Your Art-ful Life”

Fall into the season and fill your life with art.  You are invited to join us for our First Friday celebration on Friday October 5th from 6-9 p.m. where we will be celebrating the pottery works of Wes Weiss.  Finger foods and light refreshments will be served.

 

The Skaneateles Artisans Gallery Under the Stone is located in The Old Stone Mill at 3 Fennell Street (lower level), offers off-street parking as well as municipal parking, and accepts major credit cards. Visit our website at www.skaneatelesartisans.com. For more information, call 315-685-8580.

Wes Weiss; I am a Central New York resident, currently working out of the studio at Clayscapes Pottery in Syracuse.

My initial exposure to ceramics was at State University College at Oswego in the early 70’s, and later in the 80’s at Syracuse University. I am now taking classes with Tim See.

I hand build using slab construction methods, and enjoy creating curved pieces from leather-hard clay to create architectural and organic forms.  One interest is using heavy doses of colorants wedged into different clay bodies. I have fired in pit, raku, cone 6 oxidation, cone 9 reduction, and wood fire.   I get great results in the wood fire by marbling clay with 2% iron oxide.  I am currently working on carved tree forms and  large organic shapes.
