“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.

Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know…

… that from its humble start, Armory Square played an instrumental part in Syracuse’s industrial and economic life.  In 1849, the mill pond and swamp that once covered the area was filled in with dirt from Prospect Hill (near current day St. Joseph’s Hospital).  The first armory was erected in 1859 for the 51st Regiment and was designed by Horatio Nelson White.   The current armory building (now home to the MOST) was rebuilt in 1874 after fire left most of the original building in ruin.  When the railroads came to town, there were two stations located in this area due to the large number of warehouses, boarding houses and manufacturers located there. In the 1930’s when the railroads were removed from the streets downtown, much of that activity left as well.  The area was left relatively empty and buildings were left to decay.  But in the 1970’s, a group of forward-thinking entrepreneurs, architects and artists began buying these buildings and transforming them into productive pieces of real estate.  Today, Armory Square is home to retails businesses, great restaurants, upscale apartments and condos, offices, art galleries, a science museum and much more.

Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know…

… that beer brewing has a long and venerable history in Syracuse.  Commercial brewing began around 1800 and by 1880 about forty breweries had been established in Syracuse. The number of breweriesbegan to decline in the late 1800′s.  In the late 1800’s Haberle Brewery, established in 1855, purchased three smaller breweries in Syracuse (Kearney’s, Crystal Spring and National) making them one of the larger and better known Syracuse breweries.  Haberle was also the first brewery to use Skaneateles Lake water.  The statue of Gambrinus (the mythical god of beer) stood atop the Haberle Brewery looking over the northside.
