Imagine Offers ‘Visions of Skaneateles’   “Visions of Skaneateles,” featuring watercolors by Lucie Wellner and photographs by James Peluso, will open 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 3 and run throughout August 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. Wellner, of Pompey, has been painting with watercolors since 1997. Her work has been seen in some 30 exhibitions throughout the region.

“Landscape is particularly enticing to me because in addition to offering the pleasure of being out of doors, it is where light can be at its fullest or most subtle,” she says. “In watercolors, color is subsumed under the force of light, revealing a reality that is both concrete and luminous, holding an aura that draws the viewer into the world of the painting.”   Peluso, of Skaneateles, is owner of Alexandria Photography. His images in the show were “captured over a period of time, as I saw cool things when I was out and about in Skaneateles,” 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 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.   For more information, call (315) 685-6263 or go to www.imagineskaneateles.com or www.facebook.com/imagineskaneateles.

August 7th  - Music & A Movie – Hoopes Park, E. Genesee St., Auburn . Joe Whiting Band will perform at 6:30 p.m.  Movie: The Muppets at 8:30 PM, Rated PG.  On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Crhis Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary, and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tributeband called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.  www.auburnny.gov  315-255-4737

August 7th – “The Emperor’s New Clothes” – Weedsport Free Library, 2795 E. Brutus St., Weedsport.  The Emperor’s New Clothes will be performed by the Merry-Go-Round Youth Theatre.  A fashion-obsessed Emperor, who is blinded by his search for the perfect wardrobe, hires two swindlers to sew his royal vestments. Hardly up to the task of creating these extravagant garments, the trickster “tailors” manage to convince the Emperor that their clothing can only be seen by the wisest people in the kingdom. Can one man’s honesty help the Emperor to see the error of his vanity before he strolls through Pantaloon wearing nothing at all?  11am, free.   http://merry-go-round.com/youth-theatre/summer-tour/  315-255-1305
