June is around the corner, wow!  We will be welcoming in summer with an exhibition by our very own, Jeremy Randall. If you don’t know Jeremy, he is my very talented husband. He can be found behind the scenes year round, updating the website, changing light bulbs, and keeping up with the “honey do” work list. He can also be found behind the counters during the summer months when he is not teaching at Cazenovia College. The main hat that Jeremy wears however, is as a potter.  The exhibition of Jeremy’s work, on view through June 30, marks the first time that Jeremy’s architectural ceramic vessels will be paired with his landscape drawings.  “Landscape has become increasingly important to me, both in my work and in my life.  From the rural architectural forms that populate the landscape I call home, to the land that we live on and are sustained by, I am realizing more and more that we need to be rooted in the land.”

We are very excited to be hosting this exhibition, so please join us for a reception June 1st, 6-9pm.  Refreshments will be served, and musical entertainment provided by the Usual Suspects(although Jeremy will not be playing the banjo for this show, he will be in the gallery to chat about his work). We hope you can join us! While your in be sure to take a peak at our new bridal jewelry.  Staying true to our roots, we have found 3 talented artists’ that have created one of a kind engagement rings and wedding bands.  Do you know someone looking to propose…………………….   We hope to see you soon! Warm Regards, Sarah

Barry Darling Exhibition Opens at Imagine Barry Darling Exhibition Opens at Imagine


Paintings by Tully artist and educator Barry Darling will be featured throughout the month of August at Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles.

The exhibition opens Aug. 5 from 6 to 9 p.m., as part of the village’s First Friday celebration. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Pond Creek Bogstompers.

Darling, who was director of the Department of Art at Henninger High School for almost 30 years, has been an adjunct assistant professor of art at Le Moyne College since 1990.

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.

Darling’s recent work involves acrylic color, acrylic medium on canvas and paper, and random use of ink transfers and acrylic pastes.

“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 somethin’ 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.”

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 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
