CAYUGA COUNTY OFFICE OF TOURISM    131 GENESEE STREET      AUBURN, NY 13021         315-255-1658

 

 

 

The Cayuga County Office of Tourism is open from 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday through Friday. 

January 13th & 14th  – “Sarah’s Key” – Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St.  Auburn.  Starring Kristin Scott Thomas as an American journalist living in Paris, Sarah’s Key also goes back and forth between events in 2002 and what happened 60 years earlier during the city’s infamous Vélodrome d’Hiver roundup of July 16, 1942.  On that date, French officials and police, not Germans, rounded up 13,000 of the city’s Jews and herded them together for days in horrible conditions in one of the city’s indoor bicycle-racing tracks before dispatching them first to a transit camp and finally to Auschwitz.  Tickets $5, 1/13 – 1:00 & 8:00pm, 1/14 – 8:00pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

January 14 – Winter Woodpeckers – Sterling Nature Center, 15730 Jensvold Rd., Sterling.  There are many birds that spend the winter in our area including four or five woodpecker species.  Come explore the life of a woodpecker, its adaptations and natural history in an indoor presentation.  We will then head out onto the trails to discover which woodpeckers are active and look for signs that others have been in the area. Free and open to the public.  1pm.  Free.  www.cayuganet.org/sterlingpark  315-947-6143

January 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd – Central NY & Atlantic Seaboard Paintings – Dr. Joseph F.

January 20th & 21st – “The Help” – Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St., Auburn.  “The Help” is an excellent adaptation of the bestselling novel about an unlikely rebellion in a Southern town in the 1960s among black maids serving white families and one white woman who wants them to tell their life stories.  “The Help” is a delicious peppery stew of home-cooked, 1960s Southern-style racism that serves up a soulful dish of what ails us and what heals us. Laughter, which is ladled on thick as gravy, proves to be the secret ingredient — turning what should be a feel-bad movie about those troubled times into a heart-warming surprise.  Tickets $5, 1/20 – 1:00 & 8:00pm, 1/21 8:00pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Our featured winery, Red Tail Ridge, is making fantastic wines in European styles that pair beautifully with this cuisine, so come prepared to indulge in an evening of Old-World goodness—with our signature farm table touch.  6:30 reception, 7 pm dinner, 5 paired courses, $60++/person.  Call for reservations.   www.innsofaurora.com  315-364-8888

Be careful at this gathering, however, the next memorial could be for you.  $35/person includes:  the show, dinner salad, choice of prime rib or chicken francaise and dessert.  Seating is limited, please call soon for reservations.  Attendees must arrive by 6pm.  www.highlandparkclub.com  315-252-4993

Exhibition by Joyce Bond Backus Opens at Imagine That… Gallery Sept. 3

Imagine That…, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, will feature new figurative artwork by Joyce Bond Backus throughout September.

The show opens Sept. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m., as part of the village’s First Friday art night. The longtime Skaneateles-area artist—known for her nature, figurative and whimsical paintings—will be in attendance and available to discuss her work. Refreshments and musical entertainment will be provided.

“My recent figure-drawing series combines the tradition of life observation drawing and experimental digital techniques,” says Backus. “I combine multiple hand-drawn images with my digital imagery, handmade paper, hand-written letters and found artifacts. These pieces reflect urban settings, architectural and natural environments.

“Each image created from my life figure drawings becomes a unique work in a series of related themes,” she explains. “My digital techniques have become drawing tools as much as my paintbrush or charcoal stick. I work to create an emotional connection to the art image. I enjoy the psychological element that happens between artist, life model and drawing surface.”

Backus’ jewelry designs are also shown at Imagine That…

Backus works from her home studio in Marietta, where she says she is inspired by “our beautiful area landscapes and my English gardens.”

She earned master’s degrees in illustration and environmental design at Syracuse University and teaches fashion design at SU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Her art can be viewed at www.joycebackus.com.

Imagine That… is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

For more information, call the gallery at 685-6264.
