Sunday 4pm – 6pm

$2 at the Door

Family Circus is Cal Jarvis and Amanda Camaj

The two of us have been playing together for about two years now. Combining our playing and studying of various instruments, we have played over a span of two decades. Mainly covering songs from other artists at the moment, we arrange them to fit our own styles and influences; we’re also in the process of writing original music. Playing music from traditional 1930′s folk songs to modern rock n’ roll and always having other musicians join in and play with us, keeps the variety of our music endless.  You never really know what you’re going to experience from night to night.

Visit: www.auburnpublictheater.org for details.

For a room or suite please call Skaneateles Suites.

Joyce Backus

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.
