‘Boughs and Branches’
Opens at Imagine

Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St.,
Skaneateles, will present “Boughs and Branches,” an exhibition of
paintings by cousins Joyce Burgess Snavlin and Linda Davis Reed,
throughout November.

The show opens 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 1, as part of Skaneateles’ First Friday
art walk. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the
Usual Suspects.

“The show’s title symbolizes the fact that Joyce and I stem from the
same family tree of artists—our grandfather was an artist and all his
daughters were artists,” explains Reed. “Joyce’s mother and my mother
were sisters who traveled all over New York and New England with their
artwork.”

For “Boughs and Branches,” Reed and Snavlin have contributed small
paintings by their mothers to hang above their own works. “Our mothers
were the boughs, and we are the branches from them,” Reed says.

Reed illustrated, and Snavlin wrote, “Adirondack ABCs,” which introduces
children to the alphabet through Adirondack scenes and icons. Original
artwork from the book was exhibited at Imagine in September.

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 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to
7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, with extended
holiday hours after Thanksgiving.
