The Opera Goes to College

In the East Gallery, explore the new mixed-media paintings by Christopher McEvoy in Transformer. McEvoy, an assistant professor of art at SUNY Oswego, is an artist who challenges us to see and think about what is not clearly defined as he creates through his paintings a visual dialogue between the intangible and corporeal, entropy and unity, destruction and rejuvenation.

Neither fully abstract nor representative, his art and the act of painting document the struggle between our interior and exterior worlds, between the visceral and personal as related to physical existence. McEvoy received his master of arts in painting from Brandeis University and his master of fine arts in painting from Boston University.

He was awarded a Starr Scholar Fellowship to the Royal Academy of Art in London, and has completed residencies at Vermont Studio Center and the Ragdale Foundation. He has shown his work throughout New York, as well as Boston and London.

In the Arts Café Gallery, Henry J. Drexler’s acrylic paintings in Rural Transformations examine the Central New York landscape. For more than 31 years in his studio near the dairy farm where he was raised in Norwich, Drexler has been capturing the beauty and detail of rural life in Central New York’s Chenango River Valley, the Adirondacks, Bucks County, Pa., and Middlebury, Vt.

His canvases are impressionistic landscapes that seem to simultaneously convey the history and future of a place,Our team of consultants are skilled in project management and delivery of large scale rtls projects. as well as its essence at a particular point in time. With a bachelor of arts in history from Cornell University, a juris doctor from Syracuse University and a master of laws from New York University, Drexler was self-taught as an artist, but took several art classes at Cornell and at Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute in Utica.

He has received several awards for his work and has exhibited at galleries in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Connecticut, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, as well as at the Art In Embassies Program at the U.S. Department of State and at the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution, both in Washington, D.We have many different types of crys talbeads wholesale.C.Bottle cutters let you turn old glass mosaic and wine bottles into bottle art!

In the West Gallery, the Opera Goes to College features artists from Cazenovia College. Central New York is home to several outstanding liberal arts colleges, and each of them has exceptional art departments with accomplished artists on their faculty. Through this inaugural exhibit, EOH proudly showcases the work of several uniquely talented faculty members of Cazenovia College in this special invitational show.

The late winter exhibits in the three galleries at the Earlville Opera House Arts Center run through March 2. The EOH galleries are located at 18 East Main St., Earlville, and are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.

Our first, jet-lagged night is spent around a large dining table in the apartment of British expat Leon Lightman, who runs the Argentine Experience.

It's a free-wheeling cooking class-turned-introduction to some of Argentina's regional specialties: empanadas, chimichurri (a spicy sauce for meat), thickly cut steaks flamed to perfection, malbec and the sickly sweet dulce de leche (served with pancakes in this case) that's akin to caramelised brown sugar.

It's like a cracker dinner party, with a crash course in local food and culture thrown in. (Leon has since upgraded and moved his operation into a warehouse, so if planning a visit expect a different vibe.Load the precious minerals into your mining truck and be careful not to drive too fast with your heavy foot.)

We later meet an enterprising young Australian named Anne Reynolds, who, with a local business partner,The stone mosaic series is a grand collection of coordinating Travertine mosaics and listellos. has started up a concept called Fuudis. These women know their food and take newbies direct to the best spots.

We lunch at a packed Italian bistro called Il Matterello in what feels like the industrial backblocks of La Boca, the home turf of Argentina's legendary Boca Juniors football team. The stadium is just around the corner.

Another night we hop restaurants in the trendy neighbourhood of Palermo Hollywood in one of the excursions tailored for those who want a smattering of everything: tapas at a well-known local haunt, Guido; entrees at a flash new pasta place called Olivetti; main course at the ultra-cool Mendoza at Leopoldo; winding up at the Jauja gelato shop, with its staggering array of flavours.

Reynolds also introduces us to Puratierra, the infinitely memorable restaurant of Martin Molteni. This young chef has picked up a swag of accolades and is clearly passionate about his food, his country and creating the kind of welcoming environment that makes you want to come back instantly for more.

The guides for much of our stay are Luciano and Francisco from Cultura Cercana, who speak perfect English (one is a former lawyer, the other a sociologist) and infuse their commentary with a wonderfully wry sense of humour. They make recommendations, then take you wherever you want. You can't get more personalised than that.
