Opening Reception and Exhibit: Pure Pigment

May 8th, 2015

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Pure Pigment Coloring with chalk is child’s play, “sidewalk art”. But grown-ups call their chalks “pastels”, and they paint pictures with PURE PIGMENT. While other media use water or oils to carry the color to the painting, pastels lay down pure pigment, and therefore can be exceptionally brilliant.

Pure Pigment is an exhibit featuring the paintings of Mark Verna, a popular Webster painter, many of them in pastel. His rendition of Grimes Glen is so inviting, one could hear the water running over the rocks and feel the sun’s rays. Also on display will be pastels by Wendy Harris of Syracuse. Last summer Wendy was honored to be an artist in residence at the Art Center’s Sunny Point on Keuka. Her week of wandering and painting depicts the beauty and peace of the Keuka area. Soapstone carver, Sandy Cline, of Ontario, Canada, will fill out the featured area of the gallery with his bears and loons and birds and wolves, polished to a shine. His love of the natural world is turned, by his hands, into deep green carvings, reminiscent of jade.

The opening reception for PURE PIGMENT will be Friday, May 8, from 5:00-7:00 PM. Wine will be provided and music by Barbara Anderson at the piano. Please bring your friends and enjoy the art, hors d’oeuvres, punch or wine, and the energy of artists sharing their passion in PURE PIGMENT. The Arts Center of Yates County is located at 127 Main Street, Penn Yan, NY, 14527. Check the website, www.artscenteryatescounty.org or email artscenter@acyc.org for more information.

May 9th, 2015

LIVE NATION PRESENTS BRIAN REGAN LIVE COMEDY TOUR MAY 9, 2015 @ 8:00PM Tickets: On Sale Now Price: $36.50 Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. On November 25, 2011, Brian’s highly anticipated second album, All By Myself, was released on CD available only through his website. The live concert recording was originally released as a digital download in December 2010 only available through his website. Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years - 2008’s The Epitome of Hyperbole, and 2007’s Brian Regan Standing Up - Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow. The Epitome of Hyperbole has also been seen on CMT. Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In January of 2012 Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City with ten sold-out shows selling more than 26,000 tickets. In March of 2010, Brian performed five sold-out shows at Abravanel Hall breaking the previous record of four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005. With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and this year he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. A dorm room favorite, Brian’s 1997 CD, Brian Regan Live, has sold over 150,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums.

The Best of Seneca West

May 9th, 2015

The western shores of Seneca Lake are home to some of the most well-respected wine-makers in the Finger Lakes. On this tour, you will learn their stories and taste the outcome of their commitment and passion to their craft. Our first stop is Kemmeter Winery, the boutique winery of Johannes Rienhardt. Johannes comes from a wine-making family in Germany that has been making wines since the mid 15th century. He left Germany, and moved to the Finger Lakes to express his own vision of fine wine making.

Enjoy an intimate experience with Johannes as he shares with you the progress of his young vineyard, followed by a wine-tasting designed to share with you the personality of the fruit in its purest form. Next, get ready to never think about wieners and burgers the same way again.

The FLX Wienery is the special eatery project of couple Christopher Bates and Isabel Bogadtke. Christopher is a Master Sommelier and Isabel was named by Mobil Travel Guide as offering the Best Service in the World. Today, their collaborative energies go into creating Wienery and Burger “Art” bringing together flavors and textures from locally-sourced ingredients that unveil their creations.

From their house-made sausages and freshly ground burgers to their hand-cut fries and chips, get ready for what has been called “arguably the best hot dog stand in the world.” Lunch is paired with selected craft beers from around the globe. After lunch, we make our way up the road to Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyards, where we will enjoy a private tasting in the winery. Wiemer is considered one of the top Riesling producers in the United States, and was recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of the top 100 American wineries for 2014. We will explore exquisite white varietals followed by examples of vineyard variations in their Cabernet Franc. Our final stop of the day is Red Tail Ridge Winery.

Red Tail Ridge is recognized by the New York Times, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast as one of the best producers in the region. Winemaker Nancy Irelan has made a name in the region for exploring grape varieties not seen anywhere else in the region, like the German Dornfelder and the Italian Teroldego in addition to more classic Finger Lakes varietals.

Enjoy a private tasting featuring their array of unique wines as the perfect ending to a great day. Price: $145.00 per person. This price includes the transportation, tasting fees, added services, lunch, and special food pairings. This price is associated with a 5 person total guest count.

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. BEAUTIFUL – The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Featuring a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and the title song, BEAUTIFUL has a book by Tony® Award-nominee and Academy® Award-nominated writer Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, choreography by Josh Prince and took home two 2014 Tony® Awards and the 2015 Grammy® for Best Musical Theater Album.
