Opening Reception and Exhibit: Sisterhood of the Scissors

March 20th, 2015

An impromptu visit to a Matisse exhibit at Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery sparked a chord in a handful of regional fiber artists and resulted in the creation of a “loosely organized bevy of fiber artists from various points of western NY” calling themselves “The Sisterhood of the Scissors.” The upcoming Master Works exhibit running from March 20 to April 17th at the Flick Gallery in Penn Yan will feature work done by these seven fiber artists, as well as Raku fired pottery by Mike Carroll of Avon. The exhibit will also include work in many other mediums created by member artists. Enthralled by the line work of the great masters the Sisterhood’s initial challenge to each other was to create a 12 x 12 study in the style of Matisse. It was an interesting exercise with few rules – 12 x 12 and to be executed in fiber - and great fun to share the results. Each member of the group has favorite artists and together they’ve continued this adventure one foot at a time. On occasion one or more of the group will be unable to stay within the confines of the one foot square – a sort of ‘runs with scissors’ rebellion that they all embrace. Members include Caren Betlinski of Rushville, Julie Brandon of Williamson, Stephanie Ferris of Rochester, Ann Hawkins of Penn Yan, Elaine Ross of Batavia, Valerie Schultz of Honeoye, Liz Scott of Dundee and Kate Wylie of Farmington. This exhibit includes a selection of their exploration of favorite artists as well as pieces that showcase their personal fiber art. The exhibit opens Friday March 20th from 5 to 7 pm with wine tasting, live music, and hors d’oeuvres and is free and open to the public. The Arts Center is located at 127 Main Street, Penn Yan, NY, 14527. Phone 315-536-8226 or email artscenter@ycac.org for more information.

One of the greatest musicals in theater history, Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy is sailing to Rochester. Based on Roundabout Theatre Company’s production, The New York Times hails it a “MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY” and USA TODAY calls it “GLORIOUS and EXUBERANT!” When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love…proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and of course, “Anything Goes.” Don’t miss what the AP exclaims as, “So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!” http://www.ticketmaster.com/venueartist/164/1732681

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.
