Calendar of Events in the Finger Lakes

Festivals, Happy Hour, Live Music, Theatre, and More!

It doesn’t matter what your interests are or who you’re in the Finger Lakes with, you can always find a great event to enrich your time in the region with those you care about. 

Events take place all year round in the Finger Lakes region. From lakeside (and on the lake) events in the summer to harvest activities in the fall, snowmobiling or snowshoeing in the winter, and festivals in the springtime! Step inside a glassmaker’s studio to blow your own glass, stroll Main Street on a food tour, or gather for live music and theater performances. Browse the list of Finger Lakes events below or search the specific dates you will be visiting to see everything going on in the region.

Great Events that Happen Every Year

Below, you will find dozens of great events happening throughout the year with many of them happening annually. If you have memories of favorite annual Finger Lakes events from childhood such as cardboard boat regattas, hot air balloon festivals, cheese, apple or pumpkin festivals, to name a few, it’s likely that event that still takes place or, has likely improved your enjoyment. If you see a special event that piques your interest but can’t make it, click on the event anyway, it might be coming back next year!

Events Added Daily

Make sure to check back frequently to see if any other great events have been added. Events are added daily by businesses from every sector and interest so if there is nothing that sparks your interest now, there very well could be soon!

Schweinfurth Art Gallery
Both Ends of the Rainbow and The Three Lakes Sampler 2020 Online

Our annual student exhibition has moved online! The Schweinfurth Art Center loves student art, and we hated having to cancel our annual exhibition of student art, Both Ends of the Rainbow. So we decided to create videos of student art that would have been in the show and share them with you on our website. Our first video features art by students at Owasco Elementary School in the Auburn City School District. Look for more videos in the coming weeks!

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Portrait of Jennie webinar on June 4 hosted by Eastman Museum

The George Eastman Museum has announced it will host a virtual discussion on the film Portrait of Jennie (William Dieterle, 1948) on Thursday, June 4 at 1 p.m. with members of its Moving Image Department. The museum’s 6th Nitrate Picture Show was originally scheduled to kick off with a screening of Portrait of Jennie on June 4, 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum made the decision to postpone the festival to June 3–6, 2021. In lieu of welcoming patrons to the Dryden Theatre next month, the museum is offering everyone a virtual experience to explore the film in a new way from home.

 

Portrait of Jennie (1948) is an average love story,  starring Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotton, directed by William Dieterle and produced by David O. Selznick. It claims its rarity in the final reel, as the black-and-white film moves to a final three-strip Technicolor shot and the aspect ratio changes to reveal a wider image on screen.

 

“For most of its running time, Portrait of Jennie is an eerie and unusual love story typical of the chances filmmakers were taking in 1940s black-and-white cinema. But in the last reel, it passes through three color processes (two of which were obsolete) and a change in aspect ratio that was unheard of at the time,” said Jared Case, curator of film exhibitions, George Eastman Museum. “When we initially screened David O. Selznick’s personal print of the film in 2015, we were able to re-create the Magnascope effect that was used for the original showings in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles, as the screen opens up to reveal a wider image in the final reel. Without the ability to screen it at this year’s festival, we wanted to offer patrons a chance to take a deeper dive into what makes this film so special.”

Through this free webinar, Curator of Film Exhibitions Jared Case, Preservation Manager Anthony L’Abbate, and Chief Projectionist Spencer Christiano will talk about the film, Portrait of Jennie (1948), its technical peculiarities, how they fit in with cinema history, and how those aspects are re-created in a modern cinema. Christiano will stream live from the Dryden Theatre projection booth to demonstrate the techniques used to exhibit the film in a manner consistent with the filmmaker's artistic vision. With no Nitrate Picture Show this year, tune in and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at what might have been—and will be again! Registration is required as spaces are limited.

Support the George Eastman Museum
This is a critical time for museums across the globe. The George Eastman Museum encourages individuals to visit eastman.org/support, if you are able to contribute to the museum’s Annual Fund at this time. Donations of all amounts are appreciated. The unrestricted dollars that membership and annual fund gifts provide are essential to the museum's operations, and the exhibitions and public programs that bring our collections to life for our audiences. And as with all of our community's cultural organizations, these dollars have never been more critical.

About the George Eastman Museum
Founded in 1947, the George Eastman Museum is the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the largest film archives in the United States, located on the historic Rochester estate of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman, the pioneer of popular photography. Its holdings comprise more than 450,000 photographs, 28,000 motion picture films, the world’s preeminent collection of photographic and cinematographic technology, one of the leading libraries of books related to photography and cinema, and extensive holdings of documents and other objects related to George Eastman. As a research and teaching institution, the Eastman Museum has an active publishing program and, through its two joint master’s degree programs with the University of Rochester, makes critical contributions to film preservation and to photographic preservation and collections management. For more information, visit eastman.org.

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Theresa Caputo, from TLC’s hit show, Long Island Medium, will be appearing live at Clemens Center on Tuesday, June 9th at 7:30 p.m. Theresa will share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way.

“The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

The highly-rated show Long Island Medium follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which lead to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television show, Theresa has appeared on such programs as “Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Fallon,” “Steve Harvey,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “Dr. Oz,” & “The Today Show.”

Theresa’s latest book, “Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again”, was released in 2017 and debuted on the NY Times Best-Seller List at #3. With her energetic, positive, and encouraging tone, Theresa uses the lessons from Spirit to guide the reader through grief toward a place of solace and healing. Theresa’s second book titled “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” was released in September 2014 and debuted at #9 on the NY Times Best Seller List. Her first book titled “There’s More to Life Than This” was released in the fall of 2013.

Theresa has been a practicing medium for over 20 years. She helps individuals find closure by delivering healing messages. For Theresa, this is not just her job… this is her life. Learn more about Theresa at www.theresacaputo.com.

Although Theresa will be giving readings to various audience members throughout her show, the purchase of a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

Schweinfurth Art Center building in Spring with blooming trees
Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Finally Bassist Elliot "Oz" VanDerVeer was added completing the group.
The band played it's first show in August of 2017 and has since become one of the area's busiest groups. The band has played many area Festivals, Bars, Breweries, Wineries and Restaurants.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.

Schweinfurth Art Center with art installation on building
Threads of Light

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

For the past three years Petty Thieves has been providing Auburn NY and the surrounding area with live performances featuring the music of Tom Petty as well as of his friends and influences.
The band is a product of Auburn Public Theater's Tuesday open mic night. Lead singer and guitar player JD Balloni met guitar player and vocalist Sam Pruyn as well as keyboard and harmonica player Loren Miller. That trio formed in the Spring of 2017 and quickly added Rich Howard, a drum instructor and fill in player for many local groups. Finally Bassist Elliot "Oz" VanDerVeer was added completing the group.
The band played it's first show in August of 2017 and has since become one of the area's busiest groups. The band has played many area Festivals, Bars, Breweries, Wineries and Restaurants. A regular in the annual Tomatofest line up and before the shutdown could be seen once a month at Auburn's Next Chapter Brewpub.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Drive or walk by the Schweinfurth Art Center after dusk to see the installation

The Schweinfurth Art Center is participating in the International Day of Light with a new light installation that will be projected onto the second-floor windows of the art center. The installation will be visible 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night and can easily be seen in front of the center, located at 205 Genesee Street, Auburn.

The exhibit, titled “Threads of Light,” is a collaboration between Skaneateles artist Lorne Covington and contemporary textile artist Gerri Spilka. Covington, who creates interactive artwork and installations as Noirflux, manipulated images of Spilka’s large-scale art quilts by adding movement. The resulting work will be a changing textile of pattern and light.

The exhibition is part of “Light Windows,” a monthlong, world-wide exhibition by artists at home and art venues closed by the COVID-19 pandemic that was organized by The HoloCenter — Center for the Holographic Arts based in New York City. The HoloCenter planned “Light Windows” as an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank
Méthode Champenoise Experience at Dr. Konstantin Frank

May: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM

June: Fridays 2 PM, Saturdays 2 PM, Sundays 2 PM

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting our classic Brut. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of sparkling wines including Riesling Nature, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Celebre Rose are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.

About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.

50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.
