These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

Judy Collins Live at The Smith

JUDY COLLINS

live at The Smith July 14, 2023 at 8pm

Smith Member pre-sale April 6th (go here to become a member)

General on-sale Friday, April 7th at 10am.

An American icon returns to Geneva. Judy played to a sold-out crowd at The Smith in 2018.

Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, "Wildflowers", has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy’s dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music, won "Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-ten hits and gold- and platinum-selling albums. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album "Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins."

The cultural treasure’s 55th release, "Spellbound," out now, finds Judy enjoying an artistic renaissance. The 13 song album is a special entry in her oeuvre. It marks the first time ever she wrote all the songs on one of her albums. It features 12 new recently-written modern folk songs, and a bonus track of her evergreen, “The Blizzard.”

"Spellbound" is a high watermark of artistry and personal evolution. Though Judy has been writing for half a century, her new album ushers in an era of unbridled creativity.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

July Jazz Greats Concert at Glenora Wine Cellars

Jazz Greats concerts on the Vineyard Stage have been a summer staple at Glenora Wine Cellars since the first concert was held in 1983, shortly after the winery opened its doors. Over the past 40 years, Glenora has welcomed some of the biggest names in contemporary jazz in the world to its stage overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake and the vineyards.

Joining Simpson on the vineyard stage will be guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and producer Steve Oliver. Known for his soulful singing, snappy guitar lines and playful vocalese, Oliver’s playing style has resonated with audiences and musicians alike.

Saxophonist, composer, and arranger, Jackiem Joyner joins Simpson and Oliver onstage. Joyner brings a contemporary soulful sax sound that is influenced from spending his youth playing in the gospel churches of Virginia.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

GC Myers is a nationally known contemporary painter from the Finger Lakes region of New York.  He came to painting in mid-life and quite by chance, because of an accident that occurred while building his home in the early 1990’s.  Since that time, his recognizable landscapes, known for their strong colors and moods, are avidly collected in the United States and abroad.  Over the years, he has had over 40 solo exhibitions at galleries across the country which represent his work.

 

Myers speaks of his newest collection of paintings:

"I’ve been exhibiting my paintings at the West End Gallery since 1995, doing many group and solo shows.  I believe this year’s solo show, Eye in the Sky, is my 22nd at the place I consider my home gallery.  

 

Like many other things that take place over an extended period, my painting has evolved and changed.  The techniques and process of my painting have constantly shifted, sometimes dramatically.  And though I remain primarily a landscape painter, elements have been added to my paintings.  There were red-roofed houses, red chairs, sailboats, paths, and fields of flowers, among others.  And, of course, the Red Tree that became a sort of trademark, being present in the majority of my paintings over the years.

 

But there has also been another element that has been present and almost as ubiquitous as that Red Tree.  It is the sun or moon that often appears as a large ball in the skies over my imagined landscapes.

 

Over the years, this sun/moon orb has taken on a greater role.  Looking back at older work, the sun/moon was not shown often and was quite small in size when it did appear.  It was often just a minor 

 

compositional element.  However, in the intervening years, this sun/moon has grown in size and prominence in the paintings.  It now has a real presence in the paintings, often serving as either the central figure or as a spiritual partner or guide for the Red Tree.  The two often seem engaged in a silent conversation in many of the works.

 

There are probably many reasons for this evolution but the best explanation, at least to my mind, comes from a dream I had a number of years ago.  It occurred in the months before the West End show of whatever year it was, at a time when I was struggling with my confidence.  I felt more deeply blocked and dejected in my work than I had ever experienced before.  

 

I felt empty, like I had perhaps given all I had to give in my work.

 

I had a dream one night during this time.  I was standing under a dark night sky that was colored in dark green tones.  In the dream, I was experiencing the same sort of anxiety that I was feeling in my waking life.  Then there appeared an opening in the sky, as though a small sliding panel were opened in the sky.

 

An eye appeared in the opening.  Tinted green in the light of the sky, it seemed to be a clear and ancient eye, surrounded by deep creases and wrinkles that were visible as it peered down at me through the opening.

 

No words were spoken, no singular message transmitted, or wisdom imparted.  It was just there.

 

It had a great pacifying effect on me in the dream as though I instantly knew that there was something overseeing me and that I was not alone, that all was as it should be.

 

I woke up with that same pacified feeling of assurance, knowing that everything was as it should be. It was a drastic change from my demeanor of the days and weeks before.  Its effect has carried me through that time and in times of anxiety since.  The sun/moon has come to symbolize that dream and the ensuing feeling.  I believe that dream was the starting point for the increased prominence of the sun/moon orb in my work.

 

The sun/moon has become a vital element in my work, nearly as much as my Red Tree.  It serves many roles, often as a steadying force, symbol of hope and a sense of communion with the universe.  I think this year’s show, Eye in the Sky, gives ample evidence of that."  

 

~ GC Myers (June 2023)

 

GC Myers began exhibiting at West End Gallery in 1995 and is one of the Gallery’s most popular artists.  His work is in numerous collections throughout the world.  In addition to being represented by West End Gallery, Myers’ work is exhibited in several other galleries across the country.  His work has been featured in American Art Collector Magazine.  He also was interviewed on the popular Out of Bounds program for NPR by Tish Pearlman and was featured on PBS for Artists Café.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

Symphony orchestra at Taughannock Falls State Park
Four Decades of Music at Taughannock Falls

In this Walk in the Park encore episode (224) from 2019, we interview Kathleen Damiani, former regional recreation coordinator for the Finger Lakes Region of NewYork State Parks. In 1979, she initiated the annual concert series at Taughannock Falls State Park near Ithaca and Trumansburg, NY, which continued uninterrupted for 40 years. The pandemic paused the series for two years, and it resumed in 2022. But due to financial limitations, the concert series is not taking place in 2023.

In the beginning, it was called the Taylor Vintage Summer of Song for its principal sponsor in the early years. Damiani explains the vision that inspired her, the challenges and support she received, and the popular legacy of concerts in the park that continued for decades. 

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access television series produced at PEGASYS Studio in Ithaca, NY by Owl Gorge Productions, a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner. See past episodes.

Symphony orchestra at Taughannock Falls State Park
Four Decades of Music at Taughannock Falls

In this Walk in the Park encore episode (224) from 2019, we interview Kathleen Damiani, former regional recreation coordinator for the Finger Lakes Region of NewYork State Parks. In 1979, she initiated the annual concert series at Taughannock Falls State Park near Ithaca and Trumansburg, NY, which continued uninterrupted for 40 years. The pandemic paused the series for two years, and it resumed in 2022. But due to financial limitations, the concert series is not taking place in 2023.

In the beginning, it was called the Taylor Vintage Summer of Song for its principal sponsor in the early years. Damiani explains the vision that inspired her, the challenges and support she received, and the popular legacy of concerts in the park that continued for decades. 

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access television series produced at PEGASYS Studio in Ithaca, NY by Owl Gorge Productions, a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner. See past episodes.
