The Art Association of Oswego announces the opening of two new exhibitions on Saturday, October 10 at the Oswego Civic Arts Center. Opening in the Timothy McHenry Gallery on the Art CenterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s second floor will be Willful Eclecticism, an invitational exhibition of CNY artists whose work embodies a Postmodern approach. Selected area artists have been asked to submit artwork along with an explanation of its relationship to Postmodern themes such as conscious borrowing of ideas or imagery, skepticism toward universal beliefs, and reaction against modernist strategies of image-making.
Opening concurrently in the Jo Hyse Gallery on the first floor of the Arts Center will be a new exhibition of artwork by the members of Hat Factory, a local art collective of emerging artists whose work is diverse and cutting-edge.
Both shows will begin with a public reception on October 10th from 7-9 pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The Oswego Civic Arts Center is located at the northernmost end of East 4th Street in Oswego, directly across from Fort Ontario. Regular gallery hours are from 2-5 pm on weekends or by appointment. Group tours are encouraged. For further information please call 315 343-5675 or visit the Art Association of Oswego online at oswegoarts.org. Both exhibits will be on display until Sunday, November 16th.
