Exhibition: All Weather Gang @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Nov 14 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

David Heubsch, Untitled, oil on canvas, n.d.

Artists: Steve BonDurant, Alan Brewen, Keven Feary, Don Grieger, David Huebsch, Gilbert Jordan, Michael Killelea, and William Mancso

Exhibit Dates: October 24 through December 8, 2018

Opening Reception: October 24, 5-7 PM

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to host an exhibit of landscape paintings by The All Weather Gang. “They are a group of year-round outdoor painters, originally formed as The Group of Two by Don Grieger and John Hodgins in the mid 1980s. With a passion primarily focused on capturing the Western New York landscape, the informal membership grew and became known by its current name. Meeting on Saturday mornings over coffee, members gather to share observations of work they admire, musings over the nuances of changing seasonal conditions which might be captured on the ensuing painting sessions, and other thoughts on the previous week’s effort. From there, The All Weather Gang departs for an impromptu painting session, inspired mostly by the conditions at the time and collective enthusiasm for a particular location. Many of the pieces in this exhibition are a result of those outings.”

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.

Gallery Hours:

Exhibition: Painting Lessons @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo
Nov 14 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Jeanne Beck, Conversations, oil on canvas, 2018

Exhibition Dates: November 7 – December 8, 2018
• Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 7, 5-7 PM
• Artist Talk at 5:30 PM

Canandaigua, NY artist Jeanne Beck will exhibit new art work in a solo exhibit at SUNY Geneseo’s Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery. Beck’s work is well known in Rochester and Buffalo. Until recently she had a studio in Rochester in the Hungerford building and is a member of the Buffalo Society of Artists.

Beck’s new abstract paintings are a shift in her use of form and color. She has moved away from the metallic colors of series like the Book of the Ancients to more personal and expressive content. In this series “Painting Lessons,” Beck allowed her painting process to dictate her color use, gesture, form, and content. In a large way she reveals that the state of our country forced her to “find my center again through my art practice.” That she as an individual could “create more compassion and tolerance” in the world through her art.

Beck’s artwork engages the viewer by exciting the eye with color and movement. Beck has exhibited in juried exhibits from Buffalo and Rochester to North Carolina. She has won several awards including best in show at Rochester’s Arts and Cultural Council and JGK Galleries. Beck’s work is private and public collections including the MacVittie Student Union on the SUNY Geneseo campus. Beck’s new studio and the Jeanne Beck Art Gallery offers exhibit opportunities and workshops to other area artists.

Exhibitions are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery.

Gallery Hours:
Wednesdays & Thursdays: 1:00 – 4:00 PM
Fridays & Saturdays: 1:00 – 5:00 PM

The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery is pleased to host an exhibit that is timely and moving – They That Matter. This exhibit is a tribute to nineteen young men felled by police violence.

Collins is an Ohio based artist whose art practice encompasses painting, sculpture, printmaking, and moves between figurative art work and geometric abstraction. This multi-media artist has received commissions form the Ohio Department of Transportation, Columbus Parks and Recreation, and The Dayton Opera Association and the Dayton Printmaker’s Cooperative Project. Other awards and fellowships include 2 Ohio Arts Council Residency Awards to Germany. Exhibitions include Ladislav Gallery in Pilsen, Czech Republic; Miami University Art Museum; Lalit Kala Akademi Gallery in New Delhi, India; Standehas Gallery in Dresden, Germany; Perdu University’s Reuff Gallery, Gallery Guichard in Chicago; and many Ohio museums and galleries.
