Lederer Online Digital Exhibition: Between the Moors and the Sea @ Lederer Online Exhibit
Dec 12 all-day

After the Hike, oil on canvas, 2020

September 16 – December 12, 2020

The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery is pleased to present in its online gallery an exhibition of plein air oil and watercolor paintings by Leslie Stroz. Since she moved to Devon, England she has become enamored with the rolling hills, tall grasses, and quaint ancient villages still humming with life and character today. Those scenes are perfect foils for the challenge of completing outdoor scenes within a few hours. The different treatment of the oil paintings versus her watercolors denotes the uses to which she puts both medias. The watercolor paintings are to a large extent studies for future paintings. The gallery is fortunate to exhibit an array of different outdoors scenes that require a variety of methods to handle nature’s many surfaces. An extraordinary art instructor, Stroz taught drawing and painting at SUNY Geneseo from 2010 to 2014 until she moved to the English countryside with her husband and daughter to paint and beginning her own teaching practice. Other institutions are SUNY Brockport, Moraine Valley College, Il, Joliet Junior College, IL, and currently an assessment specialist for art with Cambridge-Oxford an affiliate of both Universities. Stroz exhibits her artwork and conducts workshops for students and artists.

A pre-recorded interview with Leslie Stroz will be available on the Bertha V.B. Lederer web page and on YouTube at 5 pm: Artist Interview with Leslie Stroz

Genesee Valley Hunt Races @ Race Grounds
Oct 9 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

stevensprint2007The Genesee Valley Hunt Races and Fall Festival is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY. The Hunt Races have been hosted here for over 120 years, and some of the finest steeplechase trainers on the eastern seaboard bring their horses here to race in this pastoral setting.

But the Hunt Races and Fall Festival isn’t just about horses—it’s about dogs and canine events, too. There are Terrier and wiener dog races, a jumping contest, agility courses, sled dog demos, and of course the Parade of the Genesee Valley Hunt foxhounds. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to attend the event, and some people say that dog-watching is just as much fun as watching the horses!

There’s lots for the kids to do (including stick horse races and pony rides), food and drink vendors, wine and craft beer tasting, shopping, music and more. It’s like an old-fashioned country fair with a race track instead of a midway, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
