2020 Rotary Summer Festival Rescheduled to July 9 & 10, 2021 @ Geneseo Village Park
Sep 25 all-day

The Geneseo Rotary Summer Festival (originally to be held on July 10 and 11, rescheduled to September 25 and 26) has now been moved to 2021.
• Friday, July 9, 2021
• Saturday, July 10, 2021
• Geneseo Village Park, corner Main and Park Streets

The Rotary Club of Geneseo provides this statement on its website “Due to the uncertainty of the spread of the Corona virus, the Geneseo Rotary Club has decided to postpone the Summer Festival until July 9 & 10, 2021. This was not an easy decision however it was the right decision, as the health of our community is most important. We are planning the same activities with the highlight being the Saturday evening free performance by the Skycoasters. We hope everyone will be able to join us in what has become one of the favorite weekends of the year.”

Lederer Online Digital Exhibition: Between the Moors and the Sea @ Lederer Online Exhibit
Sep 25 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.

Exhibit: Book of Hours/Ours and Selections from Permanent Collection @ Lederer Gallery in Brodie Hall at SUNY Geneseo
Sep 25 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Cicely Cottingham, Tomorrow will come on its green footsteps #4, watercolor on paper, 2020

Victor Davson, Book of Hours/Ours #3, watercolor on paper, 2020

The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery is pleased to present a new series of works by two artists that have exhibited with the gallery in the past, Cicely Cottingham and Victor Davson. The title of the exhibit is based on the Christian devotional prayer book created during the Middle Ages, The Book of Hours. What is remarkable about these two individuals is that though artists of very different temperaments and methodologies, they came together to produce a landscape exhibit that one calls his practice during isolation. The other, Cottingham’s realization and acceptance of the fact that she is indeed a landscape painter.

During their interview, available on the galleries website, they discuss their responses to the lushness of ”Cicely’s garden,” and for Davson, the hidden history of Lenape land on which they and other Northern New Jersey residents live. That deer still traverse the property following an intuitive and centuries old path, going north in the spring and going south in the late fall, is testament to many lives and cultures that maintained themselves on that site. The landscape paintings are clearly that, however they are so much more, they are heart-felt abstractions that touch the sublime that is nature herself.

Concurrent Exhibition from the Permanent Collection: The Landscape and Natural Environment

All exhibits are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are
• Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m.
• Friday 1 -5 p.m.
