Exhibition: Painting in Oils by Leslie Heen @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Apr 26 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of realist paintings by Leslie Heen. Heen studied with several national artists among them Steve Carpenter, Robert Liberace, and Jeffrey Hein. Leslie Heen’s work is focused on the figure. However, recently she has incorporated the landscape into her body of work. Heen writes: “I am endearing to respond to the images of life that delight me, sometimes frustrate me, frequently inspire me. My goal is to express these impressions through the medium of oil, endeavoring to illustrate the essence of my subject and to capture the light so important to the painting.”  We look forward to seeing the Geneseo community at her opening, the community that Leslie Heen was an important part of for many years.

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.

Fanatics Presents: Popa Chubby @ The Geneseo Riviera
Apr 27 @ 8:00 pm

Doors open at 7:00 PM / Show is at 8:00 PM. Tickets: $25 in advance / $29 at the door

Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way for more than 25 years. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1994, he has been a force of to be reckoned with on the guitar, and his tempestuous, soulful playing has never been more powerful. An imposing figure with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performance style he describes as the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson,” Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genres most popular figures.

His career has always been about moving forward and carving a place for himself in the imposing terrain of the music business, overcoming odds to continue growing and maturing as a creative force. He has built a constantly increasing base of fans across the world, where in many territories he is a star. A native New Yorker, Horowitz’s first gigs were in the NYC punk scene as a guitarist for what he reflects was a “crazy Japanese special effects performance artist in a kimono called Screaming Mad George who had a horror-movie inspired show.
