EARLVILLE – The Earlville Opera House Arts Center opens new exhibits for spring. As the equinox approaches, the days are getting longer and we begin to reach back out to the world around us in renewal. Come and see the new works on display in Other People’s Lives and By the Sea and meet the artists Dane Winkler and Joyce Halliday Smith on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served and these two exhibits open opposite the popular KidsART exhibition in the West Gallery.
In the East Gallery is Other People’s Lives, an installation exhibit by the emerging Central New York artist, Dane Winkler. In his installations Dane absorbs the viewer in a multi-sensory experience that reflects his “bewilderment at the world at large.” Through found objects and fabrication techniques Dane evokes a feeling of nostalgia by giving the viewer a sense of wonder, while hinting at functionality and the separate history of each found item in the piece. Dane received the Nina Winkle Visual Arts Scholarship and Intern Scholarship at SUNY Plattsburgh where he will graduate this spring with a BFA in Sculpture//Printmaking.
