Streetscapes opens at TCPL Friday October 2, 2015

Mural in the Dryden Rd Parking Garage painted by Andy Dolan 
Streetscapes, curated by Jay Potter, opens at Gallery Night on Friday, October 2.  This dynamic exhibit will feature a collection of work that draws on creativity and inspiration from our urban surroundings. Using a mixture of diverse media, local street artists will explore the influence of the urban environment through color, energy, movement and personal experience culminating in sincere straight-from-the-gut expression. 

Streetscapes is an inherent appreciation of urban culture, in all its dangerous, poetic, authentic - and sometimes rebellious - glory.  The artists will include Jay  Stooks, Jeff Szuc, Jim Garmhausen among others.

This exhibit is designed to compliment the live street art painting event, Get-Up State 2015, that will have taken place at 770 Cascadilla Street the previous weekend.  

A special opening reception will be held from 5 to 8 PM.  Entry to the Library after closing at 6 PM will be through the BorgWarner Community Room Door.  For more information about this and other exhibits call 607-275-1532 or email
