What is Galentine’s Day? Galentine’s Day is a fictitious holiday celebrating the strength of female friendships. Celebrated yearly on February 13th, the holiday was invented by Leslie Knope of TV’s Parks and Recreation.

Students featured in the annual KidsART show stop in to look at Penny Santy’s exhibition in the East Gallery.

 

In my time at the Earlville Opera House I have been lucky enough to meet and work with many talented artists and musicians, but this exhibition brings me special joy. The Annual KidsART Exhibit features the amazing work of students from kindergarten through sixth grade. Collaborating with art teachers from local elementary schools, the exhibit celebrates the freedom of expression and incomparable joy that comes so readily from young children.

The importance of art education in our schools cannot be understated. While not as easily quantified as math and reading, there are numerous proven benefits to an arts education, including overall improved academic performance, increased language skills, and improved critical thinking and creative problem solving. Moreover, in asking us to imagine an experience outside of our own, the arts encourage empathy in that they serve as a bridge between different people and cultures.

With this in mind, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of the teachers who have participated in this project. Your tireless dedication and boundless creativity serves not only your students, but our community as a whole.

And finally, to our young artists: bravo on a job well done!

Sincerely,

Kate Castle, Executive Director, Earlville Opera House

ana-egge-for-social-mediaThe Earlville Opera House will host an evening with Americana/folk singer-songwriter Ana Egge on Friday February 10 at 8 PM in the EOH Arts Café. A prolific artist, Egge boasts seven albums, and has worked with musical legends such as Ron Sexsmith and Steve Earle. As for Egge herself, the power of her voice lies in its ability to be at once haunting and comforting, possessing the otherworldly vocal quality of Emmylou Harris and the dark sweetness of Aimee Mann with a smooth effortlessness all Egge’s own.

“We were always the outsiders,” says Egge of her early roots in a small North Dakota town of 50 people. “My folks loved the outdoors and eccentric people…. I grew up with all the time and space in the world.” Egge has since traded the openness of the American Plains for the untamable wilderness of New York City. She’s been around the horn of life’s experiences, having gotten married and become a mother, but that childhood spirit of freedom has matured on her latest album, Bright Shadow. Self-produced by Egge herself, Bright Shadow is a direct collaboration with acclaimed American roots trio, Yep Roc recording artists The Stray Birds – Maya De Vitry (fiddle, banjo, vocals), Charles Muench (upright bass, vocals), and Oliver Craven (mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar, vocals).

Ana Egge will perform in the EOH Arts Café on Friday February 10 at 8 PM. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 EOH members, and $10 students/youth under 18. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.  The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.

santy-for-social-mediaThe Earlville Opera House is thrilled to kick off our 2017 exhibition cycle with “Color Against the Snow,” three stunning and eclectic shows, featuring Penny Santy of Syracuse, Jon Iannitti of Hamilton, and the beloved Annual KidsART Exhibition, featuring the work of students K-6 from area schools.

In the East Gallery, Santy’s Connect – Disconnect iannitti-for-social-media
explores themes of determination and power through her abstracted representations of bulls and cows, often symbols of strength. With A Manhattan Stretch-Warp Experience (Arts Café Gallery), Iannitti presents an energetic, distorted landscape, “a vibrating swirl of social commentary, humor, and fantasy.” Using vibrant colors and/or skewed perspectives, the artists engage and energize audiences, inviting the viewer to challenge their perspective of surroundings.

In the West Gallery, the Annual KidsART Exhibit features the amazing work of students from kindergarten through sixth grade.  Collaborating with art teachers from several elementary schools in Central New York, the exhibit celebrates the freedom of expression and incomparable joy that comes so readily from young children. kidsart-for-social-media The exhibit typically draws more than 600 people over the course of the show and is a unique opportunity for children throughout the region to display their work in a professional gallery, and for the community at large to see the fine quality art these young people are capable of. The multi-media show features artwork from local elementary schools, including Hamilton Central; Sherburne-Earlville; Burton Street in Cazenovia; Edward R. Andrews of Morrisville-Eaton; Perry Brown, Gibson Primary, and Gibson Middle in Norwich, Unadilla Valley and New Life Christian in Hamilton.

Opening receptions for all the artists will be held on January 28 from 12-3pm with light refreshments.  All three exhibits will run through March 11.  Gallery hours are 10-5 Tuesday-Friday and 12-3 on Saturdays.  Admission is free, and the EOH is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.  For more information, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.  The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.
