EOH Membership supplies a year of arts, entertainment, activities and community. Each year individuals who cherish the quality of life in this area – make possible a multitude of arts and cultural programs to all.  The Earlville Opera House has been filled with the sounds of world-class folk, blues, jazz, Cajun, Celtic, a cappella, and world music as well as remarkable theater and storytelling. Again this year, we have an outstanding array of talent in our theater and cutting edge artists in our galleries.  And we offer youngsters and adults the opportunity to develop their talents or learn new skills through workshops.

All these projects are accomplished with the help of our members! We hope that you will join the Earlville Opera House members who continue to strengthen and grow the arts here.  As a member of this rural community, you contribute to the valuation of fellowship, creativity, rich history and good old-fashioned fun.

1 - Colleen O'Hara

Colleen O’Hara, Wild World

The Earlville Opera House is thrilled to announce the opening reception for three new exhibitions on Saturday May 6 from 12-3 PM. Artists Colleen O’Hara, Wendy Stanton, and Bill McLaughlin offer individualistic and distinctly different perspectives on landscape, and the viewer’s relationship to environments both real and imagined.

In the East Gallery, Colleen O’Hara’s Kinetic Compositions explores the relationship between the imagined and the real through abstracted landscapes. Says O’Hara of her work: “My work references our reaction and response to the physical world. I am creating an experience of space that situates meaning in a place where it is gradually revealed, but never fully understood.” Having received her MFA in Painting and Drawing at the State University of New York at New Paltz, and her BFA at Plymouth State University, in New Hampshire, O’Hara has exhibited broadly through New York and New England.

2 - Wendy Stanton

Wendy Stanton, Houses in the Trees

We are proud to exhibit Wendy Stanton’s Nature & Fantasy in the West Gallery. Wendy Stanton is a founding member of Main View Gallery & Studio, celebrating the creative power of artists with developmental disabilities. Nature, forests, water and landscapes which incorporate fairies, angels and mermaids are recurring themes Wendy explores through her drawings, paintings and tapestries.  Wendy’s pieces were incorporated into the set of a Franklin Stage Company’s production of An American Fairy Tale in 2009, and were part of a two-person exhibit at the Roxbury Arts Group in Roxbury, NY in Feb. 2013. She also displayed work at the Franklin Stage Company gallery during the summer of 2013.

3 - Bill McLaughlin

Bill McLaughlin, Nocturne #1

With A Little Night Muse, featured in the Arts Café Gallery, Bill McLaughlin “explore[s] that mystical time of day between sunset and sunrise when Nature reveals herself to us so intimately.” While muted and obscured, these landscapes give a distinct sense of place, creating intimate and emotional environs for the viewer.

Opening receptions    will be held on May 6 from 12-3pm with light refreshments.  All three exhibits will run through July 8, 2017.  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.
