Artist's Reception

My husband, Frank, and I attended the Sunday afternoon reception for the opening of "A Photographer's Path" at the High Falls Gallery www.centerathighfalls.org. The exhibit was tremendous with work of all styles from talented photographers around the Rochester area.

I had one print titled "Picking Flowers for Mommy" included in the exhibit. This print was also given a Merit by the Professional Photographer's of America and included in the International Print Exhibit in Phoenix, AZ just last January.

I was surprised by friends who came to see the exhibit. Pat Carey, a local musician and Mark Bernreuther, a fellow photographer from Hilton came out to enjoy the photographs.

What a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Art, food and friends... what could be better.

High Falls Gallery

I am a big fan of Sally Wood Winslow and the High Falls Gallery. I have had prints included in several of the popular shows and the next one is happening NOW.
You can take a sneak peak of "A Photographer's Path" until Saturday March 14. After the judges make their final picks, those chosen works will be rehung and the show will begin with an Artist's Reception on Sunday, March 22 at 3pm and runs through May 3, 2009 during regular visitor hours.

If you've never visited High Falls in Rochester this is a great opportunity to see what it's like. Here's the link:


"Perched on the west bank of Rochester's downtown waterfall, there's a visitor center for learning about the Rochester/Finger Lakes region. A small museum gives an easy overview of history, geography, commerce, and culture. Take a ten minute "Taxi Tour' of city highlights, or look back ten thousand years at area geology. The art gallery above is maintained by the city for local artists. Exhibits change often. The lobby gift shop overflows with oddities, practicalities, and good old souvenirs. Take a map to guide you on a 30 minute outdoor stroll from one edge of the falls to the other, through scenes past and present. Once the site of water powered flour mills, today's visitors relax and enjoy spectacular views from 3 overlooks, the old forge site with replica waterwheel, the"leap" whre daredevil Sam Patch jumped over the falls and into history on Friday the 13th, 1829. The Center at High Falls and its historic neighborhood are highly recommended for first time visitors to Rochester, and residents looking for the treasures of their hometown. We are happy to offer guided tours for groups by reservation."

Looking out the window it seems as if Spring is almost here.

Then I remind myself it is only the beginning of March and we live in Western New York. It will be weeks before we see buds and leave the heavy coats at home.

Can't wait for warm days!
