OHA has amassed a collection of over 2,000 stereographs, or stereo views, of Onondaga County and beyond. Archived in the research holdings, these 3-D photographs have never before been exhibited. Guest curator Colleen Woolpert offers an overview of the collection, providing insight into the little known history of stereo photography while taking us back into the past with the aid of exhibition stereoscopes. The exhibit will be of interest to adults and children alike with historic viewing devices, books, and related 3-D ephemera.
Colleen Woolpert is an interdisciplinary artist who uses photography, video, installation, and performance to explore visual and psychological perception. Her work includes the stereographic viewers at Forman Park in Syracuse, part of the Connective Corridor. There will be an opening reception for the exhibit on Friday, September 21 from 4 - 6 pm. The exhibit, reception, and museum are free and open to the public. The museum is open W-F 10 am - 4 pm; and S-S 11 am - 4 pm.

Pop Surreal/Lowbrow painter that uses fingers instead of brushes, part-time sculptor, rock manipulator, lazy photographer and creator of odd things.
An artist in general. Art maker, specifically. Eugenia Mancini Horan is a NY artist, back in the upstate NY area after experimenting with life on the west coast for 7 years. She has had shows from NYC to LA, and accumulated many collectors in the states and overseas. Her work is as diverse as her manner of thought, so you really never know what will come next from her mind or her work, only that it is something you *really* weren't expecting. The work is designed to make you think, or perhaps designed to make her think, because if all the blanks are filled in the magic is just... gone. Ms. Horan has extensively self-trained in Painting and has her B.A. in it as well as in Philosophy. Now she is able to both create art and prove it exists. Or, create art and prove she exists. She take pride in being perfectionist, rigidly meticulous, and an impressive flair for finishing mere seconds before a show deadline. She likes puppets and prefer dogs to people. Apparently she also dislikes writing autobiographies. The 2 most common adjectives overheard referring to Eugenia Mancini Horan are "unfiltered" and "unique."
If you ask if she does commissioned pieces, the answer is, "But of course!", but she says it in an English accent so it's totally worth asking just to hear.
