Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, the upcoming exhibition American Moderns, 1910-1960: O'Keeffe to Rockwell, explores a wide variety of American art from the first half of the twentieth century. The exhibition consists of fifty-one paintings and four sculptures by such prominent artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Milton Avery, Stuart Davis and Arthur Dove. Drastic social, political and economical changes during this time period challenged artists to define what could be considered "modern" from a wide variety of definitions. From abstraction and cityscapes to realism and nature, these works selected from the Brooklyn Museum's permanent collection offer a new perspective on American modern art.
Opening night reception: February 15, 2013
Enjoy entertainment, light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar before previewing the exhibition. See website to purchase tickets.

This exhibit will transport visitors back in time with a narrative told through the medium of quilts. Quilters are invited to quilt in the gallery during the Museum’s open hours. All quilts on display are from the collection of Francis M. Parks, who will be leading a walk-through of the exhibit during the reception on Sunday, February 24 from 1pm until 3pm. Refreshments and tea will be available. The Erie Canal Museum is FREE and open seven days a week: Monday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm; Sunday, 10am – 3pm.

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.
