Neighborhood of the Arts holds many treasures in our city, including Art Galleries that feature LOCAL artists. Recently two exhibits opened in the neighborhood that we want to make sure you know about. Taking in both exhibitions will show you the incredible talent and diversity in our city.
Sleeping Giants @ Makers Gallery and Studio
When you walk into Makers Gallery and Studio, not only will you be met with the sights and scents of a coffee shop, but also with incredible art.
Currently on display through May 27th you'll see "Sleeping Giants, new work by Andrea Durfee".
About the show: "'Sleeping Giants' is the latest body of work from Rochester native, Andrea Durfee. Meshing figures within landscapes, Andrea's paintings personify the tension between opposing emotions and inclinations. The work displayed for 'Sleeping Giants' represent our connection to our environment, our past, and each other" (via website).
Makers Gallery and Studio Hours: Tuesday-Sunday, 8am-8pm
Pieces of my Soul @ AXOM Gallery & Objects
Currently on display in the gallery is "Pieces of My Soul: New Works by RANGE" through June 11th.
About the show: "Though this is RANGE's first solo show in a commercial gallery, he's a well-established figure in Rochester's art scene. RANGE is a member of Rochester's FUA Krew, which was established in 1989 and has members around the world, and he's a tattoo artist at Vigilante Tattoo" (via Rochester City Newspaper).
