First Friday is a citywide gallery night that takes place on the first Friday of every month 6-9 p.m. at several local art venues. The idea is to provide a night that is open and accessible to all who want to come out and engage with Rochester artists and view some of the works being created by the Rochester art community. For a full list of this month's participating venues check out firstfridayrochester.org. Below are two selections we think you should check out.
Stop by Dichotomy studios (371 Park Ave.) and check out the current exhibit entitled "Good Things." The exhibit features miniature arts and crafts, none larger than 4"x4", made of all kinds of materials such as glass, ceramics, printings, and paintings. For more information visit dichotomyrochester.com.
At the Rochester Brainery (inside Village Gate, 274 N. Goodman St.) be sure check out to ongoing exhibit "The Unraveling of Privacy" by Alyssa Marzolf. This work focuses around themes of paranoia and suspicion, delving into the roots of humanity's desire for anonymity in the digital age. Susan H Lanier will read "Felecia Sassafras is Fiction," from her debut short-story collection, "The Game We Play," at 7:30 p.m. For more information visit rochesterbrainery.com.
