The beauty and ecological diversity of the Genesee Valley region has long been a source of artistic inspiration. The Genesee Valley Conservancy (a group charged with protecting land preserves, habitats, and farmland) gave 100 artists of all walks a 12-inch-square canvas to record the beauty of the region upon, and has brought the works of art together for a unique exhibit. The culmination of this community painting project, "The Genesee Valley 100," features 100 unique works in a dramatic variety of styles.
"The Genesee Valley 100" will be on exhibit from November 14 to December 30, at Silver Lake Brewing Project, 14 Borden Avenue, Perry. An opening reception will take place Sunday, November 18, 5 to 6:30 p.m. Regular hours are Wednesday and Thursday, 5 to 9 p.m.; Friday, 4 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, noon to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Free. geneseevalleyconservancy.org.
