Main Street Artists Present ‘Favorite Things’ at St. John Fisher
Month-Long exhibit features work by 18 area painters
The Main Street Artists group will present an exhibit at Patricia O’Keefe Ross Art Gallery in the Joseph S. Skalny Welcome Center, St. John Fisher College, 3690 East Ave. Pittsford.
The show runs from Aug. 1 to Sept. 1 with an artists’ reception 6-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is free and open to the public.
The show, with the theme “Favorite Things,” will include more than 50 paintings in a variety of styles and media. A special feature is the unveiling of an oil painting by Margot Fass that represents all members of the group. Fass has worked on this piece for more than a year, beginning with a collage of pieces from paintings by MSA members.
The Main Street Artists group was founded in January 2010 by Suzi Zefting-Kuhn and now has 18 members who share gallery and work space in the Hungerford Building in downtown Rochester. Studio 458 has become a popular stop during monthly First Friday and Second Saturday events. The St. John Fisher exhibit provides a new opportunity for the public to learn about the dynamic group.
“Our members enjoy the experience of sharing our art with each other and the public,” says Zefting-Kuhn. “Visitors often comment on the creative atmosphere we have all worked so hard to create and, to me, that is the best compliment.”
The St. John Fisher exhibit will feature 50 paintings, largely new work, in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, colored pencil and fiber. A wide variety of subjects are covered.
