August 31-January 9--Lynne Feldman: Good Yontif. In 1997, Rochester artist Lynne Feldman produced a series of 30 small paintings for a children's book titled Good Yontif: A Picture Book of the Jewish Year. ("Good yontif" is Yiddish for "happy holiday.") Richly patterned and painted in jewel tones, her original paintings for the book depict family celebrations for nine Jewish holidays throughout the year.
September 11-November 14--The Frame in America: 1860-1960. With this exhibition, the gallery focuses on a relatively new area of study: the frame as an enclosure and as a work of art in its own right. Surveys by frame experts in 1987, 1995, and 1999 have also revealed a number of superb examples in the gallery's own collection, notably those on paintings by Winslow Homer, Gilbert Stuart, and Elmer Schofield.
Through October 24--Homage: Arbit Blatas (1909-1999) and the School of Paris. Impressionism, Cubism, and Dada are a few of the cutting-edge movements that dominated the Paris art scene well into the 20th century. This exhibition includes lithographic portraits of some of the century's most famous artists, today known collectively as the School of Paris. Drawn over three decades by Lithuanian-born Arbit Blatas, the 14 subjects include Bonnard, Braque, Chagall, Matisse, and Picasso. Each portrait is paired with a work by the master represented.
Through October 31--Fabulous Footwear: New Sculpture by Marilyn Gillespie. The 65 trompe l'oeil sculptures survey the history of footwear from 2,500 BCE to the present, from ancient Egypt to Elizabethan England, Imperial China to flapper-era America.
