Time For a Re-fresh

Hello Rochester.

Hello Rochester.

Living: the Rochester Art Center

ROCHESTER ARTISTS COLLABORATIVE logo

A night of contemporary art at the beautiful Rochester Art Center? Of course you should go.

The RAC is moving forward in their second season of RAC2 with the work of local artists Michelle Fagan and William Schmidt. The exhibit will showcase photography as well as a presentation by the artists themselves.

You should go because one, what’s a night without contemplative art to stimulate your intellectual senses? Two, admission is free, and three, there’s a cash bar.

Art and drinks—is there any better pairing? Wings and beer maybe? Yeah, I’m sure there are others, but that’s not the point. Go ahead, live a little. You can always grab your winds and beer after the show…and you probably should.

Veteran’s Day.

THERE’S NO REASON YOU SHOULDN’T LIKE THIS.

Rochester Sartorial is taking an extended weekend. More of like a “take half of the week off because it’s veteran’s day, and everyone should go spend time with their families” weekend.

We’ll continue our shenanigans on Thurday.

Rochester Sartorial: Always providing only the truest style advice—baked fresh daily. The way it ought to be.

Speaking of Art…

LAY SOME CULTURE ON YA’ DOWNTOWN ROCHESTER

There’s a flier about town promising “One night of love…Art.”

It’s brought to you by Rochester’s UNderground ARTist happening—yeah catchy title. But it seems interesting enough.

Fella’s of the “Happening” are turning a Downtown warehouse into an art gallery for one night and one night only…Well, we hope not! This sorts of shin-dig is pretty popular in places like, Chicago, New York City, and LA. So lets keep them coming!

The artshow is going to feature:

  • 15 local artists. One of whom is Bobby Marines from “Thursdays on First” and various other art projects showcased in Downtown Rochester.
  • Their art—painting, photography, video, & sculpture,
  • Music
  • Drinks
  • And many other creative types looking to stir some creative and intellectual senses

Sounds good to us. We’ll have to check it out. We’ll report back with some highlights from the event.

When and Where: Saturday, November 10, at 7:30pm. 115 N. Broadway.

Everyone Should Own at Lease One: A Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

MOULIN ROUGE: LA GOULUE, HENRI de TOULOUSE-LAUTREC 1891, lithograph on woven paper

We don’t care who you are. Every home deserves some great art. Whether you can afford the real thing or just a print doesn’t matter. Show your house some style-love and get something by the greats.

This piece by Toulouse-Lautrec is a great place to start. It’s recognizable but not too recognizable, so it will most likely start conversation—if you fancy that sort of thing. It’s full of color and will great on any wall or picture frame. So you can really design around this piece with any budget.

You can usually find prints—like this one!—from places like Michaels, Hobby-Lobby, or IKEA.  We recommend something modern with a bit of color.

Toulouse-Lautrec was a post-impressionist & art-Nouveau famous in Paris during the later 1800’s. He moved around a little bit, but that’s for another article.
