Submitted photo and press release:

There will be a demo at GO ART! from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, featuring the painter Barbara Jablonski, a resident of Pittsford.

It is sponsored by the Batavia Society of Artists.

"Composition and Painting the Landscape" is the focus of this demo. Jablonski loves drawing and painting waterscapes, especially plein air compositions. However, composition, designing and painting the waterscape using a photograph parallels many of the techniques that are used when painting nature en plein air (in open air).

In this presentation, she will share many of the compositional techniques to make WATERSCAPE PAINTINGS (where created in a studio from a photograph or plein air on site) that are believable, reflective of surroundings and subjects well as colorful.

Jablonski paints en plein air, that is, on site, winter, spring, summer and fall. Anywhere she travels she will paint -- NYS, the seashore, boats, the mountains, our national parks and Europe. She captures color and light while painting contemporary life in her landscapes. She loves architecture, nautical scenes, and winter scenes throughout this beautiful land.

"I pack my car or trailer and take to the road to capture the beauty of the land. 'Plein air painting' is a personal development experience,” Jablonski says. "I will always be a ‘student of the art.' ”

The demo is free to BSA members; nonmembers pay $5.

GO ART! is located in the historic Seymour Place building in Downtown Batavia, 201 E. Main St.

Press release:

The fourth ARTiculations Ability Exhibition® -- a forum for artists with disabilities in Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans counties to display their work publicly -- will open at Independent Living of the Genesee Region (ILGR) in Batavia on Tuesday, April 3.

Titled "Life, Lines & Light," it features the work of Beth Allen, DMV, a veterinarian and mental health activist, whose photographs of animals, plants and beautiful landscapes, mostly in Genesee County, depict inspirations from her own life journey.

A product of a partnership between ILGR and the University Heights Arts Association (UHAA), the Exhibit will be on display through June 22th.

The Opening Reception, is Friday, April 13th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at ILGR’s office, 113 Main St., Suite 5, in Batavia. Allen will be handing out a few of the photo postcards she has created for sharing as Door Prizes at the Reception.

An amateur photographer who picked up the hobby from her mother, Allen found the "mindfulness" she employs when taking pictures to be soothing for her mental health issues, and useful in the support groups she facilitates, so she has dubbed the process "Mindful Moments."

Other artists with disabilities residing in the Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming counties are encouraged to submit their work to this juried competition, as there will be additional ARTiculations® planned quarterly exhibits in the future.

For more than a year, ILGR has been “art partnering” for people with disabilities with the UHAA, a group of artists in North Buffalo with a commitment to community that places art in businesses and nonprofits through an established ARTpartnering program.

The organizers are pleased to note that the ARTiculations Ability Exhibitions® have “mapped” into UHAA’s system by placing a plaque with a Quick Response (QR) code scatter bar graph that can bring up information about it when scanned by your smart phone.

For questions on the event, please call Bridget Mosman at (585) 815-8501, ext. 400.

Independent Living of the Genesee Region (ILGR) is a member of the Western New York Independent Living Inc. family of agencies that offers an expanding array of services to aid individuals with disabilities to take control of their own lives.
