Fall exhibits to open this Saturday at Schweinfurth

Late Morning, Early Winter, created in 2020 by Pennellville artist James Leach, is included in Member Show 2022. The exhibition will be on display at the Schweinfurth Art Center from Aug. 27 to Oct. 16, 2022.

AUBURN, NY (Aug. 23, 2022) – The Schweinfurth Art Center is hosting an opening Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022, for its two fall exhibits: Member Show 2022 and In Conversations with Nature, a solo exhibit by Syracuse artist Nikolay Mikushkin. An opening reception will be 5 to 7:30 p.m.

The Member Show features artwork from 112 artists, mostly from New York State. They comprise diverse media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, fiber arts, and more.

“They say practitioners of music are the best fans of musical performances. Therefore, the same could be said of artists being the best fans and supporters of visiting art museums/galleries,” said Syracuse artist Sherry Spann Allen. “A member show is a wonderful opportunity for amateurs, hobbyists, and professional artists to take that opportunity to be inspired and to learn as much as they can from each other.”

Forty artists participating in the show are from Onondaga County, 16 from Cayuga County, and 12 from Monroe County. New York City’s boroughs are home to nine participating artists. See the complete list of artists below.

Also opening is a solo exhibit of plein air oil paintings made by award-winning artist Nikolay Mikushkin, a Kazakhstan native who studied art in Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1996.

“I consider myself a plein air landscape artist, with my work unified from this special and original dialogue that I have with nature,” Mikushkin says in his artist’s statement. “I have always been driven and fascinated by the rural environment. From searching for the perfect location for my paintings, to the rush of adrenaline when the weather shifts, I have not stopped painting the outdoors for the past 40 years.”

Both exhibits will be on display through Oct. 16, 2022.

Another exhibit will be opening Sept. 2, 2022, as part of our First Friday festivities. The Auburn Community Forest Art Show, sponsored by the City of Auburn’s Department of Engineering Services, features artistic interpretations of some of the city’s most celebrated trees created by local and regional artists. Several artworks will be on display in the Schweinfurth’s Gallery Julius.

The Schweinfurth’s First Friday event runs 5 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 2. The event is free and light refreshments will be available.

The galleries are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $10 per person for the Schweinfurth exhibits, or $15 per person for admission to the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Museum of History & Art, which is located next door. Schweinfurth members, participating artists, and children 12 and under are always free. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
