For those of you who may actually think highly of me, this is going to make me look very bad.

I did not go to the art reception for this new exhibition at The Point of Contact Gallery, 350 W. Fayette Street in Syracuse, NY.  I pilfered the photos off Facebook.

In my defense, if there can be one, I have been spending my days chasing pokemon at Green Lakes State Park and my nights enjoying live music at various venues in the area.  I blame the pokemon craze on my twenty-three-year-old friend Helen, who exposed me to this phenomenon.  I kept wondering why people had their cell phones at the ready while hiking the trails instead of experiencing the wonder and beauty of nature.

No apologies.  I was obsessed with the game for three days.  It is all I talked about to CFOs of major corporations and other super-duper successfuls at my high school reunion.

Of course, once I ran out of weapons to capture the pokemons, the thought of purchasing more ended it for me and I snapped out of it, lol.

Now I am back to normal, albeit obsessed with getting a good photo op of the owl family that lives in the space between the two lakes.  (This one was taken by my friend, Animal Behaviorist Janet Ridgeway).

I am not apologetic about my social life either.  This has been an amazing summer so far. Many memories with very special people.  A lot of singing and dancing.  (In fact, I was doing exactly that on the night of the opening – to Brass, Inc. at Borio’s.)

I will try to get out to see the Sum Art show in person.  A lot of fabulous work by some of the best talent in Syracuse.  It is up for another week or so.  Check their Facebook page for more information here.

In about an hour, Chittenango High School opens its doors to the public/community for the annual school fair. It takes about three hours to install the middle school artwork on the walls in the halls between the two gyms.  I will be back later tonight to take it all down.

Chittenango High School is located on Route 5 in Chittenango, NY.  The school fair is a visual representation of our entire school’s curriculum with elementary school stuff in the large gym, middle school stuff in the small gym and high school stuff all around the two story building.  It will take place from 5:30 – 8:00 pm tonight!
