Through May 28

10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Saturday, Collages and Assemblages by Anastasia Osolin, Vandervort Gallery at View, Old Forge. Anastasia Osolin’s work draws inspiration from the history of science & astronomy, mysticism, art history, Victorian ephemera, and industrial decay. She makes art due to a persistent, lingering compulsion, spending a disproportionate amount of her time creating collages and assemblages from a wide variety of found objects and imagery—gathered from flea markets, yard sales, books, antique shops, trash dumps, or sometimes literally found on the ground during her daily walks.Gallery admission $10 or $5 for members of View.

Through July 9

10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Saturday, an exhibit A Study in Contrasts juxtaposes the works of photographer Barry Lobdell and artist Russell Serrianne. In this collaborative exhibition one can see how shape, form and texture work to convey similar ideas through disparate media. Lobdell’s photographic work is centered on sculptural structures found in nature, while Serrianne’s delicately constructed, abstract vine drawings convey that same sense of the natural world through composition and design.
