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. Taken together visually the relationships between the two art forms become more and more evident, offering both contrast and similarity. In the The Henry M. Kashiwa Eco Gallery at View, Old Forge.
