another artful outing in the Stockade

IMG_2123

My expectations are always high as I head out the door for the annual outdoor art show on the blocks surrounding Lawrence Circle in Schenectady’s Stockade. With comfortable temperatures, art by new and returning artists displayed under sunny blue skies, and exhibitors, neighbors and visitors in good spirits, the 68th Annual Stockade Villagers’ Outdoor Art Show did not disappoint. During over five hours of shooting and schmoozing, I totally enjoyed myself and the 2019 Outdoor Art Show, from my first photo [above, R, entering at N. Church and Front Streets, about 9:40 AM] to the last [below, a portrait of Lawrence painted during the Show by Erik Rutnik].

Later tonight and on Sunday morning, I will be adding over a hundred photos taken while strolling along the blocks of the art show, with images of exhibits, individual works, and individuals. [7 PM, Sunday: Done!]

  • Images may be used by the artist for any purpose without further permission from David Giacalone, who holds the copyright. Others may use images for non-commercial purposes. Please attribute the photographs to “suns along the Mohawk” and David Giacalone.

At this time, I would like to celebrate the “winners” of the prizes and awards granted by the organizers of the Show.

ArtByYTYShare A big follow-up Thank You, to Ivy Yuan, who shared this webpost at her Artbyyty Facebook page Sunday evening (Sept. 8). That’s great enough, but it also triggered a lot of visitors, many of whom have the very good taste of liking Ivy’s art a lot, and are curious enough to check out other artists and webposts, too.  As cosmopolitan as she seems to be, Ivy probably knows more Italian than I do, but I just have to say “grazie i prego!
