PhotoExhibitNoticeSpyApr23 I‘m very pleased that Richard Genest is presenting an exhibit of Giacalone photo-canvases at his iconic Moon & River Cafe, 115 So. Ferry Street, in the Schenectady Stockade neighborhood. [Directions] It’s the first art exhibit of my work. Click on the image to the left from the April Stockade Spy for more detail..

Richard calls the show “Beauty Along the Mohawk: Scenes of Schenectady through an artful photographer’s lens.” There are 25 photo-canvases, many of which can be seen in this posting. Click on an image for a larger version. [Note: more photos were added below on Sunday, April 10, 2023.]




Please come to Moon & River Cafe to see them in person. I hope I’ll have the chance to see you at the Reception, April 11, 2023, 6-8pm, or without the crowd, any day in April. Our Photo-Canvases Page has more than forty canvases, including those featured in the M&R show.

Follow-up: (April 9, 2023) MANY THANKS to INDIANA NASH and the Daily Gazette for a fine article about the exhibit.


Update: Early Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023. As promised above, I took a better camera and my monopod to Moon & River Cafe Saturday afternoon. Below are images from the Exhibit.
