Rochester Public Library’s contribution

The Rochester Museum of Fine Art owes much to the area libraries since we own nothing more than art. And, what a great thing to own-but only if you have a place to put it up!! We are getting more permanent space at the Gafffney Library.

I stopped at the RPL, hoping to map out my next show there, as well as to see the show on the 1st floor, and the new show at the  Carnegie Gallery, on the 2nd.

First, the student show on the 1st floor is superb!!

I was really taken by this piece, but there are really nice 2-d pieces that just didn’t photo well of because of lighting. Really nice, Spaulding High School!!

Upstairs, in the Carnegie Gallery, we just hung Benjamin Cook.

More pop-ups will happen soon!! Benjamin Cook is next!
