While on a recent trip to Rochester for some work projects, I had some time to kill between meetings and took a stroll down a few blocks of Monroe Avenue. The street reminded me of a mash up between Hertel Avenue and the possible future of Grant Street.

But What About the Soul that Grows in Darkness:* An Introduction to Gerry Trentham's Apology -from Frank O'Hara's Ave Maria

Residents of the Fruitbelt's McCarley Gardens development aren't happy with the planning effort underway that would see their neighborhood displaced to make room for the University at Buffalo.

Calling all little artistes! The 4th annual "Kids Art Show" at College Street Gallery will be held on Saturday, January 24th from 2:00pm- 4:00pm.
There is no entrance free, and each child can submit up to three pieces. You can drop off the artwork from 5:00pm- 8:00pm on Wednesday, January 23rd & Thursday January 24th. For any artist (especially a child), having a work displayed in an art gallery is a pretty proud moment. It gives a wonderful sense of accomplishment, and encouragement to continue creating.
