In Seeing Sight: Catharine Westlake at Hamilton Center for the Arts, October 1 - November 4 2012

Lost in the kerfluffle of the past week was my colleague Catharine Westlake's show of recent artworks on display in the Hamilton Center for the Arts' gallery space next door & upstairs from our Broad Street Gallery in Hamilton, NY. I had encountered Catharine's paintings in the past & was excited for a chance to see a collection of them together ... But aside from a brief look after our October 14 talk by Catharine's friend Richard Castellane have not had much time to spend with the work. I'd meant to re-shoot the pictures I'd taken over the weekend after setup for our Halloween Spooktacular at BSG was complete. But found the gallery occupied by Colgate students in the midst of their 24 Hour Burn where they stage one act plays written by other students. So here are the pictures I was able to get on the 14th, with the show up until November 4 during normal HCA hours.

Our Colgate volunteer Emma on the day I was able to take a look. Interning and volunteering are very important for young people in search of careers and HCA has a close connection to Colgate with many of the staff positions filled by volunteers.

The HCA gallery space on Saturday as transformed into a performance venue for the Colgate students' 24 Hour Burn.
