From Maria's publicity release:
Syracuse-based artist Maria Rizzo will be speaking about her art at the opening reception for her traveling exhibition Trees: Totems of Life (on display during the month of June, 2013, at bc Restaurant, Syracuse). Local and original band Wagner 3000 will perform alternative rock music at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Artist Maria Rizzo and band front man Dan Wagner have been married since 2009 and, with each others' support, they have independently shown and performed throughout the state of New York. This event is the first time they have combined their unique visual and musical arts together to create a highly entertaining event.
This event is a celebration of local and original arts and June 14th is a date that shouldn't be missed.
Maria Rizzo is known for her paintings that celebrate trees, nature, and life. bc Restaurant will be the last Syracuse venue in which Rizzo's series, Trees: Totems of Life, will be shown before hanging on the walls of the Living Room Gallery at Saint Peter's Church, in New York City.
Dan Wagner's unforgettable alternative-rock performances, which include hysterical lineups, are reflected in his band's logo, which is a clown sitting on the toilet. Wagner creates shows that combine humorous lyrics and stage charisma. The band Wagner 3000, in each performance, proudly embraces a variety of moods and styles of music with entertaining commentary in between songs.
