Join us Thursday, June 16 from 5-7 p.m. for the opening of 15 Miles on Today’s Erie Canal, an exhibition of photographs by Willson Cummer of Fayetteville, New York. Cummer hiked and photographed the Old Erie Canal Trail linear park from DeWitt to Canastota in 2014 and again in 2016. He found that as his own life had changed, so had the trail and his approach to photographing it. The images in this exhibition depict some of these changing impressions. The opening includes light refreshments and a talk by the artist. The opening and exhibition are free and open to the public. We hope to see you!
