March 20-21/POTTER and TIOGA COUNTIES – The Potter-Tioga Maple Producers Association is offering visitors a SWEET TIME! Visit the maple operations for free demonstrations, tours, sampling, shopping, and much more fun. Many of the individual producers continue to expand their operations, adding new equipment and taps, upgrading technology, adding commercial kitchens, hay rides and more diverse products. Some facilities are adding restaurants to serve pancake breakfasts on the weekend and considering expansion into other maple-inspired fares. Event hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thru March 31/ARDMORE – Gillian Pokalo – Remnants at the Black Moth Gallery. Select works by local printmaker/photographer, Gillian Pokalo. In Pokalo’s mixed-media artwork it is immediately evident she is carrying the torch of the radical art movements of the early twentieth century to our present day. The compositions balance excitement and harmony, the exposed as well as the cryptic. The works are incredibly innovative in their vision and applied techniques of layering materials with recognizable and unrecognizable imagery.
