Art was out there; were you?

It’s been another art-filled weekend. Please share with us what you saw or heard. Tell us what you liked (or didn’t). If you did the First Friday circuit but don’t know exactly what to say about visual art, then you might get some tips from last month’s post by artist and gallery owner Orazio Salati entitled “You, too, can be an art critic.”

    Not out a lot. I spent First Friday at this blog’s home, the Broome County Arts Council, in its new space in Stephens Square, 81 State St., Binghamton. Ted Davenport provided lovely harp melodies, and some watercolors by Ruby Wang, long hidden in the dim hallways of the Decker Mansion, graced the exhibit area. It was nice to see a steady stream of people coming up to see the new digs and welcome the Arts Council to the neighborhood.

    On Sunday I left the county for Ithaca, and the live folk radio show Bound For Glory (www.wvbr.com/bfg). The guest artist was Seamus Kennedy. Well-known for his Irish music and songs of the sea, he’s branching out to an old love: cowboy songs! Anyone who’s heard him has heard his clear yodels, and he’s adding traditional cowboy songs from the old movies to his repertoire. Plus .of course his humor — he had the audience laughing and singing along during each of his 30-minute sets.
