Entrances and Exits: Photography by Sheryl D. Sinkow
The first Shakespearean play I remember seeing was “As You Like It” in junior high school. We had to memorize the soliloquy “All the world’s a stage…” and while I don’t recall it in total, the lines And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; has stayed with me – thus the series.

Painter on a Bicycle: Watercolors by Tommy Beers
Tommy Beers loves to bike and to paint, and he’s figured out a way to combine the two. Come see watercolors from his cross-country bike travels and of the beauty of home. At 7 PM, Tommy will give a short slideshow and talk about the people he met and the stories they shared. For him, the journey is more about the spiritual side of things than the gear or the route. It’s uplifting…
Painter on a Bicycle is part of an open house of the new offices of Bike Walk Tompkins and Ithaca Carshare. A celebration of local bicycling will happen at 6 PM. Refreshments provided.

“At Armitage Photography we admire the fleeting scenes of beauty in life. We strive to encourage others to take notice of the small things around them every day by capturing and sharing these moments.
Through photography we balance our technical proficiency and artistic vision to work in harmony as Husband and Wife. As an outlet it allows us to mute our daily worries and pay attention to the subject.
We love to practice all types of photography, especially securing images of the natural world. The uncontrollable spirit of nature exercises our patience and persistence as well as our photography skills.”
