'Sense of Place' brings North Country views to Oswego State Downtown

Lawrence Barone's North Country Scenes.Oswego State Downtown offers natural views through its current exhibit, Lawrence Barone’s exhibition “A Sense of Place: Images from the North Country.”

The exhibition, which runs through Sept. 27, is free and open to the public. Oswego State Downtown sits at the corner of West First and Bridge streets in Oswego.

“This exhibit is assembled from work created over the past six years while living and working in Sackets Harbor,” said Barone, an instructor of fine arts at Jefferson Community College in Watertown. Displayed media will include pastel paintings, drawings and pen-and-ink sketches.

Subject matter is drawn from a wide area of Upstate New York. “The North County is often defined by the weather from moment to moment or seasonally on a larger scale or simply a feeling,” Barone said. “Much of the work in this collection is identified by a specific geographical location.”

In addition to the gallery space, Oswego State Downtown also offers SUNY Oswego apparel, memorabilia and event information. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
