SBCC plans folk art series on hunting traditions

The South Bristol Cultural Center will sponsor a series of folk art presentations highlighting folk artists and arts in rural hunting traditions at a variety of settings between now and Thanksgiving.

Each is free and open to the public, starting at 7 p.m.

“Shotgun Flowers and Wooly Buggers: Folk Arts In The Bristol Hills” will include fish carvers, fly tiers, storytellers, painters, muralists, and others from the area who carry on community rural hunting traditions through their art forms. Each presentation will include a slide show and narrative of the artists and their arts, a brief roundtable discussion with some of the artists, a time for questions and then refreshments.

Presentations will be:

* Sept. 14 and Nov. 15 at the South Bristol Cultural Center, 5323 Seneca Point Road, Canandaigua;

* Oct. 12 at the South Bristol Fish and Game Club, behind The Brown Dog Bistro on Route 64, South Bristol;

* Oct. 26 at the Wood Library, 134 N. Main St.,

* Nov. 9 at the Honeoye Lake Firemens' Hall, next to Bald Hill Automotive on Route 20A/Main Street, Honeoye Lake.

This program is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts/Folk Arts Program through the South Bristol Cultural Center. For details, call (585) 396-5950, e-mail or visit the Web site, southbristolculturalcenter.
