Credences of Summer
Saturday, June 24 through Saturday, August 19

Now in midsummer come and all fools slaughtered
And spring's infuriations over and a long way
To the first autumnal inhalations, young broods
Are in the grass, the roses are heavy with a weight
Of fragrance and the mind lays by its trouble.
- from "Credences of Summer" by Wallace Stevens

For inhabitants of western New York, where winters are long, dark and damp, the arrival of summer is always cause for celebration. And Oxford Gallery celebrates this summer with an exhibition of works inspired by the season. "Credences of Summer" will continue through Saturday, August 19 and will feature work in various media by many Gallery artists. Of special interest are several new works by Naples, New York artist Darryl Abraham, whose lively watercolor renderings capture the joie de vivre of summer in the Finger Lakes.

Oxford will also celebrate summer this year by offering patrons a special sale. During the "Credences of Summer" exhibition, prices of all works in the Gallery, including Oxford's large collection of fine period paintings, will be reduced from 15% to 35%. So, enjoy a bit of summer in the cool and hospitable ambiance of Rochester's oldest and most respected commercial gallery of fine art. And, should something strike your fancy, realize a significant savings as well.
