1570 Gallery at Valley Manor Welcomes Sheridan Vincent

For about 20 years, Sheridan Vincent has concentrated his pursuit of photography in and around Rochester. We live in such a photogenic locale with magnificent trees, beautiful parks, an expansive lake shore, a dynamic riverfront, architectural splendor and, of course, the variety of the four seasons. He moved to Rochester in 1974 from Minnesota to pursue a career at Kodak. Vincent retired in 2005 and has enjoyed continuing in the photography industry as a full-time photographer. In this exhibit, he extended his portfolio of regional scenes of Rochester and parks with a combination of cityscapes and landscapes. Numerous night photographs depict the city as “enlightened and illuminated.”

He enjoys keeping up with the advancing capabilities in play today with cameras, software and media. His photographs can be produced in various sizes with media ranging from conventional frames, canvas, face-mounted acrylic and AluminArte. You can find Sheridan Vincent’s routine exhibits at Image City Photography Gallery, where he is a partner.

1570 Gallery at Valley Manor Welcomes “Color Your Wold”

Genesee Valley Quilt Club (GVQC) is one of the oldest continually meeting quilt clubs in America.  The first meeting in January 1936 was sponsored by the Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC).  The club started with only 11 members and has grown to 280 members today.  GVQC was organized by Mrs. Gladys Reid Holton who was curator of the History of the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences in the 1950s and 1960s.

In the 1930s, the club mission statement was to unite individual experience and thus be able to give inspiration to those who like to make better quilts.  The club motto “Help One Another” was the foundation on which today’s traditions were built.

“Help One Another” extends beyond the borders of the club as GVQC has a long history of community service.  During WWII quilts, toys and monetary donations were made to the British War Relief, the Red Cross, and the Russian War Relief.  Today, through its Love and Comfort Project, members extend a hand to those in need through donation of hundreds of quilts each year.

Besides helping others, the club has felt its most important activity is displaying quilts.  Since 1936, GVQC has hosted or participated in quilt exhibits.  Early displays were held at the Rochester Museum and Science Center.  In recent years, the biennial Quilt Show has been held at Rochester Institute of Technology.

The mission of GVQC is to promote quilting through activities within the community and draws members from Finger Lakes, Central NY and Western NY regions.  Membership represents a wide range of quilting skills from beginner to advanced and all types of quilting and interests, including: traditional, contemporary, modern, hand and machine quilting.  A few members have been recognized in prestigious juried national quilt shows and all the members enjoy learning and sharing their love of quilting together.  New members are always welcome, learn more by visiting their website.


For purchases or more information about this show, please contact Diane Cotton, Gallery Coordinator, at 585.546.8439 ext. 3102.
