ART | "Conversations with Artists" 

When done with care, recreating a work of art can often give a unique perspective on the original. In the exhibit "Conversations with Artists," now on display at Genesee Center for the Arts & Education's Community Darkroom Galleries, photographers have re-imagined works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, and other artists. Drawing inspiration from paintings, photographs, poetry, and sculpture, the works in "Conversations with Artists" search for the mood, method, and meaning of the original while adding a layer of personal insight. Among the participating photographers are Monika Ueffinger, Terri Sipone, Lisa Wright, Jennifer Banister, and Rebecca Lomuto.

"Conversations with Artists" is on display through Friday, April 24, at Genesee Center for the Arts & Education's Community Dark Room Galleries, 713 Monroe Avenue. Monday: 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday: 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday: 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 271-5920; geneseearts.org.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article has been updated to correct the end date for "Conversations with Artists." The exhibit ends Friday, April 24.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
