ART | Upstate New York Wayzgoose 

The Genesee Center for Arts and Education this weekend is hosting the second annual Upstate New York Wayzgoose, a fair for artists who are curious about creating books. The interesting name comes from medieval times when a feast was hosted by the master printer for his employees. This year's celebration of printing and book art history will have lectures, tours, hands-on workshops, and demonstrations on paper making, book binding, and printing on an Albion hand press. A variety of local printing companies will have vendors set up throughout the day, including Virgin Wood Type, Rob LoMascolo, and the Western New York Book Arts Center. The Spokes and Ink Bike and Poster Festival will also be on display as part of The Show on Monroe (which is taking place along Monroe Avenue on Saturday, June 4). In true Wayzgoose spirit, the fair will end with a feast for the book makers of the day.

The Upstate New York Wayzgoose will be held Saturday, June 4, 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Vendors will be set up at Blessed Sacrament Church (534 Oxford Street), 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and workshops, demonstrations, and the feast will be held at 713 Monroe Avenue. Tours of individual shops will be held at their locations. More information about the fair can be found at The closing Wayzgoose dinner is $25; all other events are free admission to the public.
