The traditional First Friday celebration in Skaneateles will offer a glimpse of the future beginning November 3 as Gallery 54 marks the opening of a month-long exhibition of photographs from the winners of this year's Central New York Photo Expo.

This year's CNY Photo Expo was open only to photographers who reside in CNY and to their images of CNY subjects. From 5 to 8 pm this years winners will be on hand to discuss their work and the experiences they enjoyed in creating them.

Gallery 54 is proud to be able to introduce so many photographers whose work is new to much of the Central New York community,

according to Tom Dwyer, one of Gallery 54's owners and it's resident fine art photographer. Dwyer helped coordinate this year's contest. He commented “this reception offers Central New Yorkers the opportunity to not only meet some really talented local photographers but to also purchase prints of their prize winning efforts as well as framed editions.

Mid-evening, cash awards will be presented to Grand Prize winner, Teresa Letkiewicz; First Place winner, Rachel Thompson; Second Place winner, Sue Armstrong and Third Place winner, Sherry Dans.

This year's judges, photographers Phil Spitz, Norm Schillawaski and Chris Murray, all recognized leaders in the CNY photographic community, will also be joining the celebration.

The gallery will feature the music of Chris Molloy and his blue harp, along with wine tasting from Skaneateles' own Anyela's Winery. As usual, refreshments will be served.

Gallery 54 is an upscale gallery of fine art and fine craft, located at 54 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, NY.
