Local artist, Victor Corey brings his talents to Genesee Community College’s Lobby Art Gallery with “Watercolor Landscapes,” large scale watercolor paintings that capture nature and the outdoors in beautiful detail. The “Watercolor Landscapes” exhibit will run October 15 through December 1, 2009. An opening artist’s reception is scheduled for Thursday, October 15 from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM.
