A day for enjoying art and music in Canandaigua

If you love art, downtown Canandaigua has it, especially on Saturday.

Multiple stores, including galleries and music performers, participated in the annual Canandaigua Lake and Land Art and Music Walk.

The event, which was organized by the downtown Business Improvement District, began at noon with a ribbon-cutting ceremony welcoming one of the newest businesses to the area.

Wine University, which is owned and operated by Angela Moore, provides a number of items available for connoisseurs, from customized wine glasses to clothing.

Moore moved the business from Syracuse to Canandaigua, in search of a location that “appealed more to wine lovers,” she said. She spent a year looking through different upstate towns, starting in Ithaca before eyeing Geneva. Moore said she “fell in love” after stopping in Canandaigua.

“There was something that appealed to me,” Moore said.

Artist Jeanne Beck celebrated the one-year anniversary of moving into her new studio and gallery space on Mill Street.

A former writer, Beck’s work tends to be more abstract, focused more on ideas than representations of the surroundings.
