ART | "Photographs Re-Imagined" 

It's no secret that many artists are inspired by the works of other artists; some creators learn to create through imitation. But what happens when an artist uses a single artwork as thematic or aesthetic inspiration for a new work? Through March 28, Spectrum Gallery (100 College Ave.) will present "Photographs Re-Imagined," a collaboration between Rochester Art Club and Arena Group. For this show, 30 artists who work in various media each created a work based on a photograph from "the essence of another creative piece of art, a photograph," per the provided statement. Each of the muse photographs, selected by Spectrum Gallery director Bill Edwards, were assigned to artists in a lottery process.

The Spectrum Gallery is free and open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Ten participating artists will speak at the gallery each week (on March 13, 20, and 27, at 7-9 p.m.) about the processes they used to make the inspired artworks in the exhibition. Pictured is the glass sculpture created by Olivia Kim, inspired by a photo montage by John Solberg. For more information call 461-4447 or visit
