Vino's: Dining is just fine indoors or out Google 翻訳

'Cyrus': A wacky romantic comedy like no other Google 翻訳
No one in the sweet and delightfully odd comedy “Cyrus” is quite “normal.” And thank heaven for that. “Normal” people have their own romantic comedies and very few of those are actually funny these days -- or even watchable (that's especially true if they star Gerard Butler).

Works from WNY Google 翻訳
Every two years since 1969, the Kenan Center (433 Locust St., Lockport) has mounted its Niagara Frontier Art Exhibit, a juried collection of painting and sculpture that features a sampling of work by some of Western New York's most talented artists and artisans. The show gets under way today in the center's House Gallery, which occupies the drawing room and light-filled, second-floor spaces of a stately Victorian mansion on the center's grounds. Out of 130 submissions, 2010 juror Grace Meibohm of East Aurora's Meibohm Fine Arts gallery chose 52 artists for the show. These include the likes of photographer R. H. Stamps, Lockport illustrator Bob Rimmer and painters Joseph Whalen and Priscilla Bowen. The show, which remains on view through Sept. 3, opens with a reception and awards presentation (featuring six prizes, from Best in Show to the Sheila Whalen Memorial Realism in Drawing Award) beginning at 7 tonight.

'Zine around Google 翻訳
The 'zine, a term that came into vogue in the '90s to describe self-published pamphlets that artists and writers with modest means and big ideas have been producing since at least the 16th century, has reached kind of crossroads lately. With the advent of the Internet, the flurry of 'zine-publishing that peaked in the mid-'90s has slowed to a trickle. But there are still many devotees of the form, many of whom have work on view in the Western New York Book Arts Center's show, “An Exhibition of 'Zines from the Sublime to the Silly,” which opens today in the center's gallery at 468 Washington St. Richard Kegler, who co-founded the center and helped to organize the show, along with co-curators Jessica Lewis and Amy Greenan, talked about the idea behind the exhibition. “Somebody said to me, 'Well, are you showing all 'zines?' and I said that would be like showing all books,” Kegler said. “It's a huge, vast area, so we're kind of just showing a cross-section of what's available.” The exhibition will include early 'zine-like literary journal called “some/thing” by Andy Warhol, publications by the band Bikini Kill, which helped kick off the Riot Grrrl movement and a handmade 'zine from the '70s that includes work by Allen Ginsberg and Charles Bukowski. There will also work from local 'zine makers like Greenan and David McNamara. Call 348-1430 or visit . --Colin Dabkowski
