On a recent shopping excursion to River Street in Troy, I abandoned my spouse and ducked into the Arts Center of the Capital Region, where a gallery full of dazzlingly rich colors greeted me. The 2016 Screenprint Biennial, on view through Friday (December 23), is also hosted at Collar Works in Troy, and is just terrific. After it closes, a selected portion of the show will be mounted in January at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, Connecticut. I’d say, if you miss it here, it might be well worth the trip to Norwalk. But try to catch it here if you can.

Organized by printmaker and RPI lecturer Nathan Meltz, the show handily demonstrates that a blue-collar medium that grew up in the golden age of advertising and was adapted into a fine art in the ’60s and ’70s is still wonderfully alive and well.

When veteran singer-songwriter-rocker Rob Skane released his latest album, “Phantom Power Trip,” he knew it was time to leave his one-man-rocker show behind. He assembled a trio to help him flesh out the sound, and the Rob Skane 3 was born.

On Saturday night, Skane is slated to unveil a new line-up for his trio in concert at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy. Newly recruited bassist Mike Lisi will be making his debut with the threesome, joining drummer Phil Lanz in the pumpin’ rhythm section. Nippertown music fans may remember Lisi from such bands as C. Jane Run and 3 Minute Pop.
