Albany’s Upstate Artists Guild held their fourth annual Black & White Gala at the Normanside Country Club in Delmar last month, and the room was brimming over with a wall-to-wall exhibition of work by Local 518 artists, all for sale, auction or raffle to benefit the UAG.

But the visual artwork was only part of the evening’s focus. With Geo Doody serving as the master of ceremonies, the fundraiser also featured a full evening of entertainment onstage with music by the lounge-rock trio Off the Record (joined by guest saxophonist Tom D’Ambrose), Matt Durfee & the Rattling Baddlies, not an Airplane and young Jesse Cohen-Greenberg, as well as spoken word from Dan Wilcox and Steven Minchin, with DJs Duane Majer and Jay Clarke spinning between acts.
