Rembrandt: The Consummate Etcher

Passport to Paris: 19th Century French Prints

The Hyde Collection opens two major exhibitions of old-school European art this weekend in the Charles R Wood Gallery.

Rembrandt: The Consummate Etcher & Other Seventeenth-Century Printmakers features 19 printed works by the Dutch master, which “demonstrate the same genius, range of subject matter, and vitality that he generated with his paint brush,” and 21 etchings by his contemporaries. Genres include landscapes, portraits and religious themes.

The title of Passport to Paris: 19th Century French Prints is, well, self-explanatory. There will be 46 works that “embody the variety of illustrious prints made in the 19th century and rival the prominent paintings of that era.” Artists will include Mary Cassatt, Paul Cézanne, Eugéne Delacroix, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Auguste Rodin and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec; pictured is Renoir’s The Hat Pin (from the Georgia Museum of Art).

Rembrandt: The Consummate Etcher opens Sunday (Jan. 14) at the Hyde Collection (161 Warren St., Glens Falls) and continues through April 8. Passport to Paris: 19th Century French Prints also opens Sunday, and continues through March 25.

Fear Before the March of Flames

Arty metal-core acts FBTMOF and HeavyHeavyLowLow like to noodle on the guitar, like “doodle, doodle, doodle, doo,” before they get all “chugga, chugga, reet.” They also like to scream. (They will do both, in order, when they play Revolution Hall on Wednesday.) Both bands were accused of being screamo and/or emo on their respective debut discs; as a result, both bands have upped the metal ante with each new album release. In the FAQ section of their homepage, FBTMOF even warn fans they will not play one of the more emo songs off their debut CD:

“Will you play ‘On the Brightside’?”

“No, sorry.”

“Please?”

“No.”

“How much will it cost me to get you to play it?”

“A million dollars.”

And to think, the motto on their MySpace page is, “Fuck commerce!”

Fear Before the March of Flames, HeavyHeavyLowLow and special guests will perform Wednesday (Jan. 17) at 7 PM at Revolution Hall (425 River St., Troy). Admission is $12. For more information, call the club at 274-0553.
