ORIGINAL MULTI-MEDIA ART PIECE BY ARTIST, JOURNALIST
 JAY SCHADLER TO BE UNVEILED AT LITTLE THEATRE FUNDRAISER

(Rochester, New York) October 22, 2012 – A specially commissioned multi-media art work by Emmy Award-winning journalist, photographer, and artist Jay Schadler will be the centerpiece of items up for bid at the Little Theatre’s annual fundraiser Tuesday evening (October 23).  

The art work, entitled A Little More, will be auctioned off at The Little Celebration, the theater’s biggest fundraiser of the year, with proceeds benefiting Rochester’s independent movie house.

A Little More began with a photograph of The Little’s iconic sign by local photographer Jeffrey Mills. The image was then printed on watercolor paper, allowing Schadler to work chalk pastel into the piece.  The picture was then re-photographed and deeply saturated with various software techniques. Eventually— using computer brushes—Schadler "digs" back into the original photograph to bring back specific details. All of this gives the picture a multi-layered feel, enhancing the “retro” look so representative of The Little. 

Jay Schadler is a two-time Emmy Award winning journalist, photographer and artist. Schadler has been a correspondent and anchor for ABC News for 28 years, reporting for all major platforms including 20/20, PrimeTime, Good Morning America, World News and Nightline. In addition he has contributed special reports to National Geographic TV, Discovery, Bravo and PBS.
