Bobby’s exhibit at CCAC’s Art on Main Gallery consists of contact prints from his 8” x 10” large format analog camera. Each 8” x 10” negative is in a double-sided case which slides into the camera ready to be exposed. These exposures take anywhere from half a second to 30 minutes, so this camera is used more for still life and documentary subjects rather than people. The images in the exhibit are a series of objects which have personal significance for him - including a candelabra, an antique sewing machine, a sailboat, and baby shoes, among others.
The Cattaraugus County Arts Council is pleased to invite the public to the exhibit opening for Stephanie McMahon: Earthworks, at Jamestown Community College Center Gallery in Olean, on Friday evening, January 27 from 6-8 p.m. Appetizers and beverages are served at the opening reception which is free and open to the public. The paintings included in Earthworks reference the environment around the artist’s home in rural Alfred, New York. In this body of work, McMahon explores an abstract language informed by the natural forms and structures that populate the landscape and the history and experiences that shaped it. These works are on exhibit through March 9.
Nicholas Torsell's photographs in the exhibit, “Ghosts in the Sunlight” at first glance seem to be starkly beautiful empty spaces, but if you linger and let your imagination people the space with what might have been there, you will see the potential that Torsell finds in everyday emptiness. All are welcome at the free opening reception for this exhibit on Thursday evening, January 12 from 6 - 8 p.m. The reception is sponsored by the Friends of the Olean Public Library and is open to the public. The exhibit runs through February 17, 2017.
Patrons can find regional arts & cultural events there and organizations can post their events directly!
REGIONAL EVENTS CALENDAR LAUNCHED! Promoting the cultural arts in our region is a primary mission of the Cattaraugus County Arts Council. To that end, for several years CCAC has been publicizing regional events through an email newsletter sent to a CCAC subscriber list. To provide easier access by the public and give organizations the ability to submit their own events directly, CCAC has commissioned a Regional Community Events website calendar. Cultural organizations, non-profits, artists, and businesses can submit arts events for any of the following categories: dance, fairs & festivals, film, galleries, music, reading & lectures, theater, and classes. Patrons of the arts can find regional arts events listed in one calendar so you can easily find events and groups you like to see and support. Come one and all to find the arts at events.myartscouncil.net.
CCAC's programs and services are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support comes from the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning, and Tourism, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, community business sponsors, and private memberships and donations.
CCAC is the proud recipient of a 2015 Give for Greatness General Operating Grant, a program of Arts Services Initiative of Western New York.
