As we move from autumn into winter, we anticipate the first snowfall of the season. For the current exhibit at the Olean Public Library Art Gallery, the winter of 2015 will be on display in all its glorious textures and shades of white. Photographer Ann Parker has assembled a collection titled “Snow and Ice - Hidden Textures.” As she describes it, “The winter of 2015 was one of snow, ice, whiteness, texture, and depth. The amount of snow received was a boon to any photographer willing to brave the cold temperatures.” The exhibit runs through December 29, 2016.
The Cattaraugus County Arts Council is proud to announce the new exhibit at the JCC Olean Campus Center Gallery, “Working With Paper: Debra Eck & Carey Watters,” which features intricate artworks assembled from paper. Debra Eck is an internationally exhibited book and installation artist who works primarily with paper, text and thread. Carey Watters is associate professor of graphic design at University of Wisconsin-Parkside whose current body of work is a direct result of residencies and travels to Italy researching Byzantine architecture, design, and religious reliquaries. The exhibit runs through December 8.
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 www.events.myartscouncil.net.
