The CCAC Winter Arts Festival at the Lodge at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville is November 19 & 20 and will be an ideal opportunity for artists to sell their work and visitors to begin their holiday shopping. There is a limited number of booth spaces available at this juried arts festival and the final deadline is November 1st so we encourage artists to register online at myartscouncil.net.
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 opening reception for this exhibit is free and open to the public on Friday evening, November 4 from 6-8 p.m. 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.
