EXHIBIT: FIBER & FABRIC, January 8-February 20, 2015
CCAC is proud to announce that beginning in 2015, we are assuming the curatorial duties for the Olean Public Library Gallery exhibits.
Presenting work from around the western New York region, the first exhibit is Fiber & Fabric with works by artists Medis Kent and Carlyn Yanda.
Kent, from Findley Lake and Yanda from Alfred, are western New York artists who create vibrant contemporary fiber art. Kent's pieces are developed by integrating various fibers into a wool ground either by hand or machine. Yanda works with hand-dyed or vintage fabrics, and stitches these pieces into lively, abstract patterns.
The gallery is located at 134 North 2nd Street in Olean, and the hours are: M-Th 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.; Fri. 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Sat. 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sun. 1- 4 p.m.
This show is the first in a series administered by the Olean Public Library and the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, and is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
