OLEAN PUBLIC LIBRARY ART GALLERY OPENING, Thursday, July 9, 2015 THAT MOMENT WHEN. . . Artwork by Anna Pingitore Graphic artist and photographer Anna Pingitore has made more life altering decisions than most people twice her age. Diagnosed with lymphoma at two months shy of her twenty-second birthday, Pingitore has used the totality of her struggle with cancer and learning to cope to create artworks with positive themes that reflect nature, family, and the broad spectrum of raw human emotion. Her show titled “That Moment When…” will open at the Olean Public Library Art Gallery on Thursday, July 9, 2015 from 6 - 8 p.m. with a free reception open to the public. The exhibit runs through August 28, 2015.

The North Union Street Art Walk has “Opened!” Twenty-eight artworks by a dozen area artists have transformed twenty-two storefronts on Olean’s North Union Street (between State and Wayne) into an outdoor art gallery. One pedestrian commuter has phoned CCAC to express appreciation, telling us that she leaves home earlier now so she can spend more time looking at the art on her way to work. The Art Walk was a joint venture produced by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, Olean General Hospital, Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation and the City of Olean.
