Opening Reception for Women Create Exhibit on February 11

Jamestown, NY – “It’s exciting that, after months of planning, the public will be able to enjoy the amazing works of art of women from throughout our region.”

That’s how Jennifer Schlick, co-founder — with fellow artist Debra Eck — of Creative Arts of Women – Western New York (CAW WNY), described their anticipation of the Saturday, February 11 opening reception of the Women Create exhibit.

Saturday evening, February 11, will be the opening reception for Women Create, the first juried exhibit of women’s art at the 3rd On 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York. Featuring the works of 41 regional women artists, the exhibit will include a wide range of art and fine crafts in a variety of media. One of the artworks on display from February 11 through March 31 will be this photograph, “Untitled I,” by Jennifer Janowsky of Lakewood, New York.

From 6-8 pm, they and many of the 41 exhibiting artists will welcome visitors to the 3rd On 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York. The Gallery, at 116 East Third Street, adjacent to the Reg Lenna Civic Center, will display a wide range of art and fine crafts in a variety of media.

The artists, ranging from a high school student through professional working artists, look forward to sharing refreshments with visitors and answering questions about their creations.

Women Create is presented in cooperation with the Arts Council for Chautauqua County. Regular hours will be 10 am-4 pm, Monday-Friday until the closing reception on Saturday, March 31. It can be viewed by appointment by contacting Len Barry at (716) 664-2465, ext. 227.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted and shared between the Arts Council for Chautauqua County and Infinity Visual and Performing Arts for their gracious donation of space.

Other Women Create programs will take place in February and March as well.

With funding provided in part by a Ray and Wyn Ritchie Evans Foundation Artists in the Community Grant administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, three workshops will result in the creation of a Photo Flag Book Installation Project.
