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.
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.
Artists salons will be held on Wednesday evenings February 22, March 7 and 21. Events are planned from morning to evening on SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day, Saturday, March 31.
