“Through the Eyes of Alzheimer’s” Exhibit @ Art on Main Gallery
Jan 22 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
"Through the Eyes of Alzheimer's" Exhibit @ Art on Main Gallery

Tri-County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening for “Through the Eyes of Alzheimer’s,” at the Art on Main Gallery in Allegany, on Saturday afternoon, January 19 from 1-3pm with a gallery talk at 1:15pm.  Appetizers and beverages will be served at the opening reception which is free and open to the public. The public is invited to come view these works on exhibit through February 22, 2019.

“Through the Eyes of Alzheimer’s” is a series of works by Carol Krieger from her sessions in art therapy. Carol is an artist who worked in traditional tole painting, so art therapy is the perfect continuation of a familiar practice. The exhibition will include paintings that Carole has copied next to her renditions.

Studies show that art therapy gives back in part, what Alzheimer’s has taken away. It stimulates the senses and encourages conversation. More than providing patients something pretty to look at or an exercise to keep them busy, it stimulates the brain, stirring memories. Whether they’re viewing or creating art themselves, Alzheimer’s patients can use it as a form of expression, particularly those individuals who can’t communicate verbally.

The Art on Main Gallery is open Monday through Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Thursdays 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The gallery is closed on weekends.

Photography of Olean @ Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts
Jan 22 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Photography of Olean @ Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts

About two years ago, Patrick Schwabenbauer bought a new camera and began taking photographs of Olean.

It may sound simple enough, but for Schwabenbauer it’s been a long trip back to his hometown and photography. Raised in Olean, Schwabenbauer joined the U.S. Navy after high school. He saw the world via the Mediterranean, Spain, Italy and North Africa, taking photos along the way.

Following his service in the Navy, Schwabenbauer returned to Olean and attended Jamestown Community College and Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, where he studied computer science. During a summer in college, he received an internship at NASA that led to a full-time position at the agency as an aerospace computer engineer after graduation. While working for NASA, Schwabenbauer wrote the initial software that was used on the Mars “Rover Curiosity” designed to explore the Gale Crater on Mars as part of NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission.

He returned to Olean in 2005 because of complications related to his disability. A diving accident had left him paralyzed and unable to walk. With more free timeSchwabenbauer decided to take a passing hobby and spend more time at it. His photos show a bit of his love for the daring. Used to skydiving, Schwabenbauer likes to get the aerial view: He photographs from high up on buildings and scaffolding, where he gets a view not many have seen.

The public will have an opportunity to see a number of the Olean’s man’s photos in a new exhibition that opens Monday, Jan. 14, at the Front Gallery of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University.

“In curating a show of Pat’s work I was struck by the patterns he finds in the landscapes and buildings of Olean. His work captures visual moments and the beauty that we overlook and take for granted each day,” said Evelyn Penman, assistant director at the Quick Center for the Arts.

Schwabenbauer will be in the gallery on the evening of Friday, Jan. 25, to greet visitors an hour before the Friends of Good Music program “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical” at 7:30 p.m. The exhibition runs through Sunday, Jan. 27.

The Quick Center galleries are open from noon until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon until 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Entrance to the galleries is free and open to the public. Please visit the arts center’s website for an informational listing of all gallery exhibitions, programs and performances at www.sbu.edu/quickcenter.

Light and Shadow: Woven Paintings @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall
Jan 22 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Light and Shadow: Woven Paintings @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall

Opening Reception, January 11, 2019 at Noon

In his newest endeavor, Rick Minard decided to return to the figure as the centerpiece of his woven paintings but instead of exploring relationships as in his previous work, he wanted to explore the effect of light and shadows. The same figure is painted separately, with one the focus on highlights and the other on shadows. Minard said he is intrigued by the idea of taking the two opposing aspects of the same person and weaving them together to make a whole entity.
