Mirrored: Artists’ Self Portraits @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall
Sep 20 @ 8:30 am – 6:00 pm
Mirrored: Artists’ Self Portraits @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall | Bradford | Pennsylvania | United States

Selected from the extensive collection of Gerald Mead, a noted Buffalo collector and educator, this exhibition consists of artworks in various media and stylistic approaches. Since the works either depict or refer to the artist who created them, they can broadly
be described as “self-portraits.” The diversity of the decades-spanning works in the exhibition underscores the rich tradition of self-portraiture in the history of art and the continuation of artists’ exploration of this genre in contemporary practice. The artists
included in the exhibition are Laylah Ali, Harvey Breverman, Ellen Carey, Hollis Frampton, Les Krims, Chunwoo Nam, James Pappas, Walter Prochownik, Jason Seeley and Cindy Sherman, among others.

Exhibit your own portrait!

Faculty and staff, students and community members are invited to submit a self-portrait no larger than 11×14 for an exhibition to run in tandem with this exhibition. All artwork is due September 21, and work must be framed and ready to hang. Drop-off work to Courtney Mealy in Room 155 Blaisdell Hall.

Art Exhibit @ Art on Main Gallery
Sep 20 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Art Exhibit @ Art on Main Gallery | Allegany | New York | United States

The Tri-County Arts Council is pleased to announce the exhibit opening for Sanctuary, works by Stephanie Zwyghuizen, at the Arts Council’s Art on Main Gallery, 100 W. Main Street in  Allegany, on Friday evening, September 7th from 6-8 p.m. Appetizers and beverages are 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 October 19, 2018.

Stephanie Zwyghuizen is a professor of mathematics at Jamestown Community College, a naturalist, a photographer, and, most recently, a printmaker. Zwyghuizen finds the logic, planning, problem-solving process, and attention to detail of reduction printing to be a natural fit for her mathematical skills. As she explains, “it is exciting to have an image in my mind and then watch it slowly unfold layer after layer.”

Inspirationfor several pieces in this exhibition came from Zwyghuizen’s recent tour of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Jamestown, NY. She was deeply moved by the Byzantine-style iconography throughout the sanctuary and it prompted her to reflect on the places in which she feels a similar emotional connection. She describes nature as her sanctuary, “somewhere to experience physical, emotional, and spiritual renewal. My artwork attempts to capture those feelings and to share the experience with others.  Even my more whimsical pieces still feature elements from the natural world, these depictions becoming the icons of my sanctuary.”

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.

“Adrift,” — Michael Kunzinger Photography Exhibit

“Adrift,” -- Michael Kunzinger Photography Exhibit

In the Quick Center’s new exhibition “Adrift,” Michael Kunzinger presents photographs of water, light and color. The three elements isolate and at the same time come together to present the essence of abstraction.

“I look for images in reflections that occur on the surface of water,” he said. “Although the dreamlike designs are reminiscent of modern abstract paintings, they are entirely real. The effect is achieved by a combination of ripples in the water, the angle of light, water clarity, and other factors. No oils or digital touch-ups are used; the process begins and ends organically with the art created around us by nature.”

The exhibition is open on the Mezzanine Gallery through Nov. 20.

Kunzinger will visit the Quick Center on Tuesday, Sept. 18, to give a

Holiness and the Feminine Spirit – the Art of Janet McKenzie @ Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts
Sep 21 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Holiness and the Feminine Spirit – the Art of Janet McKenzie @ Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts | Saint Bonaventure | New York | United States

This exhibition brings to the Quick Center a new and diverse view of women and religion. McKenzie explores diversity, children and symbolic imagery in her work. In her paintings, McKenzie pays tribute to women as sacred individuals, leaders for positive change, and mothers.

The exhibition, which opened Aug. 27, is in the Theater Atrium and the Front Gallery of the Quick Center for the Arts. The exhibition will be open through Dec. 2.

On Monday, Oct. 22, McKenzie will visit campus for a gallery talk at 4 p.m., followed by dessert with the artist at 7:30 p.m. Both events will be held at the Quick Center and are free and open to the public.

Reproductions of McKenzie’s art are regularly carried in demonstrations and marches across the United States as visual testaments in support of racial equality and as a voice against prejudice, women’s rights and the LGBTQ community.

McKenzie has received many awards throughout her career and most recently was the subject “The Divine Journey: a Painter’s Mission,” a short documentary about the artist’s work and the creation of a commission for Memorial Church at Harvard University. Originally from New York City, McKenzie now lives and works in northeast Vermont. Learn more about the artist via her website, www.janetmckenzie.com.
