The Olean Public Library and Cattaraugus County Arts Council are pleased to present Gina Pfleegor’s series of paintings, The (Un)Still Life Series, opening Saturday March 11, 2017.Don’t come to this show hungry, or you will be made all the more ravenous by how realistic these large oil paintings of fruits have been rendered. The images are deliciously alive. Pfleegor explains the exhibit title this way, “Traditional still life objects imply something stagnant and unmoving, which is why I call this body of work “The (Un)Still Life Series,” because to me it is anything but still.” Come to see for yourself how she interprets the rough exterior of a fruit contrasted with the shine of its core. All are welcome at the free opening reception for this exhibit on Saturday afternoon, March 11 from 1-3 pm. The reception is sponsored by the Friends of the Olean Public Library and is open to the public. The exhibit runs through April 21, 2017.

Gina lives in Corning, New York and has been an art teacher at Hammondsport High School since 2001.

Earlier in her career as an artist, Gina was a children’s book illustrator with dozens of books and other educational material published by major publishing companies.

Concert and Discussion on Gender Diversity in Arts @ KOA Speer Electronics Lobby of Blaisdell Hall  | Bradford | Pennsylvania | United States

Poet Tanya Holtland and composer Daniela Candillari will give a joint presentation of their creative work Wednesday, March 29, in the KOA Speer Electronics Lobby of Blaisdell Hall at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

Following the noon concert, Holtland and Candillari will join Pitt-Bradford faculty members Dr. Nancy McCabe, professor of writing, and Dr. Joshua Groffman, assistant professor of music, to discuss issues of gender diversity in the arts.

“This presentation is an opportunity to highlight the role women play in the arts today while raising awareness of barriers that remain to a truly diverse arts environment,” Groffman said.

Candillari is a composer, pianist, conductor, TED Fellow and Fulbright Scholar.

Holtland’s chapbook “Inner River” was recently published by Drop Leaf Press.

During their residency at Pitt-Bradford, Candillari and Holtland will meet with student composers, musicians, and writers, who will have a chance to talk with and learn from these emerging artists who are increasingly prominent in their fields.

Following the residency, Candillari and Holtland will collaborate to write text and music for a new vocal work that will be premiered by acclaimed soprano Lucy Dhegrae at Pitt-Bradford in Fall 2017.

This presentation is sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Year of Diversity and the Pitt-Bradford Women’s History Month Committee.
