The Veterans Book Project @ KOA Art Gallery

The Veterans Book Project, an art collaboration by Monica Haller, opens at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford this week.

The exhibition will be up Feb. 7 through March 14 in the KOA Art Gallery inside Blaisdell Hall on campus.

An opening reception and gallery talk will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 7. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

The Veterans Book Project consists of 50 books, each written by individuals with firsthand experience of the current American wars. Most of the bookmakers are veterans; some are family members of soldiers, and others are Iraqi or Afghan civilian refugees.

Haller’s aim in creating the Veterans Book Project has been to provide a framework for veterans and others to talk about their memories of war, and to offer exhibitions of the project as quiet spaces for contemplation and thoughtful discussion about war and its impact on our lives.

In 2005, motivated by a desire to understand the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Haller began asking veterans and others to share their experiences with her. She facilitated bookmaking workshops from 2009-2013 in which participants could organize their personal photographs and writing.

Each book stands alone, but each is also a part of the larger Veterans Book Project library meant to be shown in galleries.

The Veterans Book Project has been presented at the Milwaukee Art Museum and has been featured in galleries at Carthage College, Antioch College, Colorado College, University of Wisconsin-Parkside and other locations.

Haller is a media artist who uses design, photo, sound and installation. She often attempts to use materials and experiences her collaborators bring from their own lives, reorganizing these materials or data to propose different ways of seeing.

Haller, who holds a bachelor’s degree in peace and conflict studies and a master’s degree in visual studies, is the recipient of Guggenheim, Jerome, and McKnight fellowships and National Endowment for the Arts support. She has made presentations at the Centre Pompidou, Rhode Island School of Design, and Harvard University.

Readers Night Out @ On the Side Books

Share your love of books with your people….other readers! This is a fun social event to share our favorite books, our current reads and what’s on your list for the rest of the year!

“Through the Eyes of Alzheimer’s” Exhibit @ Art on Main Gallery
Feb 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.
