This show, organized by the Arts Council of Wyoming County (ACWC), features art made specifically for the show by artists living in Allegany and Wyoming counties and is meant to bring awareness to the mental health challenges that are prevalent in rural communities. The show was first on display in May at the ACWC Gallery in Perry and has since been traveling around the region.
The Rural Arts Road Show is modeled after a project in Australia’s rural Tasmanian area, which, like Wyoming and Allegany Counties, has a high rate of social isolation, suicide, and depression. A mental health facilitator will be present during the opening reception – September 14, 6-7:30 p.m. – to facilitate discussions about mental illness/wellness that may be brought up by the art on display.
A rotating series of exhibitions are on view in the TSI Harland Snodgrass Gallery in Harder Hall throughout the semester. Time Space Interface (TSI) Harland Snodgrass Gallery is located in the lobby level of Harder Hall on the Alfred University campus. Harland Snodgrass was the founder of the Media Program in the School of Art and Design and was an original faculty member of the School’s Foundations Program. He served as professor of painting and video arts from 1969-85.
The David A. Howe Library is very excited to welcome Dylan Newton back to celebrate the release of her most recent novel, CHANGE OF PLANS! She will captivate from the Nancy Howe Auditorium Stage and then be on hand to meet fans and sign books. This event is free and open to the public but, if you don’t already have a copy of Dylan’s latest and would like to get one, The Bookworm, from East Aurora, will be on hand with copies for sale.
Dylan was born and raised here in Western New York and the library was her favorite hangout. After over a decade working in corporate America, Dylan quit to pursue her passion: writing books. The gamble paid off with eight published novels, and more to come!
Dylan’s latest romantic comedy, CHANGE OF PLANS was released in August 2023 and received a starred review from both Publishers Weekly who called it, “a first-rate small-town romance,” and a starred review from Library Journal, who called it a book “for readers looking for depth and substance in their romance.” The third in her Matthews brothers’ series, the book also received acclaim from The Nerd Daily and Kirkus.
