Family fun at the Fall Fest, photography show, and a film screening all set for next Saturday
The David A. Howe Library is excited to host From the Shadows, a display of photographic works by Tracy Rose and Laura Minor. The art show will be on display and open to the public in the Howe Gallery from October 2 until October 27. We encourage community members to join us for a come-and-go reception to meet the artists and learn more about their processes and works on Saturday, October 7, from 6-7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
This show is a collaboration between Rose and Minor. Though they have created their art works individually, their styles complement one another perfectly. Works on display are from Visual Ghost Stories (Rose) and Celestial Bodies and Victorian Illusions (Minor). In these collections Rose and Minor begin with photographs they have either taken or found and then they use various layered artistic processes to transform them into something entirely new. Both artists present beautiful but haunting images that leave the viewer with more questions than answers.
Rose is an art teacher with 22 years of experience in Buffalo Public Schools and, currently, serves as the Arts Coordinator for the Arthur O. Eve School of Distinction, an Arts-integration elementary school. Minor is also an art teacher in Buffalo Public Schools who earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Visual Studies Workshop in association with the College at Brockport.
This program was made possible in part thanks to support from the Allegany County Area Foundation’s Allegany Fund and the Charles and Lorraine Joyce Family Fund.
The David A. Howe Public Library is excited to host a display of Wizard of Oz memorabilia from the collection of the Allegany County Historical Society (ACHS) and a film screening in the Nancy Howe Auditorium on Saturday, October 7. The display will be available for viewing starting at noon and the film will begin at 1:45, with a brief introduction by Dr. William Paquette.
Dr. Paquette, retired history professor and author of The Pink House, recently donated the Wizard of Oz collection, which includes a variety of historic photographs, books by L. Frank Baum, and other memorabilia from the production of The Wizard of Oz film, to ACHS in memory of Diana Anderson LaFaro. Dr. Paquette will be on hand from noon to 1:45 p.m. to answer questions about the memorabilia on display.
The display and film screening are free and open to the public.
