The Arts Council for Wyoming County (ACWC) is welcoming the public back to 31 S. Main St. in Perry on September 2 with a new look and preparation for two new events since operations paused in March as a response to the Coronavirus.
The events are:
- September 11: In Memory of Sarah. This will be an exhibition in honor of artist Sarah Hoeppner. Individuals will have an opportunity to view a select collection of Sarah’s work from 11am to 6pm.A short reception to celebrate Sarah’s life will be held live and streamed through Facebook from 6:30 – 7pm. Friends will have an opportunity to share memories of Sarah publicly during this time.
- September 26:A book release party will be held from 11am—1pm celebrating two long awaited publications: Our Farms, Our Families and As I See It, featuring the art of Ted Wetherbee. Both books were produced by the ACWC and will be available for purchase at the release event.
Our Farms, Our Families is part of the culminating project from a larger grant that was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council. It was awarded to produce an innovative art and agriculture multimedia program in Wyoming County. The works of ten ACWC member artists are featured in the book.
As I See It is a coffee table book that chronicles painter Ted Wetherbee’s significant body of work from young adulthood to the present.
Artists will be available to sign the books including Ted, who will sign both. Beautiful canvas tote bags will also be available for sale, but will be FREE with the purchase of any book.
