SPRINGVILLE—Linda Hall and Ann Parker are coming together to present a joint exhibit, Hometowns and Endpapers, in the Harold L. Olmsted Gallery at Springville Center for the Arts. The show incorporates pieces from Hall's Hometowns of WNY collection and Parker's Endpapers collection featuring her photography. This show runs from Saturday, July 22, until Saturday, Aug. 19.
Hall, president of East Aurora Arts Society, grew up in Western New York. She gets her inspiration from the Southtowns Scenic Byway area. With over 15 paintings in her collection, Hall uses a variety of shapes and colors to give the viewer a different perspective of the towns they live in and travel to. She uses acrylic paints on board and canvas.
Parker has been a photographer for over 30 years. She took a liking to endpapers, patterned pages at the front and back of books. After taking pictures of them, she manipulates them, using three-dimensional shapes and objects to create something new and original. Parker's endpapers are printed and mounted on rigid gator board or metal.
The show officially starts with a free reception held in the Olmsted Gallery on Saturday, July 22, from 6:30 until 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
Gallery hours are Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 until 5 p.m., Thursdays from 12 until 8 p.m and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The Harold L. Olmsted Gallery is located in Springville Center for the Arts at 37 N. Buffalo St., Springville. For more information, call 592-9038 or visit SpringvilleArts.org.
