Spring Bursting by Audrey Kay Dowling

The Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC) and Jamestown Community College (JCC) invite the public to the opening reception of a new exhibition, Inked: Select Prints by Audrey Kay Dowling, Peg Nocciolino, and Jenny Pope. The exhibition will open on Feburary 28 from 6-8pm at the Center Gallery on JCC’s Olean Campus and runs through April 10.

This exhibition showcases work from 3 contemporary WNY printmakers, each practicing their own unique style. From Westfield, NY, artist Audrey Kay Dowling is a versatile artist whose  work includes painting, ceramics, and mixed-media pieces in addition to her block printmaking.

Peg Nocciolino lives and works as a fine artist, illustrator, designer and educator in Binghamton, NY. The work featured in Inked, inspired by Nocciolino’s personal travels, includes excellent examples of her darkfield monotypes. This unique and celebrated printmaking technique allows the artist to apply ink to a glass plate and then subtract pigment to create the image. This method produces a one-of-a-kind print and the artist utilizes a variety of tools to create texture and depth.

Ithaca area artist, Jenny Pope, is known for her large, color-reduction woodcut prints, often informed by a strong personal interest in flora, fauna, and the environment. Her brightly colored works often feature compelling combinations of species with odd or interesting elements from their natural histories.

The opening reception for Inked will be held from 6-8pm at JCC’s Center Gallery in Olean on February 28. The reception is free and open to the public and includes happy hour refreshments and hors d'oeuvres. The Center Gallery is located on the 2nd Floor of the College Center on Jamestown Community College’s Cattaraugus County Campus at 260 N. Union St. in Olean.
