An opening reception is slated for Friday, April 15, 7-9 p.m., gallery at 100 E. Second St., Jamestown. The ongoing show can be viewed until Wednesday, May 11 during regular gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday, from 1 to 7 p.m.

Work by Graphic Designer/Photographer Lori Deemer of the Department of Marketing and Communication, Assistant Professor Sue McNamara of the Department of Business Administration, and Associate Professor Jill Johnston of the Animation and Illustration area in the Department of Visual Arts and New Media will be included in the exhibit.

The women are among 46 artists from Western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania chosen to be featured in Women Create, a community-minded, volunteer-run initiative to support and celebrate women artists. There were over 160 submissions encompassing several different media styles of art and fine crafts.

On Wednesday evenings throughout the duration of the exhibit there will be salons with a participating artist, and all pieces will be for sale.

Women Create will also provide Girl Scouts with the opportunity to earn a limited number of Art Gallery patches. They will be available for $3 each to those who complete at least four patch activities listed on a card provided at the gallery entrance.

Internationally exhibited artist, curator and educator Debra Eck and photographer and blogger Jennifer Schlick are creative directors for Women Create. They are assisted by mixed media artist Katherine Turnquist.
