"Through the Looking Glass"
& "Edwardian Olean"

- Digital Art By Laura Cole
February 12 - April 3
TCAC Gallery, 110 West State St, in Olean NY

"A strong, inherent nostalgia for the flourish of Victorian times and a notion that objects from the past have the power to move us, emotionally, through space and time, to by-gone eras and otherworldly places, is the thread connecting all of Laura's art.  This resurrection of forgotten faces, exposed on old tintype photographs, starts when she scans these analog, 19th Century artifacts into her digital workspace.  She uses Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter to manipulate her unaware models into colorized-characters, in surreal collages that transport the viewer to a place and time of maximalism and fairytale-like whimsy."- Laura Cole

Please join us Friday, February 12th for a socially distanced artist talk and reception.

Two Funding Opportunities for Artists:

NYFA's NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships are $7,000 unrestricted cash awards made to individual or collaborating originating artists living and working in the state of New York and/or Indian Nations located therein. These fellowships are not project grants but are intended to fund an artist's voice.

In an effort to encourage artists across New York State to apply, we are reaching out to arts organizations across the state to ask for help in sharing this news with your creative community.

To help spread the word, I have attached a marketing packet which includes information on the Fellowship, useful links and copy/paste text that you can share in newsletters and social media platforms. 

If you or your community are interested in applying, applications are currently open and will close Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 11:59PM (ET). 

The 2020 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Categories are: 

  • Fiction

  • Folk/Traditional Arts

  • Interdisciplinary Work

  • Painting

  • Video/Film

Deadline: Monday, February 22, 2021, at 5:00 pm.

NYSCA and A.R.T./New York are pleased to announce the 2021 NYSCA-A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fund (A Statewide Theatre Regrant Program). The grant program will provide general operating grants of $2000 to theatres throughout the state with annual budgets of under $500,000. Applicants do NOT need to be members of A.R.T./New York in order to apply. 

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and ensuing field-wide closures, there have been a number of changes to the Creative Opportunity Fund for 2021:
  • All applicants will be applying for a general operating support grant of $2000. 
  • All applicants will submit an organizational budget. Projections for the next fiscal year are not required.
  • Instead of a multi-page narrative, the application includes five short answer questions.
  • Fewer supplemental materials are required.
  • This year applicants can receive support in completing their application through Office Hours instead of Narrative and Budget Review (see below for more information).

The application is now open, and applications will be accepted through Monday, February 22, 2021, at 5 pm.
