The Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC) and Jamestown Community College (JCC) are proud to present, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, an exhibition featuring the works of Mikel and Dan Wintermantel, opening on Friday, Nov. 2 with a reception at the Center Gallery on JCC’s Olean Campus from 6-8 p.m.
The show will feature paintings by Mikel Wintermantel, C.M., paintings and posters by Dan Wintermantel, as well as a collection of collaborative artwork.
Anne Conroy-Baiter, executive director of the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, commented that the Wintermantel show is well deserved both for their individual talents, but also for their longstanding community involvement.
“Both Mikel and Dan are known for giving back generously to the community, both in terms of painting donations and access to excellent graphic design,” said Conroy-Baiter.
The Wintermantel family has made a lasting impression on this region’s creative economy through their contributions to graphic design, fine art and community involvement. Copley Master Mikel Wintermantel studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and locally with Cole Young. He is renowned for his luminous landscapes, which are shown and collected internationally. Dan Wintermantel’s intensely creative graphic illustrations have been published in national magazines, have received several ADDY awards, and are collected and revered as the pinnacle of what digital art can be.
The show’s reception is free and open to the public, and will feature hors d’oeuvres and happy hour refreshments. The exhibition will be open until Dec. 13. For more information, please call (716) 372-7455 or visit www.myartscouncil.net.
