The Chautauqua Craft Alliance summer shows held the weekends of July 9 and August 13 around the perimeter of Bestor Plaza at Chautauqua Institution are nationally recognized as two of the finest juried craft shows in the country. Potters, jewelers, fiber artists, glass blowers, woodworkers and other craft media artists from all over the United States compete for a slot.

BY ALEX WELLS The Chautauqua Craft Alliance was founded in 1982 by a group of studio crafts artists in Chautauqua County with the goal of developing opportunities for Alliance members to show and sell their work. In an early meeting, founding member Audrey

Dowling was quoted as saying ”if this show turns into a ‘big time’ show … it will be a great asset to all of us. Wouldn’t it be great to drive 10 miles to be in a major show instead of several hundred?” Ten years later, when the President of the United States designated 1993 as the Year of American Craft, the Alliance was well

on its way to achieving that dream. Today, Audrey’s aspiration is a reality. The summer shows held in July and August around the perimeter of Bestor Plaza at Chautauqua Institution are nationally recognized as two of the finest juried craft shows in the country. Potters, jewelers, fiber artists, glass blowers, woodworkers and other craft

media artists from all over the United States compete for a slot. Each year the Alliance hires three qualified jurors with diverse and extensive experience in the world of art and crafts to choose the best of the best. The 2009 jurors – SEE CRAFT SHOWPAGE A-4

Publisher’s Word “No Time to Catch Your Breath” Reality check: is it me, or has this been the most awesome summer of fun you can remember? And we’re just getting started! Every weekend my friends and I do our level best to take advantage of all the wonderful things we have to do around Bemus Point and the prettiest lake in NYS. Besides the traditional activities of boating, baking in the sun and barbequing, (known as the “Three B’s”), why don’t you try out the Farmer’s Market, a Jamestown Jammers baseball game, or a dinner cruise on the Chautauqua Belle? This may be the perfect weekend to take your family to the Audubon Nature Center, or one of the many terrific restaurants we’re blessed with here in

Chautauqua County. This weekend looks even more promising. I’m planning on heading over to the Antique Boat Show being held at The Village Casino in good ol’ Bemus. And I’m hoping I’ll still have time to check out the Travis Tritt concert at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena, and if I’m really lucky I’ll get over to the Institution to watch some awesone comedy acts with the “Tim Conway and Friends” show. It would seem there’s a lot going on this weekend, yes? Well, rally the troops, get off your collective keisters and come enjoy all the fun things Chautauqua County has to offer! See you out there!

Chautauqua Crafts CONTINUED FROM COVER Jerry Mead, Bryan Hopkins and Emily Ivey – are no exception. Jerry Mead has curated exhibitions at the Burchfield Penney in Buffalo for a number of years and currently teaches, while exhibiting his own work and guest-curating exhibits in various locations in the Buffalo region. Bryan Hopkins is a nationally recognized potter who teaches ceramics at Niagara Community College. Bryan’s work has garnered him solo shows at some of the most exclusive galleries throughout the U.S. and he has received numerous awards including the 2009 New York Foundation of the Arts Fellowship in Crafts; Best in Show, 16th Strictly Functional Pottery National; 2007 New York State Council on the Arts Special Opportunity Stipend; 2005 Big Orbit Gallery member’s Exhibition; and the Juror Award, Buffalo, NY. Mrs. Emily Ivey completed her Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and has taught two-dimensional design, drawing and sculpture courses in the Department of Visual Art and New Media at SUNY Fredonia for the past ten years.

Emily’s work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art in NY; the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC; the Laguna Gloria Museum in Austin, Texas and Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, Texas. Publications of Emily’s artwork have been included in The New York Times, Village Voice, The Washington Post, Texas Monthly and the Dallas Morning News. It takes the entire year to plan and organize these two summer events. In addition to hiring jurors and going through the jury process, working out the logistics of the shows themselves, and soliciting and reviewing applications, there is also constant dialogue on how to improve each year’s shows. “We want to keep the shows fresh not only for the public but for the artists as well,” says managing director Christina Rausa. “We continue to look for ways to make the artists comfortable. They arrive very early in the morning, many driving from great distances, set up and then tend their booth all day. By the time five-thirty rolls around these folks are tired. During the day we try

to help them in every way we can. Fortunately, I have an outstanding staff of volunteers. I think it – and they’re already doing it.” Ultimately the jurors decide who will be in the show, but the Crafts Alliance is always looking for new applicants to keep the shows fresh. Says Tina Rausa, “there is one question we ask ourselves over and over again – how do we find and attract new artists to apply? The shows are very popular and often all it takes is word of mouth. Our artists love being in our shows and at Chautauqua Institution, and they encourage other craft artists to apply. We also attend other high-end shows to see who’s out there. When we see a good fit we encourage those artists to apply.” In the 2009 season, the Crafts Alliance had 20 new artists. Two of the first time exhibitors, Eric Aceto (July show) and Joseph Graham (August show), received the CA Award for Excellence which assures them a spot in 2010. Eric Aceto, the owner of Ithaca Stringed Instruments, is a longtime luthier (maker of stringed instruments)

and developer of pickups for acoustic instruments. A consummate musician, Aceto began building violins, violas, cellos, mandolins, guitars and basses long before founding his own business. His instrument building skills began with woodworking in art school. “I was playing music and I wasn’t happy with the state of violin amplification at the time, so I started experimenting,” he says. August honoree Joe Graham hails from Jefferson, Ohio and has been a full time Windsor chair maker since 1983. He and his wife Barbara began Lenox Workshops in 1991, hosting woodworkers from as far away as Paris, France and Gutersloh, Germany. Besides chair making, Joe enjoys

honing primitive skills such as bow and arrow making, flint knapping and cordage. Artists are always present at the shows to sell their work and interact with buyers. The Crafts Alliance insists on this because it creates a personal relationship between the buyer and the artist. This way, the public takes home a memory of the craft artist in addition to their purchase. Long term participant in the CA craft shows, ceramist Marvin Bjurlin, says “I prefer to meet the purchaser directly. For many years I packed up my work in my studio, took it to UPS and shipped it to galleries all around the United States. In that case my work was being sold by persons who knew very little about

it. I never got to meet the individuals who would live with what I created. It was frustrating. During the Craft Shows at Chautauqua, I get to meet and visit at length with folks, discussing the aesthetics and process involved in what I make. I still pack and ship all over the US but now I know the very nice people my works will live with. It is much better this way for everyone involved.” The Craft Alliance is a notfor-profit organization whose goal is to promote fine craft art in Western NY through support of craft artists who create outstanding one-of-akind objects of beauty and use available to the public. 2010 Show Dates are July 9-11 and August 13-16.

A gift shop, a “loppis” (flea market), and many other vendors will be present at the festival supplying food or other items for people to purchase. The festival also features two guest speakers: Ben Olander and Barbara Hillman Jones. Olander will be talking about

Raoul Wallenderg, who was part of the Swedish council in WWII and helped to save 120,000 Jewish people by providing them with Swedish passports to escape the Nazi regime and relates Wallenderg’s experiences to modern day life. Hillman will be talking about her book

“Recollections of a Jamestown Swede.” The festival will run Friday 3-10 pm., Saturday 10 am-10 pm and Sunday 10 am-5 pm. Admission is $4 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday after 7 p.m., but $6 Saturday before 7 p.m.

Scandinavian Festival CONTINUED FROM FRONT COVER at another time, the Korv dinner, as well as a Bonfire around 9:45 p.m.; Sunday will conclude the festival with a Swedish pancake breakfast as well as a visit from Vallhund dogs, which are Swedish dogs that were popular in the early ages of Swedish and are now making a comeback in both Sweden and the States. The festival, associated with the American Scandinavian Heritage Foundation, will also be featuring some unique tents and activities as well, according to Sandy. Over the weekend,

people will be going back to their roots living in The Viking Village showing the public how Vikings lived and demonstrate the lifestyle. In the village there will also be a Viking ship replica and games of Kubb, as well as a Kubb tournament. “Kubb is a lawn game where you throw batons to knock down the opponents blocks,” Sandy said. “Once you have completed that process you can toss your baton to knock down the King and be the winner.” There is also a culture tent that

will hold demonstrations, have handanger embroidery, chipand wood-carving, Swedish weaving and felting. The tent also holds “workshops where people can make their own felted items or make a midsummer head wreath or make a clay Scandinavian figurines,” said Sandy. In addition, the culture tent has activities for kids such as a sawdust coin scramble that contains all Swedish coins, a “make-your-own-pendant” station, story telling and much more.

Mayville’s Summer Concert Showcase Features ‘Eclipse’, July 15

FREDONIA – “Babies,” the innovative hit documentary being called “the new ‘March of the Penguins’,” is the next featured film in the 1891 Fredonia Opera House Cinema Series. It will be screened on Sat., July 10, at 8 p.m. and Tues., July 13, at 7:30 p.m. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, “Babies” esimultaneously follows four ebabies around the world – from sbirth to first steps. The children tare: Ponijao, who lives with oher family near Opuwo, hNamibia; Bayarjargal, who sresides with his family near tBayanchandmani, Mongolia; pMari, who lives with her family win Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, swho resides with her family hin the United States, in San eFrancisco. Unscripted and with no -commentary, Chabat calls ethe film “a wildlife film with thuman babies.” Director hBalmès calls it “a nonfiction ofilm of pure observation.” -With only music to support ethe visuals, the filmmakers 0have created a story detached dfrom people analyzing “What should I say” and “How should I behave?” and have gotten something “purely natural, like primary colors or primary elements.” Redefining the nonfiction art form, “Babies”

With only music to support the visuals, the filmmakers have created a story detached from people analyzing “What should I say” and “How should I behave?” and have gotten something “purely natural, like primary colors or primary elements.”

joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all. Roger Ebert, in the Chicago Sun-Times, calls the film “Just babies. Just wonderful.” Lael Loewenstein, of Variety, calls it “refreshing in its methods, impressive in its scope and remarkable in its immediacy.” Tom Long, of the Detroit News, notes “blessed with no narration, an absence of gimmickry and an embracing love for its subject matter, ‘Babies’ is as sweet, joyful and filled with curiosity as a you-know-what.” Mary Pols, of TIME magazine adds “the film’s message is loving and clear: we are all created equal, even if some of us have better access to diapers.” Rated PG for cultural and maternal

nudity throughout, “Babies” runs 79 minutes. The Opera House Cinema Series is sponsored by Cliffstar Corporation. Tickets for Cinema Series movies are available at the door for $7 (adults), $6.50 (seniors & Opera House members) and $5 (students & children) the night of each showing.

Chautauqua Theater CONTINUED FROM FRONT COVER the flow of nature as it weaves through our existence. Inspired by water, plants, the woods and birds, Audrey brings her unique interpretations that collectors have come to appreciate to share this message of beauty. Audrey has earned degrees from SUNY New Paltz and SUNY Fredonia and has completed summer graduate coursework at Alfred University. At these universities she has studied ceramics under Ken Green, Bob Sedestrom, John Gill and Walter McConnell. Throughout her artistic career, Audrey has been intrigued by the versatility of clay as a means of self-expression. “There are endless ways to work with clay that involve both a wide variety of clay types, multiple ways of forming pieces and many different ways of glazing and finishing pieces. That is what has kept me interested in working with clay for the past 35 years, and I expect for many more years. I love the freedom of direction that it gives me- I can combine both my interest in form and painting into each piece.” In addition to clay work, Audrey has paintings and prints being shown in “Explorations”.

From early childhood family walks through woods and fields, to backpacking and camping trips, and simple walks in the backyard, throughout her life, Audrey has spent a great deal of time immersed in the natural world. “The beauty of nature flows through me and on to my paint surfaces. The interpretation of what I see, at times realistic and at other times more abstract, serves as my main inspiration.” Audrey was trained in oil painting at college and has continued to paint using oils, but has also expanded into an exploration of many paint and drawing media including acrylics, pastels, and mixed media. Audrey has recently returned to using block printing as part of her personal expression through art. She is now combining several techniques in some of her pieces. Audrey has received many honors for her work. She has recently received notification that two of her vases have been accepted for publication in 200 Vases 2010, a publication by Lark Books due for release in Fall, 2010. Audrey’s work is frequently shown in national juried exhibitions.

As a very active member of the regional art community, Audrey was one of the co-founders of the Chautauqua Crafts Alliance and the newly formed North Shore Arts Alliance. She is the co owner of Portage Hill Art Gallery which has represented area artist for the past 28 years. She ha shown in the Chautauqua Craft Alliance Shows on the ground of Chautauqua for many year and is also a studio stop on the newly formed Chautauqua- Lake Erie Art Trail. Audrey’s work i always available at Portage Hil Art Gallery, which is her home base and studio location. Portage Hill Art Gallery has a mission of promoting professional level regional arts It is now in its 28th year o showcasing the best art of the region to both local and visiting art lovers. In addition to the fine collection of art, archiva framing is available at the gallery. The gallery is located midway between Mayville and Westfield on Rte 394. It i open daily 10-5 from now unti Labor Day weekend. For more information about Audrey’ artwork or the gallery, please go to <http://www.portagehillgallery com> or call 716-326-4478.
