Tri-County Arts Council to host fine art, craft market in Ellicottville


OLEAN, N.Y. — The Tri-County Arts Council recently introduced and would like to welcome the community to the inaugural Ellicottville Fine Art and Craft Market in Ellicottville, on the lawn of the 1887 Building on U.S. Route 219 in the center of town, on Sept. 2 and 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., both days.

This event is a partnership between the Tri-County Arts Council, Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Ellicottville.

This juried show features the work of some of the region’s best-known artists and fine craftspeople, many of whom also have international reputations in galleries and fine art shows throughout the United States and abroad. An intimate evening of fine arts and crafts, Ellicottville Fine Art and Craft Market, is an opportunity to add to or begin an art collection, purchase a one-of-a-kind gift, and meet the artists and makers behind an impressive collection of works.

Indeed, the Tri-County Arts Council is comprised of member artists and craftspeople who reside in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.

Many of those members will be part of the Ellicottville Fine Art and Craft Market, including fine artist Sean Huntington, TCAC Exhibitions Coordinator.

“We want to expose the residents and visitors of Ellicottville to the amazing talent that this region has to offer,” said Huntington. “Plus, buying from local artists that you can actually meet and form a relationship with is so much more satisfying than getting some anonymous art from a big box store. Fill your home with pieces that mean something to you! “

Participating artists include Robin Zefers Clark, Lisa Conn, Denise Drummond, Pam Gifford, Ed Green, Bonnie Hedden, Lisa Hodge, Michelle Hoff, Sean Huntington, Keith McKale, Kaylee Taylor, Eileen Weishan, Mike Weishan, Mikel Wintermantel and many more. Their mediums include oil painting, gouache, watercolors, wood, sculpture, mosaic, glass, photography, pottery, sculptures, fiber, jewelry and so much more. There is so much talent in this region, and this is a great place to experience it.

The inaugural Ellicottville Fine Art and Craft Market promises to be a great event in Ellicottville. “We are hoping to make this an annual event,” said Bernstein. “This is a wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy fine arts and crafts right in their own community, beyond the walls of a gallery.”

Sponsorship for the event is currently being sought. Please contact Tri County Arts Council for more information about becoming an event sponsor.

The market will be held rain or shine. The event is free with plenty of nearby parking, For more information, visit
