Literacy of Love

    Literacy of Love sizedVisit this exhibition with photographs taken by Literacy of Love founder and CEO Cari Matejka. Cari traveled to Uganda in 2012. Her heart and mind were captured after her visit to a village school. Over the years, she developed a personal relationship with many children, and she took an active part in ensuring many were provided for and remained in school. She couldn’t unlearn their difficulties and great needs, and that weight of responsibility paired with her deep love is what motivated her to create Literacy of Love in 2016.

Twin Tier Camera Club Photography Show

    Opening with a reception at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 10, this exhibit features 46 selected works of 13 Camera Club members.

    The Twin Tier Camera Club was started in the early 1970s by Olean businessman Jack Blumenthal. Under the leadership of Dave Whitelaw, it joined the Niagara Frontier Region Camera Clubs organization. In 2012, Blumenthal received NFRCC's Lifetime Achievement Award for his steady and enthusiastic promotion of photography in Western New York.
    The club's mission reflects the leadership of its past presidents and of current president Wade Aiken. The club is an active and successful competitor in regional competitions, but because photography has become such a technical form of the visual arts, TTCC is most invested in the education and development of the knowledge and skills of the region's amateur and professional photographers.

    The club has more than 30 members from the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. More information about the club will be available at the exhibition.
