JAMESTOWN – A major art exhibit featuring several works by Andy Warhol is now on display at Jamestown Community College’s Weeks Gallery – with a reception and dedication ceremony scheduled to take place later today.
The Warhol Effect – which features several pieces by famed artist Andy Warhol along with the works of several national artists influenced by Warhol – opened to the public earlier this week.
Tonight, a public reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Weeks Gallery. Prior to the reception, a Louise Nevelson print, given to the Weeks Gallery by Diana MacKown in memory of JCC English professor Robert Hagstrom, will be unveiled during a special ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
“Warhol Effect,” curated by Weeks Gallery director Patricia Briggs, is anchored by the gallery’s collection of Warhol works. Briggs was recently a guest on WRFA’s Arts on Fire show, and that interview can be found here.
