Local art, fine crafts and reprints of historical photographs will be available for purchase at the Springville Center for the Arts through Dec. 21

The Harold L. Olmsted Gallery inside Springville Center for the Arts will be hosting a local art and fine craft sale through Dec. 21.

Gift-able artwork and fine crafts showcasing local artists will include paintings, drawings, jewelry, pottery, fiber art and more will be available right off the wall for immediate purchase.

A collaboration with the Concord Historical Society, an exhibit and sale of historic photographs will also be on display. The idea for this project was born out of conversations between Joyce Abbott and Lynne Giroux, who volunteer for both Concord Historical Society and SpringvilleCenter for the Arts.

Having observed that Concord Historical Society has many historic Springville photos in their archives that are rarely seen by the public, they decided to organize an exhibit and sale of reprinted photos and postcards.

Members of Springville Center for the Arts Gallery Committee offered artistic input and many hours of expertise to mount this exhibit. Twenty images have been framed for purchase, with smaller matted and unmatted versions also available.

All photographs are dated between the 1890s and the 1940s. Historic photos feature scenes from both the north and south sides of Main Street, Cascade Park, Village Green Park, Springville Canning Company, B.R. & P. Railroad Depot, the bridge across Cattaraugus Creek and Bertrand Chaffee Mill.

Both exhibits will be on display from Saturday, Nov. 30 until Dec. 21. Gallery hours are Wednesday and Friday from noon to 5 p.m., Thursday from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Springville Center for the Arts is located at 37 N. Buffalo St., Springville, NY 14141.
